About This Property
This warm and inviting custom-built home combines the best of two worlds—a log cabin living in a tropical paradise. The 1173 sq ft home is set on 1.25 acres of land with shady, mature trees that make you feel like you are in the middle of nowhere when in reality you are just a couple of minutes from the bustling community of Villareal; just 7 minutes more and you are sinking your toes in the sand of Tamarindo Beach.
The first thing you notice about this home is the deep, covered porch that runs the length of the house. Big double doors and huge windows open to a spacious open-concept living, dining, and kitchen area. Everywhere is the glow and warmth of wood, from the hardwood floors to the walls paneled with half logs to the beams in the vaulted ceiling. Two airy bedrooms have their own floor-to-ceiling tiled bathrooms. The clerestory roof is designed to vent the heat and keep the interior nice and cool. It is obvious this home was lovingly built by an artisan.
But wait! There’s more! On the same property is what is affectionately known as the Hobbit House, a whimsical 322 sq ft space tucked into the hillside. Is it a guest cabin? An art studio? A meditation room? Let your imagination run wild in this unfinished space with its tree-trunk posts, circular windows, curved ceiling, and sod roof. If you love nature and wildlife this is the perfect house for you! Call us for a showing.
