A spectacular property nestled near towering peaks, Tierra Serena offers a rare combination of natural beauty and privacy in Costa Rica’s famed Orosi Valley. The stunning 80-acre property has miles of nature trails, forested hillsides and meadows, 90-foot-tall eucalyptus trees, tumbling streams and large ephemeral waterfalls, and a Rainforest Alliance-Certified Coffee farm. Given the unspoiled scenery, it is hard to believe that the property is only minutes from Lake Cachi and a short drive to the provincial capital of Cartago and only 38 miles southeast of the main international airport.
The property has three private entrances. After entering the main gate, the arrival to the house is five hundred meter long and follows a beautiful stream with numerous pools and foot bridge crossings. The entry is landscaped with native fruit and flowering trees with spectacular mountain, valley, and lake views.
Surrounded by pristine scenery and adjacent to protected federal land, the property feels much larger than its deeded acreage. The owners have steadily upgraded the property with hundreds of native hardwood trees, steel bridges for stream crossings, trails, a lake lookout structure, and interior roads.
The main house, designed by a Chicago-based international architectural firm, includes a ‘great room’ combining a modern spacious kitchen, dining area and living room, a master bedroom with bath, two offices, guest rooms, laundry and a view of the garden, rainforest and waterfall. At the center of the house sits a tiered garden with a covered veranda on three sides that has seating and wonderful views.
The home includes two private guest rooms and a detached rancho with a coffee wood oven, sink, countertops, and seating. Also included is a rustic two-bedroom guest cabin a half kilometer from the main house, an adjacent farm office building and additional outbuildings dispersed on the property.
