New Community in Atenas Offers Homes Under $200,000

Posted by Paradise Profits | January 24, 2010


Private Gated Mountain Community in Atenas
Enjoy big mountain views for affordable prices in this new community in Atenas Costa Rica. Atenas is a tranquil coffee town that is attracting a large number of expats.  Located about halfway between San Jose and the central Pacific beaches, Atenas has convenient access to both, without the hustle and bustle of the city or heavy tourist traffic.
Nature and privacy surrounds you in this wonderful new private community in the mountains of Atenas.  With only five home sites, two of which have completed homes for sale, intimacy, security and privacy are found at every site – along with mountain fresh air and intense views. It is rare to find affordable quality with these stunning views and privacy only 10 minutes from Atenas central.
Retirement or Vacation Homes in Atenas

Each of the finished homes, starting at $173K, is below $200K. They are cozy but classy affordable retirement or vacation homes with nice finishing details including granite countertops, custom wood cabinets, and quality fixtures and faucets.  Beautiful vaulted wood ceilings keep them cool all day and each room has a ceiling fan.

Community Infinity Pool and Pavilion

The homes are wired for a dishwasher, alarm, phone, SAT TV and high-speed internet is readily available, and house 1 has GE stainless steel appliances.  They’re all built to North American standards with modern plumbing and electricity, electric on-demand hot water throughout, screened windows, and much more.

The developer has predesigned house plans ranging between 1200 – 1600 sf for the remaining landscaped lots and is offering reconstruction pricing. Buyers, however, can customize the plans and finishing details to suit their desires. Appliance and furniture allowances come with each home including the finished homes.
Quality Homes Under $200K

The community is in a private mountain setting with an electric gated entry and amazing views of mountains, volcano peaks, and the Central Valley.  There is a communal infinity pool and picnic pavilion, along with many fruit trees and coffee plantings in the common area.  Each owner will have equal shares of the common area. The community is at nearly 4000 feet above sea level offering the most perfect year-round temperature of 70s during the day and 60s during the evening.

Big Mountain Views

Atenas is said to have the Best Climate in the World.  Although the year-round temperatures are wonderful, I suppose the biggest reason for Atenas’ claim to fame is the very predictable rain patterns in the rainy season. Typically, it is sunny from 6am to around 2pm followed by an hour or two of rain.  This allows residents to enjoy productive days during the rainy season (all year round) as opposed to other surrounding areas.
Atenas is home to a large expat retirement community who enjoy the small-town feel, but also the many internet cafes, restaurants, 4 large grocery stores, 4 good-sized hardware stores, multiple pharmacies, private clinic, and much more. The friendly local atmosphere invites you in with wonderful people, a farmers market every Friday, and many yearly festivals.
The new Caldera highway, which is confirmed to open by the end of this month (January 2010), exits into Atenas and will dramatically reduce driving times to the city and the beach. Trips to Escazu and Santa Ana will be an estimated 20 minutes, while going to the beach may be as short as 30 minutes, all while residing in the peaceful setting of Atenas.
This new private community in Atenas offers homes that are low-maintenance, perfect for retirement or part-time expats.  It is a rare blend of quality, privacy, tranquility, security and affordability.
