Full Description: The most magnificent Quinta in the entire Central Valley.
If you have the means, this is an opportunity to buy the most magnificent quinta in all the central valley. It is a must see by day and by night. Absolutely majestic. This property has security, privacy, tranquility, beauty, location and views.
Rancho Marqui is the 12.5 acre (5 hectare) super secure compound WITHIN the exclusive community of estates only, located in the high end suburb of La Garita de Alajuela just seven miles from the airport. Rancho Marqui has a twelve foot painted beautiful block and brick wall around the entire 12.5 acre property that was previously electrified on the top. There is a guard house at the entrance and a two story guard house upon entering the quinta as well as other structures. The urbinacion itself, is one of the most secure because of its physical location in addition being a twenty four hour guarded and gated community. The urbinacion is bordered on three sides by rivers and gorges and is in the exclusive town of La Garita de Alajuela, which itself is very tranquil as it sits on a ridge all just 7 miles from the main airport of Costa Rica, Juan Santa Maria, and at the intersection of the Pan American highway and the main road to the beach resorts of Los Suenos and St. Regis.
The property was designed and built buy Marsel, a former owner of the fern fincas in Poas. This was the first developed property , and he bought the best lot with the best views. Marcel built the main house where he could sit on his large terrace and overlook his Olympic sized pool with a fully equipped Rancho with swim up bar to look at his fern farms in Volcan Poas. (This property also has a helicopter pad, which he would use to visit his ferns.) At night you can look out over the lights of Alajuela and the central valley and watch them twinkle.
The main house is a 7,000 square foot Spanish architecture one story villa. It has four bedrooms + office/bedroom + semi attached maids apartment (six bedrooms) and five and a half baths plus maids full bath (six and a half baths + and additional two half baths in the pool Rancho). The master suite features (two full baths his and hers) each with walk in closets and one bath (hers of course) has a giant walk in Jacuzi with waterfall. Also giant kitchen with large island and family room, a large living room attached to the grand terrace in front of the pool, a dining room and another family room, and indoor garden, three story garage, laundry room and nice maids room suite.
Other structures include a two story guard and guest house, a helicopter pad and hanger which can be converted into additional housing, housing for two of the three wells, a cooking house, a house for the generator a house for the water tank a house for the pump station and more. Also a small corral for horses, which we keep on the back two hectares.
The location here is fantastic just 7 miles from the airport on the main road to los Suenos, St. Regis and other beach resorts yet very peaceful. Located in the exclusive gated community where the minimum lot size is nearly two acres.
The town of La Garita is my favorite and the favorite of many Costa Ricans who have old family estates here. Lots of restaurants, a zoo, Orchid Garden and Café, a vineyard, five star Martino Resort and Spa and much more. Considered one of best areas for plusvalia, appreciation.
