Hi everybody ?
We continue to discover for you. Our container house on today’s tour is from Costa Rica.
The Cintron Container House is located only 400 meters off the coastal highway, giving you easy access to beautiful Southern Costa Rica. Featuring a 180-degree ocean view, this 2-story container home is all the rage. It features desirable amenities, including year-round sunsets, lush trees, a completely fenced in yard, and stunning views of the local whale tail. This three-bedroom, two-bath home would make the perfect family home or vacation rental for you.
Recently, container homes have become more popular since they are eco-friendly, sturdy, and safe. This three-bedroom container house consists of four high-cubed containers, two on each side of the house. Each 40-foot shipper container is 40 ‘long, 8 ‘wide, and 9’6” high. They are constructed out of secure steel, and the outside is done with solid cement construction.
This house is light and open with modern touches.
The entire house is done in white, and those homeowners wanting a white kitchen will love this house. The kitchen features white cabinets, a white Kitchen Island, and white barstools. It also includes stainless steel appliances, a wooden dining table, and seating for eight. Some colorful artwork on the walls brightens it up. The kitchen flows right into the living room. It features an off-white sectional and two off-white ergonomic chairs. The living area also includes a glass coffee table that uses tree stumps as the base. In fact, you’ll see several tree stumps as décor throughout the room. The living area leads out to the cement patio and the pool area. Both of these areas need some work but you’ll be able to add your own charm to it.
This home needs some work to be finished. The original homeowner had some great visions but ran out of money. The guest bathroom needs some work, and the pool still needs tile laid. It’s the ideal home for you to put own personal touches on it by finishing both the exterior and the interior.
The home is situated on .64 acres and a public road. It can easily be sold as-is, or there is ample room to build an additional home, which would work great for a rental property. Being only 400 meters from the coastal highway and five minutes from the center of Uvita gives you easy access to beaches, local restaurants, and the weekly farmer’s market.
The town of Uvita has everything you’ll want from everyday necessities to outdoor eco-adventures.
Each Saturday, the Uvita Farmer’s Market is open from 8 am until noon. It’s conveniently located off the coastal highway, and it makes it easy to purchase organic produce, homemade bread, and natural bath products. Uvita features many restaurants and cafes serving local cuisines. If you are planning to move here full-time, Uvita also offers good schools that include 3 private schools, which offers a bilingual curriculum.
However, outdoor adventures are the main draw to live near Uvita. Where else could you see a whale’s tail? To get a closer look, you’ll need to visit Marino Ballena, National Park. At the tip of the tail, you’ll see tide pools and rock formations. Uvita is also known for its waterfalls, such as the Uvita waterfall with a natural waterslide and swimming holes. There are many more eco-adventures to explore here. Come see what Southern Costa Rica has to offer.
