New Condos Online brings you this stunning new development in Costa Rica: Hacienda Matapalo is located between Quepos and Domincal, which will soon be connected by the southern spur of the Costanera highway, and occupies 665 acres of prime land between the coast and the mountains. Rising to almost 2,000 feet above sea level, it includes a 125-acre nature preserve at its highest elevation to ensure the pristine local environment will forever remain part of this upscale development.
The gated community gives investors a choice of 1.25-acre sites for custom-designed homes, as well as single-family dwellings, villas, and condos, all with state-of-the- art connectivity and 24-hour security. Given the similarities of landscape and climate with the South Pacific, the architecture draws on local materials and renewable resources, inspired by Polynesian and Balinese design well suited to an indoor/outdoor lifestyle.
Currently available are:
‘The Polynesian’ two and threebedroom condos, completely detached from neighboring units and situated in four-story buildings with tropical forest views; ‘Las Floras’ freestanding single-family villas in configurations ranging up to 3,100 feet, three-bedroom homes over two stories; ‘Las Vistas’ low-density town-homes, all of which have incredible ocean views. Private homesites are also on offer for those who wish to build a custom residence in a choice of architectural styles.
The community center and ‘El Corazon’ clubhouse, with panoramic views over the Pacific, houses a variety of swimming pools, a fully equipped fitness center, sporting facilities and spa.
For those who prefer to swim in the ocean, Hacienda Matapalo’s own shuttle transports guests to its private beach club. And the private equestrian center means you can explore the forest trails on horseback, cooling off in waterfalls on the way.
Less than half a mile away from 25 miles of virgin coastline, close to Playa Linda, Playa Matapalo, and Playa Ventanas, and in an area where development will be strictly limited, Hacienda Matapalo has been identified by International Living Magazine as possibly the best investment opportunity in Costa Rica.
To date, almost one third of purchase here have been made via Individual Retirement Accounts (also known as Self-Directed IRAs). US retirees are free to undertake tax-free rollovers from existing retirement accounts to Self- Directed IRAs, whereupon they can invest in any form of real estate they wish. As you’d expect, there are some important rules and regulations to comply with to satisfy the IRS, but Michael Starkey, one of the developers, in an experienced financial planner and is available to counsel interested parties.
