Casa Oshun is true luxury eco-living, built with dedication to sustainability, using the highest quality natural materials: wattle and daub (adobe with an interior bamboo lattice structure for seismic safety), sustainable teak, salvaged local hardwoods, clay tiles, copper pipes, thatch and paints made from natural pigments. High-end appliances provide modern convenience, and the open-air design keeps the air fresh and breezy even during the hottest months. This home built by master craftsmen backs up to a nature refuge and has a private trail to one of the Machuca River’s best swimming holes. A spacious deck wraps around the entire house, with a great central outdoor area that includes a cozy nook, an airy open space for yoga and movement, a dining room under the thatched cathedral ceiling, and a hammock by the fig tree– the ultimate spot for relaxation. Surrounded by big, gorgeous trees, there’s no better place for birdwatching. The light-filled open kitchen and living area features wood & glass accordion doors that can be completely opened or closed, and all bedrooms and bathrooms also have wood & glass doors and screens, for a perfect balance of outdoor living and indoor sanctuary. The hexagonal master bedroom–built in loving homage to the sacred geometry of honeybee architecture–has air conditioning for utmost comfort. All other rooms stay cool with fans and natural airflow; our fortunate location by the forest and river keeps temperatures perfect throughout the year. The main floor features the kitchen, living room and dining room, the master bedroom, two additional bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and a laundry room with a top of the line, green-certified clothes washing machine and dryer: below the kitchen is an office/guest room with a half bathroom and a private patio facing the pond. The land features two beautiful ponds with pumps that keep the water in circulation, an abundance of productive fruit trees, including mamon chino (rambutan), lime, mandarin, avocado, starfruit, fig, mango, and water apple, and an organic garden, planted behind the house for easy access from the kitchen. Lot has plenty of space for a guest house if you wish to continue building. This spectacular property is a 5-minute walk from the community salt-water pool, rancho, yoga shala, and community gardens. A stroll down a shady trail above the river will take you to the sports court, playground, and community library. Hike up the road, past neighboring permaculture communities of Alegria and Tacotal, to find more pristine, sparkling waterfalls, huge, natural boulders, and deep swimming holes, or veer off on trails for breathtaking views of the Machuca River Valley. Enjoy having organic fruits, vegetables, dairy products, and grass-fed meats and superfoods delivered to your door by local farmers. A community school bus takes kids to and from Casa Sula, our local progressive democratic school. Life doesn’t get any dreamier than this. 1 master bedroom 3 additional bedrooms 2 full baths, 1 half bath Laundry room Expansive deck 1 Bodega / Storage space
