Fabulous Tropical Mountain Home for Sale on 1.3 Acres in Jaramillo, Boquete – Furnishings Included – More Land Available if Desired
This fabulous, tropical mountain home with spectacular views is now available for sale.
As you rise above Boquete’s downtown into the beautiful green of the Jaramillo mountains, you ascend on a loop road that eventually circles back to town.
Near the top of this paved road and about 12 minutes from downtown, is this fabulous home and property.
The property is gorgeous with lush vegetation. The views from this inspiring home reach all the way across the coastal plain to the Pacific Ocean well below.
And looking to the West, you have a glorious view of Volcan Baru, Panama’s tallest peak from the sky deck.
The environment here has nice, clean air. It is in a beautiful, natural setting with so many wonderful birds.
One of the current owners is a very experienced architectural designer and builder. He has combined all of this skills and experience to make this home one of the best in Boquete.
On the ground level of the house is the garage. An entry vestibule leads upstairs to the main floor.
The ground level has plumbing and could easily be converted into another bedroom/bathroom, a recreation/TV room, or a small apartment for a cook or caretaker/gardener or for a possible rental/Air BnB space.
The main floor consists of the living room, dining room, kitchen, bunk room, dressing area, master bedroom, bathroom, guest bathroom and laundry. The interior of the house is finished with ceramic tile floors throughout.
The kitchen cabinetry was created with treated cedar hardwood. The kitchen has a new Samsung French door style refrigerator, and a Whirlpool gas range and oven. There is also an Amana dishwasher, a Sharpe Carousel microwave and a Cuisinart toaster. All of the minor appliances and many other items are included.
The main floor also showcases lovely outdoor spaces; a west entry terrace, a huge south terrace (976 square feet/90 square meters), and a covered east terrace. This house makes living the indoor/outdoor life a breeze.
The tower suite sits atop the residence and boasts a splendid, enormous view. The suite has a closet and half bath.
The suite opens to a private, outdoor sky terrace with a spectacular view from southeast to north. The sky terrace includes a lockable patio furniture storage area.
The house is being sold furnished (unfurnished is also an option). Most of the furniture has been custom crafted for the home.
The amply sized storage shed/bodega across the driveway securely stores firewood, yard tools and miscellaneous items.
The home is not visible from the road, affording excellent visual and acoustic privacy. All exterior openings (windows and doors) have lockable steel security shutters or permanent steel bars for excellent security. It was designed to be extremely secure for leaving vacant when necessary. The current owners report they have left the house unattended for many extended occasions without incident. With the gate locked and the steel security shutters closed, the entire house is like a fortress. Built with welded steel, cement and tile construction, this fabulous house is soundproof, very fire resistant and insulated. Its thoughtful construction also provides extraordinary seismic protection.
The exterior French doors are custom made of almendro (almond wood), a vary hard and heavy tropical hardwood. The interior doors are custom made teak. All of the exterior security doors and window shutters are made of steel.
The property is in a quiet neighborhood well above the bustle of the Boquete downtown. The current owners report that the neighboring families are excellent. They also cite that the “glory of this location is threefold: the huge view, the huge tree and the perfect climate.”
More from the owners:
“•The view goes from Punta Burica in the southwest (60 miles to the southwestern tip of Panama) along the Pacific coast 35 miles to the south, and southeastward 90 miles to the Isla Coiba, a viewscape of 250 square miles.
• The big tree: it is a strangler fig of the Ficus family, what the Panamanians call a “higueron.” It has been estimated to be 275± years old. In wonderful health, its center is hollow where the former host tree grew. A higueron tree starts as a vine that climbs the host tree, then it blooms out to become a full tree on its own. The host tree is strangled and dies, leaving the beautiful center chimney. Using the many handholds, we have climbed up forty feet to the “porthole” that faces southeast.
• The climate is perfect. In the tropics (8.5° north latitude here) it is hot at the coast and in David, with days in the high 80s and mid 90s. But, as you gain altitude, the temperature drops 3° for every 1,000 feet. So, at our house at 4,920′ above sea level, we are 14° to 15° cooler than the Pacific seashore. Our days are in the low 60s when we have breakfast, and the high 70s at mid-day. Nights are in the low 60s. We have seen temperatures above 80° no more than five or six times in 18 years.”
There is a transferrable tax exemption on the house to March 5, 2029.
Want more land? This house can be purchased with additional land of 2,718 square meters that would bring the total to 8,007 square meters; about 2 acres. The price of this home with 8,007 square meters is $838,000.
