Casa Van Wilpe is ‘one of a kind’ property and a part Nosara’s history. It was one of the first houses built in the area in the early 1970’s by its current owners Julia and Derk. They tell stories about the timeless beauty and challenges of the Nosara of the 70´s, 80’s & 90’s and how this little piece of paradise captivated them enough to build a home in “such a remote area” for that time. Julia and Derk Van Wilpe are award winning tropical architect and engineer respectively. When they began the project all the planning was performed under the premises and values that always characterized their work such as respect for nature, the environment and social and cultural context of the area. Another distinctive aspect of the project was the use of the innovative knowledge of climate design and local/durable materials like concrete, stone and wood. Casa Van Wilpe is “a unique piece of tropical architecture”.
This house is in the hearth of G section of Playa Guiones and not only just steps to the most pristine and consistent surf of Costa Rica but within a 5 minute walk to at least 10 restaurants, many shops and a convenience store, giving this property a great potential for a private home or a commercial property/business. The lot also has a double road access (front and back) and plenty of space for additional construction and parking.
