As more people are saying, “Why wait for retirement?” to move to Panama, more will be looking for incredible opportunities like this B&B for sale. Good thing you got here first.
This executive-style 5,000-square-foot two-story estate home is currently being operated as a popular eco-conscious B&B in Chicá: La Joya de Chicá. The 2.5 fenced hectares offer incredible views of the rain forest all the way to the Pacific Ocean. Nestled in Panama’s lush mountains, the residents and guests enjoy cooler temperatures but are still just a short drive from Panama City (50 minutes) and Coronado (30 minutes) with its beautiful beaches.
The hiking trails on the property take you up and down the hills, past a wide variety of fruit trees, herbs, and vegetable gardens (not to mention wildlife!), all carefully cultivated for the enjoyment of you and your guests. The house is served by a natural spring-fed well with 1,250 gallons of water storage (and pressurized pump system for hot water on demand).
This property was carefully designed and built to be the ideal mountain bed-and-breakfast getaway. The care and planning is evidenced in every piece of handcrafted woodwork and custom furniture. The kitchen is a chef’s dream, complete with a walk-in pantry, lots of cabinet space, and top-of-the-line appliances including separate refrigerator and freezer and (so important) a dishwasher. There’s a lot of counter space and an extra-large island in the middle of the room. Everything you need to whip up resort-worthy breakfasts is included: cutlery, dishes, tools, and small appliances.
Along with the kitchen, the ground floor also has an office and storage space, dining room, sunken living/game room (with enormous windows overlooking the property and the mountains), a guest bathroom, and two bedrooms with private bathrooms.
Upstairs you’ll find three bedrooms and a full bath. It’s perfect for a live-in working situation, because it’s also got its own kitchen, laundry room and pantry, and a living area with a large terrace. The master has a balcony. If desired, these rooms can also be rented.
Outside, you have a large slate patio, perfect for outdoor dining, with a utility kitchen, commercial-sized BBQ, and a wood-fired pizza oven. The custom-built pool is refreshing and relaxing, and nearby you have a thatched gazebo with custom bar, perfect for entertaining. Hop in the whirlpool with your favorite cocktail to enjoy a Panama sunset.
In additional to the attached carport, on the other side of the house there’s a separate garage with two industrial roll-up doors, the perfect workshop (or extra storage!) landscaping and gas power equipment, as well as some tools, are negotiable above the price of the property. Inside, there are separate rooms with en-suite bathrooms that can be used as an office or caretaker’s quarters, and a complete laundry facility.
Chicá is a little-known mountain-living dream. It’s got conveniences like mini-markets and restaurants as well as hiking trails that lead to waterfalls, horseback riding, and every year they celebrate a flower festival. Campana National Park, with even more hiking and ocean views, is close by.
This is about as far from the rat race as you can get. If you’re ready to slow down and enjoy the tropics as you welcome visitors who are doing the same, this is the ideal place for you. The team here at My Panama Real Estate adores this property, and we’re excited to meet the person who is going to call it home. Is that you? Call us.
