While there are many luxury estates in the Escazu and Santa Ana areas, you will not find one like this. It starts with a setting that combines both lofty and what appear to be hand carved views of the mountains and city below, with the utmost convenience of being just minutes to the area's finest restaurants, cafes, shops, international schools and business district. There are many spectacular estates in the hills of Escazu, most require a long commute into the heart of the city and therefore simply do not provide the convenience that the modern day family is looking for. This luxury residence is close to it all, yet feels a world apart.
Upon entering the private compound through the guard gate, you will notice a meandering driveway that breaks in two directions. The first is to the right which is a direct access to the pool and entertainment area ideal for guests who are coming to a party or event. The second, slowly descends to the port cochere formal entrance to the residence, and ample driveway and parking area. Upon opening the door to this majestic residence, the marble lined floors and two story, elegant atrium lobby are enhanced by the dual, winding staircases that embrace the walls of this unique luxury estate. From the coffered ceiling, hangs an elegant, custom iron chandelier with soft, recessed lighting. Just beyond the lobby, you will come to a more formal, living area which is ample enough to divide into multiple settings. All, however, are blessed with the abundant natural light that enters through the classical windows, overlooking the covered patio, and onto the pool deck. To the right of the living area, you will find the dining room and chef's kitchen with large island, and offering direct access to the patio, and into the pantry, laundry and service quarters (as well as a direct entrance from the owner's garage ideal for bringing in groceries, etc).
To the left of the formal living room, you will find a professional, fully equipped home theater, as well as a tv/informal living room wherein guests can descend into the private, guest suite exclusively inhabiting the lower level of the home. Additionally, on the first floor, there is a guest bedroom, and home office, which share a jack and jill bathroom. On the second floor, the staircase takes you to a landing, and informal, open living room that overlooks the pool, terrace, gardens and views in the horizon which can be viewed from the living room, or from the terrace. To the left of the landing, there are 4 identical bedrooms, each sharing a bathroom with the neighboring bedroom and all enjoy city or mountain views and of course, like the rest of the rooms, air conditioning. On the other end of the second floor, you will come to the master suite which can also be accessed from a staircase on the lower level for extreme privacy. The master bedroom in this impeccable residence inspires not only luxury, but comfort and peace. The space is carefully designed to frame the stunning views to the forefront, providing distinct, yet stunning, panoramic views from every angle of the room. Just behind the bedroom, there is a wall creating a corridor towards the walk in closet, and the enormous master bath equipped with walk in shower, jacuzzi tub, and dual vanities. Throughout the home, and the master not being an exception, the windows can all slide open to allow not only the breeze to enter, but to allow its fortunate residents the opportunity to never miss a sunrise, sunset, or simply one of the area's most breathtaking views.
Back to the outdoors...as you walk out from the main living room, there is a covered patio with inviting furniture, and a cascading water feature which overlooks an elegant staircase that descends towards the pool and clubhouse. From the patio, it is inevitable to be drawn towards the postcard views in the distance, and the pool down below. The views encompass not only the surrounding mountains of Escazu, and those in the distance on the other side of the city, but of course, the engaging city views, which light up at night to truly illuminate the sky in the distance. The pool, designed by Ecopool, is a free form masterpiece including a swim up pool bar, and of course, a covered area to service the pool bar. To no surprise, the pool was carefully designed and "placed" with the views at its forefront. Just beyond the pool, there is a spacious clubhouse area, which was created to entertain large groups of people, which as mentioned early can drive down to the pool area directly from the entrance.
Not mentioned above, but no less importance are the gardens, on this unique parcel of land measuring just over 1 hectare, which were also carefully envisioned to accent this irreplaceable Utopian luxury residence.
