As the area of Curridabat continues to thrive with bustling new commercial developments, upscale international restaurants, and entertainment, the desire to live and raise a family in this area is on the rise. While there are a number of excellent residential communities in this area, without a doubt, Monteran stands out as the most exclusive, sought after community. Upon entering the gates, there is an unparalleled sense of arrival that is arguably the most impressive of all communities in the Central Valley. Past the gates and state of the art security, you will find impeccable design and infrastructure, an abundance of common area amenities including the pool, clubhouse, tennis courts, gym, walking trails, playground and a 9 hole executive golf course. However, one of the stand out features of Monteran when compared to most other luxury gated communities, is the fact that all of the homes sit on lots measuring a minimum of 2000 meters, thus creating the perfect combination of community, while respecting and boasting unparalleled privacy .
While all of the homes within Monteran are desired by most, this particular luxury estate is the envy of them all. Situated towards the end of a cul de sac towards the rear of the development, the owners purchased the lot and designed each aspect of this residence to create the perfect space to entertain both family and friends. As you pull up to the driveway, the start contrast between the light tones of the stucco and stone, and the lush, meticulous gardens immediately grab your attention. There is a horseshoe driveway, with an elegant port cochere at the entrance to the home, leading you to the imposing, custom double paned wooden door at the entrance to the home. The door opens to an elegant two story lobby with an accent chandelier setting the tone for this luxurious space, The first floor of the home hosts the social areas including multiple living rooms, a full bar, elegant dining room, all overlooking the carefully manicured gardens and backyard of this estate residence. The details are spectacular with polished marble floors, custom hardwood ceiling details in the dining room (which can be left open for casual dining, or enclosed for more formal, service dining), as well surround sound and intelligent lighting throughout the home. The first floor is also host to the chef's kitchen, equipped with state of the art appliances (Wolf) , imported Spanish cabinetry from Santos, and abundant natural lighting. There is also space for a home office or additional tv room on the first floor, as well as the separate service quarters.... The focal point for entertainment is the outdoors, which is accessible from the living areas of the home and highlighted with floor to ceiling, custom windows and sliding doors leading. The impressive yard and garden are seen from every corner of the social areas of the home, and the owners also designed an outdoor, enclosed entertainment area, just off the inset, stone accented jacuzzi as the perfect spot for a birthday party, or family get together.
The second floor is the family's escape from social activities into a more casual and private setting, starting with the family/tv room. This space, as well as the rest of the second floor, has access to the wrap around terrace, overlooking the mountains, trees and backyard of the home. There is also an expansive sitting area on the second floor terrace, equipped with a fire pit, ideal for a sunset cocktail with friends or family. The second floor is lined with custom hardwood flooring, and plays host to 4 bedrooms, each with ensuite bathroom and walk in closet. The master suite, as would be expected, is the peak of luxury with an expansive space, including a sitting area, abundant natural light and direct access to the terrace, and of course, a stunning dual vanity master bathroom and walk in closet.
This is one of the finest estate homes in Monteran, and is a must see for those with a refined taste for luxury.
