Monte Plata is without a doubt one of Escazu’s finest residential communities, with both an incomparable location combining stunning city and mountain views, with the convenience of being just steps to the area’s finest restaurants, shops, international schools, and more. The residences exude exclusivity and privacy, with key only, direct elevator access to each residence, stunning common areas including a resort style swimming pool, deck, bbq, and rancho area for entertainment, playground, basketball, and tennis courts, walking trails, and ample underground parking. While Monte Plata itself is impressive, this particular residence is beyond compare. Purchased by its current owners, this residence underwent a complete design and finishes overhaul, making this a truly one of a kind masterpiece. From floor to ceiling, room to room, the attention to detail is evident, and the result is one of the most spectacular residences that Escazu has to offer. Upon exiting the elevator, you will enter in what feels like a completely different world. A combination of subtle design features from inset lighting, elegant wallpaper, and the perfect selection of tones and palettes create a calming sense of arrival to this residence. Of course, as you pass through the hallway, your attention is drawn to the panoramic views of the city, valley, and mountains that lie below.

The open floor plan in the social areas, including a formal and informal living room, stone accented fireplace, formal dining room, bar, and wine refrigerator (not included in the sale), all accented with stone floors, coffered ceilings, as well as impressive and well thought out lighting patterns. Behind the social areas is a chef’s kitchen, with an expansive island, state of the art appliances, abundant storage in the imported European kitchen cabinetry. The kitchen boasts abundant natural light and views of the mountains behind the development, as well as thoughtful accent lighting throughout. Behind the kitchen is the service quarters, with additional built-ins and space unlike any other residence in the building. As you enter the private area of the home, you will find a visitor’s half bath with dark toned wallpaper and onyx countertop with inset lighting to accent the space. First class accessories in this, and all bathrooms in the home, including Kohler and others. As you walk down the hallway, the owners innovatively created a shared vestibule before entering any of the 4 bedrooms of the residence.

To the southside, there are three children/guest bedrooms, one with its own private bath and one with a shared bath. Each and every bedroom boasts views of the surrounding mountains and abundant natural light. No expenses or details were spared in either the bedrooms, lighting, or design, and of course, even the bathrooms and showers boast indirect lighting, sign that even the smallest detail was not spared. Upon entering the master bedroom, you will enter a true sanctuary, with a large walk-in closet with impeccable details both in its design, overall space, and the quality of the finish of the cabinetry. The closet boasts unique features such as built in hangers, shoe racks, pocket door/mirror, and more. Someone in the family is bound to be impressed...The spacious bedroom overlooks the valley and city below and offers impressive views day and night. Likewise, there is indirect lighting, as well as a projector screen perfect for cuddling to watch a movie or sporting event. As one would expect, the master bath offers nothing less than perfection, with a carefully selected marble floor, dual vanities, centered jacuzzi tub overlooking the views, a sitting area, and separate water closet. This residence has never been on the market, and anyone who has the opportunity to step foot inside will look no further.
