This beautiful home is in an exclusive community with hiking trails, tennis courts, pool and rancho for parties. The owners of this home have really spent a lot of time and energy on the well-manicured and beautiful gardens found in and around the home. The mature gardens offer an oasis of nature which makes this home stand out from all others in this community. When you walk through the main door you immediately enter something unique. You feel as if you are in a luxury home that could be sitting in the jungles of Costa Rica but instead your conveniently located close to shopping, airport, and entertainment. There is no detail left unturned in this home. The home was designed to include the outdoors as part of the living experience. The high-end accordion doors open the home up to the incredible views and outdoor areas. The pool is part of the center courtyard and is Bali inspired with its infinity edge that suspends over the manicured gardens, forest, and creek that boarders the land. Privacy is the focus point of this yard which adds to an additional plus while entertaining or just relaxing. From any standpoint in the home or yard you are surrounded by nature and views. Every single room has unobstructed views. The property boarders a natural reserve and insures no neighbors to the east or south of the home. This has also been landscaped by the owners.
When entering the home your welcomed in by an interior garden with unique details. The grand front door opens, and you feel as if you have entered something special. The home has a concept of incorporating the outdoors in throughout the main living level by being able to slide open the glass doors on all angels. Here you find the sunken formal living area and informal living space as well. The view of the forest and the sound of the creek below also add to the uniqueness of this home. The kitchen is what we would call a “chef’s kitchen” with high end appliances and gas range. The formal dining room is found off the kitchen and bar. The kitchen and dining room also open to an exterior dining area which can host a table large enough for 12 guests. On the main floor you also find the office which has beautiful views out to the creek and forest just next to the half bath. There is direct access from the garage to the kitchen. The caretaker’s quarters, which include a bedroom and full bathroom are found off the garage with its own independent entrance.
The second floor hosts the two bedrooms and an informal living room. The master bedroom faces the forest and creek and has a private patio just off the foot of the bed. This patio is just perfect for reading our relaxing in the canopy of the forest. The open master bathroom has a glass enclosed shower with views to the forest and two large rain shower heads. Once again Bali inspired with a twist. There is plumbing in place for those who would wish to add a freestanding bathtub to the space. The master also consists of 2 closets.
There is an additional informal living/tv room on the second floor as well. The living area is a quaint space to relax or watch some tv. This living area could also easily be converted into another bedroom. It is used now as an informal living space off the 2 bedrooms. The second bedroom also has beautiful views to the west and consists of its own private bathroom. From this room you have a small patio off the bedroom to enjoy sunsets, mountain views and views of the town of Ciudad Colon.
IMPORTANT DETAIL: The home also has an area that is ready to be finished as a guest suite just off the pool area. This would add one more bedroom and full bath to the home if desired. The plumbing and electricity are already in place. The owners also have the same tile and finishings to finish it so that it has the same flow and design as the main home.
