Luxury Home In “Los Altos de San Juan” With City And River Views Overlooking The San Isidro Valley
Upscale Living Close To The Most Intimate Tropical Beaches In Costa Rica
Featured in the most popular real estate magazine in Costa Rica, this unique property is of a caliber that is normally found in upscale Central Valley neighborhoods like the Escazú area near Costa Rica’s capital city of San Jose. If you own a home in the Central Valley, you will experience a cool climate and enjoy all of the conveniences that come with living near a big city. However, if you also love the idea of going to the beach on a regular basis, the nearest beach in Jaco is about 1 & 1/2 half hours away (with no traffic). Jaco can get crowded and if your idea of a great day at the beach includes walking down pristine tropical beaches, like those found around the Dominical area, a trip from the San Jose area will take approximately 3 hours by car. What if you could find a luxury home that offers a cool climate, city living and is located only 30 minutes from the tranquil beaches around Dominical? Look no further as this is the perfect place for you!
Enjoy Incredible Views While Immersing Yourself In The Perfect Climate
Located in the mountains in an area called Los Altos de San Juan the property overlooks the San Isidro Valley below and features an ideal climate at an elevation of approximately 2,300′ above sea level. Whether you are standing by the pool or relaxing in the bedrooms, you will enjoy spectacular views of rivers winding through lush farmland, beautiful mountains towering in the distance and dazzling city light views of the city of San Isidro de El General; – or Perez as the locals call it.
The view is pure Costa Rica! In fact there are many popular “Mirador” restaurants that were constructed nearby to take advantage of this incredible view. The 1.5 acre property fronts the public road that connects the Coastal Highway to the city of San Isidro, yet the home is set back deep enough via a private, palm lined, brick driveway that allows you to enjoy complete privacy. We heard no road noise while we were outside around the pool or inside the house with the doors and windows open.
Private Estate Home Constructed With High Quality Finishes And Modern Amenities
The reason why this home immediately reminded us of other properties we have visited in the Central Valley area is because it was built in 2007 by an architect from San Jose. The 2 story main house includes vaulted ceilings, a custom fountain, doors made of exotic Cedro and Guanacaste hardwood, durable bamboo floors and artistic bamboo finishes laced in the ceilings. The stairs inside the house and the outside decks are made of beautiful Almendro wood. The gourmet kitchen includes Brazilian granite slab countertops, Cedar cabinets, stainless steel appliances and a walk in pantry. Of course you will find internet, satellite television and all of the other modern amenities you would expect to find in a home of this quality.
The spacious living room is ideal for entertaining as it opens up to a covered patio leading outside to the beautiful grounds featuring a pool, a heated jacuzzi, an outdoor shower and a bar-rancho with bar, sink and a built-in grill. The flooring surrounding the pool is made of expensive cut coral. Coral does not heat up with the sun, so you can walk on it barefoot without burning your feet. Off of the living room on the Southern wing of the house is a guest bedroom with bathroom and a private office with an outdoor seating area. Upstairs is an additional 3 bedrooms with 2 and 1/2 bathrooms. Each bedroom includes a private balcony where you can enjoy the incredible views this property has to offer. The master bedroom includes his & her walk in closets and an oversized master bathroom.
The grounds are impeccably landscaped with large green lawns lined with an array of colorful tropical plants. Other property highlights include a rustic 1 bed / 1 bath caretaker’s quarters, a 1 bed / 1 bath guest house with a kitchenette, a game room, a laundry room, storage areas, a 2 car garage and a security system with video-recorded surveillance cameras. If you are interested in expanding the property, there is a large neighboring land parcel that is available and a mirador lot with incredible views. The home is selling turn key ready and fully furnished. We can see this property functioning well as a personal family home or as a Bed & Breakfast in the mountains. This is a very unique situation and there are absolutely no other homes of this size and quality in the immediate area.
