Sometimes it is nice to get away. However, it is even better when you can get away every day. Located less than 10 minutes to the heart of Santa Ana and Escazu, this contemporary residence provides its residents with the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. While just a stone' throw away from the area's finest restaurants, shops, international schools and culture, when you arrive at this home, you feel a world away. Situated in the lower hills of Brasil de Mora in the western suburbs just outside of Santa Ana, this home exudes a calming atmosphere inspired by contemporary architecture and the unobstructed views of the surrounding mountains and valleys. The home can be accessed either from the lower section, where owners and guests can park, walk up the staircase (passing the separate service quarters) and onto the expansive terrace and pooldeck. It is impossible not to turn around and be drawn in by the views that truly engulf the home and provide an inspiring backdrop. The terrace is the ideal space for entertaining friends and family at sunset, and opening up the indoors to the Costa Rican outdoors.
Upon entering the residence, floor to ceiling glass windows highlight the views, and bring in abundant natural light to the open floor plan, where the spacious living room, dining room and kitchen merge into one social area. The architect provided the residents with a creative dual access, in which the backside of the home can also be used as a secondary entrance for guests, and they are also welcomed as they come down the stairs from above the home, into a lush garden, and into the living area. The dual access and abundant glass, combined with the free flowing floor plan, creates an impressive open feeling to the home. Just off the living room is a full bedroom, with walk in closet and bathroom, as well as a walk out terrace overlooking the valley below. To the other side of the living room and kitchen, there is a second, spacious full bedroom with bathroom.
As you pass this bedroom in the hallway, the floor plan splits with the lower level hosting a more casual living room, whose glass doors open out upon the pool and terrace area. This area, can also double as a guest suite as it is equipped with a full bathroom as well. On the upper level, you will find the master suite with a walk in closet, walk in shower, and a walk out terrace, overlooking the pool and deck, and of course, boasting panoramic views of the entire valley.
The home is an inspiring getaway, priced to sell for just $699,000.
