Situated strategically on the first row of one of Escazu's most sought after gated communities, this contemporary residence was built by and for its current and only owner. It combines the warmth of a residence with the design and flow to host and entertain friends and family. The subdued facade hides a breathtaking interior and design, with a smart layout placing all social areas on the first floor of the residence and the private areas on the second floor. Upon entering the residence, you are welcomed by a two story foyeur, which is overlooked from the second floor landing. A formal vestibule separates access to a home office or guest bedroom, with its own bathroom which doubles as a guest bathroom with access from the living room. As you enter the living room, the sheek decor provides an impressive backdrop to the living and sunken dining room, which both walk out to the pool and deck area, overlooking the unobstructed, panoramic views of the entire city of San Jose. The L shape of the first level wraps around to a jaw dropping open kitchen, with a large island, and an informal living/tv room, which also provides direct access to the deck and pool area. As the kitchen always becomes the heart of the home, this home owner designed a kitchen to fit that need, where family can be entertained while cooking, and a place where the pool atmosphere can be brought into the home and vice versa. The corridor behind the kitchen hides the access to the laundry and service area, including a small bedroom and full bath.
The second floor, lined with venetian stucco wall coverings, and decor lighting, is access through a staircare just off the foyeur. The second floor opens boasts an equisitely designed informal tv room for children which separates a full ensuite guest bedroom to left, from the two children's bedrooms on the right, both with closets and ensuite bathrooms. From the living room, there is a hallway with coffered ceilings and inset lighting, which provides just enough separation from the other bedrooms, to create the privacy and seclusion of a true master suite. Overlooking the pool and deck and city views from the second floor, the master suite, boasts a true getaway for its owner, fully equipped with surround sound, his and her walk in closets, jacuzzi and separate shower and toilet.
