The proximity to the city's finest schools, restaurants, shops and entertainment, combined with an envious climate, dramatic mountains in the backdrop, make Escazu and Santa Ana a premiere choice. Although in the past, most luxury homes in the area were traditional in their style, architectural tendencies and influences have continued to innovate designs, creating a unique combination of both the traditional, Spanish influence as well as some dramatic, contemporary homes.
The area offers spectacular communites both on the hillside boasting panoramic views such as Cerro Alto, Cerro Real, Villa Real, and Montana del Sol as well as homes in the valley of Santa Ana in premiere gated communities such as La Hacienda, Hacienda del Sol, Bosques del Lindora, Hacienda Lindora and the golf course community of Valle del Sol. These communities offer clients added security, as well as the convenience and added value of common area amenities such as pool, clubhouse, and some include even tennis courts.
