The modern luxury, Montaña del Sol, was designed by the mid-century German Swiss Architect J. Van Wilpe circa 1967 and completely renovated and updated by American Architect Mark A. Tarmey of 4m Design Group in 2011. This property is tailor-made for an owner that appreciates privacy and breathtaking mountainside and rainforest canopy views of Costa Rica. The home is approximately 8,307± square feet with a small apartment separate from the family spaces and sits on approximately 8.9± acres. The home is located in Parque Montaña del Sol, a gated private luxury community with large individual lots and magnificent homes among blooming trees and bushes, spectacular views overlooking Costa Rica’s central valley and mountain ranges surrounded by a 20,000 acre nature reserve.

The beautifully decorated home has four levels boasting 5+ bedrooms, 7 full baths and 2 half baths. The home was substantially renovated in 2011 with additions including a supported partially cantilevered upper two stories, which takes advantage of commanding views to the San Jose valley in Central Costa Rica beyond below the nearly 5,000 foot elevation. Natural lighting throughout the home in Montana del Sol provides for intimate dining and large gathering space with two connecting glass-enclosed stairwells, one of which wraps around a new elevator. In a gated community with prime security and exclusivity, the home accommodates 2 cars in an open carport with space for two additional vehicles adjacent to the home.

The home is designed for a larger pool with sun orientations for privacy and full and partial sun exposures. The existing outdoor areas currently contains a large hot-tub in a secluded garden setting. Home Montaña del Sol is an exclusive luxury and won’t be on the market for long.

The main floor (ground level) features gleaming hardwood floors, a great living room and master bedroom with en suite master bath and two additional bedrooms, each with luxurious private baths.

Taking either the glass stairwell or elevator to the two upper levels, an inviting large gourmet kitchen with high-end appliances becomes the sanctuary for any chef. Each upper level boasts extravagant master bedrooms with an en suite master bath. The second level (from ground level) also includes a second living room and game room, and the large gathering dining space overlooks the mountainside as it falls away from the rear of the home.

The lowest floor (below ground level) hosts the pool cabana bath and a small entertainment kitchen, suited for indoor and outdoor engagements with seating areas that offer remarkable access to the shade terrace. The pool area includes a private sun deck for private sunbathing. Additionally, the lower level provides a small apartment for the resident Housekeeper and Caretaker, both separated from the family spaces.
