Elegant Hilltop Retreat in Atenas, Costa Rica
Located in a safe and exclusive community 3,100 feet (1000 m) above sea level and regarded as perfect weather year-round, you have a feeling of being away from the crowd yet minutes from downtown Atenas (4.5 miles) and Palmares (4 miles).
This modern/tropical luxury one level residence is accented with natural elements like water, exotic hardwoods and fabulous stone finishes which all blend consistently with the area’s natural beauty. The entire estate boasts incredible views of the surrounding green mountains, for an incomparable feeling of peace and privacy.
The house is situated on one of the highest homesites of the gated neighborhood, with panoramic views and refreshing breezes from the mountains flowing throughout. The modern/tropical style of the residence with its superb attention to detail, offers top quality construction with luxurious finishes, together, combining warmth and elegance, all creating a great feeling of peace and tranquility.
The floor plan was designed for an incredible flow between the kitchen, living room, dining room, side terrace and infinity pool complex. This affords a true “great room” experience where indoor and outdoor living flow together for the “alfresco” lifestyle that defines pure Costa Rican living. These rooms make up the heart of the house and develop an astonishing space for interaction. The side terrace is large and covered, for a full-time outdoor appreciation of the incredible views even on rainy days.
An independent and spacious master bedroom is separated from the guest suites, with access to a more private terrace next to the pool and jacuzzi area. The master bathroom was carefully planned with details like a double shower and double sink.
All bedrooms in the house have their nice walk-in closets with excellent wood cabinets and ensuite private bathrooms. The middle room can be used as a bedroom or as an executive office.
A beautiful infinity-edge pool, heated with solar panels has a saltwater purification system. The pool complex with elegant jacuzzi and lush landscaping creates a wonderful tropical setting. With outside BBQ and dining area this is outside living at its finest.
The property size is approximately 1.25 acres, developed into terraces for maximum use of the entire extension of the property. In the lower area is where the house is situated and where the land contains a large playground. This big terrace could be used to build a guest house or may also be used to build 2 or 3 “casitas” to generate passive income as a B&B. On the middle level, there is a small, detached guest “casita” (presently used as storage and could be another executive office with breathtaking views), which also has a small patio with incredible views, then you also have gardens and mango trees. On the upper terrace, there is an extra-large water tank that distributes fresh spring water to the entire property. There’s also a charming gazebo to meditate, relax and enjoy.
This beautiful mountain top retreat features 3 bedroom suites, 3.5 bathrooms, open living areas, covered terrace, pool, hot tub, tropical landscape, stunning views, two extra building sites, and MUCH MORE!
