Location: Dominical, Costa Rica
Like the head of a diamond in a box of jewels, this elegant villa stands out as one of the premier estates in the entire Southern Zone of Costa Rica.
With a little over 8 acres of property, Masterful Tropical Elegance is a modern villa that crowns a flat section of ridge that reaches out towards the Pacific coast. The property is located at the very end of a side road and is surrounded by hundreds of acres of green zone, which protects the property's long term value, privacy and view integrity to the fullest degree.
The house itself is masterfully designed to reflect the site's true potential, while built to the highest standards of quality. The main residence is accessed via a private drive that leads past the guest suite through a portico to the grand entry to the main level.
On the main level is a great room that includes a chef's kitchen, two islands (cook island and breakfast island), pantry, laundry and a service area on the south side. On the north side, a game area (custom billiards table) and media area offer plenty of entertainment potential. This area is connected to a generous outdoor living space with a firepit and seating area on the right, and a covered outdoor dining area with bbq on the left side. Right next to this section is an adjacent jacuzzi tub that ties into an infinity edge swimming pool, all of which are one level and all of which overlook the most dramatic Pacific views that Costa Rica has to offer. The surrounding landscapes offer uninterrupted views down the coast from the Osa Peninsula, with the iconic Whale's Tail, long stretches of coast, headlands, rocky outcroppings and year-round sunsets.
Back to the main house, a bold glass, steel and wood staircase invites you to the top level where you’re greeted by two corner bedroom suites, one of which is a luxurious master suite. Across the entire front section of the upper level is another large terrace with generous outdoor spaces and even more elevated, stunning views.
The main section of the estate has top of the line details with imported and custom made finishes: Wolf and Sub Zero appliances, fine quartz countertops, custom teak cabinetry, imported plumbing fixtures from Kohler and Roehl, Bali imported stone tubs, sinks and pool tiles, aluminum handrails from Greece, and many other discerning touches. All of these finishes and fixtures blend brilliantly into one functional piece of habitable art.
Apart from the main residence, there’s a semi-attached guest suite with its own covered parking area, fully equipped kitchen, en-suite bedroom and covered terrace with Whale's Tail view. These two areas together constitute a total of three bedroom suites, four full baths, two kitchens, and covered parking for approximately five vehicles. The quality and finishes of the guest suite are on par with the main residence and add tremendous value overall. The property also has an electronic security gate, a ten zone sprinkler system, a UV water filtration system, a solar farm with backup batteries, a man cave which could be a workout area, landscape lighting imported from the US and many, many other high-end touches.
Materful Tropical Elegance is truly missing nothing, and is being sold furnished and turnkey! The neighborhood, Costa Verde Estates, sits on the crest of the area's most sought-after mountain side in Escaleras, within a 1200 acre, gated community which is home to approximately 50 other million dollar plus homes. One really couldn't ask for a more ideal set up. Serious inquiries only.
