Location: Escaleras, Dominical, Costa Rica
The most popular and exclusive gated community on the southern Pacific coast is where you will find this estate of almost 8 acres with jungle, waterfalls and the large Mediterranean Villa. The current, and original owners, hiked the land and personally chose this pinnacle property because of the panoramic views, the amount of land, and the privacy it would provide.
The grand two-story foyer with domed fresco ceiling and circular staircase with iron railings and rare hardwood floors ascends to the master suite which encompasses the entire second floor.
The suite's wrap-around balcony affords the same views as the grand first floor with the added benefit of being at eye level with the monkeys passing though the adjacent conservation land and the Toucans singing in the trees. The large ensuite with intricate mosaics includes a double vanity with claw foot tub and outdoor shower. A bright and spacious walk-in closet with windows is outfitted with teak cabinets and shelving.
The main floor is warm and welcoming. A large living area with circular conversation sofa is flanked by an additional sitting area or office. The majority of the handcrafted furniture is included in the purchase so you can quickly and effortlessly move in and enjoy the home right away.
The large kitchen with imported tile decor, island and peninsula provides more counter space and storage than you will ever need. Steps away is the dining room with stunning live-edge table and walls of glass to the outdoors.
Either side of the home is flanked by large guest suites complete with teak closet cabinetry and private walk-outs to covered patios and jungle and ocean views. A large garden courtyard with covered walkway separates the home from the two car garage and large laundry and services room.
The home is outfitted with German engineered back up battery storage fed from the grid so you will not experience power outages or inconvenience.
Beyond the covered terrace is the expansive heated pool with built in seating to enjoy the sunset and dramatic coastal views that include the entire south coast and the Whale's tail of Marine National Park where the Humpback whales return every year to roll and breach in the water playful ocean below. A long lap lane with infinity edge runs the entire length of the west wing of the home.
Something you won't find elsewhere is the expanse of lawn extending out form the pool towards the ocean. Lounge away to the sound of nature and the river that runs through the property with multiple waterfalls and hiking trails through the 8 acre parcel.
Costa Verde Estates is a gated community with security. Amenities include a mountain view tennis court and fitness center, and large ocean rancho and park for the community to gather. The extensive interior roads that wind through the community are also great for hiking and viewing nature. Often in the mornings you can see white tailed deer along the road. The community has set aside 600 acres into a reserve program that will protect the old growth forest and ensure the wildlife corridor is protected for years to come.
