Luxury Home Located Inside Of An Exclusive Eco-Community Bordering A Private Nature Reserve
This one of a kind ocean view home was designed by architect Franz Beer and was featured in a 16 page article in the most prestigious luxury real estate publication in Costa Rica, Estilos & Casas magazine. The estate is located inside of an exclusive 1,335 acre community with 83% of the land set aside in perpetuity as a protected rainforest reserve. The concept for the community was conceived by a Costa Rican family that has owned the land for generations. Located only 3 miles from Matapalo beach, you will take an incredible drive along a road bordering the beautiful Portalon river. Even before you reach the private 10 acre property, you will realize that you are reaching a destination that is truly special.
The community has acquired Green Flag status for preserving a healthy environment and Blue Flag recognition for watershed protection by the Costa Rican government. The project has complied with all Setena environmental laws and has been recognized as a Rene Frank International Ecological Development and Tourism Destination. The community is laced with rivers, streams, waterfalls and a lush rainforest with ancient wildlife corridors. There is also a private park highlighted by an amazing whirlpool swimming hole that has to be seen in person to truly appreciate. Other amenities include spa services, landscaping crews, a well maintained internal road system, a drainage system with a low hydrological impact, 24 hour security, controlled gated entry and professional management to attend to your property needs while you are away.
One of the first homes built in the community, the owner had the opportunity to cherry pick a premiere location. Nestled on 10 acres in the southeast corner of the project, the property has a buffer for miles to the east and south by the protected rainforest reserve. A lengthy private road leading from the home towards the community’s internal road infrastructure provides additional privacy. If you are looking for a showcase property with a fantastic blend of nature and privacy, this listing should be a serious consideration.
One Of A Kind Custom Home With High Quality Finishes
The inspiration for this four story home was conceived by an acclaimed artist with meticulous taste. Finishes include imported stone, exotic hardwoods, high quality tiles and vaulted ceilings with two story windows that flood the home with sunlight. The property is beautifully landscaped and designed to take full advantage of the surrounding environment. The first floor includes a tropical pool area with a covered outdoor lounge and a full bathroom for guests. A trip to the next floor will take you to huge wrap around balconies where you can marvel at the incredible views. From here you can access the gourmet kitchen, a media room, a guest bedroom, a full bathroom and a spacious living room with an open layout.
The third floor includes two master suites with private bathrooms and balconies. An indoor seating area separates the master suites and leads to another covered balcony with views that expand over the rainforest and out to the waves rolling into to Playa Matapalo. A staircase off this floor will take you to the fourth level – a rooftop sun deck where you will be at eye level with the lush rainforest canopy. From here you will have an incredible bird’s eye view of the tropical environment that completely surrounds you. By the way, if you don’t feel like climbing up four flights of stairs, there is an elevator that will take you to each level of the home.
If you wish to have a caretaker live on site or require extra accommodations for guests, the estate includes a separate studio with full bathroom and a private guard house. Of course the home is set up with air conditioning, wireless internet, satellite television and other modern amenities that you would naturally expect to find in a home of this quality. This unique property is perfectly tailored for a buyer seeking an overabundant blend of luxury, privacy and nature that only Costa Rica can provide.
