Single Family Homes
This is an architectural luxury home in Ciudad Colon, at minutes distance from Escazu and Santa Ana, offered totally furnished and equipped. It is a hacienda-type property with extensive green areas and well-established gardens of many years, with huge, leafy trees and buildings with details of rustic flavor with high ceilings with old tile exterior coverage. The design enjoys cross ventilation in all rooms.
The property has approximately 1,200 m2 of construction. The main house has an approximate area of 750 m2 under roof as well as a large ranch, a guest cabin and a house for a guardian or gardener who lives within the property.
In addition to the main building, La Estancia has an area next to the pool and an outdoor SPA with a ranch, an additional kitchen and a guest house of approximately 350 additional m2 plus an outdoor deck of about 60 m2. The pool area has a floor area of approximately 175 m2 of ceramic floor and the SPA has a gas heater.
Independently, there is a house for a family that can take care of the property itself (guard, gardener, service personnel).
It is a wonderful, fresh residence, surrounded by green areas, with a beautiful view of the mountains of El Rodeo Reserve Zone and, at the same time, comfortable and with multiple environments, for a family that likes to live in contact with nature and at the same time very close to Ciudad Colón with all the necessary facilities: shops, supermarkets, churches, restaurants, schools, banks, etc.
Built by Constructora PIASA and designed by Arch. Ronald Zurcher, award-winning and renowned Costa Rican architect who designed La Estancia to live in a serene, private, cozy, intimate way in a country environment but at the same time with all the comforts and that allows to be conditioned on special occasions to become a great party venue for over 100 guests in formal and informal social areas while enjoying spacious and beautiful outdoors.
The entire house was designed to take full advantage of natural light and to allow perfect fresh air circulation without the need for air conditioners.
The entire property is surrounded by a perimeter wall in the front and security mesh in the rest of the perimeter, covered by beautiful plants, grass and lush and huge trees (some hundred years old). It has a closed circuit of cameras and alarms around the buildings for 24-hour monitoring. It also has a system for recording images and the cameras can be accessed remotely over the Internet.
A large forged steel gate of spectacular beauty gives access to the property through a majestic entrance through the gardens to the main house.
The architecture of the country-style house comes with details of old wood with a rustic flavor, typical of the haciendas in Mexico, Colombia or Argentina, that express at the same time a feeling of great space and freedom that offers a family and private atmosphere.
It also has an intelligent system for the remote control of the lighting of both the roofed areas (main house, ranch, guest house) and the outdoor areas (gardens, trees, swimming pool, etc.) and for the control also of the sound equipment.
There’s an expression in Costa Rica--pura vida--which translates to pure life. It is a catch-all phrase that reflects a kind of eternal optimism and laid-back way of life.
