    Joya de la Montaña, San Rafael de Heredia

    This exquisite, ultra-luxurious property is an architectural masterpiece in nature's best setting. This 3,500-square-meter (37,674-square-foot) residence sits on a 25,500-square-meter (6.3-acre) lot located in San Rafael de Heredia.

    In the distance, three marble domes on the roof stand out, and from the entrance there are imposing steps of white marble inlaid with bluish marble. The impressive entrance doors lead to a large hall with high ceilings. Features include spectacular social spaces, stained glass (designed by Sylvia Laks that also decorate the panoramic elevator), the marble floors, the access steps to the second level (designed in a single piece covered in pearl blue marble), and the lamps– mostly glass classic and neoclassical, among which Tiffany, Onix and blown glass lamps from Murano stand out.

    Highlighting its exquisite décor, collectible furnishings, artwork, sculptures, lamps, and top-of-the-line Viking Professional appliances come with the residence. It has an intensive use of marble, not only in floors and bathrooms, but also in the beautiful fireplaces in the living room and in the master bedroom. There is an impeccable use of fine woods, masterfully carved by artisans, among which you’ll find black laurel tables, nispero gum, barcino laurel, acha wood, ojoche wood ceilings, among others, Cristobal wood. The European PVC windows, iron works, the Colombian roof tile and quarry stones are other of its many details.

    Rooms are oriented to maximize spectacular views of the property's celebrated gardens and grounds. This palatial home offers spectacular mountain views and even has the marked space to build your own private helipad.
