This Villa gets its name from the fact that it is the second-highest private home in Atenas, facing mostly East, and getting an impressive sunrise spectacle every morning, be it the rainy season or the dry season. The sun seems to come from below, in the rain season the sun´s light starts lighting up the clouds (seen from above) that are over Limón, and then light up the Turrialba Volcano, and then spill out over the Central Valley. A truly impressive experience.
The house also has a deck jutting out over the hillside, perfect for taking in the sunset on the West side of the house, where you can watch the sun light up the Gulf of Nicoya and then disappear beyond the horizon.
The property includes a three storey home with three bedrooms, four baths, and two half-baths. The top floor is a large open floorplan space with a half bath, ideal for family/game room or home theatre, or otherwise as an office. All bedrooms have an ensuite bath and walk-in closet, and the master bathroom includes a jacuzzi. There is a sound-system integrating all three floors of the house. Social areas on the ground level include covered terraces, a fantastic deck, infinity pool, kitchen, living and dining.
There is a “casita” for guests, or a rental income opportunity, of almost 60m2.
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.
