When the elevator doors open, you have the feeling of arriving at one of the most outstanding apartments on the market: spaciousness, luxury, direct view of the golf course, double height and impeccable condition are just some of the attributes that can be enjoyed at first sight. This incredible property is the unique result of the union of two floors of the building designed with the best selection of natural finishes where the ideal atmosphere of good taste is the result. Its location is unbeatable since the height of the third and fourth floors of the building where it is located, allows you to enjoy an outside view where the mature trees and the golf grass of the Costa Rica Country Club become a privileged natural setting.
The materials used throughout the property stand out as elements that contrast and balance the colorfulness of the environment. All general floors are cream marble and highlight the exquisite work of the cedar wood panels that cover many of the apartment's key walls, creating a sophisticated and sober atmosphere. A wide hall where the ceiling was designed to appreciate the total height of both floors, leads us to two living rooms with huge windows surrounded by vegetation, giving it the green so appreciated by the visual enjoyment. The main dining room is connected to the kitchen area through a door so the support service is really functional in any meeting that is organized.
On the way to the most private area of the apartment, passing through two wooden and glass grid doors, you will find the impeccable library covered entirely with beautiful wooden panels, recreating the purest atmosphere of an English style house. This space provokes to be accompanied of that special book with a good wine, cognac or whiskey... where the punctual light for the reading, finishes giving the ideal sensation of quietness and isolation to enjoy a good reading. A wine cellar could not be missing in this room so one was designed at the foot of the spectacular wooden stairs, with the proper spaces, humidity and temperature regulator for the conservation of wines.
A large TV room is adjacent to the library, extending the enjoyment of activities and a window through which you can see an impressive tree. As it has a full bathroom, it can serve as a guest room as well. For lovers of having a pet with all the comforts, on the balcony of this TV room was installed an area with natural grass so they can go directly through a "mini door" adapted. Also, on this same level, is another bedroom with walk in closet and the bathroom with tub, shower and two sinks that can perfectly work as a master bedroom. An intelligent sound system is available that can be operated from any electronic device with built-in speakers on both levels of the apartment.
The second level can be accessed by stairs or the elevator can take you to this floor, so it is an apartment for people who do not have to climb steps, if it is a requirement. On this floor there are a total of four bedrooms, all of them with their own bathroom and walk-in closet. A wonderful office has the unmatched view to the golf course where natural light invades the room. It has the advantage of having its own bathroom and walk in closet to function as an additional bedroom if necessary. All the bathrooms are covered in marble and the floor in the bedrooms is made of wood, which provides the desired warmth within each room. The master bedroom has two full bathrooms, maximizing the comfort of a "his and hers" in layout. Three walk in closets in total within this master suite as well as a desk space resulting in a very intimate office. In the window of the master bedroom, two panes of glass have been installed to ensure that noise is completely isolated. All the walk in closets have wooden shelves and divisions, thus maintaining the privilege of using only natural materials in all details.
From the closest angle to the view of the golf course, a beautiful TV room with a retractable screen and a projector that hides in the ceiling, is the perfect home theater at the touch of a button. The entire apartment is centrally air-conditioned in case the climate needs to be adjusted according to the owner's standards. The corridors have been very well used with decorative wooden doors that are also storage closets. At the end of the bedroom area, you will find a closet that is a great complement to store glassware or bedding. In addition, in the service areas on each floor, there are four water tanks properly hidden from view, condensing machines with easy access for maintenance and more internal storage space.
The kitchen is all furnished with cedar wood cabinets and dark granite countertops. It has a central island design with benches for informal meals. The built-in appliances are from top brands such as Viking, Sub-Zero and Frigidaire. A huge support surface or "pantry" for daily use in the organization of important or family events, is located along the kitchen space. The large window provides a comforting view of the city and the mountains along with the desired ventilation during food preparation. A dining area with TV for the domestic staff exists as a prelude to the service room and its separate bathroom for the use of additional support staff for the family. Checkout boxes and breakers have their own neat and clear space for easy use and maintenance.
