Location: Dominical, Costa Rica
Located in the heart of Escaleras in the gated community of Marina Vista, this exceptional Spanish estate sits hillside on a large 1.4 acre lot, with spacious indoor-outdoor living. The custom wrought iron gated entry leads you into the beautiful courtyard where you are greeted with Spanish tile fountain and vine covered walls with the tropical jungle backdrop.
The home is primarily single level living, with an additional large guest suite with private garden below. Enter the villa through the hand-crafted cedro doors into the large foyer with vaulted ceilings and walls of windows that showcase the expansive entertaining and living areas, all with optimum views of the dramatic ocean coastline and the bay of Dominicalito.
The large kitchen with premium granite counters, custom milled cabinetry, large island, and new appliances also houses a large pantry and easy access to the outdoor grilling area. A wall of screens that open to the outdoor living and dining transform the different spaces into one. It's the perfect convenience one wants for a second or third home.
The large living and dining area with solid beam structure , authentic Spanish tile floors, and wrought iron furniture includes electric blinds that can be lowered to filter the sun or raised for ultimate enjoyment of the breezes and views to the ocean and coastline below.
The covered walkways surrounding the oceanside of the home provide access to the various rooms including the huge master suite with two walls of windows so you can hear, and see the waves to the west and enjoy the sights and sounds of the rainforest outside the north windows with the sounds of the cascades of the river below. The large ensuite bathroom features separate areas, double vanity sink, a shower and separate bathtub adjacent to the large picture window into the jungle, a private WC and large walk-in closet.
Further down the tiled hall is a separate laundry room, and large family room with beautifully milled Spanish cedar coffered ceilings and expansive windows.
The first guest suite is next. Very private, and can be accessed down the hall or from a separate entrance off the beautiful courtyard with fountain.
Parts of the property are entirely fenced in for the four-legged family members and include a garden path that winds through the grounds of tropical perennials.
Accessed from the lower entrance or down the tiled staircase, is an additional guest bedroom suite with two queen beds and full bathroom. A large covered patio with ocean and garden view allows your guests complete privacy. A great spot for extended family, or group of kids to retreat to.
Additional features include the three car covered parking area with the same attention to detail. Tile floors and handsome wood beamed ceilings. There is no shortage of storage either. Two large areas, one off the parking area will give you easy access to the toys and surf boards for a fun day at the beach, and an additional large workshop/supply closet under the home to house your garden supplies and more.
The sun terrace and infinity pool enjoy the same expansive ocean and coastal views as much of the home enjoys. A large entertaining area with dry bar with dining lounge space rounds out space well for gatherings with friends.
