Location: Escaleras, Dominical, Costa Rica
Located on a beautiful perch in the much sought after area of Escaleras, the Jade House is an extraordinary example of tropical luxury. Overlooking the South Pacific Coast of Costa Rica between Dominical and Uvita, this iconic home represents the pinnacle of tropical living for the discerning buyer. Located at an elevation of 900 feet, it receives constant mountain and ocean breezes and has amazing unobstructed views of the Pacific Ocean and coastline.
The 9,100 square foot contemporary home has 5 air-conditioned bedrooms and 6 1/2 baths, and the owner has spared no expense in tastefully furnishing and outfitting the home with all the modern amenities one could want in an exquisite showcase home.
Through the steel and glass doors one enters into a foyer with 40-foot tall hardwood ceilings… From the foyer, one enters into the great room which lays out in an open floor plan that tastefully includes the living, dining, and kitchen areas which includes top end appliances such as a Viking and industrial-sized double fridge and freezer; all of these elements are spread out over classic stone floors. Your backdrop view from all areas is the Pacific Ocean over the three level infinity pool, which surrounds the outdoor living area and includes a covered children’s pool and a swim up bar to create an oasis of family living and great entertaining. Entertaining around these idyllic pools with an infinite ocean view backdrop is an easy and enjoyable task with a well equipped outdoor kitchen, with a top-of-the-line Lynx grill and a large paella stove for feeding as many guests as you please.
The glass walls which frame the Pacific Ocean on the main floor master suite fold back to a private patio and pool to allow for full immersion and enjoyment of the perfect year-round climate. All bedroom suites have private bathrooms, double shower heads, sun deck access, and stellar ocean views. A separate office can also double as a 5th bedroom.
Creatively hidden behind the bookshelf outside the office reveals a hidden staircase and access to the 900 square foot children’s bedroom with its own bathroom, and 6 custom bunk beds which is perfect for visiting families. Engineered to perfection, the home has a state of the art intelligent lighting system, a top of the line security monitoring/camera system, and a multi-room wireless Sonos entertainment system with state of the art large flat screen TVs.
The owner has also outfitted the home to be as sustainable as possible, employing a backup rain capture system, a Purasol solar water heating system, a very impressive 96-panel, 24 Kilowatt grid-tied photovoltaic solar power system which offsets the majority of electricity use for the stately home (added bonus is a 8 Kw battery reserve system which serves as a great backup power source for when the grid power goes out, ensuring seamless comfort and convenience 24/7).
There is also an additional 900 sq/ft guest house with 1 bedroom and a loft fully furnished with washer & dryer, and state of the art kitchen appliances, which serves perfectly as a care takers house. Below the guest house is an ample deep and tall three-car garage which has been perfectly and neatly outfitted by the current owner to store all types of toys to explore the surrounding adventure Mecca of Costa Ballena.
This is an amazing and well-priced opportunity for an astute and discerning buyer to own a one-of-a-kind iconic tropical estate.
