The modern luxury, Montaña del Sol, was designed by the mid-century German Swiss Architect J. Van Wilpe circa 1967 and completely renovated and updated by American Architect Mark A. Tarmey of 4m Design Group in 2011. This property is tailor-made for an owner that appreciates privacy and breathtaking mountainside and rainforest canopy views of Costa Rica. The casa is approximately 8,307± square feet with a small apartment separate from the family spaces and sits on approximately 8.9± acres.
The casa is located in Parque Montaña del Sol, a gated private luxury community with large individual lots and magnificent homes among blooming trees and bushes, spectacular views overlooking Costa Rica’s central valley and mountain ranges surrounded by a 20,000 acre nature reserve.
The beautifully decorated casa has four levels boasting 5+ bedrooms, 7 full baths and 2 half baths. The casa was substantially renovated in 2011 with additions including a supported partially cantilevered upper two stories, which takes advantage of commanding views to the San Jose valley in Central Costa Rica beyond below the nearly 5,000 foot elevation.
Natural lighting throughout the home provides for intimate dining and large gathering space with two connecting glass-enclosed stairwells, one of which wraps around a new elevator. In a gated community with prime security and exclusivity, the casa accommodates 2 cars in an open carport with space for two additional vehicles adjacent to the casa.
The lowest floor (below ground level) hosts the pool cabana bath and a small entertainment kitchen, suited for indoor and outdoor engagements with seating areas that offer remarkable access to the shade terrace. The pool area includes a private sun deck for private sunbathing. Additionally, the lower level provides a small apartment for the resident Housekeeper and Caretaker, both separated from the family spaces.
The casa is designed for a larger pool with sun orientations for privacy and full and partial sun exposures. The existing outdoor areas currently contains a large hot-tub in a secluded garden setting.
