Ocean View Home | Gated Community | Near the Beach | 2 Car Garage

Status : For Sale | Costa Rica MLS number: 75590

Welcome to Casa de la Luz. Located within the gated community of Costa Esterillos, you will find this rare ocean view home. Up a short hill, past the entry gates, this lovely home awaits. Not a detail has been spared in the choice of landscaping that embraces this home. The flower lined driveway welcomes you here. Cuban palm trees, lipstick palms, multiple varieties of bird of paradise, as well as hibiscus and flowering grasses lead you to the grand front door. A flagstone faced waterfall
announces your arrival.

Once inside, the massive great room with two stories of tinted windows will
beckon you to come inside. Continue to the newly remodeled kitchen with Brazilian green quartzite countertop that reflects the jungle colors outside. Glass front, garage door upper cabinets display your prettiest serving pieces. An induction cooktop, dishwasher, electric oven, microwave, refrigerator and side by side wine coolers make this a great kitchen for the chef and entertainer in you. A lovely dining area is adjacent.

The home boasts three master suites, all with ensuite bathrooms and walk-in closets. The bathrooms all have private water closets, vanities with raised glass basins, and oversized walk-in showers. Each bedroom has a sliding glass door with screens to a private patio. Two of the bedrooms are on the main floor and a larger master suite is upstairs. It has a private balcony. There is a den on the main floor, and a powder room. The laundry room is large enough to include pantry space if needed. The great room has two sets of sliding glass doors, with screens that open to the expansive pool side patio.

The patio has just been resurfaced with a cool to the touch natural composite surface. The pool is the perfect size; just big enough to enjoy a dip, but not so large that it is a nuisance to care for. Enjoy the cool splash, sound and look of the orbital water feature. The pool has a flagstone spill over edge. There is a private flagstone faced shower, just around the corner and out of sight from the pool. Don’t forget to notice the stainless and very functional outside kitchen with ocean view, featuring both a griddle and grill, there is nothing you can’t prepare.

You have ocean views from the great room, two of the bedrooms, the patio, and the pool. You will never stop enjoying the views. Every window enjoys views to the colorful gardens or to the south facing azul Pacific. In the mornings watch the parrots, macaws, and toucans fly from the ocean to the jungle. During the early morning enjoy the monkeys, pazote, and sloth that share the community. At night, the birds return to the beach. More stars than you can imagine fill the sky.

The home boasts a large 2-car garage with automatic overhead role-up door, a rarity in this country of carports. The property is roughly one-third of an acre, with 2 mangoes, 1 coconut and 1 lime tree. Fill your home with fresh flowers every day from the varieties of colorful plants. The home is sold furnished to make your move-in so easy.
