Stunning Tuscan Sanctuary with 270° panoramic views set in lush tropical gardens. Mega impressive infinity pool and expansive covered patio for awesome outdoor living.
This spectacular Tuscan oasis in an exclusive, gated community is nestled in the hills overlooking Atenas and the entire Central Valley. Enjoy complete privacy and a casually elegant lifestyle in this impressive estate, complete with Casita, Bodegas and Meditation Gazebo. With 270° vistas, you can experience the sunrise and the sunset, all in the same day, from the pool or the patio.
The ornate wrought iron gates open onto a tropical paradise, revealing an abundance of indigenous, flowering plants and a six-meter-high, cascading waterfall. The magnificent architecture of this two-story home is unique for the area, with arched windows and doorways offering an old-world charm in a contemporary home, complete with hi-end finishes and hi-efficiency ceiling fans throughout.
The magnificent, curved infinity edge pool is as functional as it is beautiful, complete with therapeutic salt water and the soothing effects of the sound of flowing water. With RGB LED lighting, dual firepit/fountains and four waterspouts, the drama and excitement of pool parties is unlimited.
Both the pool and the spa are heated year-round with an eco-friendly solar heating system. And for the serious swimmer, the pool is long enough and deep enough to get a daily workout. With a shallow end for sunning and a built-in bench in the deep end, there’s something for everyone in this pool!
The hot tub/spa is for those occasions when you want an aqua massage, or you just want to enjoy the sunsets at dusk and stargazing at night.
The lush indigenous gardens throughout the property can be enjoyed on multiple terraces and trails that lead to a meditation gazebo, where you can sit and enjoy all the natural wonders of the property.
Visitors often comment that this property offers the best views in Atenas. The 270° panorama from this patio is beyond compare. Whether it’s admiring the flight paths of the birds soaring over the valley by day, or the city lights twinkling by night, this view is without question spectacular. Admire two of the country’s volcanoes far off in the distance, or focus on the many hectares of coffee plantations sprawling below. With over 5,000 square meters of land, much of which is planted in coffee, you can harvest your own beans and brew the best cup of coffee in town while relaxing on your patio.
