Located in Alto La Palma, Puriscal, Costa Rica this spacious custom one story concrete block home features 3 large bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms and was completed in May of 2012. The living space measures 260M2 or 2,798 square feet and was built by a North American builder and designed by Costa Rican architect Gustavo Quesada. It is perfectly positioned on a 8,678M2 or 2.2 acre flat lot to take advantage of the spectacular infinity-edge view of the lush mountains and valley looking out to Parrita and the Pacific ocean.
Altos de Antigua is a 250-acre mountain community located just outside Puriscal that will take your breath away. This secure gated community is a beautiful short 25 minute drive from Puriscal on paved highway 239 that will also take you to the beach town of Parrita. The city of Puriscal has all the shopping and service amenities you could want locally including a new state-of-the-art hospital. But if you prefer more expanded choices, a scenic 1 hour 10 minute drive will bring you to the outskirts of San Jose. Catching a flight from the international airport is 1 hour 15 minutes and in 1 hour 20 minutes you can be on the beaches of Parrita. Altos de Antigua sits at an altitude of 1,000 meters, with mild temperatures between 65 and 80 F degrees and there are always soft, cool breezes year round.
This home was designed to the highest standards of energy efficiency and living convenience you would ever want your home to be. Savings on electrical expenses are achieved by the state-of-the-art pressurized evacuated tube solar hot water system and the eco-friendly Toshiba LED lighting & dimmer system used throughout the house. Add the efficient LG Multi-Split air conditioning system and low-voltage DC motors found in the Fanimation designer ceiling fans and you will experience the comfort of knowing you're saving money every time you flip on a switch. All glass windows and doors are bronze-tinted to keep out the excessive sun while keeping the house cool.
The custom designed kitchen is spacious enough for even the most discriminating chef and features all stainless steel Frigidaire Professional appliances and full imported granite countertops and backsplash. An Electrolux 46 bottle Wine Cooler / Beverage Center. The abundant solid wood cabinetry features a large double-door pantry, an island work/storage base.
A large open-concept Great Room ties the living area to the kitchen and features an 18 ft. flat ceiling with custom wood accent beams. Imported ceramic tile is used throughout the home and the living area features maintenance-free Keramia RockWood extruded glazed porcelain wood plank tile.
The large inviting master bedroom has a 12 ft. high vaulted ceiling, a large custom built-in closet and a separate storage space above -- and always there's that wonderful view. The master bathroom features a deep oversized bath tub and also a spacious shower. Two separate sinks in the granite countertop with coordinating imported ceramic tiles accent the walls and floors. Two additional large bedrooms can accommodate your guests or can be your home office or hobby center.
The Altos de Antigua community features wide paved roads and cement culverts throughout, a large community pool & spa with changing rooms, showers, lockers and separate bathrooms. A new clubhouse will be added soon to the existing covered seating areas and a spring-fed tilapia pond with aquatic gardens invites you to sit and relax with your friends and neighbors. There is also a fire pit and gazebo for community gatherings and many scenic hiking trails for you to explore. The community association fees are 42.00 a month (500.00 annually).
