This beautiful country home located above the delightful town of San Rafael, Heredia, Costa Rica…a chalet that might very well be seen in St. Moritz or Zermatt. Only 30 minutes from the excitement of the City of San Jose and the airport, but far enough away to live the country life. Situated in the mountains on almost two acres in a small gated community, this home offers incredible views of the Central Valley.
And temperatures are spring like year round; no heat or air conditioning needed! This magnificent mountain home is built with traditional local woods and stone.
The Chalet’s main level offers a spacious great room with large windows facing south, a log stone fireplace and custom made chandelier; an open kitchen with tile and granite, all wood cabinets, dishwasher; and dining room with the same spellbinding views. On this same floor there are two bedrooms and one bathroom; plus a huge tiled deck with 180 degree valley and mountain views. From the enormous deck you can enter a separate office with built in furniture, windows circling round and the same incredible panorama; this is ideal for a home office.
Most specially there is a separate room with an eight person all-tile Jacuzzi where you can settle back, enjoy a glass of wine and inhale the whole valley. Inside above the great room is the master suite with its own loft;. The huge bath adjoining features hand made wrought ironwork and fine cedar cabinetry.
The bedroom with his and her closets and built-in hand crafted furniture affords the owners the opportunity to go to sleep every night overlooking the sparkling valley lights. The ground floor comprises a large guest room with bathroom, sliding glass doors, access to a huge terrace and the same astounding views. Off the terrace there is an exercise room and a storage room. There is also a large tiled laundry room with lots of workspace, a big pantry, tiled two car garage, storage areas, and a workshop or maid’s room.
The newly built guesthouse is entirely made of cypress wood, inside and out, tile floor and bamboo ceiling. It has a living-bedroom, kitchenette, dining area, full bath, big windows and a terrace overlooking the beautifully landscaped grounds with great views of the mountains and valley below.
