An often overused cliche, this particular residence truly is a window into the past. Situated less than 5 minutes from the heart of the quaint, country town of Ciudad Colon, and less than 15 minutes to Santa Ana and Escazu, this country estate is one of a kind. Upon entering the gate, it is inevitable for your blood pressure to drop, and your accelerated pace to slow as you take in the sights, sounds and smells of a country estate of years gone by. The property encompasses a total of 1.2 hectares, and as you meander up the ever so slight hill from the entrance to the covered port cachere, that is found in the old farm houses of decades ago, you are literally transported into another world.

The hand laid stone driveway provides start contrast to the abundant trees, ponds, and nature that surrounds this spectacular estate. Upon arrival, the use of brick, natural hardwoods, concrete and cana brava start to pain a picture of the residence that awaits. The arch at the entrance, is mirrored at the back entrance, to frame an irreplaceable sense of arrival to allow residents and guests to remember just where they are. The entry foyer is accented by a brick barreled vaulted ceiling, and natural stone polished floors. The floor plan offers a more classical layout with the country kitchen and service quarters just to the right of the home. Walking passed this area, the entrance to the private areas of the home are to the left, but we will first start with the social areas of the home. Just beyond the kitchen and to the right of this two wing home, is the formal dining area, with vaulted ceilings, and stucco accented walls. This area, and all areas of this level look out upon the covered, ranch style terrace, which overlook the pool, ranch, and stunning valley and mountain in the distance.

This outdoor area boasts a casual living space, dining area, as well as lounging area, and the entire terrace connects via windows or doors to the corresponding interior space inside the home inspired by true indoor/outdoor living. To the other side of the dining room, there is a casual living room in the home, which leads into the private areas of the home, including an office, two children's or guest bedrooms, as well as the master suite. The master suite, offers an in room, home office with windows that open to the terrace creating the ideal work from home space, or inspiration for a writer or journalist. To the exterior of the home, and beyond the terrace, you will find the pool and jacuzzi area, however, these amenities are just a small part of the charm of this exterior space. There is a fully equipped , covered kitchen, expansive living area, as well as access to a completely separate, one bedroom suite, with ensuite bathroom. This area was an add on and combines the old world charm of the primary residence with contemporary touches and modern finishes.

The true charm, however, is outside with the rare access to the green space, trees, flora, sounds of nature, and stunning views of Ciudad Colon, the mountains of Mora, etc...This is a must see for the discerning buyer.
