ABOUT : Stained Glass Garden Home
This wonderful property is located within the private residential complex Arcadia in Santo Domingo de Heredia. With 730 m2 of construction and 8,100 m2 of land, this residence has contributed enormously to National Heritage with its endless number of pieces.
In turn, this property is a valuable jewel for its scenic gardens, a hand-made lake with floating plants, and a wooden bridge crossing between large trees. A complete and natural haven that can be admired from every room in the house.
Nature is also present at the entrance of the house with internal gardens and old cobblestones from the city of San José. A colorful stained glass window by Fernando Chamer shines on the ceiling.
At the first steps of a magnificent stone stairway, a wooden door opens to warmly receive one into a spacious bedroom with a complete luxurious bathroom covered in blue colored expensive tiles and a walking closet. Walking forward over elegant almendro floors one is received by a welcoming and exquisite formal room with wide windows and high ceilings that allow light and natural ventilation. Such area is integrated with a custom made bar with a marble countertop and a closed wine cellar to delight the finest wines. Following a chandelier brightens above the formal dining area with garden views.
The large kitchen has a central island and an informal dinning setting laying beneath wooden beams that opens onto the terrace surrounded by the amazing gardens.
Besides abundant storage rooms, there is an extensive laundry room, 2 bedrooms, a tv room and a dining area for household workers. Following there is an indoor 3 car garage, within additional parking stalls available.
A unique aspect of this house is its amazing library capable of holding hundreds of collections and inspirations. The library is accessible on the first floor and also on the second level. On such second level the master bedroom has its private balcony, a his and hers-style bathroom and walk-in closet, and an exercise room with an adjacent laundry room.
Without question, Stained Glass Garden Home is a piece of art fit for those who appreciate each and every one of its details. A few minutes away are two high-level supermarkets, pharmacies, restaurants and schools such as the International Christian School and Lincoln School. A supreme choice of life.
