Villa Vento Sunset Residence is an extraordinary combination of luxury, privacy, and discretion that emcompasses the finest finishes, gorgeous views and a spacious layout. One of the most engaging features of the house is the fact that it is located in a low-profile gated community accessed by a subtle entrance off the main road. Hence, it combines the convenience of living in a safe, gated community, located in a very strategic point in between Escazu and Santa Ana, and the amenities of an exclusive development that has walking trails throughout, resort-style pool, clubhouse, sundeck, tennis court, terrace, and a 24/7 guarded entrance, ensuring maximum security.

As you approach the house, other luxury estates along with two residential towers peek out and set the tone for the exclusive experience inside the development. The entrance greets you with a covered porte-cochere which is framed by four columns and offers the perfect shelter to protect yourself, and your children from the weather, which makes it very convenient for drop offs and guests. The facade of the house is timeless contemporary architecture , and the expansive pivot door invites your curiosity to discover what is inside. It is cohesive with the rest of the houses in the same community, but clearly distinguishable, as the architect and homeowner Alberto Reifer carefully designed each and every corner of this custom luxury estate.

After you pass the front door you are immediately drawn by the sight of the hillside and mountains in the forefront, as seen through the colossal glass doors and windows. As you step outside and down the cascading stairs, two crying walls lead the way to the backyard. Once there, the extensive nature of it immediately teems your head with ideas for entertaining your guests, and the possibilities seem endless: a barbecue on the terrace or next to the pool, cocktails with some friends in the adjacent bar, a soccer game in the field, a basketball tournament with the children…A rare find to be able to blend the privacy and security of a gated community, with the space and land found in this private estate.

The first story features marble floors throughout yet softened by immaculate, custom woodwork on the ceilings and accent walls. It hosts the kitchen area with sliding glass doors that overlook the valley, the formal dining room that integrates with the living room, an extra breakfast room, a tv room, and an additional bathroom with access through the terrace, perfect to be used when enjoying the pool. The stairs have hardwood railing coupled with glass and lead to both the second story and the basement with access to the enclosed garage. The garage features ample, covered enclosed parking, and the basement is ideal for a playroom, guest apartment or studio, and offers direct access to the backyard. This entire floor is a teenager’s dream, and/or could be converted into a self encompassing apartment.

On the second floor you will find hardwood floors, built-in bookshelves, three guest/childrens bedrooms and the master bedroom. The master bedroom offers his and hers walk-in closets, stunning custom wood headboard, access to a private balcony, an ensuite bathroom with luxury finishes including a bathtub with views, a separate shower and dual vanities. However, the crown jewel of the master suite is the panoramic views from every corner of the room making it a true escape for the homeowners. The children’s bedrooms include private balconies with stunning views and walk-in closets, and the additional guest room also boasts a walk-in closet and ensuite bathroom. The house comes with the kitchen appliances, custom chandeliers and matching accent lights throughout, as well electric blackout shades.

If you want to consolidate a luxurious lifestyle, privacy and family bonding, this beautiful estate located in a discreet community, close to all kinds of amenities and the best schools, truly is the best option for you and your family.
