Cerro Alto is consistently viewed as Escazu's most exclusive gated residential community. The convenient location, with easy access to the highway, close proximity to the area's finest restaurants, cafes, shopping, business district and international schools, combined with abundant amenities, top level security and stunning views of the city, continue to maintain Cerro Alto's popularity both among the lucky owners, and those buyers looking for the right opportunity to purchase a luxury home here. This particular residence, finished just last year, was inspired by the panoramic, city and mountain views that abound from every corner of the home. The owner and her architect, combined unique, contemporary architecture, with the topography of the lot, to create a unique residence ideal for those who look to bring the exterior into their home. Upon entering the driveway into a covered carport, you will note the combination of materials such as stone, concrete, glass and steel that truly set the tone for the impeccable luxury estate inside. From the driveway, you can either enter the home through the front door, or through the entrance which takes you to the cantilevered decl and pool overlooking the city. This was designed so that when entertaining, guests would not have to walk through the home. Upon entering the home, you will immediately be drawn to the floor to ceiling glass in the backdrop which leads to the pool, terraces and views. However, let's start inside the modern estate home, with the living room just within the entrance, along with a half bathroom, and office to the right. To the left, is the open kitchen, boasting a central island, with floating extractor, and built in stainless steel appliances in the backdrop of the white, contemporary cabinetry. Beyond the kitchen is the utility and maid's quarters, and the kitchen, like the living room, also have direct access to the terrace and pool area. The home, clearly was designed for those who enjoy entertaining. Walking out onto the expansive terrace and pool deck, the view is clearly the star, with panoramic and unobstructed views of the city of San Jose as well as the surrounding mountains. The terrace wraps around the home, and spills onto a sub level deck also boasting tremendous views, and accessible from the front of the home. From this deck, there is a covered, unfinished multi-purpose room, which would make an ideal gym, yoga space, or outdoor lounge area, with an attached bathroom as well. Walking back into the home, and heading up the glass lined staircase, you will come to the first bedroom which boasts a spacious floor plan, master bathroom, and city views from the bedroom windows. This bedroom is located on the half level of the staircase, and as you continue up the stairs, you will find a tv room, , as well as two additional bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms, and of course, the true master suite. The master is situated towards the rear of the home to take advantage of the views, to create a true escape for the owner. The expansive bedroom, is only outdone by the open master bathroom, with sunken jacuzzi tub, floating dual vanity and open plan walk up to closet. This home is a must see to believe.
