Condominio Uno, and particularly, the penthouse, is the exception to the rule when a developer truly places quality over commercial instinct. First, its location directly in front of the Parque del Cafe, was carefully selected to provide residents not only with the visual pleasure of being surrounded by abundant century old vegetation and fresh air, but also the central location to provide them with easy access to downtown San Jose, the airport, the western suburbs or to the Central Pacific coast. Once the location was selected, the lengthy and detailed design process begun with the developer, in conjunction with award winning architect Jaime Rouillon. No details or expense was spaired in the design and completion of this building, whose amenities include underground parking, lobby/concierge with keycard access, rooftop terrace, bbq and gym. The penthouse, however, is without a doubt, the crown jewel of the Uno condominiums. With private key entry access only, residents are greeted with a grand sense of exclusivity and privacy as they walk off the elevator into what is the only residence on the upper floor. The vestibule directly in front of the elevator is the perfect canvas for a custom piece of artwork, and intelligently divides the foyer from the living area. Just to the left, you will find two story ceilings and floor to ceiling double pane glass imported from Germany to create the most seamless aesthetic and noise free atmosphere. In this space, which looks over the majestic Parque del Cafe and stunning and abundant trees, is host to the living room, dining room and lounge/bar area. Central air conditioning, intelligent lighting and Italian wood floors are just a few of the details that accent this space, however, the view and sense of bringing the outdoors and its abundant natural light are masterfully done. Behind the living room, is a spectacular chef's kitchen, equipped with imported Italian cabinetry and state of the art accessories, Thermador appliances and impressive design features. The kitchen, while located behind the social areas was also carefully designed to incorporate the natural light and views from the exterior of the building. Behind the kitchen, is a small, yet functional service quarters, with laundry and auxiliary space located in a separate utility area of the apartment closer to the living areas. On the opposite side of the vestibule entrance, you will find a stunning half bath with marble finishes, and the first of the two bedrooms. The bedroom boasts a walk in closet, ensuite master bath, as well as a spacious layout highlighted by the floor to ceiling glass facing the park, creating the perfect place to rest. Walking down the hallway towards the true master suite, you will find a tv room/lounge/office on the right, equipped with a half bath, and access to the utility room/laundry or library just behind it. Should the owner either require a larger service quarter's or a third bedroom, this area can easily be configured to accommodate those needs. Finally, the master suite. This penthouse was designed for those who appreciate the finer things, and the master suite will not disappoint those with even the most refined taste, with dual walk in closets, an ensuite master bath and an expansive layout designed to create a master bedroom, which can also host a private living/lounge area for the picture perfect escape from the day's hustle and bustle. All of this, of course, framed within the masterful views overlooking the park, and peaceful views of the city lights and greenery that surrounds Uno. Serious inquiries only.
