Natural luxury in a privileged setting. Casa Essentia offers an exquisite blend of materials and design meant to awaken the senses and combine the natural elements of the forest with genuine luxury and comfort. Designed by renowned Garnier architects, Casa Essentia boasts a harmonious open feel with a warm modern touch of wood and glass to take advantage of its multilevel charm, water features and Guanacaste trees. The 2021m2 property is nestled in a privileged location in Villa Real, Santa Ana, next to the private natural reserve and with seductive city and mountain views.
A private cobblestone road leads up to Casa Essentia where swaying bamboos and large Guanacaste trees provide the backdrop to this inviting home. Step onto the cedar pathway and over the playful carp fish to a welcoming double-hinged antique hardwood door. A meticulously crafted natural stone wall guides the way into the main social area of Casa Essentia, a large integrated living and dining room area surrounded by three expansive glass walls that bring nature back into the home with majestic views of the pool, mountains, and the twinkle of Santa Ana city lights.
Glass doors connect the social area and the large terrace with enticing natural views framed by wooden columns and indian-cane detailed ceilings. The terrace and wood gazebo accompany a soothing water feature and majestic Guanacaste trees that create an inspiring setting for yoga, meditation, or peaceful reading while enjoying the forest breeze and Santa Ana mountain views. A bordering turkish-stone solar-heated pool extends from the terrace all the way past the gazebo and seems to float above nature. On the other side of the terrace, Casa Essentia includes an independent guest room on the second level all made of cedar wood.
The Casa Essentia kitchen is flooded with natural light with an ideal distribution to enjoy and share. The large central kitchen island incorporates an exquisite cooking range with the other stainless steel appliances conveniently located around this area. The kitchen also boasts impeccable solid wood cabinets and a large pantry.
The master bedroom is located on the main level of Casa Essentia and offers ample space and a private sitting area.
