Property Description

New to the market is this one of a kind mountain retreat home and an opportunity not to be missed.

This truly is an amazing property and must be seen to be appreciated.

Located in the desirable sub division of Toscana being close to the gate house and all facilities, this home offers Luxury Mountain living in the premium mountain resort of Altos del Maria.  Being set in grounds of over an acre which is further enhanced by having attached green space giving total privacy and seclusion.

Built 8 years ago from only top quality products to include Tangare and Balsamo wood ceilings throughout the home, tar paper and zinc roofing over-layed with antique clay tiles and surround with large rain gutters to name a few.

On the inside of this special home you will find Spanish floor tiles throughout with Casa Dolce Casa Italian tiles in the master en-suite and half bathroom.  Spanish porcelain tile in the guest bathroom.  Windows and doors made from Oak have been custom designed to include insect screens throughout.

The open plan kitchen has been fitted with IKEA wooden cabinets with recessed and inset lighting, all with reachable and pull out sections and smooth open/closers.  Granite has been used for all of the counter tops as well as the large island with inset prep sink, you will also find a raised area for dining/entertaining.  Pan drawers have also been included in the design to allow for storage of larger items.    Top quality appliances all in stainless steel have been used to include double sink unit, Teka Cooktop with center grill burner with cooker hood over, built in Frigidaire electric wall oven with microwave oven over, side by side style Frigidaire 17 cu ft refrigerator and matching 17 cu ft freezer, and a Frigidaire dishwasher.  A washer machine and gas dryer complete the appliances in the Pantry and laundry area.

Off the kitchen area is the great living room.  This room has pre-wired speakers, a water feature and built in oak wooden display area and 3 sets of double wooden doors opening on the large covered terrace.  Also the recessed hallway is where the main entrance of the home can be found which is approached from the outside driveway and parking area.

Leading on from the living is one of the two offices.  This office which could be used as a third bedroom if required, currently has air-conditioning a half bath and a walk in storage closet and oak cabinetry, however, all plumbing is pre-installed if you should wish to add a shower and therefore having a full bathroom.  A door also leads directly on the terrace.

After the office approached via the terrace is the main guest suite.  This bedroom has a built in closet with storage area, high ceilings and private terrace area overlooking the landscaped gardens.  The en-suite bathroom has a large walk in shower, vanity sink with storage under.

To the other side of the house the second office is approached via the terrace.  This room has air-conditioning, recessed lighting and custom designed built in oak units.

At the end of house is the master suite – again approached from the large covered terrace you enter the master suite, a tranquil setting with high wooden ceilings, recessed lighting and ceiling fans.  Positioned to one corner of the bedroom is the very deep soaking tub with picture window overlooking the garden and private terrace area.  Adjoining the master bedroom is the large en-suite bathroom with twin vanity with lighting above, walk in shower and access to the large fully fitted walk in closet.

One of the many great features of this home is the large terrace that runs the whole length of the house and that wraps around at each end.  From the covered terrace a few steps lead down to the lower and additional terrace areas and the Infinity edge pool which is 40 feet by 15 feet, completely tiled with black glass tiles for passive solar heating.  Sand filter and solar-powered Floatron ion generator eliminate the need for chemicals. A small amount of chlorine is used via an in-line dispenser keeping the pool water crystal clear.

On the outside this mountain estate is approached via a large concrete circular driveway which leads to the detached double garage with electric doors, sink area and various built in work bench areas and storage shelving .  A wired propane powered generator is also installed.

Behind the garage area is the private vegetable garden offering many herbs and vegetable selection.

The private gardens to the rear of the house are surrounded by a concrete block wall with a feature teak garden gate leading to the lower outer level garden and meditation labyrinth.

The outer lower garden has many paths and trails offering spectacular views of the valley and creekside seating areas.  There are many flowering trees including acacia, jacaranda, flamboyan, brownea macrophylla and ylang ylang. There is also a large collection of plumeria trees.
