Villa Bougainvillea is a gorgeous and very unique property, comprised of a central main villa, 3 guest villas (for guests or rental), rancho with BBQ, lots of lush vegetation and a lovely view to San José.
The 4,800-ft2 (445-m2) main villa has 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, large living/dining room, elaborate kitchen with several granite counter-tops, and cooking island. There is a formal entrance (that steps down to the living room), an office, huge family/game room (with pool table, plumbed bar) opening to a deck with observation area for view of Central Valley.
As you pass the living room, take a few steps up to a 75′ long river rock wall that stretches from the beginning of the living room to the end of the hallway where you will find two bedrooms with a bath in between on the right. At the end of the hallway, there is a stairway up to the left which is the 3rd bedroom or second master bedroom.
The principle elegant master bedroom is a show stopper with its fireplace, gorgeous Jacuzzi (surrounded by salmon colored marble) and palatial pillars. There is an additional marble counter with small sink perfect for a morning kitchen. You then pass the large shower enclosure followed by the toilet and bidet enclosure. Another marble counter adorns double sinks, and walk-through closet finally completes the inside villa tour.
As a matter of fact, the house has THREE cozy fireplaces! It also has a high-tech security system, intercom system, high-speed Internet, cable TV wired for each room, etc. On a lower level of the house is a laundry room with 4 machines, an employee’s room and bath.
There is also an oversized two-car garage, and there is plenty of room for a pool or helipad, if desired. There is also a very large in-ground water tank and pump for emergencies.
It’s a fantastic private estate with lots of room for guests and entertaining. With a total of 7 bedrooms and 7-1/2 baths, it could be a very nice B&B, or you could just rent out the guest villas individually for a bit of rental income.
It’s located in a very nice, peaceful area with other nice estates around, in the hills above San José, with a nice spring-like climate year-round, fresh unpolluted air.
San Ramón de Tres Rios, La Union, Cartago
The property sits amidst an exclusive small, private, gated enclave. Villa Bougainvillea was constructed of local stone, hardwood and glass on an 1,835 m2 (19,744 square feet) lot. A little less than 1/2 acre. Though there is 7,000 sq. feet of construction, the villa itself boasts 4,500 sq. ft. of spectacular living on a lushly manicured hillside lot with 100′ walls of glass for viewing the countryside, mountain range and city below.
It is a perfect elevation for viewing brilliantly colorful birds, butterflies, squirrels and picturesque rowed coffee farm plantations and large estates. Renown for its clean air, and forested area in the much sought after cooler foothill area of San Ramon de Tres Rios, Costa Rica.
It is 10 minutes to San Jose, 10 minutes to major universities, 10 minutes to great shopping malls and theaters with English. Drop down to closest town (Tres Rios) to see a movie and be served sushi, or pizza, or drinks, by waiters in tuxedos at our fabulous new 15-theater complex. World class medical facilities a few minutes away in the new Momentum Pinares tower in Curridabat.
