Designed by renowned architect Ronald Zurcher (4-Seasons Hotel), this amazing contemporary 3-bedroom 4,200 square foot beachfront luxury home is situated on 500 feet of spectacular beach frontage on Costa Rica's Pacific coast. It offers the ultimate experience in adventure and tranquility. Located on the Osa Peninsula close to Corcovado National Park, considered the jewel of Costa Rica, National Geographic lists the area as one of the most biodiverse locations in the world. This is because most of the Osa Peninsula is proteted from development. Mono Lisa is situated in Drake Bay, a gateway to the park. There is also an airport in Drake Bay.
This seaside gem, built in 2008, features soaring floor-to-ceiling glass walls that offer limitless sightings of wildlife, including three species of monkeys, blue morpho butterflies, and magnificent scarlet macaws.
All interiors boast custom teak and cedar wood finishes with striking architectural design and built to the highest specifications. A granite kitchen features a bar and a separate breakfast nook. The kitchen also includes a generous sized prep island with a separate sink, and a large walk-in pantry. Three en-suite bedrooms include a master suite with an indigenous teak floor, marble bathroom with whirlpool tub, and a wrap-around teak deck. A safe room/office could also be used as a 4th bedroom.
Living and dining areas can be completely opened to a huge lanai where you can watch monkeys pass by, relax to the call of toucans, listen to the soothing sound of waves, and view the beachfront and ocean below.
A rare find, this one acre plus grounds are replete with countless trees, among them cashew, guava, banana, and mango, all of which provide fruit for wildlife. A romantic hibiscus-canopied stairway leads down to two golden-sand beaches perfect for swimming, while a cave, and a natural jetty with panoramic views of mountains and the bay add an enchanting dimension to this unique home.
