Costa Rican Property is a Tropical Palazzo at $16 Million

Property of the Week: this villa boasts private and immediate access to one of the country's most gorgeous beaches.

By Bea Isaacson

Surf’s up, dudes. Located just twenty minutes away from the lively, sun-soaked surfing town of Tamarindo, right on the country’s Pacific Coast, is La Vida Mar, a Costa Rican property that is as magnetic in its luxury beach aesthetic as it is remarkable for its almost unrivalled beach access.

This oceanfront villa is mere steps from the golden sands of Playa Avellanas, one of the most gorgeous beaches across the whole of Costa Rica.

Built in the contemporary colonial style, tall floor to ceiling glass windows renders the ocean breeze and the blue-on-blue horizon a constant presence in this perfect beach property, whilst the protected mangrove and river estuary next door only adds extra depth to this tropical paradise.

And prospective owners of the five bedroom, five bathroom Costa Rican property will be assured to know that La Vida Mar – which, fittingly, translates to Sea Life – is outfitted with all the privacy and security of the Avellanas guard-gated community it is located within.

“This one of a kind home would be a record offering price for a home in Hacienda Pinilla,” said Robert F. Davey, who represents the property on behalf of Costs Rica Christie’s.

“The Avellanas gated neighborhood is limited to only seven beachfront estates, with La Vida Mar on the premier lot. The unequaled beachfront location and its world-class surf breaks, straight out front and up and down the beach, is an amenity that is unmatched,” he said.

Sprawling across four acres, with the property itself coming in at 7,000 sq ft, this beach mansion was designed by Boca Raton based interior design firm Colestock and Muir, who have seamlessly combined elements of the Spanish Revival style with the colonial architecture so in vogue with similar properties across Central America and the Caribbean.

Owners and guests alike will enjoy the copious opportunities to enjoy the sunset – and sunrise, if so inclined – over the ocean’s horizon, whilst the property’s infinity-edge saltwater pool and Jacuzzi are also major selling points.

Other amenities include two garages, a full basement with a temperature-controlled wine cellar, a full-house backup powerplant, and even premium artificial astroturf for water conservation.

Otherwise, the owners of this Costa Rican property can also enjoy all the glorious features of the location, both its nature offerings and that of the Hacienda Pincilla Beach Club, which includes an oceanfront pool, a restaurant, a fitness center and spa.

“Many of our clients are Silicon Valley entrepreneurs seeking a surf paradise in Costa Rica,” Davey continued. “And so the option of including the attached conservation element of this property is particularly appealing.”
