San Jose Costa Rica Real Estate - top home (1,800,000)
Escazu, Costa Rica
This house is extremely well-renowned.
It was featured for a second time in Estilos y Casas Magazine, July 2006, after hot new interior designer, Melisa Garcia, re-did the interior. See the photo-shoot here, but don't miss the other pictures below.
This home is the finest of Escazu Real Estate, and seeks to impart the spirit of Thailand by recreating the welcoming ambience of life in the mountains.
Designed by architect Enrique Barascout, this home interprets and adapts traditional Thai architecture for modern times by including such features as: resting the house on pylons, which make it appear lighter; having wooden columns wider at the base than at the top; and using wood extensively throughout the home. Iron railings in unusual colors woven like a typical Balinese basket provide protection on balconies and terraces, as well as make an artistic statement.
The home is entered through an impressive three meter high bronze door, giving it an unquestionable Thai feel and inspiring the name “Baan Tong,” which means “House of Gold.”
The heart of the home is the living room with its soaring ceiling – up to almost 30 feet high. Twelve foot French doors lead to an airy interior courtyard with a soothing stone fountain.
With an abundance of windows and glass doors, this exceptional home basks in natural light, surrounds itself with spectacular vistas, and interacts peacefully with the bounty of nature outside its walls.
