Jade House Listing information
Located on a beautiful perch in the much sought after area of Escaleras, the Jade
House is an extraordinary example of tropical luxury. Overlooking the South Pacific
Coast of Costa Rica between Dominical and Uvita, this iconic home represents the
pinnacle of tropical living for the discerning buyer. Located at an elevation of 900 feet,
it receives constant mountain and ocean breezes and has amazing unobstructed
views of the Pacific Ocean and coastline.
The 9,100 square foot contemporary home has 5 air-conditioned bedrooms and 6 1/2
baths, and the owner has spared no expense in tastefully furnishing and outfitting the
home with all the modern amenities one could want in an exquisite showcase home.
Through the steel and glass doors one enters into a foyer with 40-foot tall hardwood
ceilings… From the foyer, one enters into the great room which lays out in an open
floor plan that tastefully includes the living, dining, and kitchen areas which includes
top end appliances such as a Viking and industrial-sized double fridge and freezer; all
of these elements are spread out over classic stone floors. Your backdrop view from
all areas is the Pacific Ocean over the three level infinity pool, which surrounds the
outdoor living area and includes a covered children’s pool and a swim up bar to
create an oasis of family living and great entertaining. Entertaining around these
idyllic pools with an infinite ocean view backdrop is an easy and enjoyable task with a
well equipped outdoor kitchen, with a top-of-the-line Lynx grill and a large paella
stove for feeding as many guests as you please.
The glass walls which frame the Pacific Ocean on the main floor master suite fold
back to a private patio and pool to allow for full immersion and enjoyment of the
perfect year-round climate. All bedroom suites have private bathrooms, double
shower heads, sun deck access, and stellar ocean views. A separate office can also
double as a 5th bedroom.
Creatively hidden behind the bookshelf outside the office reveals a hidden staircase
and access to the 900 square foot children’s bedroom with its own bathroom, and 6
custom bunk beds which is perfect for visiting families. Engineered to perfection, the
home has a state of the art intelligent lighting system, a top of the line security
monitoring/camera system, and a multi-room wireless Sonos entertainment system
with state of the art large flat screen TVs.
The owner has also outfitted the home to be as sustainable as possible, employing a
backup rain capture system, a Purasol solar water heating system, a very impressive
96-panel, 24 Kilowatt grid-tied photovoltaic solar power system which offsets the
majority of electricity use for the stately home (added bonus is a 8 Kw battery reserve
system which serves as a great backup power source for when the grid power goes
out, ensuring seamless comfort and convenience 24/7).
There is also an additional 900 sq/ft guest house with 1 bedroom and a loft fully
furnished with washer & dryer, and state of the art kitchen appliances, which serves
perfectly as a care takers house. Below the guest house is an ample deep and tall
three-car garage which has been perfectly and neatly outfitted by the current owner
