Luxurious hideout in Costa Rica
If you are seeking for a new villa, which would be cut off from the world, and yet offer all the necessities of modern life, we have the right thing for you...
Casa Magayon, which Sarco Architects have created, is a luxury hideaway located on an isolated hill slope in the jungle of Costa Rica, overlooking the Gulf of Papagayo. Every aspect of its design combines the interior and exterior, while taking maximum advantage of this amazing location.
The core of this project is an open space on each level, which divides this home in a socially and private lap. The courtyard of the main floor extends to the suspension bridge at 12 meters above the ground, with virtually panoramic view. On one side of the courtyard is a platform for jumping into the infinity pool.
Most of the rooms in this mansion are glass cubes, designed to merge with the natural environment. In one of the five bedrooms, you'll wake up next to the wall of the jungle, overlooking a quiet bay facing the Pacific. A sense of peace that this room offers has its echo in virtually every room.
The main bathroom has a stand-alone bath with a window that frames the superb views of the ravine, where a calming brook creates after a rain storm. There is a large shower with frameless door, which opens to the shower outdoors. What more do you need for a break?
