Set on a hilltop within the desirable community of Las Huacas, Casa Ladera is a rare opportunity to own an exquisite family home. Its timeless Spanish architecture is surrounded by nature and designed to make the most of its enviable Pacific ocean views.
Less than a 5-minute drive to the beach in Playa Guiones, the property comprises two dwellings on over 2800 square meters of land. There is a two-level 4 bedroom main home, separate studio casita, and enough land to add another small casita with a view.
A gallery style living room welcomes you with tall ceilings and an abundance of natural light that draws your eyes up to the second level mezzanine. The living room is inviting and comfortably furnished with a thoughtful mix of new and antique furnishings and a gallery wall of select art. Beautiful French doors open onto a large veranda overlooking the garden and towards the Pelada Headlands and Playa Ostional in the distance.
The master suite is spacious with earthy tones and a subtly romantic ambiance. A bespoke indoor/outdoor bathroom features interior double vanities and a terrace with an ‘everyday’ outdoor shower, clawfoot bathtub, and sitting area. The French doors open wide to let in the balmy hilltop breezes.
A well appointed kitchen features white marble countertops, custom cabinetry with self-closing hardware, Thermador stove and dishwasher, and custom floor tiles adorned with a motif inspired by a long-admired mansion in Guatemala. The kitchen opens to the furnished veranda and patio dining area for relaxed family time and easy entertaining overlooking the salt water pool and views of Punta Garza and the main break in Playa Guiones.
The well maintained multi-tiered land features native plants and trees, and a path from the pool deck leads to the lower garden with productive fruit trees such as grapefruit, orange, banana, and papaya, as well as ample space for another casita.
Mango loves everything about Casa Ladera. Its timeless Spanish design is well integrated in the tropical landscape and makes the most out of the stunning ocean views. You are sure to see monkeys in the trees and enjoy spectacular sunsets. This exquisite family home is one for creating meaningful memories with family and friends. Not too mention, the location couldn’t be better with a short drive to the beach and local private schools.
The owners designed the home and are long time residents of Nosara. They paid meticulous attention to the build and integrated modern conveniences that include an automatic gated entry, two car garage, smart programmable lights and fans, a full home water filtration system, 26 solar panels, garden irrigation, security features, and a separate surfboard bodega.
The solid craftsmanship, timeless Spanish design, and Las Huacas ocean view location make Casa Ladera one of the most desirable family homes on the market that will be enjoyed for years to come.
