Costa Rica Real Estate – Widely recognized as one of the most luxurious residences in Costa Rica, the 11,000 square-foot “smart” Villa Paraiso is currently on the market for $6.5 million.
Designed by Costa Rican architect Ronald Zurcher (who also designed Costa Rica’s only Four Seasons Hotel), the property is comprised of a Spanish-style main villa, a coach house, a garage, a heli-pad, a pool and horse stables. The separate coach house is located on a secluded cliff, and includes an executive office suite, a gym and a design studio.
Additionally, a custom 300-foot suspension bridge provides private access from the property to the nearby bohemian beach town of Montezuma.
Villa Paraiso is a smart home that’s equipped with state-of-the-art entertainment and security technology that can be controlled from anywhere in the world on a smartphone or tablet through an ELAN Entertainment & Control System.
Costa Rican technology integrator Rolando Cordero at AudioCinema integrated the home’s lighting, security, and audio/video entertainment technology into a user-friendly ELAN system so that all of the home’s technology would be accessible and controllable from ELAN’s mobile app.
This smart functionality also includes the remote control and automation of a cutting-edge multi-room audio system and a home theater with seating for eight.
