"Esto Es Vida"
This Is Life
This property, was aptly named (as seen above) by Panamanian surfers while enjoying a cold beer in the infinity pool, and watching the sun set beautifully over the Pacific ocean and Isla Cebaco....
- All after a top notch day of surfing at nearby Playa Morrillo.
This absolutely stunning home is perched atop a 1 hectare (9,678 m2) piece of land, marking the highest point of a beautiful headland surrounded on 3 sides by the Pacific ocean, producing a 300 degree view of Isla Cebaco, Playa Morrillo, Playa Mataoscura, Cerro Hoya National Park, Punta Mariato, and more. This property is located within a gated community just a few minutes drive from the local village of Mata Oscura, and 40 minutes south of Mariato
(1 hr. 40 from Santiago). This property hosts a gravel driveway leading to the magnificent home, which is surrounded by gorgeous landscaping including: 30+ palm trees, a variety of fruit trees, pine, tropical plants/flowers, and Japanese grass. The property is supplied water via an underground aquifer, and hosts its own water storage tank and pump system. Electricity is supplied by the municipal electrical grid, but the home is also equipped with its own 17KW Generac Generator which is programmed to turn on automatically
during rare power outages.
The tri-level home itself was designed and constructed by Mario and Alberto Pinzon, with a modern taste of luxury, but an open layout well suited for the tropics and incredible ambiance of this property's location. The home has been built to withstand earthquake/ground movement using steel and concrete earthquake restraints, and steel reinforcement on all columns to provide beyond exceptional support to the structure of the home under any situation/stress. A number of high density copper lightning rods have also been installed in various parts of the property to provide protection and safety to the structure, its electrical systems, and the human inhabitants (most importantly).
Entering the house through the front archway, one will immediately notice the open layout of the living area, kitchen, and outdoor terrace. Descending the staircase to the living area, one crosses over the beautiful indoor water feature (waterfall/pond) designed by Mario Pinzon, which instantly adds tropical flavor and tranquility to the interior of the home. The spacious living area, as well as the rest of the home, consists of stunning locally handcrafted furniture made from local hardwoods, with moderate-dark stain accenting the light colors of the home/structure itself. The kitchen is made up of custom cabinetry and granite counters, a large pantry, and grants direct access to the outdoor terrace. The terrace itself is a sight to behold. 60 feet of tiled patio with custom furnishings and hammocks provide incredible views over the ocean facing portion of the property, and of course, the Pacific ocean itself along with the islands and nearby beaches. Descending the stairs from the terrace, one finds him/herself standing at the edge of the beautiful turquoise water of the 25'x16' infinity pool and surrounding rock/tile patio area.
The home consists of 2 guest bedrooms, each with glass doors granting views to the landscape/beaches in the distance and access to the pool area. Each of these bedrooms also includes its own bathroom with a tropical modern design, tiling, and showers crafted of local stone.
Ascending the main staircase found in the primary living area, one arrives to the upstairs master suite, spacious enough for a king size bed with still plenty of room to walk. The master suite hosts a large and luxurious bathroom and closet, including a Jacuzzi tub with windows looking over the Pacific ocean. From the main portion of the master suite, one has incredible views of the mountains, beaches, and island, seen through various tall glass windows and 2 glass doors which open directly onto the upper balcony (spacious enough for a small table and chairs), offering the perfect location for that morning coffee or evening cocktail.
Other notable elements of this property include the 2 car over-hang parking area, 2 storage rooms (1 of which is large enough to store kayaks, surfboards, etc.), a laundry room, an outdoor enclosure for pets, a 9 camera security system installed on the property grounds, and last but not least: a communal neighborhood "rancho" and natural swimming pool directly beachfront, just a few minutes walk from the property.
This property, being sold as a "furnished" home, is unlike anything else on this coastline.
Modern luxury, comfort, and design of a Southern California dream home meet the magic of tropical Panama....
Will take your breath away.
