    Welcome to my 'retirement dream home' which was custom built in 2011 to include amenities that I wanted in a home that I could share with my family & friends. A delayed retirement offers you an opportunity to enjoy all the pleasures & comforts of my beautiful home until I make this dream home my final residence. Located in a 24-lot gated community affording safety & privacy, the property is only 40 minutes to the Juan Santamaria International airport and is less than 10 minutes drive to downtown San Ramon where there is banking, shopping, hospital, pharmacies, churches, small mall with movie theater, numerous local & international cuisine restaurants as well as many more conveniences. Each house in the development is situated on a spacious 5,000+ SM lot allowing for privacy. Currently there are 8 houses occupied by either fulltime or partial-year owner residents with another house under construction to be completed in 2014. Villa Rosa is centrally located in the development with a 360 degree view which encompasses both the gorgeous mountains as well as the Gulf of Nicoya & Pacific Ocean. You can enjoy the most fabulous sunsets from most rooms in the house as well as the main level terrace, the covered pool terrace and the pool deck. The paved, semi-circle drive at the front entrance of the house affords easy access & parking under the covered portico. The house is entered on the main level from this portico through custom iron & glass doors that lead into a large octagon-shaped atrium. Upon entering the house you will immediately be captivated by the elegance of the two-story atrium decorated with hanging tapestries with soaring tray ceilings illuminated with indirect recessed lighting and beautiful chandelier. The floor to ceiling glass doorway leads to a balcony opening to a view of the mountains & Gulf of Nicoya.

These include Kitchen Aid double ovens with convection & steam assist options, induction cooktop, a large toaster/convection oven, microwave, trash compactor, garbage disposal, dishwasher, large farm sink, prep sink, French door refrigerator with ice & water in the door and espresso maker. The kitchen is furnished with elegant custom wood cabinets and granite countertops and includes a center island with 2 barstools. An exterior door leads from the kitchen to the outside terrace where there is a large gas grill equipped with rotisserie and separate burner. A large wooden cabinet is situated on the outside terrace stocked with all the acrylic ware you may need for meals outside on the terrace or by the pool.
