Located in Los Angeles de San Rafael de Heredia, this very very special property is close to all the shopping and fine dinning of the big city yet buffered by a rural setting close to La Condesa Hotel.
The total property is 3.12 acres (13,642 mtrs sq)
The main house (3 bdrooms, LR, DR, Kitchen, den/office, 2 1/2 baths, 2 fireplaces, fully wheelchair accessible) is approx 240 mtrs sq with nearly an additional 200 mtrs sq of uncovered, tiled outdoor entertainment space and an additional 50 mtrs sq of covered entertainment space. There is also a charming, covered Bar-B-Que area.
The apartments include on the first level a 2 bdroom, 1 bath, full kitchen and storage space caretaker quarters, 2 car garage, large storage bodega. On the second level (complete with access ramp--10% incline) there are 2 apartments, both are large studio style with full kitchens and baths---one kitchen and bath is wheelchair accessible as are all common areas. There is plenty of storage space. There is shared fully furnished common space between the apartments and a beautiful, large covered porch, all with stunning westerly vista of the city of San Jose and the Central Valley. There is a third floor that includes a gymnasium and another full bath. The gym could also serve as additional private guest quarters. This construction totals approx 250 sq mtrs in the apartments, 160 sq mts in the garage and bodega.
There is a green house and attached 3 stall horse barn with a huge wash stall and tack area. This totals another 70 sg mtrs of construction.
Below there is a fully wheelchair accessible 3 bedroom (one is a loft) guest house with kitchen, LR, 1 1/2 baths, Each bedroom has a lovely hand-painted sink and huge windows that open directly onto a fireplaced covered porch that also has a large Jacuzzi that will seat 6 adults. There are stunning westerly vistas of the mountains surrounding the Central Valley and the City of San Jose. The covered living area is approx 200 mtrs, aprox 115 of which is indoor living space.
This part of the property has generous uncovered entertaining space including a beautiful tiled dining deck (with its large custom painted tile mural) overlooking a peaceful waterfall, huge water garden (could easily be turned into a swimming pool) and spectacular landscaping. There are also charming brick covered area for lounging, as with the rest of the property, this is all fully wheel chair accessible.
The entire property borders a river canyon with a year round waterfall. The river walk is like traveling in your own private jungle!
There are so many custom features on this property---each house has its own unique, large, custom made stained glass window, there are two very large custom painted tiled murals, professional landscaping, stunning custom designed black iron entry gates (separate for the main property and the guest property). In total there are 11 bedrooms, 7 full baths, 2 half baths and 5 kitchens.
The property is being marketed as a whole, but is actually two legally separated lots. The upper lot (main house, garage, bodega, apartments and caretaker's house, stable and green house) is on 5243 mtrs sq and the lower lot (guest house, water falls and water garden, and pasture) is on 8399 mtrs sq. This lower lot is large enough that it could also be split if the new owners wanted to build additional housing on this grand estate property.
Bought as a whole, it is perfect for a retiring couple who wants to live in the main house, use the apartments to house elderly parents, and the guest house for visiting children and other family. There is also plenty of room to build a tennis court in the pasture area below the guest house if you do not have horses. It is also perfect for a corporate retreat property.
There is absolutely nothing else like this on the market today in the Central Valley and it is being priced to sell. This one will go fast!
