The Terraces at San Martin offer a bird’s eye view of Costa Ballena
A lazy morning at San Martin is like a mix of Modern Home and National Geographic. After disconnecting from the Internet and the modern décor of a luxurious split-level townhouse, a few steps through a patio door takes you into a whole different world of worlds. To the west, a ridge overlooks Malibu-style vistas of the Pacific coastline and its protected waters and marine life. In the blink of an eye, the descent of toucans into the rainforest canopy shifts your presence into a different room of Mother Nature’s abode.
Life at San Martin integrates into the fabric of the surrounding culture and lush landscape. Built on bluffs overlooking San Martin beach, on the very edge of jungle preserve lands, The Terraces at San Martin immerse you in Costa Rica’s natural wonders. The townhouses form an exclusive gated community embedded in the emerald rainforest, where inspirational Pacific sunsets are just part of a daily routine. A system of trails offers passage through the surrounding rainforest, with options to hike to a nearby waterfall or descend to the sands of San Martin Beach.
The development’s seamless blend of modern architecture into the rainforest canopy has given rise to life in a luxurious treehouse, bordered by the unrestricted passage of vibrant rainforest life. Privacy design features separate community life from a meditational outward focus, with floor-to-ceiling windows that frame breathtaking views of the rainforest canopy and Costa Ballena shore.
To get a true sense of what luxurious treehouse living is all about, take all of the above and indulge in it from the comforts of a contemporary cocoon featuring Italian Gres porcelain tiles, recessed LED lighting, high speed Internet and a modern kitchen with an induction cooktop and a built-in microwave and oven. Other high-end touches include imported kitchen and bathroom cabinetry, as well as designer closets with racks, poles, shelves and drawers.
It seems almost impossible to imagine a collision of worlds that leaves no trace, but luxurious treehouse life at San Martin proves that multiple environments can blend together without disrupting the balance. The first phase of The Terraces at San Martin is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016, with ocean view luxury villas starting at $590,000.
