Protected by White-Trunked Tropical Trees
Reduced from $849k
Location: Hatillo, Dominical, Costa Rica
Two sides of the home are protected by white-trunked tropical trees that give inspiration for the home’s design, “Casa Ramas: the house of branches.” Casa Ramas is a larger home for the area at approximately 3500 square feet offering four bedrooms and four and a half bathrooms.
The home's main focal point is its ocean view down a beautiful jungle valley providing two benefits. Firstly, it affords good views to all four master bedrooms and secondly, it allows for sea breezes to pass naturally through the home which contributes to passive cooling reducing the home's reliance on air-conditioning. Casa Ramas is not only extremely efficient, but its sustainable design creates a living experience that connects the interior seamlessly with the exterior jungle surroundings.
The home is a two-level bar-shaped structure with a great room on the lower level and bedrooms on the second floor. There is also a fourth bedroom on the lower level of the home for any guest who wishes to have complete privacy from the rest of the residence.
When arriving you pass through an open lobby to the terrace which has a stunning infinity pool directed toward the ocean view and jungle valley views. A large simple protective roof covers both the home and provides much sun and rain protection for the terrace. This overhang is on the south side of the house which is the perfect solar orientation for this location in the northern tropics. The roof also slopes 10 degrees south, the optimum alignment for solar photovoltaic panels and solar hot water collectors.
This is a unique opportunity to own a brand new luxury ocean view home within a gated community a short five-minute drive to the beach. Don’t miss it.
