Magnificent home designed and built in a Spanish Eclectic Style, in which certain features are exaggerated by mixing and matching elements of various styles. Roofs are low-pitched and covered in red tiles. The façade features stucco exterior walls and rounded arches over windows and doors. The overall appearance is asymmetrical, yet balanced. Last but not least, we find the chimney finishes, balconies, roman and semi-circular arcades inside and outside the house, double-hang windows, and decorative iron trims. Designed by Costa Rican famous architect Eugenia Mendez.
The inside of the home follows the same style, ornament elements, dark woods, carved turnings, sturdy trestle bases and prominent wrought iron scroll work. The first thing we notice as we approach the main entrance is a series of arches supported by columns an important element in building the arcade of an eclectic style home.
As you enter the house a prominent feature is the wrought iron Spanish-style chandelier, wall sconces and a brick-dome-ceilings, which follows in the stairway box that leads to the second floor. Arches are found throughout the house, from archways, to doors and windows, and alcoves. The entry door and casing, baseboards, and built in furniture all design in deep dark brown town wood – Cedar is widely use all over the house. All floors are carefully design in Almond Tree Wood and a couple of areas in riveted stonework. Countertops come in stone, marble and granite all specially picked to enhance the beauty of the residence.
