OVERVIEW Chateau Montage includes three structures. First, the expansive main house that architecturally flows outward toward the stunning views of the Pacific Ocean, the iconic Whale's Tale, and the cloud forest that capture your attention from every room in the house. The main house includes three pools and a water feature. Indoor and outdoor show kitchens and a butler's kitchen commandeer the great room with its majestic signature spiral staircase. Motorized recessed windows open entire walls to bring the beauty of the magnificent views inside. Solar energy grid. A private orchard. Visitors will be more than comfortable in their own private guest house featuring two master suites and their own private pool, plus a large caretaker's suite above the four-car garage could also house more guests, in an onsite caretaker is not a household necessity. This stunning residence was designed by the developer/owner to be his private residence before it got listed, so every detail was considered in the design. The award-winning architect is the best in the nation, and has designed numerous other landmark developments in Costa Rica.
