Casa de Luz as described by the owners
When you open the doors to the main entrance, Casa de Luz greets you into an integrated social area, towards the pool area and the impressive Guanacaste tree towards the edge of the property. Privacy, discretion and elegance combine in intimacy that only profound joy can bring.
Which area would you highlight in your home?
The facade of the house, it does not have that uncomfortable mouth most houses have… we’ve hidden the garage. The social area because it is wide, ventilated, connected and integrated. The pool with its 25 meter swim lap. The main room with double height ceilings. The cinema and the gym are unique spaces as well. With a drone, I would emphasize the semi-trapezoid property shape that we designed around the trees that accompany the house. Secondary rooms that are master suite size. Oh, and plenty of space for motorcycles, RZRs and other toys, both on the west side of the house and behind the service room .. Greenery, terrace, tree, furniture. It’s a carefully conceived property.
What will you miss most about your house?
Far from what one might suppose, the location of the house in Lindora. Not only for being in the center of a developed area, far from any wall or boundary, protected as few and safe in its environment, but for being one step away from the Automercado, the bakery, restaurants, banks, salons and so much more in Lindora .
The space is open, especially in the back. The lot was designed for that opening without showing it to the front. It’s one of the best lots of Lindora, elevated from the street, without views from the neighbors. The location of Casa Luz cannot be repeated.
Which part of the house do visitors comment on most?
The social area is always praised because it denotes our desire to share. It has already been said: we are not what we have but what we share. Thus, the main room always generates a Wow, since it offers an unexpected double height, the view and its modern metallic staircase in the shape of a snail.
What is your favorite room?
In the cinema we have enjoyed fun, mysterious and sports family moments among others. In the gym we enjoy the privacy of being able to do the exercise at the time it converts us. The terrace and pool have seen our children and grandchildren grow and enjoy. The kitchen has been the setting for a thousand conversations and aftermaths. The whole musicalized house and each atmosphere promoted by illumination designed.
What are the details that you like most about the house?
The first big detail is that we’ve invested a lot of energy into maintaining the property. We have tried to keep it as new and true as possible.. The bathroom details are wonderful, the doors are made by an artist cabinetmaker, Bisazz glass mosaic is the picture on the walls of the bathrooms. The cinema is perfect for popcorn and the floor is Swedish wood. These details remind us life is better in a happy space.
What is the story of Casa de Luz?
For our contemporary taste, passion for design and maximum possible sophistication in simplicity, we originally set ourselves a challenge: how to create a modern home amidst a Spanish Colonial environment. We blend with the environment, and yet, the house suggests from every corner with fine and elegant strokes. From the columns to the discreet access to the second floor cinema and the study, even including closets designed for winter clothes.
We designed and built the house with our family in heart, and it has been the scene of our dreams. At Casa Luz we create the life experience that we now wish to follow at another stage. It has been the cradle of life, of struggle and overcoming, of conciliation and commitment.
Why is Bosques de Lindora a good place to live?
When the Kader family bought this property, the land was worth pennies. When developing it, they had the vision and the generosity to create an open, wide and rich experience, from its central boulevard to the parks and every common area. We took advantage of this and chose a central plot that enjoys the greenery, the open sky and that free feeling that comes from having no visibility to walls or neighbors.
The reputation of Bosques de Lindora for being in an impossible street due to traffic is true occasionally; however, it flows easily and is compensated with the convenience of the facilities around it. It feels like paradise every time you cross the gates into Bosques de Lindora.
The security of Lindora is unparalleled. The experience of the administration brings us peace of mind comparable to that of an apartment. We often sleep with the doors unlocked because the tranquility of the space is such that we can live in peace and total serenity.
