Panama, Luxury Mountain-view Villa in Garden Estate.
Located in Paso Ancho near Volcan.
There are fewer more perfect locations to live in this world than the highlands of Panama’s Chiriqui Province. Writers have described the setting, with its steep pine tree covered slopes as the “Shangri-La of Central America”. The similarities to the fabled literary world are many; At times you can drive down the mountainside and look down on the tops of clouds in the valleys below.
Above: aerial view of the LAS PLUMAS master Villa and the TANAGER guest house.
Picture in your mind, a wide flower filled garden that slopes down to a rushing, bubbling, trout bearing mountain river. The altitude is around 5,000 feet so in this tropical setting the air is fresh and pure. In the background you see the peak of the 11,400 foot Baru Mountain.
As you enter the Las Plumas master home, you cannot miss the elegance of the decor. The room is spacious with high cathedral ceilings. The furnishing have obviously been chosen with great care- all the way down to statuesque grandfather clock.
Pass through onto the spacious west facing patio. This is a perfect spot to sit with friends and a glass of wine and watch Volcan’s famous sunsets.
The kitchen and dining area are well appointed with two large refrigerators, microwave etc.
The dining table seats 9 persons.
The master bedroom has been designed to allow lots of natural daylight and sunshine to flood in.
The spare bedroom is light and bright and with its own en-suite bathroom.
Where would a luxury home be without the obligatory office. The villa comes with high speed Internet and cable television hook up.
Bathrooms are elegantly designed with floor to ceiling tiles. There is a choice of a shower or a relaxing bathtub.
One aspect that a home cannot have TOO much of, and that is closet or storage space. Las Plumas has a spacious pantry.
