Casa Terrizzo is an elegant residence situated on a hillside overlooking San JosÚ and the Central Valley, five minutes from Escaz˙ downtown. The minimalistic architecture integrates with the natural slope of the landscaped garden surrounding the house, taking full advantage of the spectacular views and natural illumination. Two large terraces provide shade to the fašade permitting natural ventilation to keep the house cool during the warmest of days.
Floor to ceiling windows allow the greenery from the garden to come inside and enhance the panoramic views.
The property features a large number of spacious social areas, each with its own atmosphere and style. All these areas are easily accessed from the spacious kitchen, which is the heart of the house.
Next to the heated pool there is a large wooden deck, a small rancho and a grill area with a gazebo for shade. Winding paths lead to the upper garden passing colorful flowers and fruit trees to a larger rancho with breathtaking views.
