This four-bedroom family home in the gated community of Costa Serena has been expanded and completely remodeled to give it a distinctive contemporary style.
The elegant entry vestibule leads to a formal living and dining area overlooking the beautifully landscaped back yard. The fully-enclosed kitchen features Italian cabinetry, quartz stone countertops and high quality stainless steel appliances, including a side-by-side refrigerator and freezer, built-in oven and microwave, gas cooktop and dishwasher. A handy butler area (for additional storage and food preparation) divides the kitchen from the service quarters, which include an air-conditioned maid’s room and private bathroom. Full laundry facilities are located in a large covered side terrace.
In a separate area of the main floor, there are also two private offices, and a spacious den with luxurious hardwood flooring.
The second floor features a family room and four bedrooms that have been remodelled with high quality porcelain tile flooring and modern fixtures. The master suite has a large walk-in closet and beautifully appointed bathroom with glass-enclosed shower and toilet, a free-standing soaker tub and elegant Italian cabinetry providing ample storage space. Three additional bedrooms each have their own in-suite bathrooms and walk-in closets.
A large covered terrace with retractable awnings allows for comfortable, outdoor living year-round. The most recent addition to the home is a large deck in the garden and outdoor full bathroom for guests. Within the structure, there are electrical and plumbing connections that would facilitate the installation of a heated swimming pool or hot tub in the future.
The elegant circular driveway at the entry to the home allows for parking of up to five vehicles (two in a covered carport).
Within the community, there is a central common area with extensive green areas, multiple playgrounds and a mini-football (soccer) field with artificial turf. There is 24-hour guard-gated security at the entrance and monitoring of the perimeter walls.
Costa Serena is perfectly situated to take advantage of the well-established commercial areas of the prestigious Costa del Este neighborhood. A 24-hour supermarket, well-equipped gym, fine wine store and deli, multiple banks and restaurants are an easy five-minute walk from the community. The new “Town Center” shopping mall (scheduled to open in 2018) is only 500 meters away. It will be home to high-end boutiques and department stores, additional fine dining establishments, a movie theatre and the newest branch of Panama’s leading private hospital, Pacifica Salud.
