Axiom Development Group, a company with global expertise in luxury residential, commercial, urban, recreational, and resort development, is proud to announce the selection of “Meridian House” as the winner of a prestigious International Property Award for 2016. The $2.9 million mountain estate, Axiom’s flagship property in its Costa Rica Sierra Collection, will receive this year’s award for “Best Individual Property, Central and South America.”
“We are thrilled to be recognized internationally with this award for the highest levels of achievement in the industry,” says Michael Himes, a founding partner of Axiom Development Group. “We have successfully created the vision that we set out to build, and this award validates the tireless efforts of our entire team.”
Set in the cloud forest of the Costeña Mountains, Meridian House sits on a ridge 2,000 feet above Costa Rica’s southwestern Pacific coastline. Open and transparent, the estate blends harmoniously into its breathtaking surroundings, with 270-degree views through panoramic window walls that deliver azure blues and lush emeralds at every turn. The estate’s subtle architecture blurs the lines between interior and exterior living, inviting light mountain breezes, and even low-lying clouds, into its contemporary living spaces. Balancing modern and sustainable design and construction, Meridian House embodies the leading edge of sustainable building practices, with a focus on mitigating detrimental environmental impacts through the use of state-of-the-art waste management and water treatment systems, alternative energy sources and energy-efficient appliances and lighting.
A renowned mark of excellence, the International Property Awards are judged by an esteemed panel of professionals hailing from a wide range of industry disciplines. As part of the organization’s overall industry recognition, awards are presented annually to one residential property selected in each of nine geographic regions, including Africa, Asia Pacific, Arabia, Canada, the Caribbean, Central and South America, Europe, the U.K., and the United States. Winners earn the right to display the prestigious International Property Awards logo in their marketing materials, while regional category winners automatically qualify for further competition to determine the world’s finest property companies.
“With so many impressive developments in Central and South America in recent years, being the only property selected from those regions to receive this award is a great honor,” says Blake Delatte, a founding partner of Axiom Development Group. “It’s an acknowledgement of the attention to detail that we have put into doing everything right and it provides great inspiration for our further developments in the Sierra Collection.”
Meridian House is the first home completed in the company’s Sierra Collection, which encompasses 1,250 acres exclusively reserved for single-family estates. Construction details include contemporary flat clay tiled roofs, vaulted ceilings, double-glazed windows, and sliding glass doors with UV protection. The estate’s contemporary decor features Italian Gres porcelain tile flooring, Spanish Dica bathroom and kitchen cabinetry, and Roca bathroom faucets; with a modern kitchen equipped with a Bosch stainless-steel refrigerator with a French door, a built-in microwave and oven, an induction cooktop, and a dishwasher
Bordered by rainforest preserves and overlooking the Pacific coastline, Meridian House was also designed for outdoor living and features a double infinity-edge pool with hand-set Gres porcelain tiles, an outdoor kitchen, a sitting area with gas-powered fire pit, and an entertainment center with high-definition TV and a surround sound home theater system.
