Property Description

This spacious 4-bedroom 4-bath house modeled after European & Colonial architectural schemes was custom designed and professionally built to North American standards in 2008 by a well established Civil Engineer.   The home is  largely surrounded by undeveloped natural pasture lands and is situated on a level 2,123 square meter fully surveyed and titled lot approximately 730 metres (2,200 feet) above sea level.  

The home comes standard with 9.5 foot ceiling heights plus a towering 27 foot vaulted ceiling in the formal living room complimented by an oversize hand-crafted stone fireplace.   There is a detached well-equipped two-story workshop with a small fully self-contained residential apartment attached. 

This home incorporates robust and layered security features both inside and outside including highly decorative custom built security doors on all exterior locations and the master suite.  There is also well-designed easy-access safe room located in the master suite and many other low-profile security features that makes this comfortable home a fortress.

The entire property is meticulously and fully landscaped with lush native flowering plants and mature fruit trees including bananas, plantains, mangos, avocados, pineapples, guandules shrubs and coconut trees.  There are many beautiful tall majestic pine trees, over 50 years old, with several other types of native trees providing ample shade throughout the property.

The low-maintenance landscape design surrounding this home can accommodate limitless family entertainment and outdoor activities.  

There is a skilfully-designed detached workshop built for the hobbyist in mind and is well-suited for all types of construction projects including yard and home maintenance tasks.  It comes fully equipped with a 240-volt electrical panel providing abundant power for welding equipment and more including a large 10’x 10’ electromechanical industrial roll up door. 

The shop is also outfitted with a ventilation system, plumbed with hot & cold water and fluorescent lighting throughout plus ample storage space and a small half bathroom with a laundry machine for cleaning work clothing. 

The apartment (which can provide year-round rental income) is a completely furnished residential living unit with approximately 500+ square feet of living space including one bed room, one full bath, kitchen and space saving laundry machines.   There is a small private patio with great views on the back side of the unit and a covered parking stall conveniently located in front. 

The property and house is supplied with crystal-clear high-pressure municipal water service backed up with 7000 gallons of fresh potable water reserves including 3 independent (fail safe) water pumping systems and redundant filtration.   The property is also equipped with multiple irrigation points throughout for ease of watering and maintenance.   

The double stainless steel kitchen sink incorporates a reverse osmosis filtration system for ultra purified drinking water.   Both the main house and rental apartment utilizes independent US standard 40 gallon 240v electric high efficiency water heaters for endless hot water.   The kitchen in the main house offers luxurious custom built granite counter tops with a low maintenance glass top electric stove and all stainless steel appliances. 

The house utilizes a cleverly designed duel panel electrical system separating the upper floor from the lower main level which independently provides 240 volts of ample electrical service to each panel.  Each panel is also strategically protected by modern high tech whole house surge protection systems including secondary in-line surge & voltage regulator equipment on most all major appliances.

This unique and relaxing private estate offers amazing views of the surrounding mountains providing fresh air and a warm stable climate all year around.  


The home will be sold semi -furnished and can be negotiated fully finished.  All of the updated kitchen appliances including laundry machines and Jacuzzi that is designed to accommodate up to 4 individuals will remain with the house.  The powerful back-up generator which can produce 17,500 watts of continuous power will also go with the house.  It has less than 30 total operating hours and was professionally installed and can provide abundant electricity to the entire property.  The workshop also possesses a custom-built flammable & chemical storage vault safely located outside of the workshop area that houses a private 55-gallon bulk storage tank & fueling station for diesel automobiles.  The newly purchased twin blade grass cutting tractor (with less than 50 hours of operating use) including various lawn maintenance equipment can also be negotiated in the transfer of the home.
