This is one of the most unique homes in the whole archipelago. The first thought when arriving at this house is that of a European country cottage with white wash walls, thatched awnings and stone decorative work around both the exterior and interior of the house. The home is on a hill looking over the jungle canopy with a variety of fruit trees and lush inviting gardens around the house.
Once entering this house you are in an approx. 1000 sq ft house on an artistic adventure. Much of the wood used in the house on the walls, beams and some ceilings are local woods of Nespero and Alamendro. Some are naturally distressed, not artificially antiqued. On the first floor are 2 bedrooms and a large complete bath with an open air shower and handmade bathtub. You can use the master bedroom deck to walk down to an outdoor shower. The owners’ expertise is “specialized concrete design and hyper finishes” which is apparent throughout the house.
The kitchen and living room on the second floor are open air and give a gorgeous view. You feel as if you are floating on top of the jungle floor with beautiful views of the valley and mountains around. The floors, some walls, all counters and kitchen sink are the owners polished concrete designs. There is a storage pantry and island bench for your convenience. The sofa and kitchen cabinets were designed to blend in with the locally sourced woods. This floor also has a separate room for laundry and an office or 3rd bedroom.
The house has 4 Trojan Solar batteries, 4 solar panels of 290 watts each, low consumption ceiling fans in each room, and an inverter refrigerator. There is a generator which has never been needed and 2 -1000 gallon water storage tanks. Internet is available and is the only monthly bill you have when living off the grid.
This Titled property of 2992.49m2 (almost 3/4 acres) is five minutes to the very popular Bluff Beach area that is the new B and B, restaurant and single family home area in Bocas. There is a private driveway to the home hence you do not have traffic in front of your home and can barely see the roof of the nearest house. We strongly suggest you come and see this furnished home if you like Bluff Beach, jungle, your own space and dramatic simplicity at a fantastic price.
