As an added bonus, there is a dumbwaiter which is very convenient for moving groceries upstairs and laundry downstairs! Access to the enclosed garage is also through this area.
Built to last! The home was designed, engineered and built to USA standards by the owner, a custom home builder from the United States. Attention to detail and high quality materials were used at every turn, and an enormous amount of steel and concrete was used in the construction. Vertical half-inch steel rebar on 3 foot centers with horizontal concrete beams 4 feet on center and all the block on the first floor filled with concrete and on the second floor every other block filled with concrete all done for extra rigidity and strength. All the doors in the house are hand carved by a local artist with unique designs inspired by the sea of Cortez including custom pieces of hand carved furniture as well such as mahogany coffee table with a Sea life scene, custom mahogany bed frame with Sea life scene, Cala lily mirror frame in powder room.
The garage is huge with two doors; one side of the garage is 50′ deep x 14′ wide and the other is 24′ deep x 14′ wide. Each door is 14′ wide by 12′ tall and is mechanized and insulated. This garage provides plenty of great secure storage for all the toys; a boat, car, razor, quads, paddle boards and kayaks.
Gorgeous Views and Breezes from every part of this one of a kind home! Lots of privacy with many peaceful spots to relax among mature tropical trees and shrubs in the garden while watching the many birds come in and drink from the fountain. Ceramic tiled covered patios with natural stone pillars and arches surround the house. Enjoy the sunrise over the Sea from the expansive terrace off of the open kitchen living and dining room. Make your way up the interior staircase to the third floor terrace and be rewarded with unparalleled views of the sea and the islands and an additional talavera tiled bar area. Watch the beautiful sunset over the Sierra la Giganta Mountains every evening from the balcony off of each of the bedrooms.
