The tall cypress trees rising majestically over the stone wall facade of this property are the only clue that there might be something special going on behind those walls.  Enter through the front gate and your hunch will be confirmed, as you’re greeted by a lush interior courtyard that includes a fountain, vine covered arches, and mature plants.  Just off this courtyard is a cozy, tropical feel sitting area, perfect for an early morning coffee or afternoon iced tea.

Coming into the living room, you’ll immediately appreciate what I like to think of as “customization with heart.”  It’s not just that the owners paid careful attention to the details – they truly went the extra mile to create a home filled with warmth and magic.  The exquisite stenciling is just one example, followed by the rich texturization on the walls.  Overhead, the huge boveda with crown molding, cupola and iron chandelier add to the drama of the room.  Numerous nichos with spotlights provide dedicated space for sculptures and heirloom art.  The living room also features a double sided fireplace with custom grate, ventless gas logs and remote control.  From here you also have a lovely view to that verdant entry patio.

The dining room adjacent to the living room features uniquely shaped bovedas accented with crown molding and light wells.  Multiple windows and French doors afford a view to the covered back patio.

Next, step into the kitchen for a taste of traditional Mexico with the extensive use of colorful talavera tile and a speciality ceiling treatment of vega beams with more unique stenciling .  You’ll have plenty of storage, both enclosed and open, and enjoy nichos specially designed for cookbooks and cookware.

Even the hallway leading to the bedrooms is a treat, with its boveda, cupola and chandelier, cantera accents, crown molding and stenciled walls which echo the details of the wood built-in cabinet at the end of the passage.

The master bedroom maintains the same level of customization and features another grand boveda with chandelier, carved cantera fireplace and wonderful, faux finished walls.  Its French doors flow out into the back covered patio area, so you can wake up and take immediate advantage of the fresh morning air.   The walk-in closet is spacious and includes a built-in vanity.  The bathroom showcases timeless Mexican tile in vibrant blue hues.

The second and third bedrooms also enjoy similar finishes and attention to detail.  Both also have built-in closets, a fireplace, large windows, and one has a view to the front garden.  They share a stunning full bath with striking talavera tile and a large light well.

The back patio mentioned earlier extends from the living area to the bedrooms and includes a loggia portion as well as the back garden, which showcases beautiful landscaping as well as the care that has gone into maintaining these gorgeous plants.  It also has a generously sized fountain which makes for an even more tranquil setting.

This back garden also provides secure, direct access to an adjoining lot, which is already fully landscaped and includes fruit trees, cactuses, plants, its own septic system, an electric garage door, independent water meter, and a separate electric meter.  There’s plenty of space for pets or a casita.  This lot can be purchased along with the house if you so desire.

Finally, the roof top terrace is fully finished with water, electricity, and lighting, has a nice view and is great for entertaining large crowds.  

An additional convenience of this home is that it’s one floor living, so climbing or carrying things up and down staircases will never be an issue. 

The 390 m2 lot that sits adjacent to the property is also available for purchase.
