Situated in an up-market cul-de-sac comprising of just a handful of quality homes, this villa comes to the market because the owner has decided that it’s time to down-size. La Mulata 3 is a quiet neighbourhood of residences where peace and quiet is the order of the day.
Lot sizes in this particular area are all large and this property is no exception standing on around 3000 meters of ocean view real estate. The main house is particularly grand boasting a main living area with a 30 foot high ceiling. The property comprises 3 large bedrooms (all en-suite, all with flat screen tv’s, all with ocean views and modern inverter type a/c units) one on the ground floor and another two on the second floor, a huge kitchen (with a 40″+ TV) with granite worktops, a feature breakfast bar, a spacious living room with bar and 50″ family TV, a sweeping veranda with access to the pool deck and big family – friendly swimming pool, ocean views and a guest bathroom.
The second building comprises a double garage with a workshop area, laundry area and bathroom (the entire ground floor can easily be converted into living accommodation) and a further big studio apartment on the second floor for guest accommodation comprising a big living area, kitchenette, balcony with ocean views and bathroom.
The property also includes a gardeners “casita” for a live-in gardener.
In the grounds are many fruit trees including several avocado trees, orange trees, lime trees, guanabana, mamon, noni, banana, custard apple and others.
Impossible to accurately measure, an approximation would be that there is close to 500m2 of covered space.
The advantages of a property like this over a home in a gated community aren’t always properly explained but are worth noting. At this particular home the live-in gardener / handyman also doubles as evening security. The salary for similar staff is around $250 per month plus holiday pay on so forth, an amount that compares very favourably with fees for a similar property situated within a gated community and without the headaches associated with such properties ( pages of rules and regulations and proximity to other properties as an obvious example). Look closely at the property and it reveals no bars on windows, no high fences, no razor wire, just a hedge and a low wall. The owner can confirm that despite owning the property for almost twenty years it has never been broken in to (something that would be very unlikely in other areas of the World), so if you are looking for a family home where you don’t need to hide behind miles of barbed wire and window bars then this is the home for you. Consequently, before committing to the rules and regulations of a gated community, perhaps you should seriously consider properties like this as a genuine alternative.
