Immediately in front of you as you enter the villa is a large indoor dining area with enough seating for any family occasion, while to the right is a casual seating area.
An internal corridor gives access to the master bedroom, a guest bathroom with full bath, a home office, a family entertainment room, and a small courtyard.

Beyond the master bedroom is the large and spacious family entertainment room with patio doors that lead to a terrace with views over the gardens and down towards the fish-pool.
The courtyard gives access to two guest bedrooms both with plenty of wardrobe space, feature ceilings and their own en-suite bathrooms. The courtyard then leads back to the pool deck and terrace (which has an outdoor dining table and casual seating area).
The charming staircase leads past two modern stained-glass windows and on to the second floor. To the left, the library area with seating and chaise longue, and access to the sun terrace while to the right is a large guest bedroom with views across the gardens, lots of storage space and a bathroom with shower.

To the side of the main house is the double garage with plenty of storage space, another space that could be used as a workshop that is currently being used as an additional laundry area, and a bathroom with shower that is used by staff. Behind the garage is the pump room where the pool pumps (one is solar) and filter system are installed. This is also where the water pump for the property along with the softener and filter systems are kept. Adjacent to the pump room is a small walled area for drying laundry.
To the back of the villa, underneath the family room is a large storage area and a separate gardener’s room.
The swimming pool is tiled and about eleven meters in length making it ideal for exercise. It includes easy access from the side by a shallow staircase with a stainless-steel handrail.
In all, there are 8221 square meters of grounds that are mostly laid to lawn with a variety of fruit trees and established, planted pathways that lead to the beautiful fish-pool. The pool is stocked with small fish and aquatic plants including water hyacinth that when in season produce beautiful violet flowers. The pool features two waterfalls, which aerate the water, a small fountain, and an enchanting wooden bridge where one can stand and watch the aquatic life busying itself.
Haciendas el Choco is a highly regarded gated community that offers peace-and-quiet as well as peace-of-mind. The community is situated in the hills approximately four miles from the centre of town. The water supply comes from wells located on the HEC development itself. Internet service, cable TV and twenty-four hour power is available to owners should they require it, (reduced price Starlink is also available in the Dominican Republic), and a tennis court is located next to the administration’s office. The community also offers stabling for those with a love of horses (subject to rental fees and availability), and there is a planned equestrian centre (further details on request). All owners in Haciendas el Choco are allowed to construct stabling for their own horses on their own land if they wish.
