For Sale $875,000 - Villa
Designed and built by a respected architect inspired on award-winning international homes, this 3+ level home stands out from all others. Its 9 bedrooms and 9 bathrooms are set on three floors and a basement floor level, taken from a gracefully sloping angle in the land that allowed a Spanish patio with green lawns.
An elegant gazebo with Doric columns stands tall before the entrance, which shows antique styled, hand forged iron railings leading up to a pair of rustic colonial-era style oak doors with original bronze lion head door knockers, from an XVIII century monastery in Spain. Each window of the house has a rustic wood beam on its top, and the interior stair railings are beautifully hand worked.
A small foyer shows colonial styled wood and leather furniture, and after it a living room displays a set of sofas and table built from oxen yokes taken from old sugar mills in the DR, uniquely built for this house. A spacious living room gives way to the kitchen, also in vintage style.
The second level of the house is still on the works, a seemingly endless project to make this Villa Española a cover for the Architectural Digest. Wooden beams made of original sugar cane mill weights support the balcony roofing; and old, rustic iron spikes from and old church in Europe add to its colonial style.
The owner has said he will deliver the house fully finished in 2 months and will optionally add a swimming pool either in the Spanish patio or in the garden area. The third level is the room with the ocean views, for family gatherings or a private office/den. It is the highest room in the house, also with impressive mountain views.
The basement floor is like a full house below that includes a living room, kitchen, bedrooms and laundry area. A covered terrace includes the Spanish patio and a smaller room with a bathroom. Bronze details on floorings and bathrooms complement a rich set of features that make this a true connoisseur’s retreat. Getting a walk through the entire property will reveal a whole lot more to discover, since it is a very richly detailed home and a true piece of fine art. The covered area is 635m²= 6835.083ft² and the land size is 1035m²= 11140.65ft²
