Sold $875,000 - House, Villa
19th Century Style Mansion Sale in Puerto Plata. The architectural extravaganza of 19th Century Cubans is plastered in this unique mansion, which evokes the riches of affluent citizens during Cuba’s splendor years before it embraced the revolution of 1959. Designed by a Cuban citizen, the property’s colorful exterior bring contrast to more formal interiors that include marble floorings and elaborate wood, wrought iron doors and stair railings below beautiful crown moldings framing elegant ceiling lamps.
5 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms of fine oversized luxury can be a delightful way to enjoy great moments in life with family and friends. The house facade makes it an immediate landmark, bringing forward the tropical colors of little Havana in Miami, among tall pillars with ionic capitals and very elaborate details.
4 grand balconies, two for the left and right master suites, one for the second level lounge and the one in the roof top terrace create a harmonious quartet. A carport for two cars and extra parking space in the front brings us back to reality, this is a home, not a boutique hotel in Puerto Plata.
Once through the tall and elaborate mahogany doors at the house entrance, a set of marble stairs are flanked by two large pillars, and on its left side a gorgeous and spacious living room is decorated with white sofas and two Louis XV original style armchairs in opaque cream color with patina. A tea and reading table set on a family room to the right matches fine transparent curtains that look like made of a haute couture fabric.
Below in the first floor and right past the staircase, a supersized living room is being used as the media room for family gatherings, featuring fine leather sofas. An oversized visitor’s bathroom feels wide and comfortable. All the 4 bedrooms in this house are large suites with private bathrooms and walk in closets. At the second floor, the stairs take a left and right turn, with an overhead glass eye that lets natural light in during the day, and acts like a star gazing window at night.
A spacious lounge area with brown leather furniture precedes a large terrace with double pillars that will support a pergola with vines when finished. From here, the vistas of the swimming pool and large patio are impressive. As if not enough, entering the master suite shows the visitor a foyer with a very impressive Roman Jacuzzi, built for an emperor. This property may resemble a villa more than a house.
Turn left and there’s a bigger than normal closet room with his & hers walk in areas, and a spacious bathroom with a stepped Jacuzzi and a lovely touch of retro in design: glass blocks in the shower wall. Twin sinks and signature WC in white match a classic ornate arch in the threshold. The biggest suite in the house is the master suite at right, which is a very big room with private balcony.
The swimming pool area has concrete and tile tables and seats of vintage style, and the pool itself has a Jacuzzi attached to it. Ever present tropical palms welcomes the viewer to splash and relax. The roof of this majestic residence include a Gazebo and various terraces, one with splendid ocean views of the Atlantic. This is a culturally rich house that deserves a very special kind of owner. The covered area is 8,880 sq. ft. and the land is 10,064 sq. ft. in size.
