Step inside this lush beachside compound, sitting on just under a half-acre. The often deserted white sand beach of north Pelada is a short 2-minute walk from the property. The main house was recently extended and renovated; designed by Donald Loria of Prendas Loria and is supremely constructed with top-of-the-line finishes. The property boasts a total of four good sized bedrooms, two of which are 5-star rated rental studios. The studio in the main building can be privately accessed from outside but is also connected via a catwalk inside the main home which allows for a third large family bedroom if needed. The main master bedroom, also upstairs, has an ensuite bathroom and walk in closet which overlooks the pool and garden area, with a juliet balcony. The main entrance to the house has wall to wall sliding glass doors, which are located on a huge interior rancho with 8 person dining, and a pleasant indoor/outdoor lounge area, close to the pool, plus a space for yoga and stretching. Upon entry, an instant wow factor is the 32 foot double high ceilings in the chef’s kitchen with cream variegated quartz bar, for 4-6 people – the ultimate social gathering spot while food is prepared. This is unquestionably the heart of the home. Continuing through the outdoor living area is a large pool with additional spaces to chill and sunbathe. Surrounded by native plants and trees the deep pool feels private and peaceful. On the far side is a newly built rancho and upstairs studio with an outdoor kitchenette – a perfect guest rental suite or office, or simply the fourth bedroom, ideal for a teenager, or nanny.
Additionally, and it must be said a rarity so close to the beach – to the side of the property is an area the size of a small lot, on the flat, which could house additional rental units, a tennis court or vegetable/garden. This has its own back gate in addition.
The entire property is private, secure and walled in with a magnificent garden including giant palms upon entering the driveway.
Besides the beautiful decor and updates, the flexibility of this house is what makes it truly unique. With all the different layout options, this is perfect for a family with a live-in nanny/older children/tutor, or as a vacation/ income property.
