On The Market: Casa Mariposas

In Live, Puerto Vallarta by Suzanne Koch

This private country compound consists of a main home with 2 bedrooms and den 2.5 baths, a one-bedroom one-bath guesthouse and a caretaker’s quarters which is a separate one-bedroom home (which could be converted to three bedrooms). The estate consists of more than 6,000 square meters of land planted with avocado and fruit trees, offering privacy and tranquility. The home is reached by a semi-private cobblestone road with a gate front entry to the property, which is fully fenced. Sufficient open space exists for development of additional casitas, if desired.

The main home is newly constructed and is a masterpiece of hand-laid stone and wood-beam architectural styling. Like an ad campaign from Restoration Hardware, the interior is decorated and designed for comfort and entertaining. The main living-dining-kitchen area is entirely open with exposed beam work and features two-story vaulted ceilings, creating a lodge-type atmosphere with a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace. Both bedrooms also enjoy stone fireplaces for warmth and décor. The main kitchen has new, professional-grade stainless steel appliances juxtaposed with beautiful hand-painted tilework and natural parota cabinetry and countertops. Doors and windows throughout the home, which all have screens, are custom-designed to offer natural air and light circulation as well as security. The entire home opens to a large covered porch that spans the south side of the home, offering beautiful views of the grounds and foliage.

This stunning home was built for enjoyment and entertaining. The outdoor kitchen and adjoining patio provide the ideal venue for hosting friends and family. A covered wet-bar and BBQ area with abundant work surfaces is ideal for the outdoor chef. There is also a covered sitting area with its own stone-covered fireplace for those chilly evenings to sip a hot toddy.

Systems in the house include new plumbing and on-demand hot water, generator, a full laundry-storage room with stacked washer-dryer and abundant storage rooms and spaces throughout the property. Satellite TV (U.S.) with 3 meter parabolic, telephone with wireless internet throughout the main home and two-car covered parking. The property is connected to city water and sewer. This is an ideal summer retreat, retirement home or potential boutique hotel investment opportunity, just a 10 minute walk to San Sebastian town center and 45 minutes from Puerto Vallarta.
