Property ID : BBOYZ-233 The Caribbean Dacha
SOLD $1,250,000 - RESIDENTIAL
The Dacha sits on what is considered to be one of the most coveted building sites on the island by all who know Vieques. A British Expat created an Aerie for Tropical Entertaining in Puerto Rico.
The owner lovingly designed and built this home in Puerto Rico and named it, in memory of his time in Russia, “The Dacha”, or country house. The owners hired Harvard-educated architect Tom Marvel to create a masterpiece for this enchanting cliff side location and the result is nothing short of masterful!
The “Caribbean Dacha” is entered through a welcoming and tropical courtyard with Puerto Rican pavers and a Mexican fountain that are both refreshing and relaxing. This dreamy beach home is a beautiful, spacious, well constructed, newer homeperched on a cliff above the sea. On this magnificent point of land facing North to Culebra and Puerto Rico you get sweeping ocean views above the breaking waves. You also have access to your own private beach where you will find some of the island’s best snorkeling just steps from the front door.
The Dacha is a six bedroom, five bathroom house that is perfectly suited for your family and friends to be bathed in luxury while experiencing the utmost of privacy. This gracious home is ideal for entertaining with its large central living room opening to wrap around covered terraces. This is a retreat that could handle a party of 200 plus or simply act as a peaceful safe haven for the discerning couple.
The second level of the home is the private guest area and the very spacious master suite offers views and accommodations suitable for royalty. The Master bath includes the ever favorite outdoor shower room and a private balcony for listening to the waves morning and night. There are two other large guest bedrooms (each with private balcony) in the main house, and two guest bedrooms in the adjacent casita connected by a bathroom (also with outdoor shower) which were designed especially for children to give them a private space.
You will feel like a rock star while dining alfresco on a magnificent built-in concrete table and under the wraparound terrace, beside the “horizon-less” pool. There is the perfect kitchen to cook in yourself with friends and family, or if you like, have one of the island’s personal chefs come to your home and prepare the latest Caribbean feast.
This home is a tropical delight and is furnished with carefully selected Antique Indian and Indonesian Mahogany Furniture pieces throughout. The home also features some lovely little surprises like a cigar smoking tower and balcony one flight above the house, as well as a stairway to the natural pool in the rocks one flight below the house.
