Welcome to this incredible house, recently built, and located in a beautiful up-scale gated community minutes away from the charming expat city of Atenas.
There is so much to say about this astonishing mansion.
As they say, safety first. This beautiful house was built to withstand earthquakes of up to 9.0 on the Richter scale, higher than most buildings built in California!
You are entering this estate via a community gate followed by a second gate at the property’s entrance. The property is entirely fenced, either by an 8 feet fence, or an 8 plus feet concrete wall.
A large cobblestone drive way brings you to a carport, the front door and garage, which has an electric rolling door. The garage has lots of storage space.
The main living areas are the open kitchen-living-dining area inside plus a huge terrace.
The kitchen is the ideal place for cooks and people who love food and company. It has a large cooking island with quartz countertops and build-in buffet, also made of quartz. The cabinets and pantries have drawers that can be pulled out totally, and pull back automatically for easy closing. It has one large fridge as well as one whole freezer. A regular convention oven, also with the option for baking, has been installed. All the equipment is Frigidaire Professional. You will also find a pot filler. A large pantry completes the kitchen area.
The state-of-the-art plumbing used throughout the house was imported from the US with brass interior workings.
Next to the kitchen area you will find the inside living area with large TV. The dining area is located in a separate corner.
The two master bedrooms, each with their own huge bathrooms, are situated on either side of the house, guarantying maximum privacy. The closets in both bedrooms have louvered doors for optimum ventilation.
The bathroom of the bedroom closest to the kitchen has a beautiful marble Roman tub which is a reproduction of Villa Romana del Casale, Italy.
On the other side of the house the 2nd bedroom with private bathroom is located. This 2nd bathroom was made according to ADA (American Disability Act). It is wheelchair accessible, has a roll-in shower which has 4 wall jets, an overhead large rain shower head, a handheld shower head and a floor of river stone for excellent grip.
A huge terrace (148 m2/1,590 square feet), which forms almost half of the house, allows you to enjoy the ideal outside living. Come and enjoy the “best climate of the world”, for which the Atenas area is known for. I am sure you are already imagining a wonderful diner here, enjoying the amazing sun-sets and inviting family and friends for a great party.
From the terrace one has breath-taking views of the Pacific Ocean as well as the surrounding mountains.
The large laundry room is also equipped with a full freezer, a sink and an ice-maker.

All lights inside and outside are LED.

Drains were built into the floors of both bathrooms as well as the laundry room.
Throughout the house, garage and pool deck one finds Italian porcelain tiles. Spanish tile was used behind the TV as well as for the dog wash/outdoor shower near the pool area.
For good water supply, a water tank with water pressure regulator, to guarantee that the water coming into the house, has a constant pressure, has been installed. A pressure pump guarantees an increasing pressure throughout the house. The water source is gravity fed spring water that is free of all chemical additives.
A large pool-pump room completes the house.
The garden is a unique combination of what nature has to offer.
Next to the infinity pool you will find the herb bed with adjacent the vegetable garden. Throughout the garden many varieties of flowering plants have been placed.
