Hello on a very wet and rainy Friday morning in Puerto Morelos!
You guys! It’s a tropical downpour! And we are getting ready to head out for showings…. this should be interesting! The only upside is the chance to wear my cute rainboots.
But here’s some good news — WE HAVE A GREAT NEW LISTING IN PUNTA VISTA FOR $186,000 USD.
So excited about this one! Gorgeous new build on a corner. Beautiful open floor plan design. Kitchen to die for (in other words, not your typical old time Mexican kitchen with no counter or cabinet space) with granite counters, a wonderful island with sink and plenty of cabinet space + a cool lighted curio cabinet!
The first floor has the living area, office, half bath, dining and kitchen area – and that all opens out onto a cute patio with seating, a great dipping pool, outdoor sink and washer/dryer hookup.
The second floor has three bedrooms – two smaller guest bedrooms that share a full bath, and a master with en suite bath, walk-in closet and a wall of sliding glass doors for plenty of sunshine and breezes!
Punta Vista is a gated community just north of the entrance to the seaside portion of Puerto Morelos. It’s a 5-7 minute drive to the beach, at most. It’s a gorgeous community though. Great use of open space, beautiful park with a cenote, stream, two huge pools and a palapa covered gathering area with a bar, playground equipment, and walking trails. All utilities are buried and they have their own wastewater treatment plant (yay! no septic systems!) It’s very secure with only one access point, secured entry and 24 hour patrols.
Three Things We LOVE about this house:
- Intelligent design. While this should be a given when building a house, it is not always the case. This house actually makes sense in terms of space planning. We love how open it is – when you’re in the kitchen you can still interact with people out on the patio, in the pool, in the living area…. There’s easy access around the perimeter of the house for maintenance and repair, even a built in ladder for roof access! And they left the stairwell open so that you can easily go up one more level – either for a roof deck or another level of living space and then a roof deck on top of that! (Roof decks are all the rage here…)
- SO. MUCH. LIGHT. Seriously. Windows everywhere! The corner lot helps, but really nice use of windows to bring in light and air. It’s a delightful space.
- The kitchen. We are not great cooks, but we can appreciate a great kitchen! It looks amazing and is very functional. There’s even a water filter on the sink so you can drink and cook with that water.
Here are some pictures, and of course you can see lots more on the actual listing – RAR404 – on the website!
