Thoughtful design, deliberate use of eco-friendly and local building materials and an appreciation for indoor/outdoor living echo throughout this beautiful custom built home!
This beautiful home delights from the minute you arrive. From the automatically lit entry path, to the stunning wood front door, and through to the surprisingly open and spacious interior, you know this isn’t just another thrown-together house. The design is minimal and the effect is magic. Through the front door you find a wide open living/dining/kitchen area framed by high ceilings, polished concrete walls and floor to ceiling glass sliders offering a glimpse of the tropical yard beyond.
The living area is spacious and comfortable with natural light, a large, comfy sectional sofa (with fabric perfect for our tropical climate) and a large wall just waiting for your big screen TV (or fabulous art piece?). The kitchen is to-die-for with custom cabinetry, a handy kitchen island with built in stovetop and oven and plenty of cabinet and counter space. Imagine gathering with your friends around the gorgeous Tzalam wood dining table surrounded by floor to ceiling glass sliders. This main living area also features a full bath, and a laundry room with a utility sink, a washer and a dryer hook up.
The Tzalam wood stairway is a piece of art in and of itself. Upstairs you’ll find two guest rooms, each with their own en suite bathroom, featuring skylights over the showers. These sunny rooms will easily accommodate a queen or king size bed and there is space for a closet, but you’ll need to build that in yourself. Down the hall (towards the front of the home) you’ll find the master suite. Light and airy with tons of natural light, this is the tropical sanctuary you’ve been dreaming of. A built in closet and en suite bathroom, with a skylight over the shower finish off the space.
Up one more level and you’re in heaven. A beautiful roof deck awaits, with an outdoor living area, sink and bbq grill, half bath and a gorgeous pool. The design maximizes privacy and views — while floating in your pool you’ll be treated to the most amazing view over the mangrove to towards the Caribbean. The pool is surrounded by gorgeous all natural decking – not wood and not Trex, but a sturdy composite of tropical materials guaranteed to be virtually maintenance free.
Designed and built for an electrical engineer, you’ll find some upgrades that you don’t normally see in construction here. The entry path has a pressure sensor – step on it and your pathway to the front door is lit up, a motion sensor turns on the interior stairway lights, the whole house is wired and ready to receive your electronics and, this is exciting, your whole house speaker system.
This home is located in the Puntarena gated community, just south of the main seaside village of Puerto Morelos. The Puntarena community is fully gated and secure, with access from Highway 307 and a back access via the Pescadores neighborhood, which leads directly to the road to the beach. It’s a quick 5 minute drive to the Caribbean, 10 minute bike ride or 15-20 minute walk! The neighborhood has several parks and one community pool, with another one in the works. It also features it’s own wastewater treatment plant (no septic systems here) and high speed fiber optic internet is being installed now.
Known as the hidden jewel of the Mayan Riviera, Puerto Morelos delights with its wide, white beaches, vibrant town center, lively restaurant scene, charming shops and local artisan markets. While it is just 20 minutes south of the Cancun International Airport and approximately 25 minutes north of Playa del Carmen, the vibe in Puerto Morelos is a million miles away from these tourist towns. Life is slower here, and that’s the way we like it.
