This jungle house on land is a mix of modern design meets ecological living. It is situated on two estate-sized lots of 4.75 acres, with the main house and caretaker’s casita, on a riverfront property. Birds and monkeys are your wake-up call and grazing horses are your neighbors. A superb setting featuring old-growth trees, areas for pasture, a shaded riverbed, and endless hiking trails.
The beautiful two-bedroom home features thoughtful details and a custom design. The house has a sleeping loft and not one but two roof-level decks where you can look out and enjoy nature. The property is supplied by a private well and a chemical-free swimming pool. Throw open the windows and doors, and enjoy indoor/outdoor living — the line between person and nature is blissfully blurred. Even on the hottest days, one can be cooled by a breeze beneath the canopy of trees, or by a dip in the natural pool. With two lots there is room to add another house and expand the estate. There is even room for your own food forest.
An attractive caretaker’s quarter with a skilled groundskeeper will help keep everything on this spacious property in order.
