725 sq. ft. interior living space
742 sq. ft. outdoor living with patios, balcony and garden space
117 sq. mtrs. Federal Zone Concession on estuary
Inviting front entry with a colorful talavera tile “beach shower” and lush garden area. Open lower level that flows from double doors into a spacious patio. Open-concept kitchen area with counter (perota wood throughout), pantry, and half-bath with storage, complete the first level. A sunshade (awning) covers the back patio during the season, which would be included in the sale. This property comes with a Federal Zone concession that extends from the back patio wall to the river. The open Federal Zone Concession ensures privacy and cool flow-through breezes.
Upstairs is the full bathroom, a large “convertible” bedroom suite, and covered front and rear balcony and patio areas. The large suite can easily be transformed into two separate bedrooms (the original design) since both doorways are still in place and the partition wall need not be load-bearing.
Spiral staircase from the front balcony goes to the roof. Expansion is possible with the addition of a third floor bedroom complete with bathroom. Plans have been made for a third floor guest room and bath with peek-a-boo views of the ocean. When the back patio was remodeled, the foundation for a stairway going up was put in place.
Plumbing, water, and electric have all been replaced/upgraded: New 100 amp electrical service—including 220-volt service for future air conditioning. New: drain system, 850-gallon water cistern, pump, tenaco, water heater and plumbing pipes. Water is currently gravity fed, but plumbing is configured to quickly and easily add a jet pump if a high-pressure system is desired. Hot and cold water pipes have been stubbed off on the back patio (for an outdoor sink) and on the second floor balcony for a washing machine (an electrical outlet is also there). City water comes regularly. The roof was recoated last year with commercial-grade fabric.
Turn Key: Titled with an assumable bank trust. Price includes appliances, king bed, twin bed, and all furnishings. Ready for you to move in.
