BEACH HOUSE IN JOSE IGNACIO
This property is just a few minutes walk from the center of the village and only 50 m from the sea. Enjoys the most beautiful sunset views on the sea and the beach is one of the prettiest on the coast, La Mansa.
The project was started from scratch, we searched for the land and applied for all the building permissions for a 4 bedroom house with separate guesthouse. 150 m2 house plus 24 m2 guest house.
The property is surrounded by decking and some areas of grass, under the porch wooden sofa beds were commissioned and covered in water proof material to be left outdoors most of the year.
The barbecue and porches are covered in old picket fences! they were found at a reclaim compound, there were thousands of them and we got to choose the ones in best condition for the job,with them they porches give a lovely light. The bbq has a long table with 2 benches that comfortably sit about 12.
The swimming pool is 3 x 8m, made entirely of polished cement.
Also in painted bricks and thatched roof, this construction is typical of the area, the outdoor shower – on the right – is the perfect addition as you walk in from the beach.
Mostly open plan, the main floor houses the kitchen, laundry area, guest bedroom and bathroom, 2 separate sitting areas and dining table that sits 10.
Upstairs a further 3 bedrooms, one en suite, and the other 2 share a bathroom, theres a landing and sitting area, they all access the front terrace that looks onto the sunset.
In my next post I will write about the building process with more detail! I hope you like the house, which has been one of my favourites, although long distance, projects!
