Casa Vesuviana sits back from the road with a front terrace and flowering front garden. This colonial has been thoughtfully restored with a touch of Italy by the Italian owner. Inside the distinctive doors you will find pasta tile floors, high-beamed ceilings. skylights and abundant windows provide natural light throughout the home.
In the main house you will find the foyer, kitchen, living and dining areas and two bedrooms. The first bedroom is currently used as a yoga room/studio but has built in storage shelving and a full guest bath adjacent to it. The master bedroom is next and has an ensuite bathroom as well as opening onto the large screened terrace. Not only does this terrace create the perfect place for protected dining or entertaining under the stars, but it also helps provide additional airflow for the home. The kitchen also opens onto this terrace and features plenty of custom cabinetry. As pointed to by the prominent wall phrase which reads “aqui se cocina con amor y se come con ganas” (Here people cook with love and eat with pleasure) the current owner loves to cook, so the kitchen has been created to serve a chef well and features high end appliances as well as abundant space and natural light.
Separate from the main house is a Casita which contains a bedroom and bath plus its own kitchen, making it a great space for guests, family or an income producing rental unit. The casita and backyard can even be accessed from the front of the house, allowing your guests or renters their own sense of privacy and independence. A dedicated laundry bodega is also centrally located here. The landscaped backyard and courtyard still retain plenty of space to add a large pool and garden or whatever else you may desire. There is still the old rainwater cistern in use which could be renovated as a bodega or bar but also has an under-the-patio-flooring irrigation pipe set-up that goes all the way to the back garden…This may prove appealing to the keen gardener.
Casa Vesuviana has been priced to sell, and as a result, should not be available for long. Appliances included with the sale are the ones in the main kitchen as well as the washing machine. Don’t miss your chance to consider it for your own Centro retreat.
