This one of a kind, beautiful, modern, eco-friendly, one-level house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac, 10 minutes from historic downtown and 25 minutes from Progreso beach. It is completely surrounded by a cozy garden with orchard trees (lime, orange, sour orange, zapote negro, mamey, guayas, fig tree, pomegranate, dragon fruit, and saramuyo).
The spacious home features vaulted ceilings in the dining-living area with a large modern kitchen. All 3 Bedrooms and the 2 Bathrooms were designed with vaulted ceilings as well for natural convection ventilation. All rooms and bathrooms have ceiling fans with the ones in the bedrooms and living area being remote controlled and there are A/C units in every room as well. Skylights offer natural illumination throughout and all living spaces have large windows with views to the exterior garden. All doors are made of cedar (termite free) and they and the showers are wheelchair accessible. There is a walk-through closet in the master bedroom and a loft-like storage space in second bathroom. If you have extra guests, there are hammock hooks in all rooms.
An overhung and insulated roof wraps all around the house to protect from rain without compromising ventilation and helping to keep a difference of up to 5°C (9°F) on hot summer days. All windows and main entryways are protected with artistic iron works and mosquito screens that can be completely open on the main entrance.
This modern home is fully off the grid with solar powered, autonomous electricity with power-grid connection-ready equipment. All light fixtures have LED bulbs and appliances are electric with the exception of the gas powered water heater and oven. The fridge and microwave oven have inverter technology (as do the AC units) for more efficient power consumption. There is even an optional composting basket in the sink garbage disposal. Water comes both from the city supply (2,200 liters in ground-isolated water tanks) and from a deep, private well (18 meters). There is a built-in irrigation system in the garden and an underground 3 chamber water treatment system. Also, the home has an elevated water tank (1,100 liters) with switch operated pressurized water lines.
There are 3 parking spaces with retractable awnings at the side of the home and an independent laundry room and battery/tool room sit at the back of the property. When you are away, there is an alarm system with the option for remote monitoring and the home is equipped with 3 internet accessible surveillance cameras.
