A DESIGNER HOME IN A BIRDER’S PARADISE
A Designer Home with creative wisdom visible in it’s architecture. The property has breathtaking views and is steps from Panama’s Natural Gem – Canyon Macho de Monte, a Birder’s Paradise, the canyon is highly praised for its incredible winged diversity, attracting Ornithologists from all over the globe.
On 2.75 Hectares of Black Volcanic soil sits a 1 of kind home, creatively designed with views in every room. The house has been thoughtfully positioned to frame views of the Macho de Monte Canyon cascading down the face of the mighty Volcan Baru, this North facing orientation keeps the home insulated from the daily migration of the sun, while allowing plenty of natural light.
The half of the land surrounding the home has been beautifully landscaped with a large selection of designer plants, fruit-baring orchards and beautifully sculpted Native trees. An all natural security measure is in place, thanks to the steep wooded drop surrounding the property, and a thickly forested stream that divides the property in 2. Paraiso is a very safe neighborhood and farming community.
The second half of the land is pasture, waiting to be developed, sold separately or farmed. The base price of land in Paraiso is 10$ USD per square meter.
In recent years the Province’s tourism industry has been boosted by the Federal Government, and Panama offers many incentives for activity in the sector. This property is steps from the breathtaking canyon Macho de Monte, which is now recognized as a popular tourist stop in Chiriqui. The greatest attraction for tourism remains the incredible variety of Birds who frequent the Canyon, to mate and nest, drawing Birder’s from all over the world to book the guest suite.
Currently owned and decorated by a Master Carpenter and a Designer, the new buyer will be delighted to find custom cabinetry, shelving, furniture and stairs though out the home. The artistic craftsmanship found in this house truly renders the home priceless and a unique purchase.
The Great Room has floor to ceiling windows, and is divided in two seating areas, one with a gas fire center piece, and the other, surrounding a built in entertainment center. The open Kitchen offers views right through the living space to the far reaching canyon vista.
Along a broad hallway is a large Room for washer, dryer and storage, an office, a door to the front yard, and finally the Master Bedroom. The room opens to a covered patio with a Hot tub and garden views. Inside there is a walk in closet, a large ensuite bathroom with double sinks, a vanity and sitting space, and a huge shower with floor to ceiling windows. There is also a loft accessible from the Master Bedroom currently used as a Yoga Studio.
On the other side of the home there is a room designated as the entertainment center, with bathroom. Beyond this, and also accessible from the outside of the building, is a complete apartment, rented to guests.
The ground floor of the Apartment has the bedroom and bathroom, and floor to ceiling windows opening onto a Patio. A custom spiral staircase takes guests upstairs to a full kitchen, a second bathroom with designer shower, an in suite washer and dryer, a pull out couch for extra visitors and a Panoramic Veranda facing the Volcan Baru.
Outbuildings on the property include a plumbed greenhouse and potting station, a compost, a large Bodega and parking station for the tractor mower, and a massive wood working shop.
