A TROPICAL HARDWOOD HOME ON ISLA CRISTOBAL, BOCAS DEL TORO
Worth more than its weight in exotic hardwoods, this 3 story tropical hardwood home is an island treasure chest waiting to be discovered. The 3 bedroom/ 2 bathroom home is only 3.5 nautical miles from Bocas Town, where you’ll find all the conveniences of a Caribbean tourist town. Specialty grocery stores, restaurants and bars, as well as hardware shops and pharmacies. Something that stands out about this property is it’s 1000 m2 water concession, allowing future owners the option to build out over the water.
Built entirely of Nispero, this colossal home sits on a seismic foundation with out-rigger piers. You can’t get more solid than this. Building with local hardwoods is a luxury of the past, as the new Panamanian government has put a moratorium on the harvesting of such wood, which is incredibly durable and resistant to the climate and pests of the regions where it is grown.
With a wrap around veranda, there is no shortage of outdoor space with ocean views, divided among the 3 floors.
Tile and Granite floors are throughout the home, with laurel wall paneling and cabinets. The built in storage closets are made of Cedar in the kitchen and bed-room.
The ground floor has been used as storage but would be easily transformed into a garden suite.
Over 750,000$ was put invested into the creation of this home.
Behind the 3 roll up doors in the back yard is where the magic happens, where every board of the home was cut and milled, this is a work shop that inspires serious projects! The 20 x 40 foot shop comes wired for both 220 V and 110 v so your creations wont be hampered by off-grid living.
