- $ 450000 Sale
Situated in an up-market cul-de-sac comprising of just a handful of quality homes, this villa comes to the market because the owner has decided that it's time to down-size. La Mulata 3 is a quiet neighbourhood of residences where peace and quiet is the order of the day.
Lot sizes in this particular area are all large and this property is no exception standing on around 3245 meters of ocean view real estate.
The main house is particularly grand, boasting a main living area with a 30 foot high ceiling, 3 large bedrooms (all en-suite, all with flat screen tv's, all with ocean views and modern inverter type a/c units) one on the ground floor and another two on the second floor, a huge kitchen (with a 40"+ TV) with granite worktops, a feature breakfast bar, a spacious living room with bar and 50" family TV, a dining area, a sweeping veranda with access to the pool deck and big family - friendly swimming pool, ocean views and a guest bathroom. All bedrooms have double glazed, tilt and turn upvc windows.
The second building comprises a big double garage with a workshop area, laundry area and bathroom (the entire ground floor can easily be converted into living accommodation) and a further large studio apartment on the second floor for guest accommodation comprising a living area, kitchenette, balcony with ocean views and a bathroom.
The property also includes a gardener's "casita" for a live-in gardener if required.
In the grounds are many fruit trees including several avocado trees, orange trees, lime trees, guanabana, mamon, noni, banana, custard apple and others.
Difficult to accurately measure, a close approximation is that there is 400m2 (over 4300 sqft) of covered space.
If required, back-up power is provided by an inverter in the first instance and then a fully automatic diesel-powered generator situated in a separate generator house meaning constant power 24 hours per day.
Water is sourced from a well that provides an abundant supply to seven homes in the area, costing 2000 pesos (less than $40 US) per month.
The property is perfect for running a business away from the office with a dedicated Claro land line with a package that includes free international calls and 5mbps broadband Wi-Fi, plus a 30mbps (that can be increased) fibre broadband service supplied by the local cable TV company. Starlink is now available in the Dominican Republic too offering blistering Wi-Fi speeds for around $50 per month.
The advantages of a property like this over a home in a gated community aren't always properly explained but are worth noting. At this particular home the live-in gardener / handyman remains at the property (but away from the villa) all the time during the week. The salary for similar staff is around $250 per month plus holiday pay and so forth, an amount that compares very favourably with fees for a similar property situated within a gated community and without the headaches associated with such properties (pages of rules and regulations and proximity to other properties as an obvious example). Look closely at the property and it reveals no bars on windows, no high fences, no razor wire, just a hedge and a low wall. The owner can confirm that despite owning the property for almost twenty years it has never been broken in to (something that would be very unlikely in other areas of the World), so if you are looking for a family home where you don't need to hide behind miles of barbed wire and window bars then this is the home for you. Before committing to the rules and regulations of a gated community, perhaps you should seriously consider a property like this as a better alternative and come and take a look for yourselves.
Recent upgrades include the roof being completely repainted.
