Swedish Beach House: Clean, Open, and Organic Beachfront Masterpiece

Long Description

This home was designed to bring the outdoors inside while also creating elegant comfort at the same time. The wide open spaces, high ceilings, and open views create an environment of decompression, exhales, and relaxation. Built by an Ecuadorian Craftsman and his wife, a Swedish World Banker, this home is an excellent integration of Swedish attention to detail with local materials, flavor, and craftsmanship. The entire structure is built using Ecuadorian hardwood, Guayacán, that the owners harvested from their own hacienda. All of the joinery was attended to by the owner himself as they oversaw the details of the construction. A genuine tile roof and skylights in the rooms make for an elegant and light-filled space. The bottom floor has a wide covered porch and impressive open concept great room with the kitchen flowing into the dining and living rooms, entryway, garden space in the back and the wide wooden stairway to the second floor. The kitchen is filled with imported whirlpool appliances, including a dishwasher, and finished with Brazilian granite and custom wood cabinetry. An integrated caretakers quarters is built into the back corner of the home and has its own private entrance and bath. The first floor also has a spacious yet cozy library and office space. A large double stairway connects the first and second floors and is a work of art in and of itself. The stairway leads to a wide hallway with views out to the simply astonishing balcony with its wide open spaces and incredible views. Four over-sized bedrooms share the second-floor with the wrap-around balcony. Two bedrooms have private baths while the other two share a Jack & Jill bath, each with its own entry to the bath. The Master bedroom is particularly spacious with a large walk-in closet, sitting area, and two large openings that lead out to the balcony. All of the bedrooms are open to the high ceilings and have excellent ventilation. The attraction of this unique location has resulted in newer custom built homes owned by a mixed community of American/Canadian retirees and local Ecuadorians. The beach stretches for many miles to the North and the nearby downtown of San Jacinto has an ATM and multiple restaurants. Outbuildings on the site include four storage rooms (which can easily be converted into b&b). Large garage area, outdoor cooking area including oven, and a plant nursery. The owners also just added a brand new pool and upgraded their outdoor kitchen!
