Stunning Peninsula Property in Aguacate, Bocas del Toro, Panama
Located in one of the most beautiful and peaceful areas of Bocas Del Toro, this 8.3 hectare (20.5 acres) property consists of a gorgeous 2 bedroom custom built home, a second 2 bedroom cottage, 2 bodegas, a large rancho, and even a nice thatch roofed house for your chickens!
The cleared portion, approximately 3 hectares, was formerly pastureland. It slopes up from the near 1/4 mile waterfront and then flattens out, providing a large and easily build-able area with extensive views towards the south and around to the northwest. You will find two kinds of coconuts, bananas, plantains, passion fruit, Seville oranges, papaya, mangoes, ice cream bean, avocado tree, and perhaps hundreds of pineapples. Ficus, Mayo, and Nance trees provide food which attract a variety of birds and monkeys. The owners have also grown chaya, okra, sweet potatoes, yuca, pigeon peas, amaranth, sugar cane, ginger, turmeric and more.
There are three docks and the beginnings of a fourth (a preexisting clearing in the mangroves and some of the pvc/concrete posts), all in protected waters. There are 2 freshwater springs on the property which provide more than enough pure, clean water for you year round, plus a separate well for the cottage. The remaining land consist of a managed forest area which gives way to the wild jungle beyond.
The main house is open and breezy, with 10’ decks all the way around and a spectacular 20’ beamed ceiling. A center cupola provides light to the interior of the home, while 10’ custom folding screen doors on the south, west, and north walls, along with large screened windows blur the boundaries between inside and outside. A solar array provides ample power to the house so you can enjoy the big screen TV, music (with phenomenal acoustics), endless ice cold drinks, ceiling fans, chefs kitchen with separate pantry, and commercial clothes washer. The home is constructed of local termite resistant Spanish Red Cedar and has also been treated with a non-toxic boric acid preservative which further guards against both insects and fungus.
The bathroom has a dressing area with closet, low profile dual flush toilet, and contemporary vessel sink on a hand-made rubber wood vanity. The huge tiled shower with luxurious rain shower head is located just outside of the bathroom and is open to the jungle, keeping the steam outside and the stars in plain view.
The kitchen is large and functional and includes a chest freezer, an inverter fridge/freezer, 6 burner range/oven, double stainless steel sinks/drain boards, stainless steel and polished porcelain work surfaces. A large window above the sink with fold away screens and pass-through bar allow for easy entertaining.
The home is well thought out and built to exacting standards by a craftsman boat builder.
This property is beautiful to enjoy as it is, but also the has potential for several more homes, eco lodge, or farming/homesteading enterprise. Bring your ideas or just relax in this tropical paradise.
