A 3-storey, 3 bedroom home with super-solid poured-concrete construction on 2.15 acres of unimaginably beautiful view land. This home overlooks the ocean, sunsets, and the river valley and is just a 9-minute drive to Del Mar Academy!
Casa Uno has all the hallmarks of a classic John Fraser home: expansive balconies on 4 sides, symmetry, arches, airflow, and spacious bedrooms and bathrooms. Casa Uno may need work, but it has great bones and with a little vision it has every potential to blossom into a magical dream property.
The first floor has a pretty entryway, an unfinished central kitchen with bodega, and two big bedrooms with large ensuite bathrooms. Covered terraces surround the house in all directions, inviting you to explore the surrounding land.
The second and third floors are separated by a locking interior door, allowing for renters or visitors to privately occupy the upstairs spaces. It has a double bedroom, large double-sink bathroom with shower, a finished kitchen, and living/ study areas with thoughtful built-ins. This second-storey space is flanked by huge curved walk-around terraces to the north and the south, each with views of the ocean, valley and adjacent jungle.
The third storey is an open bedroom and work space with wonderful domed ceiling and two more large balconies on the east and west sides, giving the best views of the Pacific as well as a perch for stargazing or afternoon shade.
Surrounding Casa Uno is a large swath of view land waiting for gardens, orchard, garage, guest house or pool. The current owners reclaimed an astonishingly beautiful lower terrace above a retaining wall in order to make the most of the Pacific Ocean sunsets. There are limitless possibilities to plant, sculpt and design an extraordinary landscape to entertain family and friends.
Mango loves this property because it is the quintessential diamond in the rough, with beautiful interior and exterior spaces just waiting to be renewed.
