This premier open-style house is located in the well-manicured community known as Discovery Bay on Isla Solarte. The construction was completed in 2012 and due to the meticulous detailed eye of the owners it is now finished and available currently for the first time. This “view from every room” custom built house was built with a lot of imagination and flair making it one of the best homes in all the islands. Located just a short 10-minute boat ride to Bocas Town and also a shorter 5-minute boat ride to the popular over-the-water restaurant, “Blue Coconut.” Being this close to town lets you enjoy the social life of Bocas, if you so desire.
This 2 floor house is built on the side of a hill that offers stunning views from both floors of the private marina, other islands, and the mountains on the mainland. The house is well over 6000 sq ft making it one of the largest homes in the Bocas islands. Two huge front decks with two custom 2 person hammocks are positioned on each floor. The house is built with all native hardwoods including the floor and covered decks. Thousands of dollars of bronze hinges were imported to prevent rusting. The inside of the house has 3 bedrooms and 3 and 1/2 baths. The office/den has a pullout bed that makes up the 3rd bedroom. The house sleeps 8 comfortably. Each bedroom has its own wardrobe. The baths all feature waterfall faucets and unique tiles, as well as top quality toilets and fixtures. All custom furniture and artwork are included in the house purchase. The high-end kitchen has all the latest equipment as well as the coveted dishwasher. A granite countertop with very unique splash back tiles. A large pantry stores all your supplies. In front of the kitchen is a large 5.5 x 8 ft island of granite with bull-nosed trim. This was designed so no space goes unused. The design had family and entertaining in mind. The construction methods are very solid. Instead of the standard 12 ft apart support beams, this house was designed on 10 ft beams apart. There is a large bodega that houses a workshop, storage, washer/dryer, as well as the water systems and solar systems.
The house, as well as the small community, is “green” meaning off-the-grid. The 4kw solar system boasts 20 205-watt solar panels on the roof, brand new batteries, and new surge protectors were just installed.
