Nestled behind a mature fruit orchard and garden, Casa Vaquera looks out on an expanse of indigenous trees and palms, creating a unique sanctuary.
The main two-bedroom house plus loft was built using traditional methods and locally sourced hardwoods, incorporating rugged stone, mission-style plaster, and hand-hewn antique doors. A more contemporary art studio with palapa covered porch is steps away and can easily be converted to a private guest house or third bedroom.
Additional structures on the property include an ample storage bodega and covered workspace, bath house, and a screened second-story palapa room, perfect for enjoying magnificent sunsets or undisturbed afternoon siestas lulled by the sounds of the ocean and cooled by gentle on-shore breezes.
This spacious corner parcel features 4 deeded lots totaling 6,740 square meters, allowing more than enough room for a pool, additional casitas, or a custom residence complementing the existing buildings.
The property is fenced and gated with private entry just off Calle Los Torotes, allowing a second entry directly off Camino las Playitas. A quick 5-minute walk brings you to a pristine stretch of secluded beach, the magnificent waves of the Pacific Ocean and picture-perfect sunsets dipping below the horizon.
