Situated on perhaps the most important site in the exclusive gated community of El Paredon is the Castillo del Mar estate. You are greeted by an imposing 2-story high solid wood entry door system. Upon entering the home your eyes are drawn to the expansive views of the Bay of Banderas and the entire coastline all the way to Punta Mita. The impressive and dramatic main living area is nearly 3 stories tall with a living tree meandering all the way through the roofline and the appearance of a palapa ceiling and roof. Custom-designed for entertaining, the living area opens to a full bar complete with its own natural rock formation embedded within and on the opposite side leads to the raised dining area. A culinary masterpiece, the design of the kitchen affords entertaining and preparation in an abundant space with the centerpiece being the boulder outcropping, bringing nature inside the living environment. While the overall breadth of the home is substantial, it is extremely liveable on only two floors and is fully serviced by an elevator.As you walk through this turnkey home, note the artistic architectural details, from rounded walls, embedded hand-cut and placed river stones, exquisite marble, granite and stone surfaces, stained concrete flooring, and designs focused on taking advantage of the remarkable ocean vistas. Many of the bedrooms have dual purposes as is evidenced by their current use. For example the home is replete with a private home theater and executive office, both of which are easily converted to fully functioning bedrooms with their own private en-suite baths and walk-in closets with built-in cabinetry. The guest quarters is effectively a separate apartment and can be used by visiting guests who wish for additional privacy, or used as comfortable staff quarters with its own living room, kitchen area, private bedroom and full bath. In addition, the villa has a gym with private terrace, wine cellar for 100 bottles and a game/card room with private terrace overlooking the gardens.What would an oceanfront estate be without rambling terraces and patios to enjoy the lapping waves below? Thousands of feet of patio and terrace areas, off the bedrooms as well as off the main living areas of the home provide for an abundance of areas for relaxation and entertaining. The main terrace of the living room features a water trough feature with fountains, while the covered patio off the kitchen is ideal for dining at any time of the day. A heated Jacuzzi and pool offer the sun worshipers their own areas of captivation. Of course, the pool area also has a full bar and bathroom. And all of this engulfed by Mother Nature's tropical paradise that surrounds Puerto Vallarta. There are simply too many features and amenities of this dramatic and artistic home to list out in such a small property profile, so please request a fully-detailed summary of the property from your agent.
