AV-112 Bohemia 360-Degree Sea & Mountain Views With Extra-large Backyard



The pièce de résistance of this two-bed, two-bath Bohemia-model home (the largest two-bedroom floor plan in the Villages of Loreto Bay) is the oversized, third-level viewing tower proffering an incredible panoramic view of the ocean and islands, the golf course and mountains. Take it all in slowly from the comfort of one of the cushioned rocking chairs that swivel 360 degrees so you can look in every direction and watch the sun both rise and set. It will be hard to tear yourself away but other great outdoor spaces beckon when Loreto’s fine weather calls.

Back on the ground floor, two spacious, inviting and private outdoor courtyards await. An extra-large backyard features an outdoor shower, a barbecue that is connected to the home’s gas-line and a cozy seating area with upholstered metal chairs and a coffee table, the ideal gathering spot for socializing. Two mature palms — one a date and one a fan — provide shade and a neat walled garden bed at the end adds colour with flowering plants including bougainvillea and hibiscus. An auto irrigation system keeps the plants watered, even when you are away. Lights shining from the base of the palms and in the garden create a warm ambiance at night.

The easy-to-clean stamped concrete patio mimics the pattern of Loreto’s Malecon and is edged in river stone. Easy access to the main paseo and a gate opening to the landscaped and quiet community courtyard with a fountain allows you to drive your golf cart right in. This makes hauling groceries into this centrally located home in the Agua Viva neighborhood easy. There is also plenty of room to store your kayaks, paddleboards, and bicycles, and to park your golf cart.

The backyard flows to an airy but more shaded Saltillo tile courtyard that runs alongside the house. It has a lovely garden with a tall gurgling focal fountain. Dine alfresco or have a drink at the raised breakfast bar, which connects to the kitchen when the windows are open. A long storage cupboard with shelving keeps things organized and accessible under the stairs.

For indoor/outdoor living, four sets of French doors can be opened to this inner courtyard from the open-concept kitchen, dining and living room. There is plenty of light and bright indoor living space—over 2,100 square feet including the inner courtyard — on two levels, all floored in Saltillo tile. Some of the doors and windows have magnetic closure screens.

The east-facing cheery yellow kitchen is flooded with natural light, with soft under-counter lighting for night. It has solid wood cabinets and black appliances including a gas stove and a new Bosch silent dishwasher. A reverse osmosis water system provides safe drinking water and an instant hot water system feeds the sink and dishwasher. The cupola above is screened. A moveable wooden island adds extra prep room.

A wide archway opens the kitchen to the dining/living room, which features a custom entertainment centre with TV. Talavera tiles and traditional decor and art including a large metallic mirror and metal crosses and candelabras make the whole space feel authentically Mexican. The solid wood furniture throughout the casa (which is included) was handcrafted in Rosarito. Cowhide dining room chairs add a ranchero feel and the soft leather sofas in the living room are very comfortable.

Off the inner courtyard, you’ll find a master suite with a California king and hand-carved headboard. French doors open to a small front courtyard that floods the room with afternoon light. The ensuite has an art nook — a nice touch — and dual colorful Mexican Talavera sinks and a shower. A door opening directly to the main courtyard makes this bathroom accessible without walking through the bedroom. This is the same in the upstairs master ensuite.

A straight staircase with recessed lighting and an ivy-covered railing leads to a secluded second floor concrete terrace, with two sun loungers. Its east exposure makes it pleasantly cooler in the summer.

Underneath the newly refinished wooden pergola is a heavy travertine table and four chairs for outdoor dining. Four French doors front the second master suite with direct access to the terrace for an al fresco experience whether indoors or out. It also has a California king and the ensuite includes a rectangular soaker tub.

Under the staircase to the viewing tower, there is room for a bar table or chaise loungers with a view of the sunset. The tower is furnished with a couch and a coffee table, as well as a ceiling fan, in addition to the rocking chairs. Step into the more enclosed, half-walled extra space beyond the roof. It’s a great place to sit on windy days. No doubt about it — this is the prime place for intimate sundowners as the golden orb drops behind the multi-hued Sierra de la Giganta Mountains.

The sellers are the original owners of this lovely home, built-in 2009, who have meticulously maintained it. It is owned in an American LLC, which will save you thousands in closing costs.
