Only one common wall, a rarity in the Villages of Loreto Bay casas, means this two-bedroom, two-bathroom Casa Chica model home has more privacy and lots of windows, great cross-ventilation, tons of inviting natural light and a feeling of openness. Festive Mexican artwork (included) and colorful feature walls throughout the main floor adds to the cheeriness.
The large, private flagstone courtyard in the back, with a soothing fountain, colorful bougainvillea and lots of plants, is a lovely place to enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail undisturbed. It is also ideal for entertaining as it’s on the same level as the kitchen. The flagstone paving is easy to clean and to maintain. With a temporary ramp, a golf cart could be parked back here. Enlarge the feeling of your courtyard by opening the lockable gates to the adjoining and quiet public courtyard with beautiful landscaped gardens and a fountain. A metallic sun trellis rising to the second floor on the casa’s back wall adds an artistic touch.
From the main indoor living space — an open-concept kitchen, dining and living room — three sets of glass-paned double French doors can be fully opened to let the outside in. The kitchen and dining room is light-filled with windows overlooking Loreto Bay’s main Paseo. In the evening, a large chandelier with six glass globes casts a warm ambience around the dining table, which can be extended with a leaf. Enjoy visiting with guests seated in the living room or on stools at the countertop island while you cook in the galley kitchen. Black appliances include a microwave, electric range, dishwasher and fridge/freezer with ice-maker.
Many renovations and improvements have recently been made to this well-maintained home. In the kitchen, they include adding a backing to the cross-hatch wood cupboards to keep dust out, recaulking the gorgeous Mexican Talavera tile counters and backsplash, and a new faucet.
Down the hall is the first of two master suites with a fan lazily stirring above the king bed draped in white linens. This bright room features double windows. Across the hall is a full bathroom with a separate shower and dual sinks with a large Talavera trimmed mirror above. The bathtub was removed to make way for custom built-in storage cabinets and drawers, as well as a shoe closet, with a full-length mirror on the back of the door. Storage like this is truly a rarity in Loreto Bay, so you’ll have plenty of space for your clothes, linens, towels and other items. The bathroom is also bright, thanks to a double window opening to the courtyard. At the end of the hall, between the bed and bath rooms, double French doors open directly onto the back courtyard.
The outdoor garden typical of Casa Chicas between the front entrance door and the house has been replaced with easy to maintain Saltillo tile and a fountain with a small garden underneath. The vestibule is equipped with a stackable washer and dryer closet and a large storage cupboard complete with shelving.
Up the staircase with an ivy-covered handrail is an inviting private terrace done in beautiful ceramic tiles overlooking the Paseo. Here you’ll find an entertainment and relaxation area with two sun loungers, two comfortable easy chairs, and two side tables. Under the wooden pergola sits a round aluminum dining table with four chairs and a built-in barbecue center with a bar sink and cabinets, which have recently been refinished inside and out.
The upstairs master suite is light and bright with three windows, pale yellow walls and a kingsize bed, two wooden wardrobes with a safe and a spacious full bathroom, also with two windows. It has double white sinks and Mexican Talavera tiles framing the huge mirror and accenting the separate walk-in shower and water closet. Instead of a bathtub, there are lockable storage cupboards, topped with cushions for a daybed.
Spiral stairs lead from the patio to the open-style, ceramic-tiled viewing tower with stunning views of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains, Punta Nopolo and the bell tower of the hotel. This tower is one of the most private in the village as no other towers are close by. Fabric atop the wooden pergola, which covers part of the tower, provides shade. Enjoy happy hour at the bar table with two swivel stools or on the wooden built-in benches as the setting sun paints the lush golf course and the jagged peaks in hues of amber and rose. The open area of the tower is ideal for stargazing on Loreto’s many clear nights. Best of all, in this finished neighborhood, nothing can ever be built to obstruct your view.
This lovely house comes fully furnished inside and out. Ideally located fronting the Paseo in the Founders’ neighborhood makes it easy to locate and to tote groceries and items from your vehicle. Many of the village’s shops, services and amenities are close by, including the community pool, coffee shop, convenience store, a boutique, and salon, as well as the community centre and library. Across the street, the Sea of Cortez and the beach are just a couple of minute walk.
