If you are looking for a home in the Loreto, Mexico region, then take a look at this Momentum Real Estate listing for a two-bedroom, 2.5-bathroom custom home that backs onto the Loreto Bay Golf Course and was fully renovated in 2015. As it has only been occupied for short visits since there has been no wear and tear and the appliances are like new.
Built-in ’98, it features a high-ceilinged bungalow living room with the rest of the 2,471-square-foot California-style house two storeys, including two spacious bedrooms above the kitchen and garage. Features include a large outdoor pool, a second-level covered terrace offering beautiful mountain and Sea of Cortez views, and a two-car attached garage. The home is furnished and includes a couple of paintings.
Nestled on the private corner lot of a quiet Nopolo cul-de-sac, the casa oozes street appeal. A new flagstone driveway and porcelain tile walkway leads to the hardwood custom front door. The exterior of the warm terracotta home was repaired and repainted during the renovation. The lot is beautifully landscaped with a lush front lawn dotted with colorful blooming vegetation, mature palm trees and a neat bougainvillea hedge separating the driveway and walkway, which continues around the house to the gated backyard. Bordering the exterior of the backyard’s sidewall is a fragrant grapefruit and an orange tree, with a hedge filling the planter running along the back wall.
The large backyard is a dream for outdoor lovers and entertainers with a maintenance-free, easy-to-clean porcelain tile deck trimmed in dark Mexican Cantera stone with an inground rectangular pool that gradually slopes to a deep end. The nearby pool house contains updated equipment. Two sun-loungers invite one to catch some rays or relax under the palms for shade, automatically watered by a new irrigation system. For al fresco dining with stunning mountain and golf course views, a glass and wrought iron table with an umbrella and six chairs await.
Up a slight step, access the open-concept main floor through the French glass back door or the quadruple sliding doors into the living room, which can be opened to let the outdoors in and create one large entertainment space. Custom made blackout drapes adorn these sliding doors and all windows throughout.
To the left of the back door is the kitchen and to the right is the living room, all with the same tile and stone flooring as outside. Most furniture is wicker with comfortable upholstered cushions. A wood-burning fireplace and woven throw rug add warmth on the few winter nights Loreto is cool. The ceiling fans (some with lights) throughout are new, as are the two air conditioning units downstairs.
With a large window overlooking the front lawn, an alcove off the living room invites one to curl up and read in the cozy chair or on the king sofa bed, perfect for extra guests. This space would also make a great library or home office. A door provides direct access to the powder room.
The kitchen flows from the living room. With four sets of windows overlooking the pool, the space is light and invites the outdoors in. Hardwood cabinets handcrafted by a local cabinetmaker are complimented by multi-hued travertine backsplash, a double stainless sink, and black granite countertops with an eating bar and three stools. Stainless Frigidaire appliances include a refrigerator/freezer with ice-maker, microwave, dishwasher, and a gas range. Dine at the oblong glass table with six wicker and upholstered chairs. The iron candelabra, like all light fixtures in the home, is new.
The raised front entranceway features a wrought iron railing made locally, with three steps on each side leading down into the living room or the kitchen. Seashell sconces light the high walls above the archways.
Off the hallway, you’ll find a large pantry and storage room. In the opposite direction is a laundry room with a full-size washer/dryer, new cabinets, a new water softener, and a new hot water heater. A door opens from the laundry into the 585-square-foot garage with a large window. Floored in traditional Mexican Saltillo tile, there is room for two cars or a car and a golf cart plus bicycles and toys. In a kick-out at the rear of the garage is a workbench with pegboard above for organizing your tools.
Up the stairs are two large bedrooms with sloped ceilings, complete with ensuites. The master features a California king with a new mattress and sliding glass doors to the covered terrace with a million-dollar view of the Sierra de la Giganta Mountains and the sea. The ensuite includes a walk-in shower and a new toilet, double sinks, and countertops. A glass door opens from the bath onto the terrace.
The second bedroom faces the quiet front street and has a covered outdoor terrace that can be accessed from both the bed and the bathroom, also with a fabulous vista of the mountains and the sunset. Together, the upstairs terraces add 1,485-square-feet of outdoor space. The queen bed has an upholstered headboard and also sports a new mattress. The tile is Saltillo and there is a large closet, as well as an ensuite with a new toilet, sink, mirror, and countertops.
This home is ideally located in Nopolo, just minutes from historic Loreto, one of Mexico’s charming Pueblo Mágicos (Magic Towns). Unlike The Villages of Loreto Bay across the golf course, in Nopolo there are no monthly homeowners’ fees, just property taxes $5,310.72 MX
