This two-bedroom, two-bath, meticulously maintained Nuevo Bohemia model home (the largest two-bedroom floor plan in the Villages of Loreto Bay) fronting the main Paseo is painstakingly renovated with many quality features. When the great outdoors calls (and in Loreto it always does), choose from three inviting outside spaces.
The crème de la crème is the oversized, third-level viewing tower with its sweeping views of the multi-hued Sierra de la Giganta Mountains and the lush golf course, as well as glimpses of Punta Nopolo and Carmen Island. Gather with friends around the bar table for sundowners. The west open-air window is equipped with drapes to shade the afternoon sun and the ceramic tile flooring and custom tile pattern on the landing has been treated with special waterproofing and drain control (on all three levels).
Down the stairs is a spacious ceramic terrace, also featuring special tile-work outside the second-level master bedroom. It has a custom floor-to-ceiling built-in closet and drawers, a platform king bed with storage drawers, and a television. The Juliet balcony opening to the Paseo is fitted with zero maintenance aluplast uPVC French doors with screens — an upgrade throughout the house, as are the windows.
Sliding doors open from the bedroom to the terrace’s shade pergola, under which sits a round mosaic stone table and four chairs. The terrace also has two sun loungers and new plants, like banana palms, in large new pots with an automatic watering system. For a quiet getaway, under the staircase to the viewing tower sits a comfortable solo chair and table facing the Paseo, with a view of the sunrise.
Also on this level is an extra large laundry room with an area for drying items and extra storage shelves — unique to this Loreto Bay model.
The frosted street-side window provides privacy and two doors allow entry into the bedroom and the outside living space.
A mature bougainvillea with dual-colored pink/fuchsia blossoms brightens the main staircase, growing from the small, neatly tended garden in the private outdoor courtyard/living area below. Halfway down the stairs is a gate, enabling one with pets or young children to lock-off the floors. The garden has Mexican clay pots amidst the greenery and an automatic watering system, as well as a focal fountain. A stone bar table and four stools is a welcome spot for a drink or al fresco dining, made easy by a pass through window (with screen) from the kitchen, an entertainer’s dream.
For seamless indoor/outdoor living, three sets of French doors open into the open-concept kitchen/living/dining room. Painted a neutral taupe, the light space features custom-made wood furniture, including a bar cabinet, entertainment centre, round dining table with six chairs, and square coffee table. One of the two tan leather sofas is a queen-size sleeper. An upgraded chandelier, with dimmer, provides a warm ambience for dining.
The TV comes complete with a Roku and wiring is ready for a dish hookup (from the third-floor tower inside the wall and into the data management system so that no wires show outside).
A wide terracotta archway, adorned with metallic iguanas, opens into the upgraded kitchen. It features beautiful granite countertops and has dual stainless sinks with faucet sprayer, stainless steel appliances including a new refrigerator, upgraded light fixtures, pullout shelving in the cross-hatched wooden cupboards and closet, and open storage baskets under one counter.
Accessed from the inner courtyard, the downstairs master suite is designed for multi-use. It has a Murphy king bed with custom built-in floor-to-ceiling wood cupboards providing lots of storage and nightstands with electric charging stations. Screened French doors open to a small enclosed private front courtyard that floods the room with light. It has porcelain tile with good drainage and plumbing for plants, and an electric outlet for a fountain. A cafe table with two chairs is the perfect spot to enjoy your morning coffee or read a book.
Like the upstairs ensuite, the downstairs bathroom also opens both to the bedroom and the outside living space, making it accessible without walking through the bedroom. It is nicely upgraded with a granite countertop with dual white under-mount sinks, frosted windows for privacy, and travertine flooring, tub surround and shower tile.
The spacious storage room with louvered door panels and built-in shelving keeps things organized and accessible under the stairs. Here you’ll find a full home water conditioner, a large new hot water heater, and all data management from each room for direct internet capability.
A large front entranceway has room for storage and an attractive new tile floor, with a ramp to store your golf cart indoors when not in residence.
An opening window in one of the upper panels of the wooden front door allows the breeze to flow in. A real bonus is direct access from the Paseo, making hauling groceries in easy.
Location, location, location — this lovely Nuevo Bohemia is in the Founders’ neighborhood, a very short walk to numerous shops, services and restaurants, the community pool and the beach on the Sea of Cortez. The casa comes furnished, with artwork indoors and out, making it ready for immediate occupancy or for rental.
