Aguas Verdes

Aguas Verdes is a modern plantation-style house executed in crisp white stucco, stone and wood. The strict hand of Encanto's California-based architect is evident in this taut and meticulously designed duplex, named for the jungle's reflection in nearby streams. A north-south axial wall of stone anchors the building and discretely separates the two wings of this duplex home. High ceilings, breezy vented roofs, diffused natural light and private gazebos make Aguas Verdes an exquisite and stylish tropical escape.

Aguas Verdes is designed and carefully situated to capture the prevailing breezes and provide secluded outdoor living spaces. Both units offer a unique experience; the east hovers on the edge of the jungle, capturing the early morning light and the sounds of the waking day, while the west unit faces the white waters of playa Zancudo and the magnificent daily show of colors at sunset.

Inside, the central stone wall is a dramatic backdrop for the custom kitchen. The open floor plan is punctuated by cathedral ceilings and clerestory windows. Along the northern exposure, a length of doors opens to large covered decks, integrating the outdoor living areas. The units have two air-conditioned bedrooms and a spacious bathroom featuring a private and secure open air shower brimming with tropical plants. The master bedroom includes a luxurious separate bath with outdoor shower secluded from view by a private tropical garden. Amenities include hot water showers, washer and dryer, secure exterior surfboard shed with outdoor shower, and covered parking.
