REDUCED! HOME ALONG THE MAJESTIC MACAL RIVER IN VACA LAKE, CAYO
Macal River, Cayo District, Belize
his custom built home was designed to blend in with its natural jungle setting while providing a footprint that maintains the precarious balance between comfort and preservation of its surrounding forest and wildlife habitat. Yes, this is in Belize! A home for the nature lover or for someone wanting to change the fast lane for more panoramic views, abundant Flora and Fauna.
The home was built in 2015 and is made from concrete blocks, metal roofing with beautiful local hardwood ceilings and doors. The home was designed as a two-level home with the upper level accommodating a full size Master Suite with a small walk-in closet, a private bathroom that features a custom built stained concrete wash basin and a riverstone shower wall. The suite has a 22 ft ceiling with 14 glass louver windows, 6 solid windows and a sliding glass door with screens providing plenty of natural lighting and optimal ventilation. A built-in wooden ladder provides access to the loft, which can be used as an additional sleeping or living area. The suite also has a ceiling fan, which is hardly ever needed.
The guest suite is on the lower level. It was designed to accommodate a live in caretaker or as a guest bedroom. It has a private bath with shower similar to the master suite. A kitchen sink with countertop was added to be able to rent this space out without having to let the guests have access to the main upper level. It features a custom built queen sized mahogany bed with a single bunk bed on top and shelves/clothing racks on each side.
There is also a solar room that has plenty of storage capacity and a separate storage room with shelves. A Hotpoint gas dryer is also on the deck. The lower deck has plenty of room to hang clothes, hammocks for relaxation or for larger gatherings on rainy days.
