Countryside Home with Fruit Trees
Welcome to this lovely five-bedroom home in a small development in the outskirts of Malacatos! The home boasts plenty of space for a large family or for those who want to have extra room for guests. You can even rent out rooms since there are extra bathrooms!
The house is 85% finished and just requires some finishing touches like flooring and paint – this gives you the opportunity to finish it how you like without having to build a home from scratch! There were plans to finish an additional living area on the second level with a loft area, which would provide space for another living room, rec room, or study!
The home has plenty of open spaces that bring in lots of natural light. The main floor is open-concept with a spacious living room, a dining room, and a kitchen. This floor also has a bedroom and a full bathroom. The second level has four bedrooms, two of which have their own private bathroom, a separate shared bathroom, and the extra living area with the loft that just needs to be finished. There are also two balconies on this level where you can unwind!
Back on the ground level going outside, there is a large covered patio where you can enjoy nature. In fact, there are several fruit trees on this property – avocados, mangos, oranges, tangerines, soursop, bananas, and papayas! The lot isn’t oversized at almost 1000 square meters (0.25 acre), meaning it doesn’t require that much maintenance. This is perfect for those who want to enjoy nature and fresh fruit from their land without having to maintain several hectares of land!
It has a total construction size of 320 square meters (3444.5 ft2).
At just a 12-minute drive from Malacatos, this home has quick access to town, yet it is still out in the countryside!
