This two story home has 360 degree views, dramatic sunrise and sunset vistas — in a setting near the highest mountain in Panama, the 11,400 foot Volcan Baru.
A custom contemporary open-plan home, built by the owner to the highest international structural and architectural standards, has 2 bedrooms including a ground floor bedroom and a 2nd floor master bedroom suite, 2 fully tiled bathrooms, modern spacious kitchen, a large living/dining area, slate and tile floors, aluminum windows, composite insulated roof, garage/laundry room, outdoor patio with slate picnic table and barbecue area, and balconies ready for hammocks. 2200 sq. ft. living area (200 sq. meters), 700 sq. ft. garage/laundry (65 sq. meters)
The Volcan area has one of the mildest climates in the world, averaging 75 degree days and 65 degree nights year round. The region is agricultural with many good roads. The addition of a new, 32 bed emergency hospital means that Volcan can now provide virtually all of the services that once could only be obtained in David City.
Located on the north side of the central Calle Estudiante road. As you approach the home the backdrop is the magnificent 11,400 foot Baru Volcano. Securely surrounding the home is a 6-foot high concrete wall and a steel main gate.
To your left is one of the two doors leading into the living and dining area. A feature of this home is the many windows that give the home a light, bright welcoming atmosphere.
The dining area accommodates a large table. To your right are several arches that lead to the kitchen. A 6 burner stove, tall refrigerator, and tiled and granite countertops make this a great place to prepare food while still being able to talk to your guests in the dining room.
Behind the kitchen is a passageway that leads to the ground floor bedroom and bathroom. The bedroom features hardwood closets.
To the left of the kitchen are the stairs to the upper bedroom.
Climbing the stairs brings up to the huge loft bedroom. Again the windows provide you with a 360 degree view of Volcan Baru and the nearby Tizingal mountain. From this vantage point the sunrises and sunsets will be spectacular.
The large master bedroom floor plan allows for an extended area of open space or further design enhancements.
The master bathroom features a deep tiled bath, washbasin and toilet, and has an adjacent walk-in closet.
It is clear that great attention to detail has been maintained throughout this executive home.
The owner has two small Hammock balconies on the west and eastern side of the room. If you wish is to sit and relax and watch the awesome beauty of a tropical starry night - then you have two great advantage points in this well designed home.
The fieldstone tiling on the floors gives this home an almost French Provincial feel. A further enhancement of this feeling is the garden wall and trees that provide this home with peace and seclusion even in the heart of this bustling mountain city.
