Perched atop Villas Del Mar in Palmilla, an exclusive residential community in Los Cabos, this sprawling Spanish-style home hovers 282 feet over the clear blue waters of the Sea of Cortez.
“The sound of the sea is constantly everywhere in the house,” said property developer Roberto Moreno, co-founder of Cardón Land Co. Attributing this soothing sound to the home’s indoor-outdoor design and prime location, he added that the open layout and unobstructed seaside view make blue swaths of “pure sky and sea” the centerpiece of the home’s living experience.
The residence maintains a sense of privacy, with a private road that wraps its way up the hill to the residence’s welcoming, private entrance. Once inside, behind the secluded entranceway, the home is the picture of a Mexican beachside resort home with high vaulted ceilings, intricate wrought iron railing, and smooth marble, stone and wood flooring.
High-quality and handmade features, such as handcrafted furniture and custom lighting fixtures, stand alongside a top-of-the-line smart home system called Savant that allows homeowners to program and control the home’s electronic equipment.
To top it off, the turnkey residence also includes a curated art collection by both Latin-American and Mexican artists. Spanning multiple mediums, the diverse collection adds a contemporary twist to the architecturally traditional home, while also reflecting the region’s evolving and rich culture.
With 9,990 square feet of interior space and 4,693 square feet of outdoor space, there are five bedrooms, six full-bathrooms and three half-bathrooms.
In addition to its integrated smart home technology, the residence also includes a customized chef’s kitchen, prep kitchen, wine cave, media room, swimming pool, Jacuzzi, fire pit, gym and sauna.
For many years, Palmilla had been a quiet spot in Baja California, accessible only to those willing to make the (sometimes quite long) trip to the secluded area. “It used to be that you either flew here, because you were a movie star, or you drove here in your Volkswagen, because you were a surfer,” Mr. Moreno said. Now, however, with over 500 weekly flights to the local airport and plenty of space for private jets, the area is easier to access than ever.
In fact, once called “the aquarium of the world” by famed conservationist and documentarian Jacques Cousteau, the Sea of Cortez is well-known for its biodiversity, clear waters, and natural beauty. As a result, the area offers residents a variety of sea-oriented activities, such as whale watching, fishing, and snorkeling, in addition to many more.
Of course, thanks to the exclusive residential community, the area also offers plenty of world-class dining, shopping and cultural events for its upscale residents.
