Casa de Campo, 12, DO
Los Lagos # 19 Casa de Campo
Benefiting from a highly sought-after location just a short walk to the beach and of drop-dead gorgeous view of the endless western sky and sunsets, Los Lagos # 19 is in a class of home all by itself. Set atop the Links golf course and graced with sweeping 180-degree views of four holes of golf, the home’s cathedral ceilings will awe you as will the quantity of light which pours into the home from every corner. The home’s decor is an eclectic mix of contemporary and tropical Caribbean chic, combining today’s styles with that "traditional Dominican Caribbean style", just like in early days when Charles Bluhdorn granted total control over the "aesthetic" of Casa de Campo to the great late Oscar de la Renta, who undoubtedly was an Icon of style and exceptional taste. The villa is full of tropical style and charm. Windows throughout the residence are framed with louvered mahogany sliding doors that open onto the patio and pool. A wonderful collection of Dominican, Haitian and Cuban art adorns every room in the villa and the entrance hallway as well. The patio, just off of the Great Room, is a popular gathering spot for guests. It includes a large pool and 4 different sitting areas for relaxing, in and out of the shade. It is surrounded on three sides by enchanting tropical gardens, and endless green plantings. The entire family can enjoy breakfast on the terrace while watching golfers tee off from the 15th tee of the Links golf course. Right after every magical sunset the extensive outdoor lighting illuminates the grounds and palm trees at night. Featuring 5 spacious bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms. The 20’ x 25’ professional kitchen receives “ooh’s” and “ahh’s” from guests and family alike. It has end to end 25” deep Italian marble counter top and 20” high back splash. Also dramatically enhanced with a 20+’ cathedral ceiling, with tropical fans. There is a 6’ x 4’ Italian marble island in the middle of the kitchen, and there is plenty of room all around for all the chef’s helpers, beit in the main kitchen or in the large 2nd kitchen when entertaining on a grand scale. The villa is perfect for hosting 20+ guests for meals and events. Benefiting from a privileged location, just 5-minute walking distance to the beach, this unique residence has a proven history of easily generating US $ 100,000+ rental incomes year after year and is the perfect investment property as well as property for personal use.
