Listing number: SSS2002
This is a great family home, ready for you to move right in and begin your dream life in prestigious Las Palmas. The entire house was remodeled about 10 years ago and it has been well maintained. This is the lowest price home of this size in Las Palmas!
The house is a traditional banana plantation style, American built, on stilts with windows all around to stay cool. They were constructed of native hardwoods in the 1940-1950’s by the United Fruit Company for their highest paid executives. All of these homes were engineered to withstand earthquakes and built to last. Las Palmas was once a gated community and is still considered the “Beverly Hills” of Puerto Armuelles. There is a community swimming pool a block away from this home, two schools, and a tennis court in the neighborhood.
The upstairs portion of the house is about 1600 sq ft with 3 large bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is a long living room/ dining room and a family room around the corner, all with beautiful solid wood flooring throughout. Solid hardwood louvers are on the windows all around the house to allow the cool ocean breezes to flow through. The eat-in kitchen has tile floors and counter-tops with teak hardwood built-in pantry and storage cabinets. Both bathrooms have tile floors and walls and the bedrooms have large built-in closets and drawers. There are ceiling fans throughout and air conditioners in 2 of the bedrooms. One A/C is 8 years ‘new’ since it has all of the original paperwork on top of it and it has never been turned on! There is an extra large propane tank for the stove and a water storage tank with filters and pump outside.
Underneath the house is a large enclosed patio, which is wide open to create whatever living space you like. There is a gate to pull a car into the enclosed garage and a carport outside the fence. One large room downstairs is currently used as a workshop and storage space. Next to that is a laundry room with a full bathroom in need of updating. There is also a laundry area outside the room. This space could easily be converted into a one bedroom apartment to rent out or mother-in-law quarters for guests. This area gives the home a total of 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. There is also a garden storage shed outside. You will have no lack of storage space in this home!!!
The property is located on a quiet cul-de-sac. There is a fenced yard on one side of the home and an open yard on the other side. There are 4 raised bed gardens ready to plant your own organic veggies or decorative flowers. The property contains mature mango, plantain, pineapple and guanabana.
Bring your family and have plenty of room for everyone. Elementary and secondary children can walk to the school only 2 blocks away. This home is also perfect for gardeners and hobby/craftsmen because there is a lot of open space and storage. It is about a 10 minute walk into town and a 5 minute drive to the beach. The property is currently R.O.P. but all preliminary steps have been completed in the process to get title. Contact me for information on the titling process in Panama.
