Rare opportunity to own a well maintained and modern property steps from the beach in Vieques. Designed by Architect Paul Lutton and finished in 2011, the 3 floor building is like a ship above Seaglass Beach with it's bow shaped patios, rounded railings, and imposing foundations.
Located on a dead end street with little traffic, the property and its gated gardens are serene yet are a short few blocks from restaurants, shopping and the bustle of the plaza of Isabel Segunda. Accessible via car from lower road to the beach or upper street via gates, the building welcomes its occupants into calming and cool spaces that integrate the interior with the exterior.
There are 2 independently accessible 3 bedroom 2 bathroom apartments. Entrance gates that rotate on a center post made of concrete and steel and designed by artist Brook Grant transition into the main living space of each unit. Large floor to ceiling accordion doors show off the unexpected explosive presence of the beach and views of the Caribbean Sea all the way to El Yunque on the main island. The kitchen has plenty of counter and storage space with dramatic and creative niches throughout. Bamboo and reed dropped ceilings and wood slider closet doors in all rooms serve to balance and soften the extensive concrete surfaces. Outdoor showers perched on independent and private patios provide a tree house feel.
In addition to the 2 apartments there is a multi-car drive-in garage and space for a workshop and an additional separate entrance space that is currently a music / dance studio. This space could become another full apartment quite easily. With over 3200 square feet of interior space and additional 1000 square feet of covered deck space and a massive rooftop deck with the statement G bar, the property feels spacious and luxurious yet whimsical and friendly.
Deep shade patios (perfect for hammock napping), the builder's planning for prevailing breezes, and strategically shaped cut outs provide for ample cooling. Arq. Lutton specifically points to the "Small portholes in the stairways provide light and glimpses of the greenery surrounding the house. Niches and other openings serve to add interest and connections between spaces" as key features of this lovingly designed and comfortable home. Come see it for yourself.
