This fabulous Lake Atitlan, water-front property rises from the base of the San Pedro volcano directly in front of and across the bay from the town of Santiago Atitlan, set on 1.7 acres of lush gardens.
It comprises of a spacious main house with 2 bedrooms and 2 full bathrooms along with a separate one-bedroom, guest house all situated for maximum views amidst verdant flower gardens, orchids everywhere, and native fruit trees including avocados. (No chemicals have been used for 11 years on this property.)
This secluded, off-the-grid property is not accessible by road but is just a 5- minute boat ride from Santiago Atitlan.
The private dock leads from the shore up a winding stone pathway through terraced gardens teeming with colour. Built with hand-carved rock, the speciality of Santiago artisans, along with aged, natural cypress, the house has a warm ambience of traditional melded with modern. A wrap-around terrace leads into a spacious open-plan kitchen and living area with large, stone fireplace and the main floor bathroom.
Upstairs there are the two bedrooms, each with a stone fireplace and plenty of storage, and the second full bathroom. Both bedrooms open to a veranda running the length of the house. The perfect place to take in the amazing views of the two Santiago volcanoes and the town of Santiago itself.
Behind and beside the main house, far enough to be private, is the guest house: a fully-equipped, one-bedroom casita with spectacular views as well.
The main house is currently successfully advertised as a vacation rental on both Airbnb and TripAdvisor and has been generating increased income each year. If you chose to continue, there is plenty of room to expand with building sites to either side of the property. It would also make a perfect retreat/boutique hotel space.
All the off-the-grid infrastructure is in place with a 2,500-watt solar system and its own water system. The price includes the custom-built furniture and everything you need to run the property.
