Located next to the Macho de Monte canyon on the new road that connects Boquete to Volcan, this 4200 square foot home sits on over 2 hectares (7 acres) with half of the property beautifully landscaped while the other half (separated by a living fence and currently used by our neighbors for grazing their cattle) is perfect for horses, livestock or simply enjoying the expansive views of Volcan Baru and the Pacific Ocean.
The location has easy paved access to Boquete, Volcan and David. The strong seasonal winds that affect both Volcan and Boquete during the summer months do not occur here.
The main house is back from the road and constructed of M2 materials. It is oriented on an East/West axis with little direct sunlight coming into the house, making for a constant ambient temperature with no need for air conditioning or heating. Water is supplied via a well cared for community system that provides plenty of potable water. Entry is through an iron electric gate into the half of the property that the house is on. A creek borders part of the property and is accessed via a pathway through the jungle that leads to a deck built over the creek. The property is surrounded by an impenetrable living fence.
House entry is via the porte cochere that provides covered parking for two cars. An adjacent covered patio has marble flooring and provides the main entry to the home. Seating here gives perfect viewing of the many birds that visit our feeder.
Enter and turn right to the main part of the home which features a Great Room with expansive windows looking out to Volcan Baru. The main seating area has three sofas for relaxing and entertaining as well as a sunken area with built-in bookshelves/storage, a sofa and two comfortable chairs for more intimate conversations. The deck from here provides for outside grilling, dining and entertaining. There is an open kitchen with all stainless steel appliances, double ovens, cooktop, dishwasher, and lots of storage. There is a breakfast bar and a dining area with seating for ten. Down the hall is an office, a half-bath, laundry facilities and the Master Bedroom.
The master bedroom, at the East end of the house, features an expansive view towards Volcan Baru. It easily houses a king bed with bedside tables, a sofa, and a built-in cabinet with television hook up and storage for linens. The deck can be accessed that has a large, covered seating area and hot tub. Inside a stairway with bookshelves below leads to a loft currently used for yoga and meditation. The master bathroom has double sink vanities and a large under counter storage cabinet as well as a vanity desk and seating area with two large cabinets beneath for towel storage. The shower is 10 feet x 10 feet and features two wall mounted shower heads and an overhead rain shower.
Left of the entry are two downstairs bedrooms that share a full bath. There is a circular stair access to an upper level that has a seating and dining area as well as a full bathroom, laundry facilities and kitchen. There are two covered decks, one from a bedroom and one from upstairs. The upstairs level can also be accessed from the porte chochere via an exterior stairway. This part of the home is perfect for guests as it gives privacy and easy access to the main house. It can also provide a rental apartment that sleeps four, yet does not interfere with the main house occupants.
There are three other structures on the property: a 580 square foot, concrete block structure with a full bathroom currently being used as a workshop. It could also be used as housing for hired help (gardener/housekeeper). There is a greenhouse/potting shed with running water and storage for garden implements. The third structure is used for secure storage of the lawn tractor, weed eater, and miscellaneous items.

Listed both under Volcan and Boquete due to proximity and that people in either market may be interested in a wonderful residence relatively close to both towns.
Please note that the main road near this property will be expanded soon which is likely to increase the value of properties near its path. Currently, the property is about 20 minutes to downtown Volcan and less than an hour to Boquete or David:
