Casa Shangri La is a beautiful oasis set into its own coconut grove in front of Paradise Cove in the Trade Wind Development just east of town center. Walking into town takes approximately 20 minutes and considerably less with a bicycle or motorized scooter or golf cart. The well maintained road is accessible year round.

This thoughtfully built home takes into consideration all of the necessary components for comfortable tropical living with exceptional attention paid to the smallest details.

This elevated home has a floor plan which consists of two stories with liveable space. There is a large secure storage bodega at ground level which contains the 15,000 gallon water cistern for rain catchment which is also hooked up to a private water source that can be accessed on demand. Also in the bodega are the pressurized hot water on demand system and the 2.6 kilowat solar system which sells back to the grid and reduces monthly power bills. There is sufficient space for a workshop and the storage of tools and water sports equipment and also space to park a few vehicles both inside the bodega and outside in a covered area.

There is also ample space for the construction of additional living areas if desired.

Stairs up to the first floor of the home open up onto the wrap around balcony, a breezy outdoor space to sit and entertain while enjoying the dramatic views of Paradise Cove and the Caribbean Sea beyond.

Paradise Cove is an enclave about 150 feet from Casa Shangri La with permanent access to the beach and water located steps from the home. Dramatic volcanic cliff rock at the mouth of the cove create a stunning back drop and magnificent sound as waves crash into the cove. Excellent snorkeling and swimming to be had with world class scuba diving sites just beyond.

The front door opens into the living area of the home which is warm and welcoming with colourfully painted walls and ceramic tile floors which help to maintain a comfortable temperature indoors. Windows on all sides of the room allow natural lighting and cooling breezes to filter into the space. Built-in shelving along one wall offer a pleasing back-lit area to display cherished belongings.

The office and guest bedroom, which can be easily converted into a permanent second bedroom, flows from the living area separated by a small brightly lit alcove. This room contains ceramic tiled floors and plenty of windows along one wall to take advantage of the natural light and cooling breezes. A large built in desk provides a comfortable and inspiring work space with views out into the tropical garden. This room has its own access to the wrap around deck outside. A closet with large storage space behind it and a full bathroom are located in this room.

The spaces flow naturally into one another and beyond the living and dining area is a functional and exquisite kitchen with tiled floors and Honduran Cedar cabinetry offering ample storage and granite counter tops with an expansive space to cook and entertain. A spacious walk-in pantry off of the kitchen allows for additional storage.

Appliances are included with the sale Kitchen Aid Gas 4 burner Cook top; Separate Kenmore Wall Oven; Kenmore Elite Refrigerator/Freezer; Hotpoint Dishwasher and Whirlpool Microwave. A window over the ceramic sink allows views of the bright green mangrove and the multitude of birds therein. The view extends beyond the mangrove to the Caribbean Sea and the mountains of mainland Honduras.

A staircase of polished bamboo flooring leads up and into the private master suite. Relax in comfort with a brand new Split unit 18,000 BTU Air Conditioner and enjoy the view from the brand new windows on three sides of the room.  A sun deck which faces the east is accessible from the master suite and is a 15 by 15 foot area of sunrise, star gazing and Caribbean Sea watching serenity.

The ample master bathroom is tiled with marble and has a Jacuzzi bathtub with separate spacious walk in shower lined with glass blocks for natural lighting.

A considerable walk in closet is located off of the master bathroom and is lit naturally with a skylight. A laundry room is located in an alcove beyond the walk-in closet and has a Frigidaire washing machine and an LG clothes dryer and additional shelving.

The garden around the home which is contained with a 4 foot PVC white picket fence consists of maturing varieties of disease resistant coconut trees which offer shade, privacy and filtered light to the home as well as an abundance of fresh coconuts!

Home will be sold furnished.
