For many travelers, the Dominican Republic becomes their retirement island, or just the place where they come each year to spend the winter months with friends or family. The fact that many people from different countries establish their life in the island has created a rainbow of styles in the real estate sector, influencing the perspective on places like Sosua, which is influenced by European and North American ( Canada and USA ) styles.
One house listed for sale that draws attention is the one we coded SPC0797, which we call the fairy tale house. Its nick name comes from the cozy, rather comfortable design and decoration, which shows 3 well appointed bedrooms spread in the 199 square meter construction layout in 2 floors. The house is built with towering vaulted roofs closely aligned in a classic style found in early 19th Century European homes.
The house`s first floor shows spacious areas including a living room that divides the dining area and the pool area porch, with the spiraling stairs in white and black set against a red wall that contrasts with the rest of the French-inspired decor. A cute kitchen in naturally toned wood with dark counter tops offers a yellowish background wall in a rather space saving configuration that yet feels enough for the house size; The bathrooms are light pastel tones of blue and white with dark granite sinks topped with white signature sinks and stainless steel geese neck faucets.
The guest bedroom in the first floor includes its own bathroom and has access to the swimming pool area and garden in the back. For those who enjoy reading a good book in Sosua while living or vacationing here, the pool has twin decks for the chaise lounges and there`s an extra, second floor solarium area next to the master suite and a balcony that has nice views of the areas below. This house might be considered a villa for many, though we`d rather call it a house with the fairy tale feeling.
It can be owned with the furnishings, which actually are a vital part of the way the house looks in the photos, and of high quality. Its current owner added pretty much all of the amenities most people would want to have in such a home, like back up power, alarm, A/C, satellite, Etc. The listing priced of the house is US$286,000.00 or the Euro equivalent which is acceptable in the current real estate market.
