Casa de la Cascada


The remodeling begins, most recent to oldest pictures.


It was originally constructed in 1999 as a model home for the development. However, the construction was never completed. The house had 5 bedrooms and 5 1/2 baths, living/dining area, studio/office, kitchen with an outside dining balcony and a laundry area. The house is approximately 3,500 square feet and there is an additional 3,160 square feet of patio, terrace and garden areas.

We purchased the property "as is" in March of 2006 and completed the transaction in May of 06. We contracted with the original developer and architect to complete the construction and to modify the floor plan to satisfy our requirements. The water and septic systems were installed and connected. The plumbing fixtures were installed as well as all of the electrical outlets. The interior and exterior was completely cleaned and repainted. All of the exterior tile work needed to be cleaned, the pool needed to be tiled and the front patio, entry area and rear garden will be landscaped.

We added air conditioning and additional tile on the terrace stairs around the outside. In addition, we had two of the upper bedrooms combined into one large Master Suite, which now have "His" and "Hers" bathrooms. A "wet bar" was removed from the living area to enlarge that area and the entry way.
