Large productive property in the Caribbean .Geographically situated exactly 1 mile from the center of the town of Utuado . 2 miles by car to center of town , Plaza in front of Iglesia San Miguel Arcangel.

LOCATION , LOCATION, LOCATION......RURAL setting yet close to everything. Beautiful one year old "One of a Kind" elevated home. located in a very quiet, very nice neighborhood with no crime and no problems..Great neighbors up and down the hill..Property is unique in that the home is not down in a valley where it would bake during the day with no breezes, nor is it clinging precariously to a tiny piece of land on the side of the road. It is not carved into the side of a mountain either. This home is built on its own "hard earth" hill where it receives constant easterly breezes which keep it cool . Because of its location, it is physically impossible to flood this home, the yard, the driveway or the front lot. NO mud nor landslides either...This makes it stand out from 90% of the homes in PR. and it is also one of the many desirable characteristics of this property. Super close to shopping, schools and U.S. Post Office,. Zip Code 00641 . Utuado has one of the lowest , if not THE lowest, crime ratesof all municipalities of Puerto Rico..... You will not find a comparable property to this one in location ,home construction , proximity to town and land area and overall quality for less than $350,000.00 on this Island. Do your own research, see what comparable properties are going for, and then come and get your new home..

MONTHLY HOME EXPENSES: Water $13.00 , Electric $40-60.00 , Taxes Annual $70.00 That is it!

PERFECT PROPERTY FOR YOUR HORSES!!

Home is built 300 feet from the road . All utilities (electric, phone and water) underground from the street.
City (municipal) water,. 2 other natural fresh water sources ( not creek) on property. Huge, oversized septic tank. Because of its location., it is physically impossible to flood tank. Tank will not overflow nor retain water because of its location. Only water from toilets go into tank. All other waste water (all sinks, roof and washing machine ) is carried away from home via two seperate conduits and distributed into finca. APPROX. 3.543 S.F of CONSTRUCTION..

2 Gated entrances that open to the street. 2 separate sites for future construction. One site (high , dry and rock hard earth) right as you enter the property ,see photos , the other accessible through road that traverses the property, see photo. Power, telephone and cable would be provided to secondary lot by power pole adjacent to secondary lot.. See photo.

Ample covered parking for 6 cars below home. Also ample parking out front.

Home is "OVERBUILT" for construction code.

Built with licensed Engineer and construction overseen by me ( the owner). Not typical "Puerto Rico" construction as you will see on just about every home here. Concrete will not fall from the face of the building in 2 years. Columns are at least double , triple , and in someplaces four times the size per code, with solid concrete (not block) and 2X the rebar construction per code. Double the rebar per code throughout structure. Roof poured as one piece. Not slab poured then block buildup around edges and center. This is the strongest roof in Utuado. You will not find a home built more solid than this in the area.. I would venture that this is one of the strongest structures between here and Arecibo. 150 amp electrical panel upstairs. 150 amp electrical panel downstairs. Also integrated transfer switch and separate hookups for a generator if deired. Dish Networks dishes and receivers installed. Internet access via dial up at present. Cable available out at the street for TV or broadband.

There is an additional empty 2" PVC conduit that runs from the power panel (4 meter box) at the street to the downstairs breaker box in the house. (300 feet) This is to accomodate an additional power cable if you choose to run tthe lower half of the house on its own meter. It is currently fed by upper homes' current.In addition to this conduit there are also two additional empty 1" PVC conduits that are plumbed in the same manner. These are to accomodate cable and/or an extra phone line to the house if needed.

Kitchen : All Solid Cedar cabinets and shelving throughout .

Hii-powered sodium security lamp in yard provided by the AEEPR (Power Co. of PR) and powered free of charge.

4 meter electrical panel at the street. See photo. 27' x 12' elevated terrace with double doors opening to the dining area. Double doors in master bedroom open to 5.5' x 18' private balcony overlooking the town of Utuado. Spectacular and breathtaking panoramic views, especially at night from the master bedroom overlooking town.. During December ,January and February, it is actually "cold " at night. Cold enough that you will need a blanket. 600 gallon water reserve tank. 40 Gallon Stainless Solar water heater. 8'4" ceilings upstairs, 8'6" downstairs. 3 bedroom 2 full baths. Tile floors throughout, Hunter ceiling fans in all bedrooms and throughout home. Floor to ceiling closets , with mirrored doors, in 2 bedrooms. Walk in closet in master bedroom.

Utuado is a small quiet, town located between the Atlantic and the Caribbean. (check the above links for photos and culture) and Utuado is one of Puerto Ricos prime tourist destinations due to its climate, its beauty and its cultural roots ------>> CLICK HERE For local attractions!. The expressway RTE. 10 runs right thru town. It should be thoroughly completed by the end of 2008. A new Walmart will be constructed also in 2008 ? as they have already leased the land.. Arecibo Telescope and Camuy Caverns are super close. This town is growing and is slated to expand greatly within the next decade due to the completion of the expressway , its fast access to both coasts and its wonderful climate. Those in Ponce , looking to escape the unbearable heat of the summer are buying weekend properties here. There is less than three miles of the expressway to complete between here and Adjuntas..

Home is not out in the boondocks, We are so close to town that when the D'Aqui coffee co-op (Exporters and Packagers) roasts their coffee ,the aroma of roasting coffee drifts right through this home.
