Outdoor living at its finest!
Nature is the garden and the inspiration for this modern solar and wind-powered eco home on 27.5 acres (11.2 hectare) of almost untouched land. The home was planned for easy living and minimal maintenance, even in the salty tropical environment of Bonaire.
The home is part of a planned community of 305 hectares (750 acres) called Lugá Alehá, which means a distant place in Papiamentu. Access to the development is via phone operated electric gates.
Lugá Alehá was created by a group of Dutch, American, Antillean, British and Canadian nature lovers in an effort to protect the land and enjoy it at the same time. There are 22 large lots (11 hectares or 27 acres each) and six smaller ones of about 5 hectares each. There are also several protected nature spots, all connected by the association´s own roads.
This 230 m2 / 2476 sq. ft. home, with all its modern amenities and solar-powered pool, has been featured in several magazine articles, including ´Caribbean Travel and Life´, ´Retirement Living´ and ´Home Power.´
Lay-out: The dining and living areas of the covered patio are adjacent to the open kitchen and are protected from the elements by a retractable glass wall. The gourmet kitchen has only three walls which makes it great for entertaining. The fourth wall can be rolled down to close up the house. The large kitchen features a six-burner gas range, microwave oven, dishwasher and super-efficient refrigerator/ freezer. It has a prep sink as well as a cleanup sink and extensive counter space. The door at the rear leads to a large pantry with storage shelves, a deep freezer and another refrigerator.
The home is currently configured with two large bedrooms, each with an adjoining bath, and a generous office and TV room which could easily be divided into two other bedrooms.
There is a laundry room and a workshop in the garage area.
The guest bedroom with bath and adjacent large room are located across the pool from the main living areas. The adjacent large room could also be used as living space.
A winding walkway from the back of the house leads to a beautiful rock formation that overlooks a massive green area and the ocean.
It´s an ideal location for sundown drinks and canapés.
