Listing RemarksIf you're looking for a great start in the country, then look no further. This charming, custom cabin has what you need to live in comfort and enjoy the great outdoors. Set back, down a long, private drive, the living space is a soaring artistic retreat at 2nd-floor level. Custom guava railings accent the stairway and spacious, rear lanai where you can enjoy gazing over your property or having a relaxing evening. Rope work accents and LED light rope wrap around the lanai making you feel like you're on your own sailing vessel.
Step through the slider doors into the cabin interior. The first room is setup to be used as a kitchen/living area and is plumbed for installation of a sink; there's even a pet door.. The bedroom is next with a beautiful, painted ceiling and custom, built-in shelves. The solar inverter is also housed in this room, along with a built-in car stereo that is cleverly used to play your favorite tunes, and is connected to surround sound speakers throughout. Just off the bedroom is a full bath, with tub/shower combo, toilet and sink.
Downstairs you will find a 20-ft shipping container as part of the base of the cabin that can be used for storage or additional living/work space. A utility sink and start of an outdoor shower is on the left and a fenced, yard area with chicken coop is to the right. Years ago, a previous owner used the grounds as a guava orchard and several trees remain, along with many new plantings done by the current owner. Ti plants, hibiscus, various palms and other colorful plantings line the driveway. Enjoy a peaceful, nature walk on the park-like trail that runs from the back of the old carport structure to the rear of the property and back again.
Off-grid living via solar offers independence and the Seller has installed two solar setups. One runs the main cabin amenities and the other runs the water pump. Electric is also available from the grid. Improvements are unpermitted but well-built.
