The large master bedroom opens to a very large bathroom and closet with double sinks in a custom countertop lit by custom sconces, and certainly its best attribute is the huge garden shower, which affords a view to the pool area and grounds. This is one of the most unique bathrooms you will ever encounter.

The open-concept living room and dining room both look out to the pool area. The kitchen is a cook’s and entertainer’s dream, fully equipped with the highest quality appliances and cabinetry. There is a great pantry, extensive storage, extra-large convection oven, built-in five-burner stove that even includes a wok attachment, double stainless steel farmer’s sink, built in wine refrigerator, and a three-door, LG Inverter refrigerator with ice maker and in-door water and ice dispenser.

The huge, multi-leveled backyard is instantly welcoming. Step out of the kitchen onto a huge patio, which includes a covered portico and a spacious dining area. The architect and builder kept many of the old trees with the new landscaping, and while lush and tropical, is also simple and beautiful. This backyard feels like a park or a five-star resort.

Beyond the large patio, there is also a full bathroom including an outdoor shower. The outdoor space is highlighted by a uniquely shaped pool and another large portico, which defines a second patio space, where the outdoor kitchen is equipped with a full-size, built-in Weber grill, refrigerator, sink and ample under-counter storage. A third patio serves as a sun deck. Finally, at night, the lighting design for the property transforms the grounds into a tropical and romantic paradise.

Casa de La Rosa has side access to allow gardeners, pool service people and others do their jobs without tracking dirt inside.

Casa de La Rosa has new wiring and plumbing, is totally plumbed for solar panels, and has 14 brand-new high-end ceiling fans, four 18,000-BTU air conditioning units and two 24,000-BTU ACs.

The doors, windows, furniture and cabinetry are all cedar. The home includes all furnishings except the artwork.
