What a stunner of a home! The owner is the architect and builder with many years of experience and you can tell when you walk through this home. Casa METKA is a minimalistic style modern contemporary masterpiece. Standing in front of the more than 30 meter long facade of the home you can tell that this is no ordinary home. The exterior walls of the house are made of huge beige colored specialy designed solid blocks of cement making the the house stand out from the first glimpse. The heavy big pivot entrance door takes you into the open living room with floor to ceiling sliding windows that open up to the lush garden and its big private swimming pool. The owners used the open space only as a relaxing and tv area without having a dining table, which they prefer having on the covered terrace in the garden. A big polished concrete wall separates the living area from the fully equipped, neat minimalistic kitchen with a very big silestone kitchen island and breakfast bar. The kitchen opens up through sliding door onto the covered terrace where you have the garden/dining table, a hanging relaxing bench and automated shade shutters for when the sun hits the terrace. Passing the kitchen you come to the groundfloor bedroom with it's beautiful bathroom that has a jacuzzi with view of the garden. This bathroom opens up to the hallway as well. The owner used a lot of natural wood of fine quality giving the hallway, bed and bathroom a kind of warm Suiss Alpes style feeling. There's two staircases in the house, one next to the kitchen taking you up to the first floor with a clean straight hallway connecting the two bedrooms. Both are spacious and with their own bathrooms, and the master also has a walk-in closet. The other staircase is located in the living area and takes you down into the big open basement where you find the pool table and gym area but which could be converted easily into an incredible TV area and at the back of the open basement you have a 4th smaller bedroom with en suite bathroom, which the owners use as an office space. The garden of the house is lush and fenced off giving it a lot of privacy and the 530 m2 lot behind the garden is also from the owner and can be included at a reduced price to the purchase, like a package deal, if the buyer wants to make the garden bigger, build a guest house or just keep the trees as a privacy barrier. The garden has an irrigation system to keep the grass and plants in optimum shape. The swimming pool is with its 10m by 4 m pretty big and is heated so in winter months you can always enjoy optimal temperature for swimming or relaxing. it can actually warm the pool up to 38 degrees celcius making it like a huge warm bath in the garden on the chilliest of nights. Next to the house you have a staircase taking you down into the machine area with the osmosis water treatment tanks, pool heater, pumps and filters, ac units, ... The house has an underground stationary gas reservoir of 1000 Lt and two big water cisterns of 20.000 Lt each, one with regular water used for irrigation of the garden and one with treated, drinkable water for the house. The house is located in a private circuit within the safe gated community of Selvamar, just north of the city of Playa del Carmen. With a double security filter at the entrance and a third security filter of the circuit you will feel very comfortable living your caribbean dream in your beautiful villa. The gated community also has a reknown Montessory school on the premises, a little grocery store and coffe shop, walking trails, etc. A 10 min bycicle ride takes you to the beautiful Xcalacoco beach with little restaurants and the amazing Mungata beachclub.
