Located in the quiet, idyllic Swanix Bay sub-division, Casa del Risa (House of Laughter) is a whimsical home that has it all – panoramic ocean views of the water yet sheltered from the East wind and surrounded by indigenous foliage.
Enjoy bird-watching and beach combing in restful surroundings just minutes from the town of Utila where the stores, dive shops and many restaurants are readily accessible. Casa del Risa includes a total of 0.382 acres, providing the opportunity to expand the house with the additional land in the neighboring lot included in the sale.
This eye-catching 1 bedroom, 1.5 bathroom home has high, wood beamed ceilings to help capture the ocean breeze and was built to allow bright sun-drenched rooms sheltered from the strong east wind that frequently visits this side of Utila. Spacious open concept living, dining and kitchen area on the third floor, plus a guest half bath allow for easy circulation of guests. With amazing views of the water and waves on Swanix Bay beach, the front and rear deck allow even more space for entertaining, and guests will enjoy the many arts and craft style details built into Casa del Risa.
The second floor is the master suite, with a large sleeping area, screened porches and a truly charming en suite bath. Enjoy lying in the soaking tub with native stone enclosure and sweeping views of the sea. Master bath has hand-crafted stained glass double window, and a glass bowl sink with a custom spout. Tiled floors throughout make clean-up a snap and provide a pleasing design element.
First floor includes bodega with garage, laundry area and lots of storage space.
Casa del Risa is truly a home of laughter and love, built for a couple but easily enlarged and expanded. Don’t miss this rare opportunity for a uniquely built home with panoramic ocean views!
