My home was built 15 years ago. My idea was to recreate the Sonoran Mexican style. I had plan to retire here, but things changed. I made it as accessible as possible for handicapped, all one level with doors wider than average and safety bars along the toilets and showers.
The house is about 1560 square feet, with 12 foot high beamed ceiling and terra cotta colored tiled floors. The front of the house faces west, with a covered porch, Sonoran patio furniture and desert plans.
The entrance is an antique weathered door that leads to a pleasant hall. On the left is the first bedroom, large, and with a large closet, an office desk and twin beds. On the right side of the entrance hall is the first bathroom, with Mexican tiled shower (walk in) and Mexican decorated sink.
At the end of the hall, on the left, is a large Mexican tiled kitchen with glassed cabinets, a window facing the bay, gas stove and electric refrigerator. From the kitchen you enter a laundry room with a washer and dryer and plenty of storage space. A Mexican tiled breakfast bar has two large Mexican stools. Opposite the kitchen is the dinning room, furnished with a colorful dinning set and Mexican decorations.
The well lite livingroom (has two large sliding doors) has comfortable furniture and Mexican decorations, some of which are antiques. Those two sliding doors lead to a back patio, which provides the most appealing aspect of the whole house: THE VIEW!! The patio faces west towards the ocean and the bay which day or night is gorgeous. Just think of sitting watching the Ensenada lights at night hold a local wine glass!!!
Now the master bedroom. There is a sliding door that faces the back patio. There are comfortable reading chairs and a double bed. On the way to the second bathroom you pass a walk-in closet and then you enter the Mexican tiled bathroom with a walk-in shower.
The back yard is fence (to let your dog run loose). Along the side of the house is a cemented incline walk to the cellar which contains a propane gas tank and a “grey” water container to water the plants in back. This cellar would make a wonderful hobby room or work studio.
It has a clear title with no difficulties for American ownership. The neighborhood is mostly retired American and Mexican families. We all contribute a monthly fee to a security company to guard our properties.
THE GENERAL LOCATION
Ensenada is about one hour south of San Diego. The toll road is safe and beautiful. Ensenada, I consider to be very attractive, with fine restaurants and world famous Valle de Guadalupe, with is gourmet restaurants, boutique hotels, and wine growing.
The weather in Ensenda varies from th 60’s to the 90’s year round.
My house, which is on a hilltop is generally cooler, and the sliding doors provide good cross ventilation. Puerto Escondido (which means hidden port) is one half hour south of Ensenada (heading towards La Bufadora (the blow hole). La Bufadora, with its fish specialities is 15 minutes from the house. Heading back to Ensenda you must pass Maneadero (a small town) with a very good supermarket (Calimax) with American and Mexican products, (and really good Mexican sweet breads!) If you like menudo or pozole or tamales, Maneadero is the place. About 5 minutes away from Maneadero, heading back to town, is a country golf course open to the public. Back at La Bufadora, you can rent kayaks or go diving (or even fishing). From the house the beaches are ten minutes away.
There is even a “secret” beach near the house!!!! And good hiking areas.
