With a captivating, spacious and modern, open-plan layout boasting two master bedrooms and two guest suites, this stunning lagoon front villa offers 5,624 sq. ft. (522.5 m2) of livable area and 202 ft (61.6 m) of waterfront in a quiet residential enclave on the Placencia Peninsula. Casa Balam’s main entrance takes you into a luxurious and spacious great room that provides an impressive living and dining area anchored by a fully equipped chef’s kitchen with commercial grade appliances wrapped in soaring floor-to-ceiling windows that invite tons of natural light and creates a bright and vibrant atmosphere. The home’s main guest suite sits on its southwest corner boasting a full ensuite bath and beautiful views of the pool deck and peaceful lagoon front outdoor space. Blackout curtains throughout the home ensure privacy and tranquility so you can have a peaceful night’s sleep. Rounding out the lower level you’ll find a second guest room with a shared guest bath opposite the main guest suite as well as an enclosed washroom and linen closet near the main entrance.
Massive sliding glass doors open to create a seamless transition from the main living area to the outdoor pool deck which provides a gorgeous 40 ft (12.2m) swimming pool set elevated within a massive concrete patio offering a great area to lounge, relax and entertain. The pool deck leads toward a 40 ft (12.2m) boat dock, equipped with a private boat customed with teak interior, plenty of storage compartments and other amenities for those weekend days boating around the peninsula.
Floating stairways lead to the mezzanine upper living area where one is greeted by that same aura of natural light leading to a central seating area flanked on both sides with its own luxurious master bedroom suite. The upper-level seating area provides a second living space that is great for entertaining guests or for a quiet place to sit and enjoy coffee and a good book. There is also a dedicated workstation that is custom built using repurposed concrete slab.
