RAVEN'S NEST DESCRIPTION

PERFECTION ON CULEBRA ISLAND......... GORGEOUS CARIBBEAN ARCHITECTURE.

HOUSE WITH POOL ON A ONE ACRE SITE WITH INDESCRIBABLE VIEWS.

FOUR (4) BEDROOMS AND FOUR (4) BATHROOMS ON VERY PRIVATE 1 ACRE SETTING.

CASUAL ELEGANCE AND FANTASTIC OUTDOOR LIVING WITH POOL, PATIO AND COVERED PORCH.

TERRIFIC OCEAN BREEZES. AND CLOSE TO TOWN AND BEACHES!

ALL FURNITURE IS BRAND NEW. IMMACULATE, BRIGHT AND FRESH!

Our home is situated high on the hillside above Punta Melones Beach, overlooking the bay to the east and the ocean to the south and west. The location of the house affords you the cooling breezes of the Caribbean and the views from sunrise to sunset.

As this is our family’s second home we have taken special care to make it very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. The open floor plan of the inside as well as outside living spaces allows for true relaxation. As we are designers we have brought to the house wonderful original artwork and the quality of the furnishings is uncompromised.

Every room has a ceiling fan so you can sleep to the sound of the sea and awaken to the song of the birds. However, if you feel the need all the bedrooms are air conditioned for added comfort.

KITCHEN:

The kitchen is a custom chef’s kitchen with top of the line Jenn Air appliances. The propane stove has two ovens one small and one large for different cooking needs. The large capacity French door refrigerator holds enough to keep the family happy and is complemented with two freezer drawers and an icemaker. There is an abundance of cabinetry that houses everything that is needed. The cherry wood and the tiled counters create a professional look that is only outshined by the beautiful Le Creuset and Revere cookware and the unbreakable Cabo dishes and glassware. In addition to all the utensils required to prepare food there is a newly filled spice rack and generally the basics such as olive oil, etc. Our grandson, Oscar Waldman painted the scene of Cayo Norte when he visited at Christmas.

Off the kitchen is the laundry area and broom closet. The washer / dryer is for your use and is capable of small loads.

FAMILY LIVING AREA:

The seating area is very relaxed with a Seagrass sofa brimming with throw pillows. Four chairs, two Ceylon teak armchairs and two Seagrass wing chairs, add to the conversation or TV watching depending on your wishes. If you need more seating there are two Sanibel benches in the entry hall that can be multi purposed. There are unique compass and rope spool side tables and plenty of interesting lighting. The still life oil painting of flowers by Elizabeth Congdon is a striking contrast to the subtle colors of the upholstery. The Sony TV has surround sound, a DVD player and with the Dish TV there is also Sirius Radio. The French door unit adds light and cross ventilation making for a wonderfully cool place in the shade.

DINING AREA:

The large rustic pine harvest table is surrounded by blue and tan bistro chairs and there are two added counter stools so that you can keep the cook company or seat the kids there to dine. On the wall is a wonderful painting of pears by Katie Trinkle-Legg. The two French door units add so much cooling breeze that you may find it necessary to close them at mealtime.

MASTER SUITE:

King size West Indies canopy bed carved to look like bamboo, with two Barbados bachelor chests, is the focal point of the room. The two wharf scene oil paintings by David Lazarus and the San Juan’s Butterfly People art box create a wonderful room to wake up in. The view out one side is the garden and the other is the ocean.

There is a large closet area as you enter the room.

The bathroom is fully tiled with a double sink vanity with doors and drawers for storage. The walk in shower is complete with a soap and shampoo shelf, a tiled bench and window with the ocean view.

GUEST SUITE:

King size Havana mahogany four-poster bed has intricate turned legs and two Islandia bachelor chests on either side. The dark framed floral oil paintings and the dhories opposite the bed complement the view out the window to the ocean.

There is a closet in the room.

The bathroom is tiled and the vanity has drawers and a door to hold all your needs. The window looks out to the ocean. The walk in shower has a shampoo and soap shelf.

BUNK ROOM:

Two sets of naturally finished maple bunk beds, with clip on lights for after dark reading. There is a closet and two whicker bureaus. The large windows gain a view to the garden. The animal prints on the walls are a bit of folly.

BATHROOM ACROSS THE HALL:

Tile and glass door make the shower in this bathroom unique. The vanity has drawers and a door and the top is tiled. There’s even an ocean view across the hall painted by Loretta Loder.

LANAI DINING AREA:

The Ceylon whitewashed table and chairs are arranged for the view and the breeze to the east and south. The chairs are cushioned for comfort. Seating for 6.

There is a Weber stainless steel propane grill and the tools to BBQ.

LANAI SEATING AREA:

This is my favorite spot to sit in the morning and have my coffee and watch the birds, the boats or read. In the evening you can watch the sunset and entertain in comfort on the cushioned armchairs and ottomans. Seating for 6.

DOWN THE EXTERIOR STAIRWAY TO THE POOLSIDE BEDROOM SUITE:

Queen size Adeline wooden bed and Asian hand carved bachelor chests. Flower prints, a whimsical metal mirror and the window view of the ocean complete the room.

The bathroom is tiled and the vanity has drawers and a door for storage. The window looks out to the ocean. The walk in shower has a shampoo and soap shelf.

The closet is sized appropriately for two.

SWIMMING POOL:

The pool is 8’ x 40’ built into the hillside affording a wonderful view of the ocean, Vieques Island and Cayo Luis Pena. Relax in the chaise lounges, dine at the round café table or sit in the swivel chairs. The lush tropical vegetation and two large umbrellas keep you in shade at any time of day.

OUTDOOR SHOWER:

You are encouraged to wash off salt and sandy feet before entering the pool or the house.

BEACH AND POOL TOWELS, BEACH CHAIRS, COOLER AND BEACH BAGS

THERE IS A WHOLE HOUSE WATER FILTER, SO NO NEED TO BUY BOTTLED WATER.
