Welcome to Sea Horse Ranch, a collection of upscale and expansive homes on the in Cabarete, North Coast of the Dominican Republic. Drive into this expertly secured gated community, past gorgeous homes, horses from the community’s equestrian center grazing on picturesque green pastures, under the shade of mature trees, and over perfectly paved roads.
On a cul-de-sac parallel to the ocean you’ll find Villa Shangri-La, a place where life meets perfection.
Do you dream of peace?
Do you want to discover a deep relationship with nature?
Here you can become good friends with the ocean, bearing witness to her changing swells and daily tides. This home truly is a place to disconnect from or find connection with your self or with nature.
Every inch of this inspiring home is something to admire from its Mexican terracotta tile floors, mahogany woodwork, granite countertops, stainless steel kitchen, and marble bathrooms.
Designed by acclaimed Dominican architect Sergio Escarfullery, this Mediterranean style home is both grounding and luxurious. Surrounded by tropical plants and flowering cacti, the Caribbean turquoise blue ocean viewed from every window and reflected onto every surface, and the sounds of waves crashing onto its reef and birds chirping in the fruiting coconut trees that line the property.
From the road enter the impressive circular driveway lined with mature mango trees, coconut trees, half a basketball court and a covered carport next to the enclosed guardhouse. The oversized front door opens to reveal the tasteful interiors, 25 meter pool and the Atlantic ocean.
The property sits on over an acre of land, most of which is in the ocean front back yard. Here you will find a putting range, lap pool, BBQ area, covered tiki hut, a paved walking path along the ocean, a yoga deck, and 3 separate peaceful sitting areas. One is a bench right in front of the ocean, the other is a table and perfect for writing or reading, and the last is a secret sitting spot tucked away in the cactus garden.
Room by Room
To one side of the front entrance is a living room with large flatscreen TV, comfortable couches and lots of natural light. To the other side is a dining room that seats 10 under the antique chandelier hanging from the high ceiling.
Down the hallway is the master bedroom facing the ocean with its large walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom with his and her sinks, dual showers, enclosed toilet room, and separated vanity ideal for make-up. From the king size bed large wooden doors open to the private terrace and putting range.
While the home technically has 5 bedrooms, 2 of them are loft style bedrooms with 2 double beds below and 2 double beds above. These large loft bedrooms would be easy to enclose. Below the loft is an ensuite bathroom and walk in closet.
To the other side of the home is the kitchen, truly a chefs dream with its wrap around counter space and all the appliances needed to create delicious meals for a large group. Behind the kitchen are two more bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms. There is also a staff apartment complete with bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, laundry room and pantry. This is especially convenient when hosting large groups so the staff has a place to wash, prepare their own meals, rest, and keep the home running.
From the kitchen walk out to an outdoor dining room that seats 8 and is surrounded by plants and the Colombian mahogany columns seen throughout the home. The main room is a beautiful sitting space with an antique grand piano from which you can see all of the impressive backyard.
