“This one-of-a-kind timberframe home, appropriately named “Villa “Frangipani”, is located on the cul-de-sac road which goes along the most beautiful beach on the coast of Ecuador.  The row of custombuilt homes along this road are inhabitated by American/Canadian retirees to 90%. This personally built earthquake-safe home faces the ocean and allows you to fall asleep to the sound of waves and to begin your morning with an ocean dip and/or walk on the beach which stretches for miles. You might want to walk into the fishing community of San Jacinto for a slow and delicious breakfast or to do some shopping. 


The construction of Villa Frangipani began in 2011, although the owners, an Ecuadorean builder and a Swedish World Banker, bought the land in 1999. The house is a soaring network of beams, rafters and braces which are joined with glovelike precision, using wooden pegs. No nails in this house! All timber is local hardwood (Tabebuia crysantha). Every room is very large and allows for a spacious environment. A few walls on first floor are made of brick while the majority are built with a 2×4 structure, bamboo, chicken wires and then plastered beautifully in an ondulated manner. On second floor, the walls are made of bamboo and/or plastered cement blocks. All appliances are imported Whirlpool and all granite is imported Brazilian “Kilimanjaro”.


The first floor (315 m2) includes a very large kitchen, dining room and living room, study and social bathroom, entrance hallway with stairway and waterfall wall, surrounded by patio terrace on three sides. First floor also includes two storage rooms and a staff room with full bath. Upstairs (315 m2), includes four very large bedrooms with walk-in closets, three full baths, large hallway and enormous terrace on three sides. Outbuilding includes four storage rooms (which can easily be converted into b&b). Large garage area, outdoor cocking area, including oven. 


Acquire this marvelous home for yourself or turn into a business like a exclusive b&b or restaurant!”
