The price of this villa has been drastically reduced from $5.9 Million because the owner is ready to move to a smaller residence. At 77 years of age, this grand villa is simply too large for him and his wife. The villa contains approximately 1,858 m2 (20,000 s.f.) of living space and includes a master bedroom with two bedroom suites, an office between the two bedroom suites, walk-in closet and spacious master bathroom; four guest bedrooms with in-suite bath areas; a trophy room/art gallery that is roughed in as a potential fifth guest bedroom; in-law quarters below; two half-baths on each side of the main dining area; pool bath and shower: maids quarters with bath and shower; gardeners quarters with a bath and shower; and a wine cellar “cave” with a bath and shower below. The main villa also includes a reception and master dining area; media room; family room with second kitchen and a main kitchen. Off the family room is a BBQ terrace with direct access to the main dining area. The villa was constructed in 2002 and sits on 15,000 m2 (3.71 acres) of beautifully manicured lawns and landscaped gardens. For a "SITE PLAN" view, please click on "Virtual Tour" to the right. Located on the north coast of the Dominican Republic, Haciendas El Choco is an exclusive gated community that was once a 200 acre ranch. The development is situated beside the El Choco National Park that spans millions of square meters of the lush mountainside that provides excellent hiking, biking, horseback riding and amazing vistas. This community is unique because of the large size of the building lots. The tree-lined roads within Haciendas el Choco wind in curved patterns throughout the development and you get an immediate sense of openness. You also get the sense of intimacy because of the tropical trees and plentiful gardens lining the roads. The first notable thing -- or lack of it -- is the spread out and secluded feeling of each villa. Some villas have an ocean view while others have tropical mountainside views. It is also great for the equestrian lifestyle; some villas have 2 to 3 horse stables nestled into a secluded portion of the building site. There is also a community equestrian center near the tennis court down by the entry gate. The tranquil setting is situated only minutes away from beaches, golfing, water sports, and five star dining. An international airport is only twenty minutes away which has regularly scheduled service to and from the United States, Canada and Europe. The entire infrastructure includes a network of highways to tourism attractions and urban centers throughout the country.

I have developed many properties in the Dominican Republic and Haciendas El Choco No. 20 is my favorite. It is the culmination of experience gained by developing all my other properties. My favorite part of developing this project was the landscaping and tropical gardens. There is none other like it.
