The house we’ve bought is in on a hillside in Bo. Cruces, between the 412 and 414 ‘main’ roads. It was only built in 2005 and sits on a 2-acre plot. We’re about a 10 minute drive from downtown Rincón and the nearest beaches.

The top storey is already beautifully finished and we will be closing in the lower level. This will be Miri’s pottery studio with views out into the valley. There’s already a finished bathroom down there, which makes it ideal for when she has ‘students’ in the studio. Part of the front half of the lower level will be closed in to make additional living space (aka Nick’s games room). Here is where we’re going to have the big screen TV, pool table and a fridge for our Medalla Light’s… 🙂
The ‘basement’ half-level will be finished and made into a kiln room, laundry room and large storage room.

The house is in a great spot, with a glimpse of the ocean from the balcony and a better view from the roof. The following video was taken from the roof of the house.

    Dearest Miri and Nick!
    I was just showing Kiley and Quinn your new digs in PR. Kiley wanted to know if you had a hot tub on the bottom floor. Party girl, just like her Mama. Quinn likes the rooster in the video and the horseys in the valley. Kiley said, “Tell them I will be very happy to meet you.” Apparently, they don’t remember the first time. Gotta run, they want to watch the video for the third time! Best wishes on your adventure!!!

    Dear Kiley and Quinn: We will be very happy to (re) meet you too and hope you can come visit us in our new home! I imagine we could arrange visits with the chickens, roosters and maybe even the horses next door!
