Granada house description

Casa Sonrisas.....loaded with charm (and will bring smiles).....from the historical colonial architecture that has been meticulously maintained to the inviting ambiance and conveniences of a perfect stay. Large private, corner home in a lovely neighborhood just 1 block from the pedestrian walkway and 3 blocks to the Main Square. Restaurants, shops, banks, Market, Lake Nicaragua all within a very short walk.

Four spacious bedrooms with bathrooms but individually unique. The main home hosts two beautiful master suites which are cooled by fans, large open kitchen, garden, patio, pool seating and hammocks for relaxation. The original kitchen was a separate room; it has been renovated to a lovely air conditioned Casita complete with master suite, extra sleeping space, full kitchen and its own patio and garden. The Garden Studio hosts the fourth bedroom loft style with air conditioning, full bath, living area and kitchenette. It, too, has its own separate entrance but is part of the main home and faces the garden.

There is a TV/DVD player in the Casita and in the main living area.

Uniquely rare to Granada is the large backyard/garden of this home complete with mango, avocado and banana trees along with a Victory Garden of herbs and local veggies.

The saltwater pool and soothing fountain are part of the main living area perfect for entertaining and playing.

                              Year Purchased: 2007

                              About the owner: I share my time between Granada and San Diego since discovering Granada in 2006....it took less than 24 hours once here to know that this is where I want to be 'whenever I can!' I love the life here and thoroughly enjoyed the renovation process of Casa Sonrisas. Upon entering the home 3 years ago, the potential was obvious but it was loaded with deferred maintenance and had many 'new additions' of the previous owners which did not quite fit. Especially fun was working around the challenges of the city's requirements for historical homes e.g. maintaining all existing adobe walls which in this home are 2 1/2 feet keeping it cool and breezy; exterior are all adobe and many interior walls as well.

                              Why the Owner Chose Granada:
                              The neighborhood and location of Casa Sonrisas. Residential and private yet close to everything. Granada captures the heart and this home carries on that spirit of happiness, warmth, ambiance, history....hence its name....House of Smiles. Casa Sonrisas has proven to be what my family hoped for...a fun home in which to gather, play and relax.

                              The Unique Benefits at this House:
                              Location (home sits on southeast corner of la Libertad and el Martirio - 3 blocks east of the park toward the lake), neighborhood, saltwater pool, outdoor pizza oven, fresh herb garden, privacy, design of main living area which is conducive to a family/friend gathering, maid service, gardener, washer/dryer.
