Year Purchased: 2009
About: Hello everyone! Now that you've seen my property in pictures, I want you to know a little bit about me...I was born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, but soon my parents moved to the U.S., where I started school during my early years. A few years later my family relocated back in this beautiful Island, Puerto Rico. As a kid, I quickly began enjoying weekends at my grandfather's farm, where I had a pony, a dog, chickens and loved camping out in a tent. I believe that's when I first began dreaming of some day having my own special place where I could keep doing what I love most, joined by family members and friends.
As I grew up, I attended a military academy during my high school years, where I was honored with an athletic scholarship. As you see, I have some military experience ( through the R.O.T.C. program teached those days ). I'm also a sports fan, as well. Then I went to college where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Communications and a Master's Degree in Business Adm.& Marketing. After working for 31 years in a major corporation in P.R., most of the time as Director of the Communications Dept. ( managing Press- Media, Advertising,Public Relations & Marketing); on 2013, I finally retired.
Still young and with many plans ahead, I decided to share this beautiful place with others. In a short period of time, I've been so blessed and honored by having guests from countries around the world such as England, U.S.A., Australia, South Korea, Canada and of course, PR.,among others.
As you leaned from me, I never quit searching my dream of having my special place..., and believe me, dreams do come true!
This home is a 'dream house', but you don't have to wait years to enjoy it. Make your dream come true at Casa Lago, I'll be more than happy to have you as my guest. Sincerely, Pedro.
Why Utuado: This house is my dream come true! Since I bought it, I started restoring it to make it our 'special place'. Joined by my wife and daughter, as well as family members and friends, here we really spend quality time. It is common that visitors and friends end up staying overnight. Maybe is because the beauty and relaxed atmosphere you'll experience once here, but they simply don't want to leave; and I don't blame them at all ! Now, I am more than happy to open the doors of my home and share with others this great place.
The Unique Benefits at this Chalet: The beauty of the nature that surrounds this wooden Lake Front House, combined with the peaceful and country sights Utuado has to offer.
