About the owner: My wife and I bought this house the year after we married. 4 kids (17,16,14 and 11) and 16 1/2 years later we finally bought a bigger house and moved a block and a half away. I worked as a chef for 19 years and Evy is a lawyer specialized in Real Estate leasing.
Why the Owner Chose San Juan: We have lived in Old San Juan for 20 years and love it. It's a quirky neighborhood with all kinds of people, lots of restaurants and bars and a unique atmosphere after 500 years of people living in this town.
You can walk to a cafe for breakfast or three blocks to the supermarket for ingredients. The forts and other historic sites are all within 15 minutes leisurely walking distance as are shops, boutiques and museums.
We bought this house because it just felt right when we walked in. The light in the afternoon is perfect. Old San Juan properties tend to have all kinds of nooks and small tight spaces. This house is well distributed and comfortable.
When we moved, we decided to share this house with guests so they to could enjoy the Old City like locals. After a complete renovation, this house is the perfect home base for adventures in San Juan and day trips all over the island.
There is a beach about a 10 minute walk away that few know about and dozens of beaches within 20-30 minutes driving distance.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Few houses in Old San Juan are as well preserved as this 350 year plus old one. The Institute of Culture of Puerto Rico is responsible for the conservation of Our historic zones and certified this home as more than 70% original.
There are a few of the original door frames with the Cappuccino style hinges still and the ceilings are the original exposed beams and brick construction typical of the Spaniards in the new world. Live like our ancestors did except with running hot and cold water and wonderful air conditioning.
