Valle De Bravo house description

The Encinal is a site of natural beauty that is located on top of a mountain, just 12 minutes from Valle de Bravo.

Located as it is at the top and one side of a cliff we have a beautiful view. Mountains are in the distance and the lake is below.

It is a quiet place, full of vegetation, with a rich warm climate, cooled by wind blowing in from the lake. At the Encinal we work with the principles of perma-culture. We are developing our own organic vegetable garden, fruit trees, and herb and spice garden.
Occupy up to 15 people comfortably, with three houses with bedrooms of double occupancy, or individual rentals. One house has a small pool.
Common gardens, a Tilapia fish pond, Sat.TV, washing machine, separate internet in all houses.
10-15 minutes from Valle de Bravo. Pickup at airport can be arranged.

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1993

          About the owner: I am a Canadian and have been living in Valle de Bravo for more then 30 years. My work is as wood worker, sculptor, painter and writer. Practise and lead courses in Tai Chi and Meditation. Studied in different universities such as Goshen College, University of Nigeria, University of Waterloo and the University of Toronto. Currently live on the property except when travelling.

          Why the Owner Chose Valle De Bravo:
          This property was an abandoned stone quarry when I acquired it. I wanted to develop an architecturally unique ecological living arrangement using to best advantage the materials at hand, and the lay of the land. The project was greatly aided by the view the area has, with one side overlooking the lake and another has a an escarpment on the edge. We capture our rain water, and recycle our grey water and the septic tanks are designed to recycle wastes. We have three operating dry toilets and all our hot water needs are supplied by solar energy.

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          We have spectacular views and if you have artistic sensibilities the houses have been enjoyed by many for their unique forms. Most of the structures are built in a combination of stone and cement construction. We have a sweat bath as well as a small pool and a large fish pond. The area is generally sunny and in the winter we have few days of cloud. Valle de Bravo has one of the most even temperatures on the planet as it never gets too cold or too warm.
