About the Property
House, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 2-6)
Imagine your Nicaraguan getaway set in a beautifully unique and tranquil location… The warm evening air filled with the sound of cascading water, eating your meals in an open-air garden, walking a few blocks to the charming Central Park…
This Spanish Colonial house was fully restored in 2007. It is located in a wonderful neighborhood of Granada City, Nicaragua. The exquisite details of this three-bedroom home include beautifully intricate colonial tiled floors, Spanish architecture, an interior courtyard with a peaceful garden ornamented with a Spanish fountain and a volcanic rocks cascade to create a perfect peaceful sound.
The hand carved Nicaraguan furnishing, integrated arches between the living-room area and the corridors give the house a very open and airy ambience and allows the eye to enjoy all the exquisite details that surround the interior of the house.
The layout is open-air style. The kitchen is set between the corridors surrounding the courtyard and the living-room area. The two bedrooms are tucked away on the first floor sharing one full bathroom. Both rooms are equipped with full size beds and air conditioning.
The Master Suite has a queen size bed, a private elegant full bathroom, spacious closets, air conditioning, and is located on the second floor. It has access to a porch surrounded by beautiful verandahs to enjoy sitting down having your breakfast, relaxing, preparing for the day, drinking the excellent Nicaraguan coffee, listening to the birds and the sound of the beautiful morning filtering down into the courtyard.
One of the most enchanting features of Casa Don Carlos is on the 3rd floor. The “ Mirador” offers a beautiful view of the Mombacho Volcano with all the wild hills which allows you to see although from afar, the northwest of the oldest Colonial city of the American continent..
Casa Don Carlos is the perfect place to call your home as you explore this rich and beautiful country and begin your memorable vacation. Although described as Colonial, this beautiful house presents some modern characteristics that were added during reconstruction by the owner which is a very talented architect. Inspired by the beautiful Greek beach houses he added an interior arch between the living-room and corridors thus creating a more open and exotic space. The kitchen area moved from the back of the house toward the corriodors allowing a more cozy cooking atmosphere surrounded by family and friends. Moving the kitchen toward the patio needed some adjustments, therefore this house does not have a dining room area. A more modern note to this colonial design is given by the addition of a large counter and full bar that can be used as dining space. The patio is also equipped with a full bar so that you may enjoy a relaxed evening atmosphere without the need to go into the house to make your drinks. You will find this re-design very pleasing, combining perfectly the colonial style with the modern, adequate for the new living standards of our times. ~

Our house is located just a couple of blocks from the Farmer's Market, which is such a big attraction for everyone visiting Granada. It's so much fun to walk to the market and meet the locals. While not precisely in the heart of Granada City it offers that extra privacy and quiet, one needs after a long day full of fun activities. It's still within walking distance of all the lovely places to hang out such as: Parque Central, Pre Colombian Museum, The Cathedral and La Calzada. I guess you just have to come see for yourself!
Year Purchased: 2005
About: My name is Oscar R. Goussen native of Granada Nicaragua, I was born 1 block away from Casa Don Carlos and the name of my house was given in memory of my father. I live in Redwood City California with my wife Anca and our son Ancarlos.
Why Granada, Nicaragua:
I bought this house and restored it as a Vacation House because in my opinion Calle Palmira is the gate to Mombacho Volcano and to the Isletas de Assese, close to the Farmer's market, Supermarkets and Downtown. It's probably one of the best locations in Granada as it is not quite in the heart of the City yet it's so close to all best places.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The main benefit when I spend my vacations here is the peacefulness and relaxed atmosphere that soothe my mind, body and soul as a perfect therapy session. My eyes enjoy the view of the house with its elegant details and the amazing scenery. My vacations never seem long enough and I can't wait to come back to this gorgeous, one of a kind home.
