About the Property

3 Bedroom, 3 Bath Home With Ocean and Mountain Views

Casa Molendera is a hacienda style home located one hour north of Puerto Vallarta’s International Airport. Nestled in the hills overlooking the Pacific, in the state of Nayarit, the home is located just above the town of Ursulo Galvan, a traditional Mexican pueblo. It is a 5-minute drive to beautiful Lo de Marcos beaches, local shopping, and restaurants. It is within fifteen minutes north of the towns of San Pancho and Sayulita. The spacious three-bedroom, three-bath home, located in the gated community of Rancho Escondido, a 12-acre retreat, offers the perfect combination of rustic Mexican style and modern comfort.

Named for Diego Rivera’s painting, La Molendera, (The Corn Grinder) which is rendered in Mexican Talavera tile above the professional stove in the kitchen, the home is an oasis of beauty and serenity. It features a spacious cooking area, 11-foot Talavera-tiled island and tiled sink, additional stainless steel vegetable sink with purified water, a microwave, and stainless steel refrigerator with purified water and ice. A large dining room, pergola patio, skylights, and washer-dryer in the laundry area add functionality to complement the design.

Eight-paneled glass doors open from the spacious living area onto the west-facing patio, offering an expansive view of the ocean, while equally spectacular mountain views surround the house. Each room offers terra cotta floor tiles and is furnished with artisanal woodwork and Mexican folk art, from the hand carved headboards in the bedrooms, to the woven huipil pillows and accents throughout the house, each offers a combination of comfort and character.

Talavera tiled baths, outdoor and indoor showers, handcrafted copper sinks, indoor fountain, and in-ground swimming pool complement the rustic style of the house, while a 46” TV and entertainment center, WiFi connection, outdoor mini bar and built-in gas barbecue offer comfort and access within easy reach.

The location of the gated property provides unparalleled vistas, proximity to an authentic Mexican village, and the beautiful experience of nature as it is meant to be, in an area rich in agricultural resources, mango, lime trees, and swaying palms. It is the perfect place to unplug and unwind. For a taste of uncommon luxury on the road less traveled, Casa Molendera is everything you are seeking in a vacation home.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Living in Mexico and New York has offered us a balance of life experience that can't be beat. I have the opportunity to do wood working and play music and Nancy can write and create art. Traveling throughout Mexico has been our pleasure for the past 25 years and we continue to enjoy the best of our two worlds.

Why the Owner Chose Úrsulo Galvan, Nay., Mexico:
After many visits to Mexico, we fell in love with this area and decided to build our home here. Beautiful weather, friendly villagers, ocean breezes and serenity are a given, while proximity to a wide range of activities, including water sports, fishing, a variety of beaches, plus local markets and festivals complement the tranquility of the home's hillside location.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We were fortunate to find a local builder with an amazing sense of the traditional Mexican Hacienda style. We worked hand in hand to create a home with warmth and visual appeal. Our 3 bedroom hacienda home is uniquely decorated with local folk art and hand crafted furnishings, terracotta floors, and custom Talavera tiles throughout. A vaulted entryway leads to the spacious living room, which opens up to an expansive view of the pool area, garden, and ocean beyond.
