Panama Shipping Container Home El Valle
This is not your ordinary home… there is nothing ‘ordinary’ or ‘mundane’ about this home! This home is not for everyone…this home is for those people who want individuality… style… bespoke… custom made… diverse… for those people who would find the norm, way too boring!
On your drive up towards El Valle, you will experience some of the most stunning scenery… at kilometre marker 23, on the very cusp of the Volcano tucked down a private side road with easy access, you will find this amazing and alternative home… made from Shipping Containers!
The moment you drive through the electric gate onto the gravelled driveway, you realise you have stumbled upon a little bit of Heaven… Tranquil scenery… gorgeous, well maintained and easy to maintain, private gardens and an entrance that welcomes you with open arms… Travel up the few impeccably tiled and thoughtful steps…
A beautiful, open glass entrance, leads you into a wondrous, light, airy living area, with quirky design features and stunning, ‘one off’ art… cleverly hidden led lighting, hand-made industrial furniture and features, seamlessly intermingled with plush comfort… this home comes fully furnished and completely ready to move into. * some antique furniture and personal art not included. The lounge area has wall to ceiling glass and overlooks the back garden area… This room is the heart of this home and everything leads from here…
One of the biggest and most amazing things you will notice is the freshness… cool air flows throughout this meticulously planned and designed home… there are no unhealthy A/C units with their high electricity costs… there are not even any fans! That is how consciously this home has been built…
On walking through the large living and dining area, you can step straight into a stunning kitchen, nothing has been left to chance… high end appliances… hand-made cabinets made from a mixture of Caoba wood (African Mahogany) Aluminium, glass and waxed concrete work tops with hidden led lighting… soft close fittings, unlimited cooking and preparation area… hand-made glass lamps… ample light and fresh air… huge industrial wall to wall larder and storage spaces make this a kitchen to die for… there is even a quiet TV nook/den area, a small office and a quirky half bathroom.
Back in the living area you can head up the industrial style, perfectly spaced, stairs with the hidden led lighting placed under the bannister rail… bringing you to a wall of open glass offering you the most stunning views of the garden and surrounding nature… this mezzanine studio area is such a lovely space and could have so many uses… a bedroom… play area… office… studio… the options are limitless… but this area then leads out to a huge, upstairs, under roof terrace… giving you yet more stunning views of your surroundings… this is a social area… BBQ… lazy days and quiet evenings… this area is anything you want it to be…
On the opposite side of the lounge area you enter a separate part of the house… First for convenience is a super little half bathroom with funky glass sink and mirrors… Enter the master bedroom suite which has its own private balcony area… and it is easy to imagine quiet morning breakfasts or evening cocktails… the dreamy Master bed has been custom-made from wrought Iron and is fit for a King and Queen… continue your journey and you will find a gorgeous and cleverly designed ‘wet room’ style shower area… separate toilet area and separate wash hand basin area with mixes of the industrial with glass and stone… Opposite this area you will find a completely self-contained ‘safe room’ this super-sized walk in wardrobe contains a personal belongings safe, fans for air circulation, untold storage space and can only be entered by a key code… making this room inaccessible if needs be and effectively could be used as a panic room.
Continue your walk past the master en-suite and you discover a room that is way too big and nice for laundry and other menial wash day tasks… but a pleasure to spend time in!
To continue the interior circuit there is a lovely guest bedroom which has been meticulously designed with an almost hidden en-suite bathroom and separate entrance/exit to the house.
Throughout this exquisite home attention to detail is obvious… the quirky design features hold your interest and the connection between shipping container/industrial/art/beauty/wood/glass/nature is incredibly mindful…
When walking throughout the gardens surrounding this home, an easy path leads you past flowers, trees and palms… you will find antique lamps from the canal zone and custom-made bird baths… areas made ready for the rains of the wet season… even the roof line which enables a super water feature during the tropical rains…
