Located on a large, 1800 square meter lot, this 3-bedroom, 2-bath breezy Dominican Republic Solar House shares a quiet country lane with several other similar homes.
The location of the villa assures cooling breezes and lovely views to the surrounding hills. The house has a Hacienda look with light-colored plaster walls and dark windows protected by substantial canopies. Mature plantings and large areas of lawn complete the picture.
Though grid-connected, the breezy Dominican Republic Solar House also features 12 large solar panels feeding a substantial battery bank via an inverter. This lessens the load during peak hours and assures energy independence during occasional power outages. The system is able to operate many of the villa’s electrical needs by itself.
Luperon, less than an hour from Puerto Plata’s international airport and only 45 minutes from the city itself, is still a quiet town with deep roots in both fishing and farming. Luperon’s large, protected harbor has gained favor in recent decades as a top-notch hurricane hole.
Winter often sees more than 100 cruising yachts at anchor in Luperon, giving the town a cosmopolitan flair. The area is beginning what will soon become a major development scenario that will make any investment here a smart one as future prices rise.
