About the Property

Retired and plain tired of the snow? Tired of the winter rains, summer fires, year-round struggle of traffic? Then perhaps you should consider this house in Baja, close to the little village of San Felipe.

We have lived here full time for two years, and have remodeled our house to American standards of wiring and plumbing. It is in a community just 5 miles north of town, where there is a large retiree population. Which means lots of things to do and lots of good places to eat. It's about 110 miles south of the border at Calexico/Mexicali over a very good highway. We have several options for medical care and an ambulance service north, if need be. It's an easy trip back to the border, and a run to Walmart is an easy day's trip.

Our house is in a private 'campo', which is a neighborhood owned by a local family. We pay rent on the land and own the home. Since we're on the beach, we also pay a yearly rent to the Federal government, which I have detailed below. The Campo is gated, with each resident having a coded card, and anyone going in or out is recorded on camera. It is very safe. In fact, we have never felt threatened anywhere in Baja, and we have traveled quite a bit, as well as staying very busy in and around San Felipe. We obtained our permanent resident visas in one year, and have made many great friends, both American retirees and Mexicans. Everywhere we have turned, we've found abundant offers of help, whether at the local market or at the Immigration office.

Now for the specifics of the house: Approx 1820 sq.ft. 2 regular bedrooms, plus one bed in the sunroom, which is 11' X 58', with large windows, overlooking the Sea of Cortez. It has a single car, attached garage, which includes a laundry area and is large enough for a full-sized auto, plus a four-wheeler and has a work bench along one wall. An additional car port is outside the entry door and patio. Two baths, both with shower. All floors, cabinet tops and baths are fully tiled. It has an 8' masonry block retaining wall (with 3' concrete foundation), and a smaller wall, enclosing an inner courtyard. Annual charge for the campo is slightly over $800.00 Annual charge for the Federal zone (beach) is less than $300, making the total yearly expense for the campo of slightly less than $100 per month. (Many other campos charge as much as $4000.00 annually.) This includes the road and gate maintenance. We have city water and city electricity, which is subsidized during the summer months. The house has four mini-split heat pumps, for a total of 6 tons. These are quite efficient. High ceilings throughout, with nice crown moldings and custom solid wood doors. Seven (7) ceiling fans with light fixtures. Large screened room, not counted in the heated/cooled square feet measurement. Custom brick BBQ and smoker. Outdoor kitchen and shower for after the beach. All appliances will transfer with the house; 2 refrigerators, laundry washer and drier, gas kitchen range, and dishwasher. Some other furnishings and furniture will be negotiable. Possible partial owner financing may be available. Unlike many houses here, we have multiple electrical outlets in each room. There is cell phone service and we have both satellite television and internet. The property is well landscaped with desert plants and several fruit trees, including orange, pomegranate, lime, mandarin. A 'grey water' recycling system waters all fruit trees automatically.

Finally, there is a slide show - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8bIv9vbQx9Y&feature=youtu.be - illustrating the house and surrounding area. Many photos are taken from our courtyard, facing the ocean, because of course, that's where we mostly live. We are selling only because of pressing medical expenses. The price for the house, with no furnishings other than the appliances as listed above, is $229,000. Close offers will be considered. If you have questions, or wish to arrange a viewing, please contact me directly by email.
