Tulum is known for having some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere in the world. What is not as familiar worldwide, but known much more locally, is that Tulum is known for its pristine Jungles. And inside these ancient areas, there are some absolutely amazing and fully sustainable housing communities. One of these communities is Los Arboles: one of the first and largest sustainable communities in Tulum and the Yucatan Peninsula.
The community itself consists of approximately 221 residential lots, each about 5 acres +/- in size, or 2 hectares. It is a guard gated community, complete with a community center and pool area, surrounded by virgin jungle. The local fauna and flora include ancient native species of trees, in which the community is named after and a sizable troop of Yucatan Spider Monkeys, one of the last remaining habitats for these endangered species. These little guys can be seen throughout the community on a regular basis.
Your private getaway in the jungle…
One house, in particular, caught my eye. It was conceived by master builder Chad Headrick, who has successfully constructed homes in several nearby areas, and now he built this 2,000 sq.ft. home in Los Arboles, which offers true “off the grid” capabilities, including a complete solar array on the rooftop, which will easily provide enough electricity for full time living. It also offers water through a rain catchment system which funnels all captured rainwater to an underground cistern, and an alternative septic system, which in turn feeds a garden area with its run-off moisture. See Chad talking about this beautiful home in this video.
This home is perfect for anyone looking for a private haven, for those looking for a place where they can wake up to the noises of nature and the chirping of the birds.
Even when it’s located in the middle of the jungle, the finishes inside the home are exactly as you would expect in any home built in the US or Canada, and the design is one of a kind featuring two sections: the main house with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and a detached casita that can be used as a third bedroom, an office or studio.
Take a look at this 360° Video Tour to explore this amazing home and its beautiful surroundings in the jungle.
On the ground floor of the main house, there’s a living room, dining room and kitchen, all in an open concept, and a spacious bedroom with its en-suite bathroom, Jacuzzi and walk-in closet. The kitchen includes a breakfast bar and an island, it has all granite surfaces and cabinets of locally sourced wood. Also on the ground floor is the detached casita, a laundry area and parking space for two cars.
In the first floor, there’s a second bedroom with a full bathroom and an amazing rooftop terrace with views of the surrounding jungle in every direction. This home comes fully finished and ready to move!
