I'm selling my beautiful little hideaway home in a kitesurf and surfers paradise! After 9 years living in this beautiful little fishing village I am ready for something new. which means my beautiful home is up for grabs. for someone also looking towards an exciting new chapter in life! As I'm not planning on buying anywhere straight after. the house comes partially furnished which some darn right funky furniture and of course all the usual things you will need in the kitchen to host a new home party! It is a refurbished village property built by a well known architect from the region in the 70's. set along a beautiful tree lined road in a very quiet and very lush part of the village. The surrounding palm trees. blue skies and tropical bird song give it a very Brazilian feel! I haven't done much with the garden. there is giant palm tree. a huge cashew nut tree (that gives delicious fruit!) some jasmine and the plenty of space to build a swimming pool. or put down a nice lawn. You can hear the ocean (which is a 2min walk from the house) from your bed or from a hammock on the terrace. The house is a 2 minute walk to the nearest beach. restaurant and shop. The main square (with the larger supermarkets) is 10/15 minute walk along the beach or the road. There are two bedrooms in the house. 1 up and 1 down. the downstairs room has built in wardrobes and handy under bed storage. The kitchen and dining area are open plan separated by a breakfast bar. the kitchen also has a window/hatch to the large terrace wraparound dining or outdoor living area. I have tried to keep the original feel of the house to not loose the character. which means exposed beams throughout and some beautiful tiles I found hidden under layers of paint. There is plenty of scope to extend the property if you should wish. adding further rooms upstairs. even the living area downstairs could be turned into bedrooms and a new terrace built into the garden. The bathroom is downstairs and I have just put in a new tiled floor. glass shower cubical and loo. Some of the furniture was shipped over from the UK and had previously been used in my fathers (Animals bassist and Hendrix producer Chas Chandler) Portland St recording studio in the conference room. So if anyone after a bit of rock and roll memorabilia might be excited to know that a lot of famous people have been sat around the dining table pictured. if only wood could talk. I'm sure it would have some great stories. The house has it's own water supply that comes from underground springs. Taiba is a beautiful traditional fishing village in northern Brazil. roughly 80mins drive from Fortaleza and the international airport. Situated 3 degs south of the equator it's bikini weather all year round. but the constant trade winds provide a welcome breeze so the heat dent get too much! I am a kitesurfer and this has been my training grounds. so anyone who practices the sport will love the spot. with a flat water lagoon and also great waves in the bay. Taiba is also the best surf spot in Ceara should catching waves be you thing. The local beaches are beautiful and uncrowded and has a distinct relaxed feel. you can head to the beach and buy fresh fish right from the little sail boats as they return to shore. The town has some great restaurants and beach bars to choose from and the local super markets have a great range of produce these days. even fine wines and imported meats which I still find surprising given that 9 years ago you couldn't buy olive oil! I don't plan on cutting my ties with this amazing place and people that live here in the slightest. so I am more than happy to introduce the new owner to the area. my friends and any other kind of help in terms of introductions to lawyers. builders and that kind of things. I'm also willing to pass on the "stoke" so the new owner will be receiving a free full one on one intensive kitesurfing course from myself. which doesn't come cheap normally ;) I will even throw in a set of kitesurfing equipment and surf board too! The house is registered "posse" which can be changed to the "matricular" by the new owner. I am the 3rd foreigner to own this slice of paradise and all the paper work is in good order.
