New Release! The Treehouse Residences
Last month we announced the preview of the newest residential offering at Punta Sayulita, the Treehouse. Designed by the multi-award wining firms of de Reus Architects and Vita Planning & Landscape Architecture, the Treehouse residences capture the ultimate “tropical experience” with each residence perched high within the jungle canopy overlooking the Punta Sayulita Beach Club with views of Sayulita Bay. In describing the design direction for the Treehouse residence Mark de Reus commented, “The Treehouses were inspired by the ancient vernacular of this coastal region and use of local stone and wood. The indigenous architectural style is woven around the requirements of today’s needs for lifestyle and luxury, privacy and expansive views of the bay, the Sierra Madre Mountains and the village of Sayulita.”
At just over 4,000 sq. ft., of indoor-outdoor living space, the Treehouse residences are built from tropical hardwoods with sophisticated design accents and finishes that maximize indoor-outdoor living upon a two level, open floor plan, featuring generous multifunctional living spaces secured by retractable folding doors, dual master bedroom suites with discrete outdoor showers, a media room/den along with a children’s bunk. Download the Treehouse brochure.
Punta Sayulita is pleased to announce the release of the Treehouse Residences starting at US$1.325 million. Limited to three (3), groundbreaking on the Treehouses are scheduled for the first quarter of 2013 and up until groundbreaking Punta Sayulita will be extending pre-construction purchase incentive programs to the Treehouse residences.
