Moving to La Paz, Baja California Sur
Contact Info for Haciendas Palo Verde
“I want to move to La Paz.” A line uttered by so many who visit this beautiful city on the Sea of Cortez. Positioned on a hillside overlooking the Bay of La Paz in Baja California Sur is a residential community taking shape in the ‘bedroom pueblo’ of El Centenario, Haciendas Palo Verde.
There are many reason people fall in love with this quiet little city of La Paz. Over the past few decades more and more North Americans are choosing to relocate to La Paz, one of the wealthiest cities per capita in Mexico. The seat of the state government, the city of about 250,000 now boasts one of the most advanced hospitals in Mexico, opened in 2010. A study determined that La Paz is the third safest city of its size in North America, far away from the cartel issues grabbing headlines. Nestled in the foot of a north facing bay, the city is know as the gateway to the Sea of Cortez for the wide variety of fishing and eco-travel opportunities available.
Located a pleasant distance west of the city is the growing pueblo of Centenario. Not much more than a tope (speed bump) on the road north to Constitucion just a decade or so ago, the area has become a very popular location for North American investment in single family, free standing homes.
Roadside taco and hotdog stands have evolved into fun dining establishments and on the weekends you can easily find a place to go dancing to some old time rock and roll. Centenario is arguably the closest North American enclave to the rapidly expanding “Cola de Ballena / Whale Tail” shopping district which includes 4 large new supermarkets, a Liverpool Department store, a Wal-Mart, Sam’s Club, and a Home Depot and a projected Starbucks just to mention a few of the familiar names. The development is just minutes away from the La Paz International Airport and about 15 minutes from downtown La Paz.
Located near the crest of the slowly sloping hillside, overlooking your new domain is the residential development of Haciendas Palo Verde. The development is hardly a new comer to the La Paz housing market. When you enter through the beautifully gardened controlled access gates you immediately get a sense of the quality of life offered by this community.
Along the wide, completed roadway are the 16 completed Spanish Colonial homes of the happy owners who have made the move to La Paz before you. Not just a bunch of cracker boxes crammed together, these lovely homes are located on 1/3 of an acre estates, with forethought in the community plan. More than 40 lots in the project have already been sold for owners looking with an eye to the future. With your investment in Haciendas Palo Verde you not only get a full time or part time Baja residence, but an actual piece of Baja to call your own. Each home is individually styled, making for a very attractive community. When you take delivery of your new Haciendas Palo Verde home it is landscaped with the native flora making your home not only attractive, but a water-sipper as well.
Haciendas Palo Verde homes are constructed to North American standards. With spacious kitchens and baths, extra tall solid Alder wood doors, artisan quality wood cabinetry and finishes, these stylish homes provide a spacious living space with 11 foot ceilings. For homes with pools you can take advantage of the Baja sunshine with solar pool heating. You will enjoy living in a beautiful, quality, low-maintenance home for years to come.
These homes are built for your Baja lifestyle. With plenty of windows to bring the beauty of the desert environment into your home the layout meets the needs of the full and part time Baja resident. A grand home for retirees, there is room for those grandchildren to come visit as well. La Paz is not Los Cabos or other similar resort town. The pace is slower here and the environment is that of a family town.
In addition to the security of the gated community Haciendas Palo Verde is finishing up construction on the gym and pool facilities for residents. Neighbors regularly meet up to enjoy street roller-hockey together and set out on mountain biking treks. With all the available activities associated with the La Paz region you can stay fit to enjoy them more fully.
Rick and Steve Byers, partner developers of Haciendas Palo Verde have prepared three homes that are in the final stages of completion and available for your immediate investment. These homes will very shortly be ‘turn-key’ ready for you to begin living your Baja Dream. They invite you to come take a tour of the community and these well-constructed Spanish Colonial single family homes in Centenario. Select building lots with panoramic ocean views are still available. Finished home estates start at just $198,000 USD, you will be captivated not only by the magic of La Paz but the sensibility of a real estate investment in Baja California Sur. www.haciendaspaloverde.com
