Enchanted, private sixteen acre estate in Guatemala.
La Begona, in the Mayan culture, means huge dense rain
forest and there are more than 5,000 trees, many as
old as 250 years. Ninety percent of these trees produce
a wide variety of native fruits: 600 mangos, 50 avocados,
2,000 mameyes, 1,000 nisperos and many more. The five
bedroom, four bathroom mansion with lots of windows
was built in 2004. There is also an extensive gym, maid¹s
separate house, a national approved helicopter pad,
with plenty of space for a large swimming pool and tennis
court. The estate has its own well water and springs.
The compound is only five minutes from the city. This
contemporary colonial grand estate is decorated with
17th Century English antique furniture which is included
in the price. It is next to the Pan American Freeway,
the Motagua River which is one of the tributaries to
the Amazon River and the cordillera of the Andes Mountains
next to the river. Temperatures are mild, similar to
California¹s climate. The village of Saint Helen,
with a population of approximately 900, is just 200
yards away and was named the safest village in all of
Guatemala. Just five minutes away is the second richest
economy town in the country with over a million people.
There are theaters, a shopping mall and restaurants.
This is primarily an agricultural area. Languages spoken
are Spanish, English, Mayan and many dialects. The monetary
exchange is quetzal and dollar.
