The oversized second-floor master bedroom and sitting area has exposed-beam wood ceilings as do the separate his and hers marble bathrooms with walk-in closets.

The beautiful 1500 square foot (139 square meter) Guest House provides a Great Room with two large original horse-scene murals, two bedrooms and two baths with granite counter-tops, a loft, a kitchen with custom cabinetry and granite counter tops, seven skylights, a pantry with a granite countertop, and laundry room.

The stone-walled guest-parking area of this Ecuador property, adjacent to the courtyard, accommodates four cars with ample additional parking in the courtyard.
The garages, main residence and guest house are connected by porches and covered walkways with rich exposed-beam wood ceilings which one often sees in high-end properties in Ecuador.
The beautiful indoor sky-lit solar-heated lap pool (very unusual in Ecuador real estate) which is thirteen feet wide by fifty-two feet long and accompanying large Jacuzzi are in a separate building (adjacent to the main house) twenty six by sixty-six feet.
A very attractive outdoor brick-oven building, adjacent to the main house kitchen, is located off the walkway between the main Ecuador property and guest house. The plant nursery is five hundred and fifteen square feet.

The world-class 4,314 square foot, horse stable features ten spacious stalls, a tack room, bathroom, kitchen, maintenance room and food processing stall.
Separately, there is a gazebo-type structure for social gatherings after riding. In any Ecuador property it is difficult (probably impossible) to find a stable to compare to this one.
The world-class clay tennis court is surrounded by beautiful stone walls and flower gardens in each corner. This feature, too, is very unusual in Ecuador real estate.
The three-court volleyball stadium seats 250 people and is easily the best in Ecuador and probably all of South America.
