A unique and timeless residential masterpiece that was conceived, designed, and furnished by Jorge Letelier of Manhattan-based Letelier & Rock Design, 27 Calle Cartagena is rare architectural gem – equal parts grandeur, privacy, and natural wonder, including sweeping panoramic view of the surrounding Pacific seascape – made rarer still for its original 18th-Century artifacts and antiques, which convey with this one-of-a-kind home.
27 Cartagena is a turn-key invitation to step in and immediately begin enjoying the estate. The home is so well supplied, on your first day home, you entertain 20+ guests, at any level of formality, and need only supply the food and beverages you serve. The home is fully equipped for all levels of living and entertainment. As a turnkey offering, this home’s furniture, finishings, art, new linens, flatware, and all equipment are included.
Rare Beachfront Location
27 Calle Cartagena hovers above the meeting point of sand and sea: perched on a slightly elevated beachfront homesite overlooking the Pacific Ocean, the home’s privileged and nearly impossible-to-find oceanfront setting affords direct access to white-sand Playa Danta, breathtaking sunset views, and sweeping ocean panoramas that reach the offshore Pitaya Islands.
Whether you’re soaking in the outdoor saltwater pool and Jacuzzi, sipping a cocktail from your covered terrace, or enjoying the sights and sounds of the nature that surrounds – including the playfully inquisitive monkeys that frequent the surrounding trees – you are sure to feel both comfortable and relaxed while enjoying all this spectacular home has to offer.
27 Calle Cartagena is perfectly situated for total privacy and unobstructed views from nearly every space within. The home occupies rare oceanfront real estate at Las Catalinas, an exclusive oceanfront town and gated community. For more information on Las Catalinas, please see below.
Professional Concepting + Design
Jorge Letelier, of the Manhattan-based, award-winning, and internationally renowned design firm Letelier & Rock Design, conceived, designed, and furnished 27 Calle Cartagena. The design concept of the house was based on 18th-century Spanish Colonial architecture.
Blending history with the thoroughly modern, the home is equipped with a Leviton smart system, Lutron lighting, an automatic glass door for easy circulation from the patio to the kitchen, and ultra-thin 65 smart TVs.
Spanish Colonial Architecture
Own a piece of heritage and history at 27 Calle Cartagena, an inimitable work of art that captures beauty and embodies luxury in a way both contemporary and transportive, ushering the grandeur of old into your modern lifestyle.
Built in the style of 18th-Century Spanish Colonial mansions, 27 Calle Cartagena was meticulously and painstakingly completed over three years by world-class craftsmen paying attention to small-but-mighty details:
- The architectural language of a Spanish Colonial revival home, with exposed wood beams, textured white walls, and a red-tiled roof;
- Repurposed 18th-Century flooring and other architectural details, rescued from an 18th-Century Guatemalan church;
- Exclusive use of ceramic tiling imported from Portugal and Italy;
- The finest Coralina stone imported from the Dominican Republic; and
- A large collection of Pre-Colombian, South American, and Meso-American artwork and antiques to heighten the home’s history and authenticity.

18th Century Artifacts, Art + Antiques
To achieve a rare degree of authenticity, the Letelier & Rock Design team scoured Central and South America to purchase and incorporate 18th-Century original architectural artifacts into this superb one-of-a-kind residence.
Furthermore, the design team ensured that the home’s interior and exterior were embellished with a world-class collection of museum-quality fine art and period furniture, selecting only the finest authentic treasures procured from around the globe.

- 17th-, 18th-, 19th-, and 20th-century furniture;
