Paraiso Realty selected as exclusive agent for historic waterfront house in Puerto Rico

SAN JUAN, PUERTO RICO, April 22, 2021 – Paraiso Realty is excited to announce their latest high-profile partnership with one of the most recognized and sought-after waterfront homes on the island of Vieques in Puerto Rico.  

Built in 1869, the iconic property was one of the first houses built in the downtown area of Isabel Segunda. Resurrected in 1989 following destruction from Hurricane Hugo, it was rebuilt with the help of New York architect Ed Knowles and local craftsmen Abraham Martinez, Victor Ortiz and Dennis Davis. The structure was restored with the house’s original footprint used to build this house better and stronger than ever before.  

Designed in the traditional French Caribbean style, the five-bedroom, five-bathroom house has received praise for its architectural style, sought-after location and breathtaking views of the Caribbean Sea and El Yunque on mainland Puerto Rico. The house was designed with two atriums, which provides spectacular open-air views, with one atrium leading to a small garden and the other to a beautiful fresh-water pool.  

The traditional and carefully designed space offers a source of natural daylight, unique gathering spots, and year-round greenery right in the middle of the home. Upon entering from the main entrance off the street, visitors are welcomed into a foyer and sitting area. Next, ideal for entertaining, visitors are sure to fall for its large living room with open views and the kitchen designed with its own breakfast nook on a balcony overlooking the oceanside garden. 

“Min’s Casa Vieja Amarilla is arguably one of the most iconic and traditional looking houses on the island of Vieques and we’re excited to welcome it to the Paraiso Realty family,” said Bob Gevinski, Broker and founder of Paraiso Realty. “With our extensive sales experience, interest in preserving historic homes and our focus on providing extraordinary service to our residents, we can’t wait to find the right owner to love and care for this home.”  

Paraiso Realty specializes in historical homes that need tender care. With a particular affinity to the island of Vieques and a unique understanding of historical architecture as the patrimony of any culture, Paraiso Realty is on a mission to help protect and preserve historical homes in Puerto Rico. 

The premier property in Isabel Segunda, on Vieques, is now available for viewing. In addition to the main house, the sale also includes a parking space and workshop across the street. It is currently listed for $1,100,000 U.S. The complete listing can be viewed at
