About Old House Dreams

In this arid terrain, sandwiched between the Santa Cruz / Pedro Plains Mountains and the shores of St Elizabeth, there is a sleepy neighborhood known as Old Wharf.

The house, designed and finished with minimal concrete, is dominated by ecological wooden building materials invented in the 17th century known as shingles. This aesthetically pleasing element comfortably cozys the residents in their homely, peaceful atmosphere. The majestic climb above the double doors at the entrance reveals a dome (whose origins date back to the eighth century) – a small crowned “house” that marks the roof line. This ensures constant ventilation inside and allows the sun’s rays to shine through.
