Cobre / Copper – sinks, tub, etc.

As far as I’m concerned, Large Copper Tub and Copper Faucetthere’s nothing as beautiful as copper that is left to age and patina on its own.  And we’re fortunate in Mexico to have a town that specializes in copper – Santa Clara del Cobre – just a few hours away.  Most of the items come with a patina already applied, so it’s not the type of shiny copper that needs constant care.

In fact, our copper tub is not only the most wonderful tub I’ve ever taken a bath in, it’s the easiest to take care of!

Some Other Property Details

Art-Deco Style Iron and Glass Doors To Private GardenI thought I’d post photos of some details that got left out of previous posts.  You can click on any of this pics to see all the details in larger shots.

This first picture is of the custom-made wrought-iron arched double doors to the private garden off the master bathroom.  The have an art-deco design with privacy glass.Art Studio Built-In Cabinets and Sink

This next picture is in the art studio on the second floor of the main house.  It shows the built-in cabinets with a stained concrete and embedded glass countertop and Cañon-Style Ceiling in Master Bedroom HallwayTalavera tiles on the backsplash and edges.  I do stained glass and mosaic work in this studio, which is surrounded by glass and has a peek of a view of the lake and a magnificent view of the mountains.

Here’s a shot of the ceiling entering the master bedroom; it is called a “Cañon” (in English, Canyon) because it is long and narrow and quite deep, meaning the bricks form a very rounded curve.  It has oval windows on each side, nice crown moulding along the top, and a star lamp that sparkles quite colorfully after dark.

Bamboo Curtain to Master BR ClosetThis next photo is a bamboo curtain entry into the master bedroom’s spacious walk-in closet.  It adds a bit of tropical flare, don’t you think?

This next pic shows the details of the shower in the master bathroom – it’s so hard to show all the details in bathroom shots, since they’re smaller areas.  Master Bathroom Shower Floor and TileworkIt’s got a beautiful marble and pebble floor, a checkerboard pattern of bird and fish tiles, sliding glass and iron doors to the private garden (see above pic of the doors to it), and what you can’t see in this pic is the tiled niche and the large rain-style copper shower head.

Tile Details of Master BR FireplaceHere’s a closer-up photo of the fireplace in the master bedroom, with lovely bird design Talavera tiles embedded in the plaster and a custom-made wrought-iron fireplace screen.

Fruit Trees, Coffee, Etc.

Our Mango Treeproperty produces quite an abundance of fruit – mangoes, key limes, papayas, bananas, pomegranates, oranges, tangerines, palmelos (grapefruit-like fruits), Papaya Treesstrawberries, and on the street there are plum trees.  We also get a good crop of coffee beans from two trees that I have learned how to process into coffee – we’ve processed up to seven pounds in one year!  We put together information on how to process coffee on our website, which you can see by clicking hereCoffee Tree With Ripe BeansWe also have a cacao tree that we hope will produce cocoa beans soon, as well as two olive trees that will produce olives when they are more mature.
