Edra Blixeth's Casa Captiva, Estate of the Day
A few weeks ago we mentioned that Edra Blixseth's Rancho Mirage, California compound, Porcupine Creek had hit the market for $75 million. Now the Wall Street Journal reports that another bank-controlled property tied to the once well-propertied ex-wife of timber magnate Tim Blixseth and co-founder of the Yellowstone Club is up for sale. Casa Captiva is an idyllic six-bedroom retreat in Los Cabos, Mexico.
The estate has 280 feet of oceanfront and the secluded cove is situated in the most exclusive and private community of Punta Bella adjacent to Villas Del Mar in Palmilla in the city of San Jose del Cabo. With 10,000 square feet of space with 7,000 square feet of outdoor space there is plenty of room (a good thing for the Blixseths who were collectors). The floors, windows and deck are handcrafted with teak wood and the home has a great room, large kitchen, family room, gym, office, bar and caretaker's quarters. The master suite is a private space with a den and bedroom facing the ocean, two dressing rooms, steam room, Jacuzzi tub and a a meditation room that opens onto a private garden. The property has an infinity pool and large Jacuzzi and the beach is just steps away. The property is listed at $12.875 million.
