Dubbed Villa 38, the momentous home was purchased by a Boston-based partner at a private equity fund who was reportedly drawn to the natural beauty and secluded location of the lot. This sale uppends the previous record set by the $16,700,000 sale of a single-family home at Punta Mita Resort in 2019.

A 200-mile stretch of beach at the center of Mexico’s eastern coastline, Riviera Nayarit is quickly becoming one of the hottest emerging regions for resort living. According to One&Only’s report, only six of the region’s homes were sold in the $10 million price bracket from 2012 to 2018. That figure doubled from 2019 to 2021, and an additional seven homes have sold for $10 million or more in the past six months alone.

This particular home is designed to include more than 12,000 square feet of interior space and boast 6,164 additional square feet of explorable exterior. The single-family home will feature eight bedrooms, eight bathrooms, three powder rooms and a private pool, ensuring the lucky buyer can enjoy their home-away-from-home with all their friends and family.

Also on the blueprint are a home office, gym, tropical garden with hammock lounge, fire pit, water features and a rooftop lounge for entertaining. The home will be finished and furnished with locally-sourced materials, bringing the natural wonder of Mexico’s majesty to life throughout the home.
