Dotted with pristine beaches, pear-green rainforests, and cascading waterfalls, the Dominican Republic is a dream destination for the adventurous. And since being built in 2007, the Peninsula House—an eight-bedroom, eight-bathroom boutique hotel in Las Terrenas—has been a sumptuous resting place for travelers. Now, the 20,000-square-foot estate overlooking the Playa Coson and the Atlantic Ocean has hit the market for $6 million.

Designed by French architect Serge Robin, the plantation-style Victorian residence—which can continue to operate as a hotel or be turned into a private home, according to its buyer’s wishes—is marked by its gingerbread trim and wraparound porch with brick floors and coralline stone columns. Inside, the residence sports Brazilian hardwood floors, tribal decorations, and an ornate fireplace. The semiprofessional kitchen showcases a white-marble center island, a five-burner stove, double sinks, and a small bar. Additional rooms include a library, a billiards room looking out over lush foliage, and a traditional Colonial-style dining room with a six-seat mahogany table.

The property also features a wine cellar, a heliport, a two-car garage, and a nearby beach house with dressing rooms and two full bathrooms. A large freshwater swimming pool and beautifully designed gardens add to the plantation’s otherworldly charm. Nearby attractions include Los Haitises National Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and isolated beaches such as Playa Moron and Playa Rincon. (coxandco.nyc)
