Property description

This is a beautifully restored colonial house in the tranquil historic neighborhood of La Ermita, standing on one of the oldest cobblestone streets in the great city of Merida. The house is centrally located nine blocks from Merida's colorful main square, nine blocks from the splendid main market, and only steps away from lovely La Ermita Park and the neighborhood's botanic garden.

The house is ideal for a couple, a cozy home with original Yucatecan doors and windows, skylights, and dazzling pasta tile floors. A generous covered outdoor dining area opens out to a patio, pool, and garden. A charming staircase leads you up to a sunny roof terrace. The large, renovated kitchen is bright, fully equipped, and cook friendly, with a dishwasher and ample storage. The master bedroom has a walk-in closet, and the modern bathroom includes a shower large enough for two. The original 18' high ceilings help keep all the rooms cool and airy.

Due to the staircase and the depth of the pool, the house may not be suitable for small children.

Upon your arrival, you will be greeted by a representative from our management company, who will help you to settle in and answer any questions you may have about the house and about the city. Airport transportation can also be provided. If you choose to rent a car, parking is readily available on the street at all times, directly in front of the house.

We invite you to make yourself at home here, and hope you will enjoy the house while you are exploring this vibrant, unique, lovely city and all the wonderful surrounding areas.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in Brooklyn, New York, U.S.A., and work in film and television. We love Mexico, and have been especially drawn to Merida, the wonderful capital city of the Yucatan, and to Yucatecan culture in general.

Why the Owner Chose Merida:
We were attracted to Merida from having visited in the past, and were encouraged by friends who live there to look into purchasing property. It is a vibrant, growing city where tradition and modern life mix gracefully. Its location in the heart of the Yucatan makes it an ideal departure point for exploring the rest of the country. It's an easy place to spend a lot of time in -- a perfect home away from home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We enjoy the sunny, tropical climate, the warmth of the people, the slower pace of life, the wonderful food, and the immediate connection to Yucatecan culture.
