San Juan Cosala house description

You will truly be on top of the world. This 2-story house was built in 2009, with your comfort in mind. It is light and airy, ideal for indoor/outdoor living, with many windows facing South, and sliding glass doors leading to the deck overlooking the lake and the mountains. The living/dining room features comfortable, top-quality furniture. The master bedroom suite is on the main level, a second bedroom, bath, and study are on the upper level. An around-the-clock security system is included. You can see the huge communal swimming pool from your deck, and join a friendly crowd for water aerobics 3 mornings a week. Yoga lessons are offered at the club house. Get to know your neighbors at the monthly pot luck dinner at the club.

The climate at Lake Chapala is temperate all the year round. At an elevation of over 2000m. (6000 feet) above sea level, the air is normally dry, but the large lake adds a little humidity to the air. Even in summer, the temperature rarely rises above the '80's. There is a rainy season from June through September; typically rain falls overnight, and the days are sunny. The climate is the main reason why so many snowbirds come here (October-April) and sunbirds escape the heat of Texas and Florida from May through September.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: Denis comes from Northern Ireland, migrated to the USA in the 1960's where all the best engineering projects were to be found, and had a satisfying career in industry. He spent quite a lot of time in Space City, USA, Huntsville, Alabama, where he met Julika. Julika was born in South Germany, and moved to Alabama early in the space race of the 1960's. After rearing three children, she graduated as a school teacher and taught gifted and talented children for many years.

                      Why the Owner Chose San Juan Cosala:
                      In the late 90's we got a condo near Lake Chapala that we used in winters. After we retired, we spent more time in Mexico, found the condo a little cramped and bought a house. Eventually, we realized that life in Mexico was more satisfying than in the US, and moved here full time. Selling our property in the US enabled us to build in this location --reputed to have the best climate in the world.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Staying at our rental property in the Raquet Club, we mix with a cosmopolitan group of people who keep life very interesting. About half the property owners are Mexican and half are from everywhere else --many from the USA and Canada, but also from Europe, Asia and the Middle East. The cost of living here is much lower than in North America, and the climate is blissful. The neighboring communities are rich with the talent of numerous immigrants who provide an extraordinary array of cultural events, music, drama, art shows ..the list is endless.
