Malinalco house description
One mile from the center of Malinalco, near enough but far enough to avoid traffic and noise the house was built with a South Seas open concept to enjoy nature to the fullest. Surrounded by beautiful greenery and wonderful views of the mountains, with a creek and a waterfall at the edge of the property.The main garden is full of lovely plantings and the lower area is for running around and more rustic.
Built on three levels the house sits against the side of a hill. The first level has the LV, DN, Kitchen, half bath, all open to the garden and overlooking the pool. There is a large patio in front of the pool where we usually eat our meals and sunbathe, a more private terrace on the side to just sit and read under the avocado tree or meditate. The second level is the main entry to the house. There are two bedrooms, each with bath and private terrace on this floor. The third level has the master bedroom, and a 4th bedroom, each one with private bath. Next to the master bedroom is a sunroom with two couches that can sleep two - usually children since it is only separated from the master by curtains.
Separate from the house, by the creek, there is a 'palapa' with a walker (if you dont want to hike thru the fields) and upstairs a sitting area for relaxing, an afternoon siesta or evening cocktails.
Also separate from the house is a small casita. Downstairs is a bedroom and bath which we are refurbishing and will offer a fifth bedroom and bath with a lovely view of one of the lily ponds in the garden.
A live-in couple take care of the grounds and the house cleaning and are included in the rates.

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: I am a retired stockbroker from NYC. I designed and built the house to be totally different from anything in a city and to enjoy nature and the outdoors. I lived in Mexico for 10 years but now spend more time in the US and travelling all over and come down sporadically to tune out and recharge. I am single. Fluent in English and Spanish.
Why the Owner Chose Malinalco:
I used to travel to Mexico City on business. Many of my affluent clients had week-end homes here and I visited many times and fell in love with the area I bought the land, which was a corn field, because of the creek and the views. It has taken 10 years to build the garden .
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Peace and quiet. Perfect for taking short trips to surrounding areas.
