Merida house description

Constructed in the 1960's by a local engineer/builder, this Art Deco house was originally a gift to his daughter. She was a prima ballerina and a loved celebrity in Merida. This house is dedicated to her talent and her life.

Located in the Santiago neighborhood of Centro Merida (fondly referred to as 'Gringo Gulch') this lovingly restored two story tropical home is in the heart of an area that is rated as one of the best from which to explore all that the beautiful city of Merida has to offer. Close to many restaurants, shops, medical facilities, this house is a 2 block walk to The Merida English Library, 2 blocks to Santiago Square, 3 blocks to Santa Lucia Square and a 9 block walk to the Plaza Grande (Zocolo).

Newly restored and updated, the house retains the allure and charm of it's original period design while offering contemporary updates and modern amenities. Ceiling heights in all rooms are 11', which gives the house a lofty and airy feel while still maintaining intimacy which can be lacking in older colonial homes. Individually controlled air conditioning units, pressurized and softened water system, kitchen with dishwasher and microwave (and exit to the terrance and pool), beautifully outfitted bathrooms contribute to the comfort of this home.

Upstairs, both comfortable bedrooms have queen beds, custom-padded headboards, individually controlled air conditioning units and ceiling fans. They have French doors that open onto the second level terrace that offers cooling breezes, custom-designed, locally crafted furniture and tree-top views of the distant cathedral towers. Beautiful mood lighting make this a spectacular area for evening cocktails and entertaining.

Below in the garden, the filtered plunge pool was inspired by local 'cenotes' (the Yucatan's famous subterranean hidden fresh water lagoons). Large enough for 4 to 6 people, the lighted pool is backed by a blue rock wall that was hand built by local Maya stone workers. Flanking the pool are tropical plants that surround and envelope it with their huge undulating, exotic leaves. Finally, an outdoor shower completes this serene garden and pool setting.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: We have traveled to many destinations in Mexico and ultimately chose Merida as a place to purchase vacation property based on the history, culture and warmth of the people in this beautiful city. This home had been neglected for many years when we discovered it and we have given it a total renovation to return it to its original beauty and charm, while updating the systems to modern standards. We frequently visit and enjoy our house. When we are not in Merida, we offer it as a comfortable vacation getaway in the heart of this vibrant urban destination.

              Why the Owner Chose Merida:
              Merida was our city of choice for vacation property ownership because of the culture, warmth and friendly spirit of the local residents, ease of travel, safety of the community and access to shopping and excellent medical care.

              The Unique Benefits at this House:
              Airport pick up is available at an additional charge. English-speaking property managers are local residents. Food shopping, cultural activities and restaurants are a short walk from the house. You can be relaxing on the sunny Gulf of Mexico beaches after a 40 minute drive north of the city. Close proximity to the historical Mayan world and ruins of Chichen Itza and Uxmal are within a 2 hour drive.
