Property description

'You Never Know What's Behind Closed Doors'. A familiar phrase in Merida and one that truly captures the spirit of our house. Designed by the brilliant architect Henry Ponce, our home features the grandeur and elegance of a colonial home located in one of the best neighborhoods in the historical Centro district. The open courtyard in the center of the house is the first image you see when you open the doors. Situated around the courtyard is the pool , the indoor/outdoor dining/ living areas and the kitchen. A visual feast from anyplace you sit whether you are looking at the hand-cut stone wall, the spectacular water features or the grand arches that surround the courtyard.


A perfect place to entertain! Sitting on the terrace upstairs is another favorite place for us in the evening. There is always a breeze blowing from the north, music from the park and the sound of horses trotting by pulling a carriage. The master suite is upstairs also and it overlooks the courtyard as well as the upstairs terrace. It is a very restful room decorated with fine furniture and the master bath is luxurious. For those wanting to watch TV we have a large flat screen TV with the American Dish network, a DVD player, sound system and CD player. Once you open the door and discover how comfortable and spacious this house is you won't want to leave but when you do the restaurants, shops, parks and Paseo Montejo, the most beautiful boulevard in the city are right outside your front door. Enjoy !

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: We have always enjoyed traveling and exploring different parts of Mexico but have never felt more at home than being in Merida. I am retired from the local school district and my husband continues to do private consultant work. We love walking through the various neighborhoods of Merida, meeting new friends and finding new restaurants. We also enjoy taking day trips to explore ruins, cenotes or finding new haciendas.

Why the Owner Chose Merida:
My husband appreciates colonial architecture so we came to Merida to see some homes for sale and ended up buying one. We both felt very comfortable in this city.
