Quito villa description
uinta La Merced was designed by a Spanish architect, following the 'Cortijo' style and was built using traditional techniques and materials. Located in the friendly little village of La Merced on the outskirts of Quito. Many of the homes are weekend getaways.
La Merced is known for its volcanic thermal baths, a 5 minute walk. Tiny town square with quaint church, small shops and internet services. Nearby is Sangolqui, (15 mins.) known for its market on Saturdays -- lots of fun! Great shopping, restaurants and movies are in San Rafael (10 min.) and Cumbaya (20 min.).
The property includes the main house and a caretaker's cottage. Its gardens are full of blooming plants year round. The barbecue area includes Argentine-style grill, bread oven & prep sink. Strolling paths wind through formal plantings & fruit trees to the tennis court, pond and greenhouse.
First Floor: A beautiful arched door leads to a courtyard with fountain & hammocks. Doors from patio lead to the living and dining rooms with a fire place. These rooms are designed using exposed eucalyptus beams and carrizo ceilings. Eclectic decor includes sari & dupioni drapes, estate finds, colonial-style paintings and textile items . French doors to the courtyard. The kitchen is large & equipped with fireplace, modern appliances & island w/5 stools. Yet another fireplace makes the kitchen cozy. 3 bedrooms (double, queen and single) and 3 bathrooms complete the first floor.
Second Floor: Glass double doors in the courtyard lead up tile-accented stairs to the upstairs. This level includes an ENORMOUS master suite (king size bed) with sitting area and balcony. The master bath has a large dressing area, his and hers vanities, separate shower and a soaking tub overlooking the grounds. Another bedroom (single bed) with en suite full bath and yet another bedroom with a pair of single beds. Also upstairs is a very large library with fireplace. All rooms have a fireplace.
