Property description

This Colonial masterpiece is located 2 blocks from Antigua's Central Park. The property has been lovingly restored by the current owners with a well known local architect. Working in conjunction with the Municipality and the Conservatory of Antigua, the home was rebuilt to exacting standards, faithfully preserving all colonial features with old world grace and charm but unparalleled modern comfort. This property is now available for short term rental.

The main entrance through the original "Portón" brings you to the first of three gardens in which you will find the solar heated swimming pool. To the left are changing quarters with shower, toilet and and sauna. Surrounding the pool is ample space to enjoy large gatherings of friends and family. To the rear of the pool is a wall mounted fountain, and a staircase to the roof top terrazza that will give you extraordinary views of the city, and surrounding landmarks, such as the Volcanoes Agua, Fuego and Acatenango.

Entering the main house you encounter the first of two salons, with views of the pool and the second of the three gardens, into which visitors can be brought while preserving the private living area of the home. The grand salon adjoins the main dining room and library. With its large fireplace and vaulted ceiling it is the perfect setting for a before or after dinner cocktail, or to converse with guests. The kitchen is fully equipped with modern features but old world charm with its traditional cupola. There is a second dining room adjacent to the kitchen for breakfast and less formal meals.Gathered around the third and final garden, with its colonial fountain and traditional terrace, are the four bedrooms all with large en-suite private bathrooms with walk in closets, hardwood floors and fireplaces (master and first bedroom).

Each bedroom is configured to suit a family or guests who would like options to suit their needs. The master bedroom is spectacular, and focuses on the vaulted ceiling, and corner fireplace and sitting area. Off the master bedroom is the bath, with a standalone glass enclosed shower, bathtub and dual hand basins.

The home is ecologically friendly with all hot water and heated pool powered by solar panels. The home is staffed with full time housekeeper and guardian.
