Property description

The Villa Real
Luxury designer details in the grandeur of a true estate home. Stunning setting with privacy and privilege in this lakefront retreat on the tranquil shore of Mexico’s largest lake, Lake Chapala. This one of a kind Mediterranean style villa offers both lake front views and spectacular mountain views. Relax and enjoy! Spoil yourself. You deserve it. There are two acres of gardens, for your enjoyment. Swim, stroll in the gardens, have a game of tennis, watch the sunset with a margarita in hand. Pamper yourself within the complete privacy and security of a property designed to take advantage of our year round spring climate for luxurious indoor/outdoor living.

The residence consists of four sleeping rooms and four and one half baths. The elegant master bedroom suite, which is heated and air conditioned, has a spacious walk-in closet and two large marbled bathrooms.

Dramatic formal entry has soaring 25 foot ceiling and two sweeping marble staircases, cupola with crystal chandelier with a gallery overlooking the enormous grand salon. All floors, including pavilions have marble floors.

High ceilings, artisan custom plaster moldings and dramatic lighting compliment the residence.

The pool pavilion boasts a tiled steam room that is very comfortable for six to eight, a marble bathroom, and a covered loggia facing the Venetian glass tiled pool. The pool is not heated.

The pergola offers not only a delightful shaded garden area and one of many focal points of the grounds, but also a convenient open-air multi purpose area for entertaining.

Wet bar has access to the formal dining room and offers exterior service to the loggia and poolside, the perfect spot for entertaining morning to evening.

Looking at exercising and being fit? The tennis pavilion has a fully equipped gymnasium. A personal fitness trainer may be arranged, with some advanced notice.

For those who enjoy cooking: One can enjoy an absolutely amazing gourmet kitchen & separate butler’s pantry with 2 microwave ovens, double convection ovens, 6 burner gas cook top, 2 Subzero refrigerators, 2 dishwashers, and a warming drawer. Appliances: Subzero, Dacor and Bosch. Top of the line outdoor grill & rotisserie. Four fireplaces (two decorative and two wood burning, one located on main loggia).

Car: Recommended

Ajijic Mexico is located on Mexico's largest lake, Lake Chapala. It is 45 minutes from the beautiful historic colonial city of Guadalajara. Historic, yes, but modern as well. You'll find everything from high end shopping and dining at Andares mall in Guadalajara to the beautiful colonial experience of the historic downtown of Guadalajara. Less than two hours away is Tequila. You will find Ajijic perfectly located for easy day trips, if you wish to venture away from our lovely village.
