Literally only a few steps from parque santiago, this grand colonial home, designed by renowned architect salvador reyes, is situated in one of the best locations of historic merida. Walk to the neighboring mercado for fresh vegetables and other necessities, or stroll to the zoo, theater, or main square. With self-sustaining ecosystems (complete with fish, turtles, and crayfish) in two of the courtyards, this remarkable home is the ideal retreat in the heart of centro.
Stepping past the restored colonial facade, you will be welcomed into this 100+ year old home by original pasta tile floors, high beamed ceilings, antique wood doors, skylights, and large open spaces. The 3 bedroom home has a foyer, two living rooms, dining room, office, fully-equipped kitchen, 3 courtyards, large infinity edged pool, ample terraces, and a rooftop entertaining/relaxing area with a covered mirador tower for viewing the city. All of the bedrooms feature ensuite bathrooms with a stone tub found in the master bathroom.
The 8 meter long infinity pool has lounging areas both in and out of the pool, along with an outdoor shower coming out of the stone wall. There is also a full bathroom servicing this area which is located in the rear guest casita. Everything was thought of when designing this spectacular home. The street side of the home has double paned glass for quiet living. The whole house has a pressurized water system which is complemented by both softening and u.V. Sterilization systems, as well as 8 mini split air conditioners, wireless internet and music, and a video intercom system. There is even a backup generator; just in case.
If you are looking for that special place for your vacation, this is one home which you and your guests are sure to always remember fondly.
