This charming, historic, urban cottage ideally located in desirable Colonial Santiago is on Calle 68, very close to Merida’s iconic Paseo de Montejo. Fully furnished, well-maintained and move-in-ready, this truly is the perfect small home for a winter retreat, cozy but comfortable year round living, plus being a great rental investment with a proven track record.
Step from the street through the lovely old doorway into a large front sitting room with high ceilings and gleaming pasta tile floors! An airy hallway defined by a long display shelf creates a gallery connecting the front to the back of the home which contains a small dining room, a well-appointed galley kitchen and one large bedroom with adjacent bathroom. The view from the dining table is framed by inviting french doors opening into a magical courtyard filled with lush tropical foliage. Across this green oasis is a separate second bedroom and bathroom in a private casita whose tranquility is enhanced by the water splashing into an antique fountain.
An easy staircase leads up to one of the best surprises of the house – a nicely finished roof terrace which includes an expansive pergola with built in seating overlooking the delightful dipping pool and the courtyard below. This welcoming property is an easy walk to all the attractions and many restaurants of the downtown Mérida area, not to mention the Merida English Library and surrounding community.
