As Mérida becomes an ever more desirable and popular destination, whether for vacation, a tropical winter escape or full time living, a property like this is a standout and increasingly hard to find. This beautiful, impeccably maintained, historic home, ideally located only 2 short blocks from the city’s famed Paseo Montejo in Colonia Santa Ana, offers the much sought-after combination of distinctive charm and modern comfort.
Built at the turn of the 20th century, this home is a showcase example of soaring 16ft ceilings, original pasta tile floors, handsome Art Deco architectural features with authentic doors and windows throughout.
From the airy entranceway, these same elegant doors open left and right into two equally spacious rooms, most recently configured as a welcoming indoor living room and an oversized office/media room. Both rooms feature pasta tile in pleasing color palates and mullion paned windows providing defused daylight and the option for natural ventilation.
From the vestibule you can already glimpse the stone framed pool, the lion’s head fountain and the blue sky above. Step into the amply proportioned kitchen/dining area and the pool comes fully into view through wrought iron doors leading to the deep, covered patio, ideal for outdoor dining and a little sunbathing after a swim! The open plan kitchen features a striking granite topped breakfast bar, perfect for casual entertaining. The easy maintenance garden/courtyard is defined by flagstone hard scape and mature plantings, and even includes a seductive, custom designed, stonewalled outdoor shower!
Both inviting bedrooms include en-suite bathrooms with unique and thoughtful finishes and both rooms provide plenty of space for a desk or seating area. The master suite is truly exceptional with an enormous bathroom that includes double hand-hewn sandstone sinks, a large walk in shower and a black jacuzzi bathtub set into a slate platform. This bedroom provides direct access to the courtyard and pool area.
This special home provides a unique opportunity to move right in and start enjoying Merida’s justly celebrated indoor/outdoor lifestyle. The property has a long and successful proven rental record, so it’s also an excellent investment.
