This property is full of surprises! A discreet, modern entrance on Calle 54 at the ideal intersection of the Santa Ana/Santa Lucia neighborhoods, opens into a series of airy, connected spaces, each one offering distinct characteristics and multiple possibilities.
Designed and built by renowned archictect/builder Omar Fuentes, this spacious home includes a garage, 3 bedrooms, each with private ensuite bathrooms, a convenient additional half bath, inviting public and social areas, a gourmet kitchen, a good sized pool, established tropical landscaping with irrigation system and even a separate loft, perfect for use as a studio/office. Consistent high ceilings throughout the property reflect the colonial core of the home, while inviting Merida’s tropical breezes. Excellent ventilation is enhanced by ceiling fans throughout the home and property.
Pass through a plant-filled center courtyard, and historic wrought iron doors welcome you into the pasta tiled entrance vestibule. From there, the open plan living/dining areas opens seamlessly into the well equipped, contemporary kitchen overlooking the pool. Up to date stainless steel appliances, handsome custom wood cabinetry, pantry, extensive shelving and ample stone countertops make a pleasant space for any serious cook, and the flexible layout optimizes easy entertaining. A stylish staircase accesses a large second floor guest suite with an attractive terrace overlooking the garden and pool.
Exiting into the back garden, a deep, covered portico provides an expansive shaded area for appealing outdoor seating and dining. A mechanical room includes a washer and dryer, an oversized water heater and the pool filtration system. Crossing the garden, a honed limestone walkway leads to a free-standing structure housing both the sizeable master bedroom suite and an additional guest suite. Both of these bedroom suites include “secret” private gardens adding both airflow and elements of tropical greenery. All three bedrooms have energy efficient inverter AC’s, all feature a clean-lined aesthetic and attractive pasta tile work; and all include substantial built-in or walk-in closets.
While this property would certainly make a lovely full or part time home, the current owner has operated it as an extremely successful short and long term rental.
