This inviting property, designed and built by award winning architect Victor Cruz of Estiloarquitectura, seamlessly integrates two lovely, historic rooms into a comfortable and beautifully conceived modern home.
An attractive façade opens into a pleasant foyer, a space offering both storage and an ample area for a desk. This reception area connects to the heart of the house, a large great room style family room which includes the living and dining areas along with a contemporary open kitchen. This terrific room cleverly combines function and style, features full size cabinets and a large custom designed table and overlooks the garden pool area beyond. Adjacent to the kitchen area is a pantry, laundry and mechanical room.
The master bedroom suite is upstairs and showcases a signature Estiloarquitectura design with a floor to ceiling glass wall. This room enjoys an idea orientation, facing north so it never gets direct sunlight. The suite includes a huge walk-in closet and a magnificent bathroom with a rare claw-foot bathtub! The second bedroom is at street level at the front of the house, located in one of the original historic rooms and features a soaring ceiling with traditional beams. The bathroom off this guest bedroom is also convenient for public space use.
This ideal property, centrally located between Santa Ana and Santa Lucia, offers an urban haven in the midst of Merida’s most vibrant restaurant and retail hub. This home could work equally well for full-time living, an enjoyable winter escape and has great potential for vacation rental too.
The safest city in Latin America, Merida is rated one of the very best cities to retire in Mexico. Merida offers colonial charm, excellent healthcare services, Gulf Coast beaches only 40 minutes from Centro and the cost of living is extremely attractive. While Yucatan real estate is still affordable, the prices continue to go up. This is definitely the time to consider a real estate purchase in the Yucatan.
