This unique urban getaway, an elegant modernist renovation of a historic home embellished with authentic fresco elements, combines gracious colonial architecture with all the amenities for a comfortable, contemporary lifestyle. Located on a wide quiet street in desirable Santa Ana, this home is just a two block walk to fashionable Paseo Montejo and to Calle 47, the city’s newest most vibrant restaurant district. The property opens into a grand high-ceiling living room with ample space for social gatherings and the possibility of an in-home office or media area. The beautifully restored west wall is punctuated by two clean lined oversized doorways, a handsome modern staircase ascends to the guest bedroom/bath suite cantilevered over the pleasant pool in the center patio below. The thoughtful layout of this home optimizes a design which provides numerous airy spaces, flexible possibilities and a comfortable sense of privacy between the two bedroom suites.
The living room opens into an expansive eat-in kitchen with custom designed solid wood cabinets, polished concrete countertops and high end stainless steel appliances. Accessed directly from the kitchen, a large indoor/outdoor sitting area reinterprets the idea of a screen porch with floor to ceiling panels offering protection, ventilation and easy access to the pool and garden area. The courtyard garden is
highlighted by a lovely stone wall, an artisan feature that has become a signature of noted architect/builder Omar Fuentes. At the rear of the property, the inviting master suite looking back out over the pool and leafy palm trees, includes a roomy bathroom with numerous built in closets and the unexpected surprise of a small, enclosed private garden.
This exceptional home has been fastidiously maintained, is move-in ready and will be sold partially furnished.
