This stylish contemporary home located in Merida Centro’s desirable Colonia Santiago, combines eye-catching design with eco-friendly construction materials and smart home technology to create a uniquely winning package! Entering from the quiet street, a palm filled courtyard creates a pleasant transition into the airy, open plan living space. Throughout this home, well-chosen upscale finishes, including uniform flooring of “wood plank” ceramic tile flooring, make for optimal comfort and convenience. Adjacent to the living area is a chic and artsy powder room featuring a glass bowl sink mounted an antique treadle sewing machine base. Throughout the property, air flow and diffused light are enhanced by a thoughtful layout, well placed skylights and inviting floor to ceiling sliding glass doors.
From the comfortably ample living area, a dramatic double height modern staircase frames the attractive kitchen and dining areas. The fully equipped chef’s kitchen includes granite countertops, a good-sized kitchen island, custom cabinets, large double sink, dishwasher, cooktop, vent hood, built in oven and microwave and large refrigerator. Both the kitchen and indoor dining area overlook the colorful patio and the sparkling filtered mosaic tiled pool. A shady outdoor loggia invites al fresco dining and lazy afternoons on a poolside lounger, and every dip in the pool includes the added delight of swimming beneath the magical gaze of the distinctive Toh Bird mural – sacred bird of the Maya people. Also tucked outside behind the kitchen is the convenient bodega accommodating a full-size washer/dryer, along with the pool and water systems and of course storage.
Back inside, the dazzling custom steel floating staircase pays a witty homage to Mérida’s architectural history with treads made from a colorful collage of traditional past style tiles decorated with flora and fauna. The second floor offers two spacious bedrooms, each with en-suite bathrooms and a pretty landing, ensuring a sense of space and privacy. The master bedroom, overlooking the pool at the back of the house includes a large walk-in closet and a full-size bathroom with rain shower with an expansive granite vanity with double sinks. The roomy second bedroom offers guests a nice custom closet, a comfortable work area, should that need arise, and of course another great bathroom.
