Step past the elegantly restored façade into the impressive Grand Sala of this beautifully appointed historic home and you know immediately that you have entered a very special place. Located near Colonia San Sebastian’s ancient church and leafy surrounding park, this spacious 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom home includes an additional freestanding stone casita plus bathroom and the entire property exudes an atmosphere of romance, sophistication and charm. Originally renovated by noted Merida architect Victor Cruz and significantly enhanced by the current owner, herself a designer, this impeccably maintained home is move in ready. This is a home which respects and celebrates its history and also acknowledges all the necessary priorities for comfortable modern living. From the Grand Sala/Living Room, a gleaming original pasta tile floor invites you to stroll through a pleasing gallery/foyer into the rest of the house. An open plan layout, including a generously proportioned kitchen, dining room and garden view sunroom is framed by an imposing wall of hand crafted, glass paned iron doors leading out to the covered patio, spectacular gardens and lap pool. The 2 bedrooms, interchangeable master suites, are both conveniently located to provide separation and privacy. Both bedrooms connect directly with lovely bathrooms featuring modern amenities — the first bedroom is located off the foyer and the second is at the back of the main house overlooking the gardens.
From the comfort of the breezy shaded loggia, look past the billowing curtains and you begin to have a sense of the beauty that lies just beyond. The extraordinary garden and pool are truly the heart of this home. Unusual native plantings, lovingly tended by the owner, lead the eye along the stone pathway bordering the lap pool to that secret stone casita – perfect for use as a home office, meditation room or additional guest accommodations.
Features throughout the home are of the highest standard and include handsome oversized doors and windows with operable ventilation panels, beautifully maintained pasta tile floors, Leathered black marble kitchen island, security cameras, custom lighting, built in closets and built in butler’s pantry with wine refrigerator. This is a home that should be seen to be fully appreciated!
