This winning 3 bed/3 ½ bath home in the heart of desirable Colonia Santiago, truly checks off all the boxes — prime location, attractive layout and design, quality built by a master Merida architect. Located on an unusually secluded lot just 2 blocks from Santiago’s vibrant Plaza, Mercado and neighborhood restaurants, this property’s location optimizes Merida’s walkability and invites an easy, car free lifestyle, even though it includes a good sized garage!
Designed and built by notable architect Omar Fuentes, this inviting, move-in ready home is only 7 yrs old and built from the ground up. The pleasing Modern Mexican Style reflects a contemporary preference for airy space, good light and open plan living, but includes traditional finishes like pasta tile and Crema Maya flooring, stone sinks, warm woods and free form outdoor granite hardscape. Entering from the street, a small landscaped patio provides shade and ventilation while the double front door, set back from the street, provides additional security. The soaring, double height great-room includes a comfortable indoor living room, a spacious dining area overlooking the pool and a handsome kitchen with stylish black granite countertops and ample cabinetry. Upscale stainless steel kitchen appliances include a refrigerator, 6 burner stove, custom hood, and a dishwasher. Sliding French doors, with custom screens, open to a large shaded patio and give immediate access to a sparkling pool, fringed with lush bamboo and palm trees. The pool is both filtered AND heated. The ideal north/south exposure of the property maximizes the gulf breezes and makes this home extremely pleasant for year round indoor/outdoor living. A convenient powder room is cleverly tucked under the stairwell.
The bedroom layout is composed of two spacious master suites, stacked one above the other: Both feature spa like bathrooms with double stone sinks, and large walk in showers, extensive handcrafted closets and ample storage space. The main level master suite provides the perfect set up for the buyer who prefers single level living plus the possibility of getting out of bed and right into the pool! Both Master suites have sliding doors allowing breezy ventilation and a tropical view of patio and pool. The pleasant third bedroom suite, also with built in closet and attractive en suite bathroom, opens to a delightful private terrace overlooking the entry and open to the sky, shaded by a majestic palm tree. The laundry room with washer and dryer is adjacent to this third bedroom. A fully finished roof terrace offers a city panorama for those sunset cocktails ! Finishes and amenities throughout the home are high end, very attractive and impeccably maintained. This truly is that Merida property that needs nothing and offers everything – whether for full time living, a Winter retreat or an investment/rental.
