COUNTRY LIVING ON MÉRIDA'S DOORSTEP
If you dream about a peaceful setting outside the city, but don't want to be far from all that Mérida has to offer, this contemporary hacienda-style home in Fraccionamiento Tamanche is the perfect option for you, situated only ten minutes from Merida shopping and ten minutes from Progreso. This house is built to Canadian standards by the architect/owner, who has lived there full time since its completion in 2013. The lot is 20m x 50m, completely walled in with electric gate access and two covered parking spaces inside the property.
The living space is divided into two buildings, with a total of two bedrooms plus a spacious studio (which could be used as a third bedroom, art studio, or playroom) and two full bathrooms. The main building (with three steps to the front door and wheelchair access as well), consists of the Great room (living room with built-in wood bookcases, dining room, kitchen with built in breakfast table and bar), master bedroom, bathroom and laundry room with ample storage shelves. The second building consists of the guest bedroom, bathroom, and large studio. Both buildings are built 60cm above street level, and all of the floors and terraces are correctly sloped, so flooding is not an issue during heavy tropical rainfalls.
All rooms face the spacious covered terrace with swimming pool (7 m x 3.70 m). There is air conditioning in all rooms except bathrooms, and ceiling fans in all rooms. The passive design is based on the original way that haciendas were built, with cross breezes in all directions, taking advantage of natural air flow to minimize the need for air conditioning... something that is not easy to achieve in the city center!
This detail, combined with the fact that the house is wired to Canadian standards - utilizing the correct gauge of wires throughout the house - means that the electric bils are extreme low. There is provision for connection to solar panels from the roof to the laundry room where the electrical panel is located, if desired.
There is a separate structure for the mechanical room, containing access to the deep water well (18 meters deep) with pump to bring water to the rooftop tinaco, irrigation and pool pumps, and emergency power generator. The landscaped area includes a mixture of mature ornamental fruit trees and flowering plants. There is an abundant variety of birds who are attracted to the plants and trees, who serenade the property with their beautiful songs.
Included in the price: washing machine, gas stove, brand new fridge, AC units, ceiling fans, light fixtures, potted plants. Separate furniture package available upon request. Building permit drawings, as-built drawings, and a practical maintenance schedule will be provided to the buyer.
This beautiful, unique home will provide its new owners with a peaceful fifestyle in a lovely, secure setting
