This immaculate home is located in Merida’s historic Chen Bech neighborhood, only a block away from the excellent Mercado as well as near to many other shops, restaurants and local cantinas.
Casa del Pocito is a 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom colonial which has been remodeled and restored by a local artful builder. You can enjoy sampling life in Merida’s historic Centro from the comfort of this architectural stunner. The moment you pass through the front doors, you will feel the seamless merging of authentic Colonial architecture with the finest of what the 21st century has to offer. The foyer, living room, kitchen and dining room flow together as one communal space. The original pasta tiled floors are a constant reminder of this home’s link with Merida’s fascinating past.
Just past the fully-restored facade is a welcoming foyer which looks ahead to the well-equipped kitchen but offers views straight through to the rear courtyard of the home. The kitchen is an artful use of loads of custom wood cabinetry paired with high-end appliances to create a functional cooking space with plenty of room for entertaining friends and family. Also off of the foyer, 2 back to back living rooms offer plenty of space for both relaxing and entertaining friends and family. Adjacent to here, sits the first of the two bedrooms. This master bedroom is very spacious and offers views of the pool and direct access to the courtyard space. Its bathroom is more than gracious. The second bedroom is situated towards the rear of the property just past the artisanal well and has an en suite bath featuring custom wood closets and shelving. A laundry/storage bodega is located at the rear of the property. There are also mosquito screens, ceiling fans and air conditioners throughout the home.
After a day spent exploring Merida’s museums, art galleries and historic buildings, you will enjoy returning home to relax by or in the refreshing pool. The pool and its surrounding outdoor living and dining areas are the heart of this warm, inviting home. From here you can watch the tropical birds and contemplate your wonderful new life in Merida. This outdoor space is the ideal spot for afternoon cocktails and snacks with friends, or just a quick refreshing dip in the pool before heading back out to explore the Yucatan’s beaches, haciendas, pyramids, and quaint villages. However you choose to spend your days in Merida, this home has everything you need to make a family or two couples feel completely relaxed yet pampered.
