Easily reached from Merida (25 min ), this enchanting, small hacienda would make the perfect weekend home, yoga retreat, horse farm or small hotel, etc. San Jose Pachul is reachable (within one km) via a brand new highway. Yet when you turn into the private drive, it is a sanctuary of peace and tranquility set among extensive tropical gardens. The house has a long private drive and is surrounded and protected by almost 32 acres. The views from most rooms of the countryside and gardens are nothing short of breathtaking.
The former “casa de maquinas” of a former sisal hacienda was transformed by one of Merida’s leading architects into a creative and innovative home that boasts three bedroom suits and a main house with soaring colonial ceilings. This house has everything from roof terraces, private gardens off of bedrooms, huge bathrooms, an amazing bar area, both visitor and service bathrooms, an industrial kitchen area (sufficient for handling a possible country restaurant) and an old alberca ingeniously made into a stunning pool, etc. Four “casas Mayas” could be made into more bedrooms as well as there being an almost infinite area for more new construction to be added to the hacienda nucleus.
This property needs to be seen to be believed. San Jose is the perfect opportunity to live “lost in the country” yet within easy reach of both Merida and nearby beaches. As a former hacienda owner, I would be pleased not only to give you more information, but also be able to inform you of the many possibilities, opportunities and realities of owning such a property.
