We take great pleasure in welcoming you to Santa Ana’s Casa Salchicha! This fully-restored colonial was lovingly designed and renovated by renowned local architect Roger Gonzalez. Situated in the heart of Centro on Calle 66 and in the most sought after neighborhood of Santa Ana, this is the ideal home for your first or next visit to Merida.
Just past the two-story colonial facade you will marvel at the extra-high ceilings on all floors, grand archways, plentiful niches, and stately marble columns which every colonial should have, but also notice the abundance of natural lighting and airflow accomplished by skylights, windows, expansive, opening walls of glass and ceiling fans placed throughout the home. The large entry foyer opens into an expansive indoor living area which flows effortlessly thru a large column-supported archway into the stupendous culinary kitchen which boasts a large center work island with undermount sink and built-in seating, endless granite countertops, bountiful wooden cabinetry, stainless steel appliances, and every small appliance or device a chef could need. The whole home is screened to enjoy the natural breezes pest free but also air-conditioned for escaping the heat whenever and wherever desired.
Perched above this entire downstairs area on the second floor, sits the luxurious master bedroom suite. This expansive suite features a spacious walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom with dual vanities, and double glass-filled archways supported by a center stone column. Both archways feature french doors leading to a large terrace with pasta tiled floor overlooking the pool and center courtyard. Here you will also find the wide spiral staircase leading to the third floor terrace which offers excellent views of the main cathedral in plaza grande. On the other side of the master suite, just off the bathroom, is the ample front terrace with views of the surrounding neighborhood but also secluded enough for privacy at the same time.
Back down the stairs, the entire kitchen wall opens to a covered outdoor living and dining area featuring pasta tiled floors, an archway supported by stone columns, accent lighting, built-in speakers, and views of the landscaped center courtyard. The courtyard has the original mamposteria stone walls exposed and a good-sized filtered pool. Past the swimming pool sits the two-story guest casita which houses the other two grand bedrooms each with ensuite bathrooms, built-in closets, and their own sitting terraces which overlook the pool and courtyard area. This property is extremely long, so as an added bonus, both of the casita bedrooms also enjoy second sitting terraces in the rear with views of the mature trees, plants, and flowering buganvilias of the rear garden. All of the bedrooms also feature black-out curtains, just in case you decide to sleep in a little late while on vacation.
Casa Salchicha is truly unique home with every bedroom having terraces front and rear for relaxing or gathering for cocktails with new acquaintances. The outside living area is the perfect place for discussing that day’s adventure in the historic city or tomorrow’s plans for a Yucatan excursion. The location could not be better for walking to the many local attractions or restaurants of Centro, being on Calle 66, only 3 blocks from Parque Santa Ana and 5 short blocks from Paseo de Montejo. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
