This immaculate home is located in the best area of Merida’s historic center which means it is just steps away from everything which Santa Ana and Paseo de Montejo have to offer and conveniently surrounded by all of Merida’s attractions.
The 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom colonial has been remodeled and restored by the renowned architect Omar Fuentes. 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, 1st bathroom and bedroom were lovingly restored several years ago. The ceilings and original pasta tiled floors are a constant reminder of this home’s link with Merida’s fascinating past.
Just past the fully-restored colonial 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, a comfortable living room sits at the front of the home, sheltered from any street noise by specially designed glass windows. Adjacent to here, a full bathroom serves both guests and the first of the two bedrooms. This bedroom is very spacious and offers views of the pool and direct access to the courtyard space. There is an outdoor dining area just outside the kitchen which leads to a large terrace for grilling and entertaining which has a covered informal sitting area overlooking the inviting and ample pool. A retractable screen offers further shade while dining for those bright and sunny days. The second bedroom is situated at the rear of the property in its own newly-constructed casita with ensuite bath featuring custom wood closets and shelving. A storage bodega also located at the rear under the stairway has more than enough room for the mechanical systems and all of your pool toys or extra things. Up the stairs sits a covered outdoor lounging area which is the perfect place for enjoying the breezes, new friends or the nighttime sky. Back inside the home,windows along the roofline create indirect natural light for the rooms but also serve to encourage air movement and heat loss. There are mosquito screens, ceiling fans and air conditioners throughout.
After a day spent exploring Merida’s museums, art galleries and historic buildings, you will enjoy returning home to relax by the filtered 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, but also has taken energy saving to heart with inverter AC units, shaded or tinted windows and two electrical meters to reap the benefits of receiving double electrical subsidies from the government.
