Featured in both Conde Nast Traveler and AFAR magazines, and thoughtfully designed by Taller Estilo Arquitectura using traditional techniques and regional materials, Casa del Limonero artfully combines an existing Colonial with a more modern, rear addition to create a very stunning but functional home. The end result is a 2 bedroom and 2.5 bath home with very high wood-beamed ceilings and antique wooden doors paired with open spaces, clean lines and a dedicated elegance all its own. All of this in a location which is very quiet but also very close to Santiago’s historic church and excellent mercado where you will find fresh, local fruits, vegetables and herbs year round, as well as fresh meats, seafood and so much more.
This wonderful home has been tastefully appointed with furniture and artwork to create a warm and relaxing place to spend days unwinding from sightseeing and exploring all that this colonial city and the surrounding areas have to offer. Not only is the location very convenient, but the home is situated on a quiet non-bus street. The first two rooms are perfect for both relaxing and entertaining friends. The modern kitchen and dining areas offer views of the courtyard and pool just beyond the opening glass wall. A large covered terrace here is where you will often find yourself.
The central courtyard is the perfect play and socializing area with its large pool, greenery and flowering plants. Invite your new friends for a dip in the pool or gather for late night drinks. There is plenty of room here to entertain or relax by the pool to take in the tropical sun. The stained concrete staircase is a functional sculptural element hinting at the Mayan pyramids of the region. A half bathroom situated just under the staircase services the pool and common spaces. Tucked away for peace and quiet at the rear of the property sits the two-story casita which houses a unique bedroom and bath suite on each floor. Each of these suites are well appointed and a small garden with greenery at the rear creates added warmth within the rooms.
This home is the perfect place to make your homebase in Merida. With shopping and local restaurants nearby, and the coast a quick drive or bus ride away, Casa del Limonero has also been an excellent rental, with guests regularly expressing their fondness of the home to us and with several returning for a second stay. Don’t pass up this opportunity to purchase an amazing home!
