Situated on 2,232 square meters (over half an acre), Quinta La Herradura has it all! There are many additional buildings making up this private and securely walled compound which has everything you could ask for in a country retreat.
At the end of the entry sidewalk, you will find a welcoming, covered front porch; perfect for enjoying a peaceful day while sitting on the couch swing. Entering the home’s large front door, you will discover a mix of the old and new with a blending of concrete, wood, archways, skylights, and glass block details. The flow of the home is ideal for both airflow and everyday living with abundant natural light, windows, and sliding glass doors for taking full advantage of the indoor/outdoor living style of the Yucatan. This main home boasts two living areas, a modern kitchen with wood cabinets and a center island, an attached breakfast nook (currently used as the home office), and a bonus room with a bar area. The spacious and air conditioned master bedroom suite has two large closets, one of which is a walk-in, and two sets of sliding glass doors leading to the covered terrace. The master bath has natural stone countertops with stone vessel sinks, as well as a large stone-tiled shower with glass block wall. The guest bedroom is bathed in natural light, has ample built-in closets, and is serviced by a large bathroom with an equally large, jetted tub.
Every room of the home offers easy access to the surrounding exterior spaces, where you are sure to spend most of your time. Located just off of the living and dining rooms, the exterior sitting and dining areas occupy the expansive covered terrace. The tiled terrace has columns, rock walls, and skylights, creating a gracious space for entertaining friends with food fresh off of the outdoor grill. It also overlooks the incredible 7 meter by 12 meter, fully-tiled and filtered pool with attached 5 square meter jacuzzi. This pool is huge! On the opposite side of the pool is a covered building which houses the pool bathroom and is a great place for lounging or enjoying a game of ping pong. There are also two decorative fountains, one of which pours into the pool.
The grounds are extensive and contain many fruit bearing trees; such as banana, orange, and mango. There are also several additional buildings which could serve a variety of uses. There is a long storage building with two separate rooms, an elevated birdhouse (perfect for parrots), and a cottage which would make a great home office, workshop, or artist studio. At the rear of the property is the 8 meter by 8 meter gym which has high ceilings, ceiling fans, sliding glass doors, and a mirrored wall. The gym floor also retains the design of the cock fighting ring from long ago. Behind the gym is the currently functioning chicken yard and coupe. Keep this area for fresh eggs for your home, or make it your private garden. The guest cottage is located through a gated archway, at the end of its own entry sidewalk. It has a covered porch in front and also houses the two complete laundry rooms of the Quinta. The cottage contains a large air conditioned bedroom with ensuite bathroom with stone vessel sink and countertop and stone-tiled, glass shower.
This Quinta is a restful country retreat but with the convenience of only a five minute drive to the periferico, Altabrisa Mall, and Star Medica. Don’t pass up this chance to own the home of your dreams!
