The owners of this amazing historic home coordinated with a well respected local architect to create a one-of-a-kind home in the center of Merida. The Santiago neighborhood is one of the most desirable places to live in Merida, with its markets and easy walkability to all the sights of Merida, and living here you are in the heart of it all.
The house and facade itself is from the middle of the last century, but once you enter you are transformed into a clean and modern space where everything is new and hand selected by the owners from the very best available worldwide. Even the Minke ceiling fans are specially selected for each room and are works of art in themselves. Speaking of art, the entrance to the home is through the original huge living room with 18’ ceilings and original wood doors, currently being used as the owner’s own private art gallery.
The attention to detail is evident in everything you see and touch and interact with. All of the windows are thermal pane high strength aluminum with a black satin finish and integrated screens. All switches are Leviton and there is whole-house surge protection. The appliances in the kitchen are Miele, and there are Kovacs lights indoors and out. Running all of this are 40 solar panels on the roof, keeping electric bills nearly non-existent.
The rim-less lap pool is useful and completes the look of the garden, with mature landscaping and even a small grass yard at the back. All systems are conveniently yet discreetly located behind elegant aluminum doors.
The whole house is very special and the walls are finished in a specially mixed plaster to obtain the depth of color. The bathrooms are unique in each of the three master suites and feature special tiles, finishes, and fixtures. Air-flow is great throughout the house and most windows face north to the pool and garden. The house is being sold furnished (list of all inclusions is available to serious buyers) and the furniture itself is, like the rest of the property, the highest quality and not available locally.
Besides several public rooms for various purposes, all bedroom suites are very separate from each other. The house is very secure and safe, details of which are available through me.
If you are looking for a fully finished and furnished house in the best part of Merida, this is it.
