This is a huge and luxurious historic home in the heart of the Santiago neighborhood of Merida. The fachada itself measures 23 meters, and is set among many other restored homes of value, and is just around the corner from the Merida English Library and within easy walking distance to all of the best of Merida’s centro historico.
There’s a large entrance hall with rooms on each side and looking into the light filled living room, all with 5 meter tall beamed ceilings. The original pasta tiles are here too, as well as the thick rock walls as it was originally built. The formal dining room is off the living room, and a bright and airy eat-in kitchen makes cooking a pleasure.
While the house is wonderful, it’s the enormous park-like garden that is such a surprise in the middle of the city. Old growth trees and lawns surround the house and the tempting swimming pool and cold/hot tub… a wonderful place to enjoy yourself, or to invite dozens of your friends to join you.
Lots of service areas surround the bedrooms, and a very rare double garage is a great perk.
The house has an existing fideicomiso which makes assuming possession that much smoother. It would not be possible to duplicate this size house in this great location for this price, and even if you found the house or houses to remodel, it might be a year or two before it was finished, whereas this is move-in ready now. It would also be relatively easy to make this into B+B, and given its amazing location, that would be a wise investment.
