This is a spectacular one-of-a-kind home designed by the owners for their personal use, with the best of everything and meticulously maintained throughout. Starting with the super rare for Merida’s centro historico two car garage and small front yard with an herb garden, the house gives nothing away on the street as it blends with the historic neighborhood that surrounds it. Architecture firm Estilo Arquitectos was in charge of the construction and design, along with the owners. Since it is new construction there are no old rock walls which, while sturdy, always invite dampness issues in old houses.
Once inside however the house, which comprises what was two generous lots, opens up beautifully to a two story living space with full height windows overlooking the large patio and heated swimming pool and deck area.
The open kitchen makes it a wonderful house for entertaining casually, but there’s also a tall formal dining room as well if you prefer. There is a large service room hidden just off the kitchen, and a cozy study and guest bathroom on this floor as well.
As wonderful as the house is, the outdoor area at the back may be the most amazing of all, and the whole compound is surrounded by 7 meter tall walls There are two hidden upstairs terraces too, but the pool and garden area, along with a flexible building at the back that could be a casita or workshop, finishes off the property. The sparkling pool is the highlight, and it can be heated to your perfect temperature automatically. There’s an outdoor grill and second oven along with a serving area, and lots and lots of patio space for friends and family.
