This perfectly elegant historic colonial Merida house holds a secret, a total update and upgrade by the respected architects Reyes Rios + Larrain Studio. What they’ve created here is all of the beauty and history of the original colonial house combined with all new modern conveniences such as an open kitchen with all appliances, huge and well appointed bathrooms, great tropical pool, and even a tower mirador to check out the whole peninsula.
The rooms, including two living rooms, are all arranged around three patios that work to bring light and air into the whole house. There’s plenty of room for everyone and the whole place is geared to how we live today.
The quality is impeccable everywhere, including the use of local hardwoods for the built-ins, and sturdy iron and pasta tile floors that give it a sense of permanence while still being modern and open as well. A newly installed solar array assures you stay comfortable while not breaking the bank on energy costs and use.
Indoors and outdoors blend beautifully in this grand Santiago neighborhood home.
