Let me warn you right up front – this house will require a lot of tough choices. For example, when you wake up in the morning, you will have to ask yourself, “Should I stay in my pajamas and have my coffee on the bedroom terrace, or should I go down to the patio and sit in front of the fountain?” When friends come over for a drink, will you gather in the living room, the manicured gardens or on the “bridge”, where you’ll be able to catch both sun and stars and hear the rustle of the leaves in the surrounding trees? Would it be better to have that dinner party in the Fiesta Room, with its dramatic handkerchief ceiling, or out in the long, cool, covered patio? And should you invite the cousins to stay in the Casita or in the guest bedroom?
Luckily there is no rush and you can take your time making these decisions. In the meantime, here’s what you can know for sure....
This home has 5 bedrooms. One is on the ground floor of the main house and is currently purposed as an office that looks out se
renely into the gardens. Three are upstairs; several include sitting areas and terraces, and all of them have a fireplace. The fifth bedroom is part of the casita, which is located on the opposite end of the property from the main house and has its own private entrance. It also features lovely French doors which open out onto a large sunny terrace.
The entire home is full of natural light and with its classic Mexican elegance, is ideal for entertaining. Apart from the main living and dining area, there are multiple spaces to host guests. In the interior of the property lies an exceptionally large expanse of grass and garden that boasts two water features, mature trees and tall, lush plants. Then there’s the covered patio, with its elegant arches and oversized planters, perfect for all seasons. Above the covered patio is the “bridge,” an exposed, upper walkway wide enough for comfortable seating and which overlooks the entire estate. The showstopper of this home is the Fiesta Room, which is large enough to include both a long dining table and seating area, and features floor to ceiling windows along three sides of the room, a wood-burning fireplace, kitchenette, and adjacent grilling area.
And finally, the location is prime. Situated just off Parque Juarez, it’s a flat 8 minute walk to Centro, perfect for vacationers and long term residents alike. Other amenities include a garage, a grand foyer, wood beam ceilings and cantera accents, pressured water and a water purification system. The home is being offered mostly furnished.
No doubt the final question you’ll be asking yourself is – how can I resist?
