Dulzura y encanto … a Mexican two-story home located in a tranquil, gated setting with an enormous private garden of year-round blooming flowers and fruit trees tended by a fulltime community gardener. The home has traditional boveda ceilings with windowed cupolas, and predominantly faces east, south and west. Light-filled, sunny and year-round pleasant, its many windows and French doors provide great cross ventilation and pretty views. Three (gas) fireplaces (and a den ceiling fan with reversible draw add to further coziness when that fireplace is going) take the chill out of winter. The house has a water purification system.
One ensuite bedroom downstairs has access to a fountain courtyard. A very large master suite with a Juliet balcony overlooking the private garden and another ensuite guest bedroom that looks down upon the fountain courtyard are upstairs. Great closets (two are wall-to-wall) and storage spaces in bed and bathrooms. A dramatic lit, glass and mirror showcase highlights the foot-friendly stairwell.
Magnificent and huge custom-designed Talavera kitchen with matching breakfast bar, incredible counter space, storage, and a cook’s three-door pantry (6X6X23 inches) with adjustable shelves. Utility room (washer/dryer/sink/maid’s Moroccan-tiled bathroom) plus a storage room are off the kitchen.
This home has perfect party flow, with French doors leading to the Moravian star-lit garden sala, the calla lily and honeysuckle fountain courtyard, and more. There is a downstairs powder room with brass sink and fittings for your guests, who also can avail themselves of the downstairs bedroom’s facilities that include a wonderful Mexican glass sink lit from underneath. From intimate candlelight dinners to parties and barbecues, this house has the perfect bones.
Located in a secure, gated enclave comprising 20 homes. Days are for enjoying the serenity, being part of a welcoming community, or even a 15-minute walk to town. Street lights enable post-dinner and after-dark strolls. Because it is a flowering community and near El Charco del Ingenio, many varieties of songbirds appear all day long.
