Contemporary Living in Santiago

9 March 2016 For Sale in Yucatan 3

This contemporary and renovated colonial is a hidden gem in the midst of one of the most popular expat enclaves in Merida. Located on a quiet street in the Santiago section of Merida, this modern loft-style home has everything you need for a pied-a-terre in Merida, an easy-to-maintain home and garden that you can enjoy when you are there, and lock up and leave when you want to travel. It is just three blocks from Santiago Park, with its stores, pharmacy, mercado, restaurants, movie theater and church. On Tuesday nights every week, Santiago Park is the place where Merida gathers to listen to live music and dance under the stars... a lovely tradition that you can easily enjoy when you live here.

The house is also within walking distance to the Plaza Grande and all the attractions of the historic centro of Merida, as well as the Centennario Zoo and Parque de la Paz. Despite all this, the house is located on one of the quieter streets of downtown Merida.

The house features two stories of spacious and airy space, with polished concrete and mosaico tile floors. Downstairs, the living and dining area open to the modern and open kitchen with an attractive pasta tile backsplash. The first floor also has a half bathroom, as well as storage space and laundry space.

The second floor has a well-illuminated, airy and spacious bedroom and bathroom. The bathroom also features blue and white pasta tiles as a wall feature. Outside, a large ceiba tree, the sacred tree of the Maya, provides shade for the backyard and creates a lovely garden atmosphere.

The swimming pool is 26 feet long... perfect for swimming laps or just lounging and cooling off. The backyard has enough space to build an additional one or two-story casita with additional rooms.

Because of its size and location, this home will also make an excellent vacation rental.\
