This spectacular, architect designed home combines a meticulously planned layout with handsome materials to create an incomparable sanctuary in the heart of Merida’s Historic Colonia Santiago. Located just a block away from Santiago’s vibrant plaza and an easy stroll to the city’s Grand Plaza, this 4,000sf home itself provides both a tranquil retreat with specific space designated for studio use, writing and reading, as well as expansive areas perfect for entertaining. Also included in the list price is an additional separate 2 level property containing a convenient 1-car garage with beautiful upper and lower gallery spaces having professional lighting, a 3/4 bath, and an area plumbed and ready for a galley kitchen on the main level and the second level that includes additional gallery space, studio with sink and a terrace. This would be an idea space for conversion to a short term rental. From the elegantly restrained street facade, you enter the spacious vestibule providing an ideal gallery for art, and a view through the main house to the pool and garden beyond. This unique home is comprised of six separate structures starting with the historic core of the main house which opens seamlessly into a sitting room, library/office, kitchen, dining area and elegant screened porch. Additional structures include an inviting master bedroom suite with a generous bathroom and attached laundry room, two independent studios, a storage facility housing the pool equipment and, an additional freestanding storage/mechanical building. All of the structures are thoughtfully integrated within the overall layout of this home by interconnected loggias and covered walkways providing overhang, shade and rain protection. This home has every luxury and amenity - a north/south orientation to optimize airflow, ceiling fans and inverter mini split ACs, 16 solar panels, custom made cedar doors & double glazed imported Pella windows, Hunter Douglas window shades, a complete water softener & treatment system, interior/exterior security monitoring throughout, high end LED lighting perfectly configured for art, illumination, landscaping and task specific use. Other notable features include a gourmet European kitchen, state of the art closet systems, screening and a seductive 15m lap pool ! The architecture is enhanced by finishes and materials like the luminous Chihuahua marble flooring unifying the main house and the master bedroom, the Huichipan stone paving the exterior walkways and pool surround, lofty clerestory windows providing light and ventilation, and a subtle color palette of painted hand plastered walls. In the main house, the adaptable front sitting room connects with a beautifully proportioned home office/library/media room with a wall to wall adjustable shelving unit, incorporating cedar shelves within a stainless steel structure built to enable full air circulation. The Eurostyle kitchen features all Miele appliances, quartz countertops, a filtered water system and a butler’s pantry with a wine refrigerator. The kitchen opens into an ample dining area, anchored by an impressive hand made table and from there into a magnificent north facing screen porch. Towards the rear of the property, the master bedroom, a garden retreat, offers easy access to the two freestanding studio structures. While both studios were conceived for the specific art practices of the current owners/designers, both spaces are infinitely flexible. This is a property which invites reflection, relaxation and celebration, where any homeowner would look forward to enjoying every amenity the home has to offer, a dinner of fresh salad ingredients picked from the covered hydroponic garden and a sunset cocktail with cathedral views from the roof terrace.
