Casa Maya YHL1087 $159,000
This charming colonial is located between Santa Ana and Santa Lucia, close to everything in downtown Merida. This perfect little city home is close to shopping, some of the best restaurants in town and is only four blocks to the main Plaza Grande.
From the moment you step inside these doors you feel the warmth and charm of traditional Merida, enhanced by the stone walls, the original mosaico floors and the warm colors. There is an entrance room, living room, large kitchen, four bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms.
The interior courtyard in wired in to protect from mosquitoes, making it a lovely place to spend hours reading, writing or just enjoying the enclosed tropical garden. The old water tank has been converted into an outside bathroom.
Follow the tropical garden path to the staircase that takes you to an upstairs open air palapa-covered room. This is a great place to entertain in the evenings, hang a hammock for a nap or give a yoga class.
Between the beautiful old pasta tile floors, the central patio, the wonderful original wooden colonial doors, and the entrance columns that greet you when you open the door, the place just oozes Yucatecan charm.
The lot is 8 by 37 meters deep, and there is room to put a pool in the center courtyard. Real estate is all about location, and this colonial has a great location, making it a wonderful candidate for a vacation rental as well as a home.
