Merida Urban Retreat YHL 1204 $1,100,000
Luxurious Retreat in the Heart of Mérida
This 5 bedroom3 bath house is being sold completely furnished, and is move-in ready.
This one-of-a-kind urban retreat will make you feel at home the moment you enter its breathtaking interior spaces. It was originally built for the son of Generalissimo Francisco Gregorio Canton by the Italian architect Enrico Desarti, who also built the Peon Contreras Theater and the Palacio Canton (currently housing the Anthropology Museum on Paseo Montejo).
The interior furnishings are Classic European, selected by internationally recognized interior designer Steven Cheroski when it was his own home. The restoration architect, Henry Ponce, won Architectural Digest’s first place prize for Authentic Restoration in 2008 and the home has been featured in Architectural Digest, The Robb Report, and Ambientes magazines. Fully restored in 2005, this home has been impeccably maintained and consistently upgraded to the standards of the discriminating buyer.
