Midcentury Garcia Gineres YHL1139 $347,000
This home is located in the very popular area of Garcia Gineres, just two blocks from Parque de Las Americas with its amphitheater, gardens, sculptures and fountains. It is also close to Clinica Merida, one of Merida’s finest hospitals and clinic of doctor’s offices, the hotel zone and just a quick bus ride or lovely walk to downtown and Paseo de Montejo. Garcia Gineres is actually a very desirable neighborhood because, while it is not in the centro, it is close to everything… including supermarkets, shopping, entertainment and more.
This midcentury home was probably built in the 1960s. It has the signature tall ceilings of homes in the Yucatan, as well as solid wood doors. With some updating and design, the house could be adapted to either an art deco, midcentury modern or modern style home.
This house is located on a wide street with no noise from traffic or buses. It is surrounded by other nice homes and a lot of old growth trees. There are even fruit trees on the property, which measures 137 feet squared (over 18,000 square feet in total, on a corner).
The house features four bedrooms with three bathrooms and a separate service quarter, with a large arch-lined outdoor porch providing additional outdoor living space. The large swimming pool is surrounded by a very large lot that could be cultivated into tropical and even vegetable gardens. The lot could even be subdivided, with the additional lot sold separately for as much as $150,000 USD.
