Quinta Las Amapolas YHL1140 $690,000
Quinta Las Amapolas is named for the two huge and venerable Amapola trees that were planted many years ago in the back yard. The house is on a large lot, qualifying it as more of a quinta (a country estate) than a regular house… and yet it is located in the Santa Ana neighborhood of Merida centro… the best of both worlds!
With 98 feet of frontage and 262 feet of depth in the irregular lot, the house is unique in many ways. The driveway provides for off-street parking for up to four cars. Unlike most homes in Yucatan, this one features a beautiful front yard that allows enjoyment of the life unfolding on the quiet street outside from under the shaded front portico.
Inside, the house features 20 foot ceilings, as well as the original pasta tile floors which are polished to a fine patina. The thick walls encase 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms. This is a large home already, but there is plenty of room on the property to add additional rooms in the back, as well as plenty of room to install a swimming pool. The garden is extensive and filled with fruit trees, tropical plants and a fountain.
This home would make a perfect boutique hotel, bed & breakfast or a large home or family compound. Price is negotiable.
