Villa Elena YHL 1217 $749,900
This completely renovated colonial home is located in Merida’s historic centro, just south of La Ermita.
The neighborhood of Los Cocos in the historical center of Merida is quiet and well established. It is attracting many new people from Mexico, USA/Canada and Europe, to build their dream house. Nearby is an art gallery and a new bar/ restaurant, a Soriano supermarket and the Pedro Infante Plaza and statue. Pedro Infante was a famous movie star from the early 20th Century who famously died in a plane crash in Merida. The statue commemorates the event and his contribution to Mexican cinema.
Villa Elena was build in the late 1800’s for the great grand mother of the family from whom the house was purchased by the current owner. At one time the back building served as a bakery, and the oven from the bakery has been converted into a large bathroom. Behind the house is a cul-du-sac with a playground.
The newly renovated house includes 3 bedrooms with a 4th room that could also become a bedroom, and 5 bathrooms. There are ceiling fans and air conditioners, as well as WIFI, throughout the house. There is a large detached laundry room and a separate storage room as well.
The house features pasta tile floors, original tropical hardwood doors, tall beamed ceilings and much more.
The windows are all screened, with beautiful vistas out to the lovely well-established garden, lawn and large filtered swimming pool, where you can enjoy a shaded terrace or a sunlit patio. The garden includes fruit trees, such as mango, ciricote, aguacate (avocado) and naranja (bitter orange). The lovely garden even includes a separate potting shed, as well as a fish pond with goldfish.
The house and garden are completely walled for privacy, inside of which is a large driveway for two cars, with automatic gates.
The house is being sold unfurnished but with all appliances included.
