The moment you enter the quaint, quiet historic neighborhood of Los Cocos in Merida Centro, it’s like being transported to another time and place. This is the Mexico you are searching for and this is your opportunity to own an amazing property that was once a part of a bygone era. Villa Elena was constructed in the late 1800’s and once served as a residence along with a thriving bakery that served the community. Although fully upgraded, remnants of the past run through the home. Most prominent is the enormous original brick oven used for baking. The use of this space is by far one of cleverest ideas ever – a master bath like no other.
The home has been upgraded with every detail in mind and with quality materials. Light, bright and spacious with lots of windows – all screened. It has three to four bedrooms and five bathrooms; huge kitchen facing the beautiful backyard; stainless steel appliances; tons of counterspace; marble countertops, ceramic floors and huge breakfast bar. Formal Dining Room, living and den/office area. There is air-conditioning and fans throughout the entire house as well as Wi-Fi in all rooms.
The immaculate grounds are huge, peaceful and spectacular with wonderful fruit trees (Ciricote, Aguacate, Naranja, mango, to name a few) native plants, and peaceful garden areas. There is a placid ornamental pond inhabited by Goldfish, and of course a large amazing filtered pool. There is a convenient bathroom/dressing area next to the pool. Outbuildings include a detached storage room, detached Laundry and separate Potting Shed.
There is a large driveway for several cars with two automated gates. The entire property is completely gated for privacy. Lot size is 21×70 m (1473m2) and construction is 435m2 (4700 sq. ft.). House being sold unfurnished.
