THIS COZY HOUSE HAS EVERYTHING YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!!
Open the gate to a courtyard lush with olive trees, ferns, flowers, and cacti, and feel as if you were in Provence. Looking up to the roof you see a unique stone house.
As you walk through the main patio you see a stone fountain and next to it a completely independent cozy one-room spacious casita (guest house), with its full bathroom with elegant talavera tile. Above the casita is an art STUDIO with huge windows, work sink and toilet, also an electric for kiln if you happen to do pottery instead of painting.
The patios on either side of the main door are perfect for outdoor dining, coffee/cocktails, or simply relaxing.
Enter the house and you can look through to an atrium with a water feature and its calming sound, also there is a powder room. The comfortable living room has a fireplace to warm you up during chili winter nights, this is also an added feature to embellish the open concept design where the living opens to a spacious kitchen and dining area.
All throughout the second floor of this marvelous home you will find boveda ceilings. This story has a library/TV room, and two comfortable bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom with talavera tile. The floors are the traditional Mexican saltillo pavers (barro), and some of the walls are in stone. The master has a spacious closet space with nice carpentry work, and a romantic balcony where two can sit to enjoy the sound of birds and water trickling from the courtyard fountain.
Even though everywhere you see there is something beautiful and unique in this house, the highlight is the amazing roof-top terrace with a glassed in area for relaxing and entertaining, and views that take your breath away. On this level you also have the sunny area and laundry room.
Among the most important features to be highlighted are:
Triple water purification system with new filters each year
Motion detector lights
Camera (currently not in operation)
2 water features
Casita with Open kitchen and full bathroom
2 modern gymnasiums, one with swimming pool & sauna.
At the end of a unique and beautiful cul-de-sac in the up and coming Colonia San Rafael (where one still finds authentic Mexico) sits this whimsical Colonial style with a Mexican Contemporary touch, built in 2008. The neighborhood is a wonderful mix of gringos and Mexicans. There are locals' favourite restaurants, and mom and pop's little convenience stores in every direction to buy your basic groceries. Businesses like a massage therapy center, dentists, carpenters, metal workers, cafes, etc., and an easy 5 minute walk down the hill to the MERCADO San Juan de Dios. There is a convenient bus service to the center of town and back, Route 4 in case you decide to take an easy ride instead of walking.
