Have you considered Colonia Itzimna for your next home? Most new residents to Merida often consider the more Centro neighborhoods such as Santa Ana or Santiago, but once settled are pleasantly surprised to learn what Colonia Itzimna offers. Still centrally located, but away from the noise and smog of downtown, Itzimna is only a 15-minute stroll to Paseo Montejo and walking distance to several cafes and restaurants. Colonia Itzimna is also strategically located for easier access to the northern parts of the city.

Casa Itzimna 86D is a new project by Merida Office of Design and Architecture (MODA), two blocks from Parque Itzimna, which like most colonias, has its own church, shady trees, benches, and food and produce vendors — a wonderful park to spend quiet evenings outdoors. However, with the airy and light-filled design of Casa Itzimna 86D, you might not ever want to leave home.

MODA’s projects are exemplified by its principal’s many years practicing in California. The firm’s design always considers the flow of air, light and visual relationships to the exterior. These sensibilities lend themselves well to the climate of Merida. MODA specializes in a contemporary approach to design, but with a great appreciation and respect for history, especially the colonial architecture of Merida.

Casa Itzimna 86D features a light-filled double-height living room, which opens to the dining area and kitchen with sliding doors that open completely to a private entry courtyard. On the lower level is an ensuite bedroom overlooking the pool, and upstairs are two more ensuite bedrooms as well as a media room. The backyard and courtyard are designed to be low maintenance and features the requisite pool for hot days as well as space for outdoor dining and entertaining. The home has a lot of built-in storage and cabinetry and many other wonderful details that should be experienced in person.
