Casa Cocodrilo is available for sale at Mérida Living Real Estate.

Casa Cocodrilo is a spacious, bright, airy, colonial-era home in Merida’s bustling Centro Histórico.

Elegant and welcoming, Casa Cocodrilo embraces you immediately as you enter and continues to delight as you explore it.

While tastefully updated and well-maintained, an aura of the past remains. With three large bedrooms and a lush tropical landscaped backyard that’s home to birds, flowers, and a lovely pool, Cocodrilo is a design lovers’ oasis.

Casa Cocodrilo is available for sale at Mérida Living Real Estate.

This large property includes the wide and stately main house and a rear casita connected by a private walled garden. The main casa features a large entry foyer, a formal dining room, a highly functional kitchen with plenty of workspaces, an ample living room that melds into a long screened-in dining porch, a large bedroom, full bathroom, a laundry/utility closet and a garage. The 19-foot tall ceilings, pasta tiles floors, and rustic wooden doors are original, reflecting timeless solid construction and simpler times. Ceiling fans keep the fresh air moving. The bedroom and dining room are air-conditioned.

Walk through the backyard to the master suites casita. Two generously sized master bedrooms, each with a full bathroom, are connected by a reading/cocktail terrace. The casita offers privacy and tranquility.

Views of the garden are had from both the main casa and the casita, even at night when the backyard’s tasteful lighting illuminates the evenings. In the morning, don’t be surprised to see or hear the flock of parrots that fly over the back of the property heading west, returning eastward late in the afternoon.

Located between the Santa Ana neighborhood and the hotel district, Cocodrilo is less than a five-minute walk from the grand boulevard, Paseo de Montejo, and its restaurants, coffee shops, banks, museums and Sunday community bike ride. The popular Saturday-morning Slow Food Market is an eight-minute walk up Avenida Reforma. Only a 20-minute stroll to the Plaza Grande and a convenient car ride to any place in the historic downtown or the ultra-modern and expanding north, or to the beaches beyond.

Proximity to the new convention center and the lively courtyard restaurant and boutique shopping complex, Paseo 60, add to Casa Cocodrilo’s popularity as a vacation rental.
