This home is located only 5 blocks from the main square and 3 blocks from Parque Santiago in Centro. It features 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms, original Pasta floors and colonial ceilings.

This house was once operated as a very successful Bed and Breakfast since 3 of the 4 bedrooms are separate from the main casa and each provide complete privacy. Alternatively it is a perfect house to live in and enjoy receiving friends and family. The home also features a well-equipped kitchen with dishwasher, several living areas, room for an office if desired, several outside covered entertaining areas and laundry. There are 2 pools, 1 deep pool and 1 kid friendly pool, or for the adults, a pool to sit in and sip cocktails during Merida’s warm summer days.

The gardens are plentiful with lush vegetation and provide amazing serenity from the hustle and bustle of Centro. The irregular lot size is 8.30m on the street front but extends to 14.40m where the pools and main gardens are. The length of the block is approximately 54m. This is a very large property for Centro.
