Update: This property has been sold.

In the Centro, a terrace with any kind of view at all is rare. A view of the famous twin mansions on the Paseo de Montejo? The rarest of all.

This well-located home, called Casa Five 8, sits between the mansions and another French neoclassical gem, the Palacio Cantón, both built by the same architect during Mérida’s golden age.

Casa Five 8, designed for drama inside and out, is listed by Eric Partney at Mexico International.


Inside, the “wow factor” continues in the living room, where a gorgeous open, architectural staircase emphasizes the high ceilings and natural light. The tasteful and comfortable furnishings are all yours.

Casa Five 8 doesn’t sacrifice amenities for location. There are three en suite master bedrooms plus a guest bath. The media room has built-in bookcases, and the dining room has a sliding-glass wall that leads directly outside to a lap pool.

A bonus room could be a private office or artist studio. The entry hall has double-high cabinets for ample storage.

The chef’s kitchen has honed granite counter tops and custom wood cabinetry, a purified pressurized water system, and a separate laundry area. GE Profile stainless steel appliances are included.

Casa Five 8’s private rooftop terrace that takes advantage of the house’s superb slice of the Centro. Its sweeping views are a reminder that its inhabitants are just a stone’s throw from the city’s best restaurants, galleries and shops.

Sleek and dramatic, Casa Five 8 is listed by Eric Partney at Mexico International.


Here’s Casa Five 8 by the numbers:

  • Bedrooms: 3
  • Baths: 4
  • Offered at US$299,000
