  • Casa Nacira, one of the most outstanding art deco properties on the market, is listed by Merida Living Real Estate.

In one of Merida’s prettiest neighborhoods, where grand homes line the street, sits one of the most outstanding art deco properties on the market.

Casa Nacira’s facade is pristine and is surrounded by lush gardens. And rare for the Centro, this beautiful home has parking for five or more cars. And the location, in Col. Alcala Martin just north of the historic center and hotel zone, has easy access north to shopping and the beach. It’s also walkable to the Paseo de Montejo and a sports stadium with space to exercise.

The home has been meticulously cared for. Entering the very welcoming foyer, visitors first notice stunning pasta tiles in perfect shape. The “floor show” continues throughout the property with different colors and patterns.

The downstairs also features two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, an office, a living room, dining room and a kitchen. In the patio area, a large terrace is perfect for entertaining and the entire backyard cries out for a garden party. The lovely swimming pool and a convenient service room with a full bathroom round out the outside amenities

Upstairs, two more well-proportioned bedrooms, sharing a full bathroom and a beautiful balcony, cap this historic gem.
