Of the many gorgeous homes located in Merida’s Centro Historico, Casa Orquideas stands apart.

The architecture and attention to detail in every corner of this property is sublime.

The foyer is the first of many “wow features” that a visitor encounters. It’s wide and captivating.

Right after the foyer, the enormous living room has easy access to a beautiful full bathroom for the common areas.

Both kitchen and dining room have a stunning view into the exquisite pool area.

For home cooks, a real chef’s kitchen features Caesarstone countertops, two sinks with reverse-osmosis purified water systems, a high-end stove, an ice-maker fridge, dishwasher, etc.

The first bedroom is currently being used as an office; it’s the smallest of the three and it can easily fit a queen size bed. A second bedroom is very large and has a beautiful ensuite bathroom.

The large master bedroom is another “wow feature,” a stunning view to the pool and with another view into the professionally landscaped garden.

All three rooms face north to catch the prevailing breezes. The bathrooms have high–end finishes such as crema maya stone, marble and onyx lights.

A romantic feature is the outside shower surrounded by bamboo and detailed landscaping — yet very private. The roomy terrace offers terrific sight lines into the gardens.

As a cherry on the cake, Casa Orquideas includes a large garage with plenty of room for storage. That’s hard to find in the Centro.

Casa Orquideas is offered at US$319,000. This is an incredible price for a renovated property over 10,000 square feet and with all these amenities.
