Revisioning Colonial in Merida: SOLD!

Colonial home for sale in Merida Yucatan

Colonial Home Revisioned

This colonial home on Calle 57 in Merida’s centro historico has been raised from the level of plain and simple to magnificently modern. Using all the best of the colonial architecture in Merida, this house has been revisioned by local architects Mercedes Sanchez and Alvaro Cervera to a home that supports a modern lifestyle, while keeping all the best features for which Merida architecture is becoming so well known. In this home, you’ll find pasta tile floors, high ceilings with original but repainted vigas, polished cement and light, airy spaces that take advantage of the beautiful Yucatan weather. There is even an indoor garden space for green plants, with a skylight… just another feature that blurs the lines between indoors and outdoors… a welcome feature in the tropical climate of Merida.

The kitchen features quartz stone countertops with a built in stainless steel sink, a built in stove with oven, a roomy pantry and a lovely view through the dining room to the backyard patio, garden and swimming pool. There is recessed lighting throughout, as well as skylights and large floor-to-ceiling sliding glass doors.

Indoors and Outdoors in the Yucatan

The patio looking out onto the garden and pool is shaded and the floor is covered in aqua blue pasta tiles, echoing the blue of the swimming pool beyond. The swimming pool is filtered, surrounded by a terraced garden and a backdrop of a patterned tile wall. There is a bodega by the pool for outdoor storage. For those warm summer nights, there is even an upstairs roof terrace… a perfect place to sit and enjoy a morning coffee or a drink at sunset.

  1. It’s nice but a lot out of my price range,

  2. Hello. I was wondering about how much money was invested to make the property look like this? I’m planning to do the same. I also wonder what it looked like before.
