HOME FOR SALE CASA ANCIRA

Miguel Blanco #13, Ajijic,, Chapala, Jalisco, 45920, Ajijic Village

USD $ 695,000

This 3 bedroom 4 bath home is that rarest of finds – a stylish home in the heart of the village with spacious off street parking on a quiet street. It features a large double garage with automatic doors with parking for 2 cars. A central lush courtyard divides public entertaining spaces from private bedrooms for restful sleep. AND it is being sold fully furnished INCLUDING artwork.

The soaring wooden double street doors are nestled behind matching double grill doors and have traditional portals that open for light and air. They lead to an entry foyer and thru another decorative grill to the entry hallway. Items like this framed hand woven and embroidered Huipil poncho as well as this hand carved St Francis statue speak to the love of Mexico that makes this home and its contents such a treasure.

The courtyard shows that you never know what lies behind a street wall. Soaring palms, lush ferns, flowering plants and orchids, Cantera stone pavers, Mexican tile, an outdoor umbrellaed table with comfortable rattan chairs, a sun lounger AND a stunning bar pavilion with his and hers half baths for guests. This is all surrounded by pillars and arches that frame our entrance hallway and master bedroom terrace and straight ahead frame an entertaining terrace with wrought iron chandeliers, dining for 8 and an al fresco living room.

The flow in this house is amazing. Straight ahead double glass sliding doors lead us inside to the living room. The focal point is this hand painted tile mural on the chimney breast as it soars up 12 feet. Skylights flank the fireplace flooding this interior space with natural soft light.

To the left thru an archway is a more casual TV den with another set of double glass sliding doors that lead back to the terrace, another set of skylights and one of the most beautiful hand painted cabinets hiding tv and electronics I have ever seen. Casual elegance personified.

To the right of the living room another archway leads to the kitchen. High ceilings with 2 more skylights, stunning soaring wooden cabinets and a celebration of Mexican tile. I love this large kitchen island with its double copper sink from Santa Clara de Cobre as well as a state of the art garbage disposal and dishwasher.

Off the kitchen is a cozy breakfast room that would also serve for more intimate dining on cooler lights. Metal and glass French doors lead from this room to the outdoor bar pavilion. Again, the flow in this house is brilliant. I can see utilizing this generous bar surface as a dining buffet or for hors d’oeuves service with a direct path from the kitchen’s stove and refrigerator

I love a ground floor master bedroom. It means that although there are 2 upstairs guest rooms that this home can truly give one level living for a homeowner’s daily life. Back across the courtyard this suite has a garden view and its own small seating terrace. Stepping inside this generous space has its king sized bed nestled in an art niche. While there is able space for a seating area and desk it is the almost 26 feet of closets on 2 walls that will make a new buyer swoon. But to me what is most impressive it that this suite ALSO has TWO Full baths finished in Cantera Marble stone. One has a large walk in shower, the other full bath has a Jacuzzi, shower combo as well as a bidet. WOW

Up a stone and tiled staircase  filled with more artwork we find 2 guest suites each with their own terrace space. The first is over the master with a courtyard garden view. It has its own full bath, a desk or sitting area, walk in closet and room for 2 double beds.

The third bedroom is accessed through a metal double grill gate to a private large second floor open air terrace with a mountain view and a view of the street below. The bedroom has its own full bath, a queen sized bed and a wall of closet storage.
