Located in the community of El Parque, this popular gated community is just East of Ajijic in the village of San Antonio and is widely regarded as one of the top 5 communities lakeside. El Parque is a friendly social community clustered around a club house with an expansive terrace with BBQ grills, oversized pool and heated jacuzzi. Homes in El Parque come on the market rarely and sell quickly due to its prime walkable location and outstanding amenities.
The Carport has a tiled roof and a stone privacy wall that is crowned with a stunning yellow flowering vine. To the right a private artisan arched metal gate in a stone wall leads to a large screened living and dining porch. If this was my home I think I would spend most of my time right here. It looks out to a spacious garden with a planted lion head wall fountain. A low stone wall to the south offers privacy and I love the 3 majestic Italian Cypress trees that are interspersed with tropical palms. There is even a small potting shed for you or your gardener. The attractive lawn has a perfect sized flagstone terrace for outdoor seating or a BBQ grill depending on your preference
Two glass sliding doors connect the screened porch with the inside living room. The space is comfortably cozy with seating around a gas fireplace that is crowned with a flat screened tv and flanked with lit art shelves. An archway to the north leads to the dining room with its leaded glass arched window and wall sconces. To the west a kitchen peninsula allows you to visit with your favorite chef. This open concept living allows easy living and entertaining that feature garden views and flows out to the screened porch. The perfect blending of indoor and outdoor living our near perfect climate invites.
The kitchen is an efficient U shape with platinum blond custom cabinets and granite countertops. It has a south facing window and a pocket door to the north that leads to a pantry laundry area with another door directly to the carport ideal for off-loading groceries.
The ground floor master is to the east of the living room. It has its own entrance and windows to the south garden and is large enough for a king sized bed and a sitting or desk area. There is a large walk in closet with built in cabinet storage and a generous bath with a walk in shower.
North of the living room is a bright stairwell with Mexican tiled risers and two soaring leaded glass windows that flood the space with natural light. The homes second floor offers a private full bath that includes a linen closet and a spacious guest bedroom with a built in desk with wall shelving. The bedroom is L shaped with a sitting area and an entrance to its own lake view terrace. This large terrace space overlooks the lower garden but also has a lake view framed by those palm and cypress trees. Off this terrace is a studio craft room perfect for any hobby you might enjoy. For myself I am thinking art supplies and an easel with a blank canvas ready to immortalize this beautiful view. A door on this terrace leads to a staircase that leads up to a roof top Mirador with a 360 view of the majestic mountains and peaceful Lake.
Casa Hutchinson exists as its own little island. It is only steps away from the club house with its gym, pool, terraces, event room, grill area and jacuzzi but you never hear a sound here. Your garden is buffered away from neighbors offering privacy. The home is tastefully furnished and zoned with an entire second floor for guests and a spacious ground floor suite for the home owner. You have 3 separate outdoor spaces for living, entertaining and relaxing. A cozy fireplace living room that is a dream for cooler evenings. An intimate and elegant dining area that naturally flows from both the kitchen and living room.
The home offers full home filtration including UV and solar hot water. Fully furnished it is the perfect turnkey home lakeside or as an ideal rental investment property.
Casa Hutchinson offers a truly walkable lifestyle. The clubhouse with its bar, kitchen and grilling terrace are perfect for private or community entertaining. You could even live here without a car since everything you need from restaurants, to shopping, to a fantastic meat market, a north of the border style supermarket AND one of the best stocked liquor and wine stores all with 3 blocks. Consider an e- bike with the paved bike path the connects you to adjacent Ajijic and nearby Chapala and San Juan Cosala.
