Brisas Poniente #8, Fraccionamiento Brisas de Chapala, Chapala, Jalisco – USD $359,000


Casa Kellaway is nestled in the hills above Chapala. In the gated community of Brisas de Chapala you can enjoy the quiet of country living while still being close to the vibrant Communities of Ajijjic and Chapala; you are only 10 minutes from Ajijic and 5 minutes from the larger bustling county seat of Chapala.

This bright modern home has a quiet peace to it that is rare to find. Just being here I find myself breathing deeply and calmly. It is close to village life in Ajijic or Chapala but buffered away. The lake and mountain views are truly stunning. This home has a ten panel solar electric system, solar hot water as well as an on demand Gas heater for cloudy days AND it is being sold fully furnished including art work. WOW. Competitively priced at $359,000 USD furnished this listing will NOT be available for long!

One of the first things you notice about this home is it is not masked by a front wall. That speaks to the 24/7 security enjoyed by this development in it’s peaceful country setting. Brisas de Chapala is named for the gentle breezes you feel here. Casa Kellaway is situated on the top street in the development and has wonderful views of Lake Chapala and the surrounding Sierra Madre mountains.

Passing through the grilled garden gate it is a gentle walk past blooming roses to the front door. To the left is the driveway with its automatic street gate that leads to the 2 car carport.

The leaded glass panels of the large front door let light into the entry foyer. To the right is a guest powder room and as we step forward past the staircase the house opens into an open concept kitchen dining and living room with a garden terrace beyond.

The kitchen features dark wood cabinets, open shelving and granite countertop. It is light and bright with windows to the front garden and the lake. Top of the line appliances and light fixtures give this home a sophisticated vibe. The wood topped peninsula island has a built in wine rack and deep pull out drawers perfect for serving cocktails to guests. There is a side alcove laundry and pantry area with top of the line Washer and Dryer and a side garden door.

The Dining room has this amazing cluster of Mexican contemporary lantern lights and a round glass table on a stone base. Bright upholstered dining chairs that harmonize with the living room seating. The fireplace has a gas log set perfect for cooler evenings. High ceilings plenty of windows and the neutral floor tiles just make this home feel happy and bright.

The downstairs master has a generous wardrobe wall of closets and drawers that run almost to the ceiling for extra seasonal storage. The off white shaker style gives a bright and modern feeling and the bedroom has windows to the rear garden as well as a spacious ensuite bath.

The staircase to the second floor is extra wide and has character with its wrought iron railings and cupola dome at the top but what I truly love is this destination window with its commanding lake view.

There are 2 more ensuite bedrooms on this floor each with its own huge terrace.

The garden view bedroom has a soaring peaked bovida brick ceiling, a walk in closet, its own bathroom and a wall of glass looking to the rear garden and the Siera Madre mountains. This Huge terrace has classic style with its urn style balustrade and runs the entirety of the back of the house. Plenty of space for sunbathing and relaxing as well as shade from the classic black and white retractable awning.

The front bedroom is slightly smaller and has custom-built plantation style bed and side tables that remind me of time in the Bahamas. Your view from this room is lake Chapala with a wall of glass and a magnificent terrace space. The stylish black and white awning roof gives comfortable shade that is repeated in the seat cushions and this round rattan resort lounger is definitely calling my name. I love that this prime outdoor space is also accessible from the second floor foyer and not just this bedroom.

There is a prefab garden shed and the walls and fenced gates allow pets free range in the rear of the property. If you are environmentally aware you will love the raised planting beds in the garden designed for fresh vegetables and the grey and rain water collection and irrigation system the owners have in place. There is even a rear garden gate that leads to the hillside beyond. Perfect for disposing of lawn and garden cuttings. The current owners tell me that a neighbor’s cattle herd love to stop by just outside that wall for an all you can eat buffet. GOD I love Mexico!
