4 BDRMS, 3.5 BATHS , UNFURNISHED , 1.5 LEVEL IN LA HUERTA, AJIJIC
A Stylish Home in a Quiet Peaceful Corner of Ajijic. Located on the Western Edge of Ajijic Village you are close to the Popular Organic Market, an Authentic French Bakery, a Neighborhood Supermarket and Seafood Store, Numerous Wonderful Restaurants, as well as a Microbrewery Pub.
La Huerta, The Orchard, is a secure gated community of 35 homes that takes its name from the many fruit trees that were planted through out the development when it was built. It is a tranquil alternative to the sometimes-noisy village of Ajijic with immaculate tree lined streets and level smooth interlocking pavers. It is located on the western edge of the village about a block and a half from the lake. An easy 20-minute walk on level ground takes you to the village plaza, Malecon and the Lake Chapala Society. The convenience of Village life without the congestion and noise.
Located on a large lot at the end of the upper street’s cul de sac. This prestige house has 3 bedrooms as well as an independent 1 bedroom casita in a development with typically 2 bedrooms homes.
Enter past the mermaid fountain and one of the homes many murals. An unusual oval foyer with art niches is crowned by a cupola dome. An archway to the left leads to the bedroom wing while the right takes you into the oversized office / den / extra guest room measuring 16 x 14 feet. Twin south facing windows as well as a stained-glass east window, art niches, built in cabinetry, a large closet and a dual heat and air minisplit might make this one of your favorite rooms.
Straight forward from the foyer you enter the homes Twin Dining and Living Rooms measuring more than 720 sq feet. It features a domed ceiling with cupola, a gas fireplace, more art niches and a commanding view of the back garden as well as another dual heat and cooling minisplit.
To the right we enter the kitchen. I love the flow thru this kitchen with entrances from both the dining AND living room spaces. It features two bay windows and views of the back and side garden. Custom parotta wood cabinetry, granite countertops, a skylight, pantry and breakfast bar. This kitchen ticks every box while still keeping you close to guests in your living and dining room. A full laundry room with lots of storage, cabinetry and another skylight complete this area.
To the left of the entry foyer is a light filled hallway with skylight and linen closet. The full guest bath has 1920s glamor, custom cabinetry and a large walk-in shower. It has an entrance from the hallway for dinner guests but also the adjourning guest room allowing it to also be an ensuite guestroom bath. The guest room is large enough for its king-sized bed with south facing windows with views of another art mural.
The master suite has an artisan brick dome, a bay window with views of the garden and an additional door leading directly to the back garden thru the dining room. Wonderful flow thru this space. The ensuite bath has a skylight over the vanity, a walk in closet and a jacuzzi tub and shower combo with a waterfall soaking feature. WOW! Oh and the bedroom has yet another dual heat and air minisplit. BEST of all this home has solar electric to allow total comfort in running heating and cooling on the occasional cool mornings or warm days.
At the rear of the carport is an art studio and storage bodega. 10 by 14 foot is a nice generous space for all your art projects or a home office. Under the casita stairs there is even a half bath to service the studio space or gardener / Staff use.
The second-floor casita is light filled with north and south windows to catch the lake breeze, has its own ensuite full bath and generous private terrace.
The gorgeous mature landscaping is lovely but the back garden just takes my breath away. It reminds me a spa resort. This quiet private space features a two level flagstone terrace and a 10 foot waterfall. But most impressive is the 18-foot-high mural. It just feels like you’ve entered a magical oasis.
Stylish homes like this offering a quiet village lifestyle are rare.
