Paseo De Las Brisas #60, La Floresta Ajijic, Chapala, Jalisco
Today’s video takes us to the La Floresta area of East Ajijic with its treelined streets and fabulous homes set back on lush lawns.
La Floresta means “where the flowers are” and thru much of the year the streets are scattered with blue, purple and pink flowers falling from gorgeous blooming trees.
This prestige neighborhood has the distinction of former President of Mexico Gustavo Diaz Ordaz once living here.
Today’s home is walkable to the popular Wednesday tiendas or street market as well as a popular shopping area with a grocery store, pharmacy, gym, movie theater, restaurants, medical services and one of my favorite pastry shops. But what a difference those blocks make. You enter a world upon itself in a peaceful walkable location.
This fabulous home is on a quiet street just a block from the prestigious La Floresta Yacht Club and the lake. It presents a lovely street façade with elegant metal work. I am so excited to show you what is behind that privacy wall!
The Front Gate has a Dutch door portal design that allows a street view that can be closed for Privacy and leads to a forecourt with a small fountain. To the left is a door to the double garage, to the right we enter a front garden with access to the rear garden and straight ahead we enter the home.
The foyer is crowned with a cupola dome and a chandelier and leads directly into the great room with immediate views of the rear garden and lanai.
Past the foyer is a corridor that connects the Kitchen wing to the West with the bedroom wing to the east. Skylights flood this interior space with wonderful light. There is a separate den office alongside the foyer that is a perfect work space or private TV room.
Stepping into the great room one of the first things I notice is the soaring domed ceiling. The room is large enough to accommodate a living and dining space and has 3 French doors that lead to the rear lanai all with the signature metal work that is consistent thru this home.
There is a beautiful gas fireplace flanked with built in bookshelf and storage cabinets. One of the many features I love about this house it the beautiful tile work on the floor.
Just to the left of the great room is the kitchen wing. There is a direct door from the oversized garage to this section of the house. It has a separate laundry room with a service door to the side garden as well as a walk-in pantry. Straight ahead is a horseshoe shaped kitchen with gorgeous tile counter and backsplash. A 6 burner stove with a Mexican style hood, more Mexican tile, a double sink with a side garden view. Next to the French door refrigerator is a wine bar complete with a glass rack. What I truly love though is the views of the rear garden thru the breakfast room.
A side slider from the breakfast room takes you to the garden view lanai. This area spans the back of the house with entrances from the breakfast room, kitchen, great room, master bedroom AND master bath
Both of the home’s bedrooms are located in the sleeping wing. The guest room looks to the front garden. Another of this homes great features is its high cathedral ceilings. This allows a Palladian window in the guest room. The room has a bathroom that can be used ensuite or accessed from the hallway for dinner guests. Lots of space in this room for a sitting area or desk.
The master suite has its own lanai slider but also windows to the private side garden. It boasts 2 walk-in closets with soaring ceilings one with a skylight. Again, the room is large enough for a desk or an additional sitting area. The master has its own ensuite bathroom with twin sinks, a shower AND a soaking tub and a private door to the lanai. I love the flow of this house and how it makes the most of its gardens from every room
The cherry on the cake for this home is the Rooftop Mirador over the two car garage. It is like being in a treehouse.
This stunning and stylish home is competitively priced at $429,000 US Dollars fully furnished, it features solar hot water and solar electrical, a full house pressure system with 3 part filtration including a water softener. It is just waiting for its new owner to begin living this dream life in a quiet corner of Prestigious La Floresta in Ajijic Village.
