The architectural design features of this home include traditional materials -adobe, wood pillars and beams, red tile (teja) roofs, stone work (cantera) and woven overlapping strips of pine ceilings (tejamanil)- a distinct and elegant characteristic of classical Mexican architecture.
The 2,152 sq. feet two level home sits on a 1,614 sq. ft. lot which fronts a typical Patzcuaro cobblestone street. A covered carport provides parking for one car. In addition you will have a first floor garden and a roof-top terrace for convenient and pleasant outdoor living.
The first floor features a great room (living room/dining room/kitchen) and a bedroom suite (or office) with closet and bathroom. The kitchen features a cooking-center island, and the opportunity for lots of personally chosen traditional Talavera tile.
The second floor features a master bedroom suite with balcony, walk-in closet, and bathroom with Jacuzzi tub; a second bedroom suite with balcony, walk-in closet and shower; and convenient full-size laundry with washer and dryer hook-ups. The stairway -from the first floor to the roof- features colorful Taleva tile risers (chosen by you if you'd like).
Not only will this Colonial home feature traditional materials, traditional styles and excellent worksmanship, but, unlike many new homes built in this part of Mexico, the construction of this home is being supervised by an American engineer allowing for important safety features of US-style electrical work: ample grounded/polarized outlets, appropriate amperage, and personalized phone and computer hook-ups. Plumbing will be supervised as well to assure drainage and adequate water pressure through-out. Because there are no building codes or government inspections, the added benefit of supervisory engineering assures both safety and convenience. After construction, décor assistance will be provided so that you can easily select light-fixtures, window-coverings, and even furniture and carpets to complete your elegant home.
The property itself is in a great location - 4 blocks from the main plaza, 3 blocks from the bus station, close to a colorful market, and best of all - 2 blocks from the main road which circles the city.
