The Premier Real Estate Site for México
La Casa del Árbol
Arq. Eduardo Terrazas was a genius in his use of space, light and high ceilings in this divine paradise behind walls. Constructed in a classic understated contemporary style, it exudes grandeur as well as warmth. The primary construction is over 40 years old, but it has been remodeled and maintained in its original pristine condition with Santo Tomas and Mexican tile floors, cantera pillars, and carved doors.
One is most impressed with the incredible lush vegetation and the private tropical jungle that surrounds the property with the ever present soothing sound of the river below. A walking path and an apantle are amidst the various fruit trees, elegant palms, and majestic old trees. The open terraces and two heated pools add to the enjoyment of the outdoors.
Upon entering the inviting foyer, to the right is the grand Living Room with a cantera fireplace, air conditioning, various sitting areas with views from the French windows to the terrace and garden. To the left there are a study, guest bathroom, two wonderful guest bedrooms with marble bathrooms and the very large Master Suite complete with two marble baths, two walk in closets, massage room, sauna and its own sitting room with chimney. Also on this main level are a spacious indoor dining room with fireplace and picture windows, adjacent to an outdoor dining terrace and an ample colonial tiled kitchen with a large pantry and laundry area. The comfortable wrap around terrace with incredible views is ideal for relaxing and enjoying the magical garden.
On a lower level off the garden are three additional private bedrooms with baths. The Staff bungalow has two bedrooms, a bath and kitchen and there is a 5 car garage with additional space for 15 cars.
Perfect for a boutique hotel, one needs to visit this magnificent garden estate situated close to the historic center to truly appreciate its remarkable features.
