The Premier Real Estate Site for México
“Tres Bambús” is the name of the magnificent property that was the home of Tamara de Lempicka, iconic painter of the 20th century and whose showcase walls were witness to her most emblematic creations. The inspiration of her art is easily felt in this soothing environment.
The previous owner Barbara Hutton commissioned Architect Ignacio Landa to design a Japanese style creation in her preferred town of Cuernavaca with its perfect climate.
Clean, symmetrical lines, spacious areas with a particular geometry in Japanese style ceilings and doors, are what define and differentiate this property. The versatile style full of character complements the splendid garden with mature trees and lush vegetation making this house a particularly cozy refuge.
Our first sight upon entering the commanding lobby is a library wing comprising of a full bathroom, private terrace, and an intimate garden. Our tour continues its course to the double living room and onto the dining room. Both rooms extend out onto spacious terraces with a nice view of the bungalow that can accommodate visitors. In addition, on an upper floor is a separate suite with two living areas, bedroom and a bathroom, offering in total four bedroom suites.
Cuernavaca is recognized as being the home to great celebrities, aristocrats and artists, and boasts we quote “A lifestyle that ranges from the post-modern bohemian to the most elitist sophistication and refinement.”1
In Mexico, Cuernavaca has been and continues to be an enticing place for many investors, with the aforementioned characteristics. The interest in this particular type of property is still predominant, having housed one of the most outstanding, widely recognized painter, whose art will always be appreciated and remain timeless.
