Description

”The Magic of Ajijic’s Most Historically Significant Residence One Block From the Central Plaza”

Have you ever dreamt of owning a former convent? Of a home situated right in the middle of Ajijic? Of living a life surrounded by expansive lush gardens? Of lounging by your pool in complete privacy? Of being part of history? Casa los Suenos, parts of which were built and inhabited by Franciscan monks in 1535, will make your dreams come true!

Unassuming doors open to the hacienda-style home (in private hands since the 1920’s), and you are instantly transported into another world, calm, cool and glorious: Thick stucco-plastered walls, high wood beamed ceilings, terra cotta tiled floors, rooms fronted by arched colonnades arranged around a central courtyard with a four-tiered gurgling fountain. The first room to your right – once a receiving room for casual visitors – is used as a cozy library (with fireplace). A delicate wrought-iron gate opens to the covered terrace that wraps around the central patio; this will very likely be your main outdoor living space; off this arcade are the formal living and dining rooms, each with fireplace. Continue straight, and you arrive in the wonderful kitchen, colorful, fully equipped, with a very large pantry, and an integrated family room, also with fireplace. This space connects to yet another terrace overlooking the garden, and gives access to the separate laundry room. The main bedroom suite is grand indeed: extra-high boveda ceilings, a fireplace, air-conditioning, a four-piece main bathroom featuring traditional tiling, a walk-in shower and bathtub. The walk-in closet connects to a second two-piece bathroom. North and South-facing terraces are designed to provide cooling breezes.
Crossing the exquisitely designed planted courtyard will lead you to two additional bedrooms, and two bathrooms (one en-suite), and two bonus rooms. Possible offices or art studios? Or bedrooms for visiting grandchildren?

The pool house with gourmet kitchen and dining area provides an informal alfresco gathering spot for family and friends, and creates a sense of relaxation and connection to the beautiful surrounding environment with views over the solar-heated swimming pool and hot tub. Your views are drawn beyond: to the oldest mango tree in the area, still producing fruit, and encircled by a brick patio of very generous dimensions; shade and sun gardens; arches covered by flowering vines; various fruit trees such as fig, guava, lime and papaya.

Tucked away in the North-East corner of the garden and behind a wooden gate is an air-conditioned casita with bedroom, sitting room, kitchenette, bathroom, fireplace, and its own small garden.

Casa los Suenos is fully solar for electricity and hot water, and offers two covered parking spaces.

Please call me or your favourite agent to arrange for a showing. 24-hour notice required.
