You’ll fall in love with Upper La Floresta. All the conveniences of being within walking distance of everything Ajijic Central has to offer. But quiet. The Best of Both worlds.
When you go through the entrance gate off the Carreterra, you’ll immediately notice the lack of traffic in this neighborhood which is famous for its extra wide streets, sidewalks and lushly landscaped round-a-bouts.
You’ll feel safe knowing the Neighborhood Association provides security with its own police trucks which patrol 24/7.
“La Bella” is loaded with interior charm provided by boveda (brick, arched ceilings), two tiled fireplaces, two skylights, wall sconces throughout, carved wooden doors inside and out.
These special details, to name but a few, give this house character and make ‘La Bella” stand out from all the rest.
“La Bella” has all the curb appeal you love in traditional Mexican homes with romantic details such as the wrought iron balcony that connects the two upstairs bedrooms. Big enough for bistro table, the balcony is the perfect place to enjoy your favorite beverage while enjoying the scenery. Look up to enjoy the mountain view. Look down for the view of the lovely courtyard and pool.
“La Bella” has been updated within the last 3 years for modern functionality provided by amenities such as water purification system. You will also appreciate having air conditioning in the king-size master bedroom.
In addition to offering charm, the balcony and adjoining hallway separates, the two bedrooms and their en suite baths ensuring upstairs privacy. Both bedrooms have large walk-in closets.
“La Bella” sits within a magical private setting which is connected to the rest of the world by a honeysuckle-lined path.
The three-car garage one sees from the street was designed to be a part of the wall which totally surrounds the property upon which “La Bella” sits with two other similarly lovely homes.
The bougainvillea-lined interior courtyard, created by the outer wall, is the perfect setting for the 40 foot bean-shaped pool long enough for swimming laps.
Sliding glass doors to and from the courtyard allow easy indoor-outdoor living, especially entertaining. The entire downstairs is one “open” area flowing from the Courtyard/Living room (which has a gas fireplace) through the center hall, into the dining area and kitchen (with marble counter tops).
One of the special highlights of the downstairs open living area is the Terrarium, a plant-filled outdoor pocket garden easily accessible thru the sliding glass door which separates it from the dining area. A very intimate space. But big enough for a bistro table. Perfect for your morning cup of coffee.
Off the kitchen, at the back of the house, there is a large covered bonus space, currently used as a cabana servicing the pool. The cabana, which has its own floor drain, is perfect for changing in and out of swimsuits. There’s room for several drying racks. There is a direct private walkway from the cabana to the pool. There’s more: Along the way to the pool, there is a hot water shower.
Bonus room could be easily converted into an office. Current Owner has plans developed for converting the Bonus room into a first-floor master bedroom with en suite bath.
Casa La Bella won’t last long. Don’t wait. This is the house you have been dreaming of.
