About Chris and Karen
I fell in love with Merida one night while attending the cultural program on Calle 47 at Calle 60 that occurs every Saturday night. Two days later, one of the first homes I saw, bought our casita with three rooms and added another three rooms plus pool. Moved in 4 months later with my 80 year old Mum and husband, in tow, for Christmas.
The architect, Pedro, kept the new addition true to its history: simple and elegant with open space to spread out. Not too much room that one spends all their time keeping up: just the right amount of space.
Garden is quiet, peaceful and private with outside shower. If warm, one can swim at 2 a.m. and go back to sleep soundly, cooled off for hours.
Chris and Karen purchased this house in 2007
Why Chris and Karen chose Merida
I loved the tile floors, the neighborhood has a little mom and pop shop 3 doors down, a tortilla 'factor' 2 doors down, and in the middle of two markets with churches, parks and WIFI. It's friendly and you will get to know Angel and Anjelica at the Jon Keneday Shop, 3 doors down. They sell everything including homemade green salsa, not too hot, just right!
A 16 minute walk to the Zocolo and center of town, Teatro Contrerras for ballet and symphony and shops along the way.
There is so much to see in al Centro, one doesn't need to venture to the outskirts.
Suggestion: Ek Baalam, Chitzen Itza, Yellow City for tours.
What makes this house unique
I didn't know it at the time of purchase, but the casita is perfectly located for walking every where! Two blocks from the English library and free week-end talks and house tours, 3 blocks from the LA 68 Cultural Center with foreign films and great gift shop.
