About Yesenia Lope
I'm originally from New York. 8 years ago I bought a house on the beach here in the Yucatan and each time I came down to visit, I fell more and more in love with the city, specifically Centro. So, I decided to buy a home in Centro. I would travel back and forth NY to Merida all the time wishing I were back here. So, I decided to move here full time. 4 years ago I opened a gallery, also in Centro (SoHo Galleries) on calle 60 bet. 43 and 41 and am enjoying meeting artists from all over Mexico and Latin America. Life here is calmer, slower and the local culture is a joy. You'll see when you come and visit.
Yesenia Lope purchased this house in 2007
Why Yesenia Lope chose Merida
When I saw this property, I knew immediately this is it!!! Although it needed lots of work, the center courtyard and the garden spaces is what attracted me most. I love the location, near everything right downtown!
Mejorada church and park are 1/2 block away, the zocalo is 4 blocks away and main market is only 2 block from the house.
On the weekends they close off the streets on the main square. I walk down, have breakfast, watch the local dancing, shop crafts and just take it all in! Then walk back, take a swim and a nice nap!
What makes this house unique
When I was looking for my dream home, I really wanted it near local culture but also wanted convenience of parking. The house is so close to everything including ballet, theater, the symphony, museums and it has a garage.. That is very unusual for downtown.
The inner courtyard with the gardens and fountain is where I spend my mornings reading and drinking coffee. All rooms overlook private garden spaces .. including the master bathroom.
The city is finishing up a whole renewal program in Centro so all the streets are and buildings are being renovated.. It is a peaceful retreat in the middle of everything!
