This home is full of charm and character! This beautifully restored, two story adobe home with traditional Mexican artisanal touches such as talavera tile and custom brick work, sits on a very large lot, and is ideally located steps from the historic Loreto plaza and just one block from the Sea of Cortes!
It is not often a property as special as this one comes onto the market! It has a long history, and was originally utilized as the office building for the salt mine that was once located on Carmen Island and it is in the best location in Loreto to enjoy a stroll to one of the many fabulous restaurants in the evenings.
Walk through the gate from the street into a private oasis, and make your way up the few steps to the covered front porch complete with a sitting area.
Enter the first floor of the home into a brick lined hallway that leads to all the rooms on this floor. The living room, dining room and kitchen on the North side (all three of these rooms are connected by lovely open arch ways), and a bedroom and a full bath on the South side.
Also, from the back door at the end of the hallway, enter onto a large covered patio, perfect for entertaining and eating al fresco while gazing on the majestic ficus tree located in the center of the large backyard.
From the front covered patio, ascend the enclosed staircase to the second floor, where you will find three bedrooms, and two full bathrooms and a beautiful terrace that overlooks the backyard. Enter the bedroom on the NorthEast side of the house and find yourself in a light filled space that could be used as an office that connects to the bedroom through a beautiful archway.
Across the hall from this room, discover the covered terrace, a delightful and peaceful space, overlooking the private backyard.
There is a full bathroom with artisan talavera tile sink and shower, located off the hallway. At the West end of the upstairs, you will find two more bedrooms and a full bathroom with talavera tile sink and shower. One of these rooms is currently being utilized as a living room/den.
The traditional Mexican architecture and history of this home, coupled with the fabulous location, not only makes this make a wonderful family home, it would also make a great small hotel, or inn, or even a language school. There is also room to expand, by adding more casitas and a pool if desired.
This home was completely restored in 2009 and has been meticulously maintained by the current owners. The home has been recently painted inside and out, and new mini split combos a/c/heaters installed in each room. The landscaped yard has a watering drip system in place for ease of maintenance. The property has a tall concrete wall on all four sides, and a driveway and a garage with a car sized backdoor that opens for ease of access to the back of the property, or a pull through for a boat.
Don’t miss this opportunity to own this gorgeous property in the perfect location in Loreto!
