This phenomenal home, awaits the right buyer who also dreams of architectural design and style and combining sophistication with playfulness. Bellissima-The House of Beauty has it all. Just the street appeal for a Village home is awesome, and also very unusual. Immediately your eyes are greeted with black obsidian stones surrounding the gorgeous palms that shield the house from the passersby. With the front door set back from this extra wide frontage, you already have a sense of the majesty that awaits you when you have your first look behind the burgundy red front door.
This is such a truly remarkable home, you will take hours to tour it, should this be to your liking and in your budget. Most definitely look at everything. Especially the art, because the owner felt, almost every piece was purchased specifically for this home, so 90% of it should remain. Therefore, this is beyond a turn key home, it includes almost everything your eyes will see.
Each room has a distinct personality that reflects the owners Italian and British heritage. There is nothing that has not been meticulously thought-out and incorporated to enhance your day to day living experience. Each room has eye catching focal points. Even the entrance hall from the street has a 13th century, hand cut stone mosaic that’s subtlety imbedded into the tile work. It might be hard to look down, as for sure you will be greeted by soaring 13 and half foot ceilings with curved European coping that distinguish it from 99% of the homes in Ajijic. Once you’ve taken in this expansive feeling, you cannot help be taken back by the floor-to-ceiling fireplace mantel and then to the five extraordinary, handcrafted, tall, iron, arched doors with beveled glass, surrounded by exposed brick to offset the Venetian plaster style of wall finish throughout most of this remarkable home.
These exquisite doors open onto the brand-new pool, re-done at the end of 2023 to have a lounging ledge and comes with the official ledge loungers, table and three Sunbrella custom umbrellas for your pleasure. The stunning bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, and TV area lead you from the main level toward the beautiful new kidney shaped pool and the ‘four years in the making’ Mermaid Mosaic pool surround; the hydro spa, the fire pit, the eye popping 25´ high wall mural wall, the floating plates painted to represent a sunrise or sunset and also to the patio with one of the seven fireplaces and a fully equipped second outdoor kitchen and eating area.
Follow the covered walkway to the Casita with a private rear street entrance (this home runs from 16th de Septiembre to Privada Francisco I Madero, where the parking garage is located), and you will find a divine separate Casita with both a covered patio in the front facing the pool and a Romeo and Juliet covered terrace at the rear, overlooking the Privada with lake views. This Casita is the perfect get away, as it offers complete privacy and features a compact, but fully functional kitchen and huge bathroom with two shower heads and two sinks.
Located outside one of the five tall, iron doors leading to the pool, is the 5-to-6-person floating glass elevator, called “Almost Famous” that can take you and your guests to both levels two and three, the Penthouse. Of course, there are amazing stairs lined with exceptional art that also can take you to levels two and three. The choice is yours.
The enormous second floor principal bedroom that runs the full length of the house features both North and South facing terraces. The entire rear of the second level has just had a fantastic fully screened-in upgrade added, so your entertaining and living areas are even more sensational. The en-suite bathroom is extremely large, featuring separately located sinks and sit-down vanities, as well as a large walk-in shower and separate Jacuzzi tub. The closet will knock your socks off. Large and beautifully laid out with many built-in drawers and cubicles.
The features of this second level principal bedroom are far too many to mention. You will have a hard time deciding which bedroom to make your principal habitat! Finishing out the second level is a spacious office with sitting/library area, full bathroom, and a laundry room as well as the sweeping staircase taking you up to the Penthouse.
Then the world spins from Italy and contemporary England to high stylish New York “feel” Penthouse as you walk up the sweeping staircase to this amazing Penthouse, which has been totally re-done for your pleasure. It was the owners private, principal living space. It has it all, including stunning views of the lake and mountains from North, South, East, and West. Besides a bedroom, bathroom, fireplace, two TVs, two A/C units, living room, gathering room, and kitchen, you also have four terraces all with indescribable views.
In a nutshell, five bedrooms, six and half bathrooms, four kitchens, eight flat screen TVs, five A/C splits, five Eco-Smart instant 24-7 hot water heaters, each dedicated to an area of the house, plus two additional solar water systems, a 16 panels (plus or minus) solar pool system, a flex room now used as an office, a separate Casita with two terraces and fountain, seven fireplaces, a gourmet kitchen with huge walk in pantry, all fully and completely furnished with exquisite furniture and art and decoration, a large solar heated swimming pool, several outdoor private lounging and reading areas, and there is no ugly garage door facing the front of your beautiful front facade (garage is located off the rear entrance on the Privada) – and there’s more; a hydro spa, fire-pit, and several BBQ’S - all included.
Please, if this is a home you “feel” and a home in your budget, call me or your favorite agent in town to make an appointment. Usually, one days’ notice is needed for a private showing.
