Historic colonial estate for sale is an outstanding property located in a beautiful colonial village in the Yucatan.
The current owners found the property in 2007 in a state of ruin. Under their careful supervision the property has been restored to a level that far exceeds all its former glory, it has been turned into a peaceful and sought-after oasis by creating a property that mixes contemporary styling with its colonial heritage. Every room of the property has been fashioned in its own unique style. This colonial property is currently being run as a boutique hotel, which creates the opportunity for the buyer to continue as an investment property or keep this as their own private historical hacienda.
This beautiful colonial hotel for sale has 10 bedrooms, each with its own private ensuite bathroom. This gorgeous estate includes 3 buildings laid out around a beautiful swimming pool. Lush trees and vegetation surround the pool. An old chapel has been refashioned into a restaurant, a smaller dining room, a large bar/reception area, a spacious lounge room, with large kitchen.
The three main buildings are on a 500 meter wide by 650 meter deep (approximately , since the ground is not square) and consist of approximately 1,174 m2 of construction (12,636 square feet). On top of this there is an old machine room that has yet to be restored which consists of approximately 800 m2 of construction (8,611 square feet). This machine room could easily be converted into another 8-10 rooms, turned into another large private residence, or whatever else the future owner can dream up !
This can be an investment opportunity to be run as a design chic boutique hotel or as a private Luxury Mexican Villa for sale.
