Casa Elssy is an architect designed and built (2017) home in one of Ajijic’s most privileged locations, half a block from the much loved malecón and within easy walking distance of Ajijic’s restaurants, galleries and shops.
The street gates (automatic door opener) open to a slate paved two car parking area shaded by a Mexican plum tree. The impressive wrought-iron door opens to the kitchen/dining/living areas, which are separated by high arches, giving the contemporary design a hint of Spanish architecture. The kitchen (with pantry and bar countertop) is fully equipped, including a dishwasher, and boasts granite counter tops and plenty of storage. The living/dining area is anchored on one side by a gas fireplace, and on the other by three arched decorative niches, perfect for displaying books and objects d’art. Sliding doors lead to a delightful patio, surrounded by raised planters, which also serve as extra seating for your guests. The patio also benefits from an outdoor kitchen area with built-in grill and sink, and a weeping wall fountain. From the patio you can reach the rooftop via a spiral staircase, from where you can enjoy views of the lake and mountains.
The elevator off the living area lands directly into the main bedroom suite, super practical after a long night, or if you decide the stairs are just not convenient. The large main bedroom (with minisplit cooling and heating unit) looks over the patio and gardens and trees beyond. Waking up to the first rays of sun and chirping birds will be a daily soothing ritual. A walk-in closet and bathroom complete the suite. On the second floor you will also find a generously sized laundry room with extra storage, a second bedroom with a Romeo-and-Juliet balcony and a second bathroom.
Casa Elssy is fully solar, both for hot water and electric, and benefits from a sophisticated security system and water purification system. A true village gem!
