Casa Mariposa 2 West Ajijic
Beautiful Casa Mariposa in quiet, peaceful, secure Rancho del Oro at the foot of the Sierra de San Juan Cosala mountains offers stunning views of Lake Chapala and Mount Garcia. A leisurely 20-minute walk brings you to the heart of the village and the malecon, while neighborhood restaurants, shops, and the organic market are just around the corner. Walk in to this spacious, open format, fully-furnished, single-level, two-bedroom, two-bath home highlighted by a tranquil Mexican-style hacienda courtyard. Natural light fills this entire home. Sit in the sunny courtyard or under the covered terrace to enjoy the waterfall fountain, the full wall mural, and the array of exquisite plants. The perfectly situated house receives natural breezes throughout the day, and ceiling fans in every room provide additional comfort. The home is tastefully furnished with hand-crafted parota wood and copper Mexican furniture. A masterful boveda ceiling encompasses the dining room and living room. The restful living room includes an elegant agate and marble gas fireplace. The well-appointed, modern kitchen has stainless steel appliances, granite countertops with lots of cooking space, and beautiful hand-made wood and glass cabinetry. Opposite the kitchen is a private office with built-in shelving and rosewood desk. The large master bedroom that opens to the courtyard includes a walk-in closet, plenty of storage, and a bathroom with shower and jetted soaking tub. The cozy guest bedroom with ensuite bath also opens to the courtyard and looks across to the scenic mural. Everything is provided - linens, towels, make-up mirror, and hair dryer. From the courtyard, you take the outdoor stairs to the Mirador oasis with its exceptional view of Lake Chapala and Mount Garcia. Under covered rooftop, sit in comfortable chairs in front of the copper table as you enjoy your coffee at sunrise and margaritas at sunset, surrounded by local plants, large artistic mask and mural, and incredible six-foot diameter fountain.
