Casa de los Padres is a piece of living history. This charming, fully renovated 2 bed, 2.5 bath home was originally part of the oldest residence in Ajijic – a monastery built in 1535 by Franciscan padres. The monks who resided in this home were associated with the church in the Ajijic central square. Walk to everywhere in the village from this premiere location – one block to the plaza and 3 blocks to the lake.
Both floors are flooded with light from the eight floor-to-ceiling iron and glass windows that look out onto an exotic garden and patio, providing a sense of indoor-outdoor living.
The first floor features an open concept living, dining and kitchen space (including dishwasher and microwave), with French doors opening onto a vine covered patio. The space also includes a separate office area and half bath. There are staircases on each side of the home, headed to two bedrooms, each with ensuite baths. The master bedroom suite features a washer and dryer, and French doors opening to a spacious balcony with mountain views.
The home features off street parking for one car, numerous antique wrought iron light fixtures, as well as purified and pressurized water, among many other modern amenities
