Elegant home surrounded by enchanting garden paradise.The location of this exceptionally lovely home has the best of two worlds. While historically part of the prestigious Rancho del Oro with it’s rural charm, Casa Jardines today has the convenience of being an easy 10 minute walk or less to great restaurants, Ajijic’s Central Plaza, markets and medical services. That said, it still maintains the “behind the walls” elegance of its roots in Rancho del Oro...Casa Jardines is situated in the midst of extensive mature gardens, where fruits trees (lime, orange, lima, pomegranate, mango, avocado, to mention only a few) provide dappled shade and an endless supply of exotic and delicious fruit, an extensive rose garden offers visual delight, and a separate herb garden for your culinary adventures...Casa Jardines offers ample inside and outside spaces, including a very large screened veranda overlooking a koi pond with a gurgling fountain off the living and dining areas, making it perfect for lavish or intimate entertaining. The living room features 12 foot high ceilings, tasteful crown molding, a cantera gas fireplace, an intimate dining space and a gorgeous stained glass window. Its adjacent full bathroom suggests an additional option of using the area as another master suite. A formal dining room flows to the large and sunny kitchen (GE Profile appliances), which offers lots and lots of storage and a breakfast nook...A few steps lead to the oversized laundry room (which happens to have lovely views of - and entry to - the herb garden), and to the utility room with ½ bath and separate entrance. This part of Casa Jardines could be put to use as a music room, artist retreat or caretaker’s apartment...The generously sized second floor landing allows it to be used as a private space for watching television. Off the landing you flow into the oversized and romantic master bedroom with eastern and southern exposure, with French doors leading to a Romeo-and-Juliet balcony providing glorious views of your garden paradise. Two en suite separate bathrooms and ample closet space complete the master suite. Two additional bedrooms and a shared bathroom, ideal to welcome visiting friends and family, complete the second floor..Unusually high quality construction and architectural design evoke Frank Lloyd Wright’s work. ..Casa Jardines, a lovingly maintained home in park-like gardens awaits you.
