The location of this exceptionally lovely home has the best of two worlds. Â While historically part of the prestigious Rancho del Oro with itâ€™s rural charm, Casa Jardines today has the convenience of being an easy 10 minute walk or less to great restaurants, Ajijicâ€™s Central Plaza, markets and medical services. Â That said, it still maintains the â€œbehind the wallsâ€ 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.Â 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. Â 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 Â½ bath and separate entrance.Â This part of Casa Jardines could be put to use as a music room, artist retreat or caretakerâ€™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.Â Two en suite separate bathrooms and ample closet space complete the master suite.Â 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 Wrightâ€™s work.Â
Casa Jardines, a lovingly maintained home in park-like gardens awaits you.
