Presenting a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make an historic home on the shores of Lake Chapala your own.  This property, consisting of the original home built in 1880 (renovated by current American owners in 1998), two casitas (each with kitchen, bathroom, sitting room and bedroom), covered terraces and a Moroccan 'follie', amidst romantic gardens and several fountains, is awaiting your vision and business acumen.

One of the first houses to be built on the Chapala Malecón, many of its original features have been lovingly conserved:  tall stained glass windows, the musicians' balcony in the main reception room (repurposed as a cozy library), cupolas, soaring wood-beamed ceilings, wood windows with shutters, a massive kitchen with its original sink, just to mention a few.  The glorious views over Lake Chapala from the second and third floor rooms and terraces are impossible to top.

Two completely separate casitas - one with its own street entrance, one level; the other behind its own gate, two levels - could provide instant income.  There are several large bodegas (storage rooms) that could be turned into additional casitas/bedrooms, as could the Moroccan 'follie'.  The property has a street entrance, and an entrance directly from Chapala's famous malecón, perfect for evening strolls.

When you visit this property, please bring time and an open mind, there is a lot to take in, a lot to dream!  Plus, I will tell you all about Elizabeth Taylor's romantic stay on the shores of Lake Chapala.
