CAR8771 - Casa Mali
Venustiano Carranza #17A, Chapala, Jalisco, 45920, Ajijic Village
USD $ 349,000

Casa Mali is nestled in a quiet cobblestone street on the gentle hillside of Ajijic village with views of the lake, the village and the mountainside. Ideal for a walkable village lifestyle! (midway between the town’s plaza and its Wednesday Tianguis street market). Renovated this year, it has modern plumbing and electrical but still retains the charm of arches, old brick work, wrought iron, a cupola dome and the perfect balance of indoor and outdoor spaces our climate invites.

This 2 Bedroom 2.5 bath village home offers off-street parking in a roofed carport with an automatic garage door opener. Gentle stairs with black wrought iron railings take you to the home’s entry where there is a small under roof terrace and a lawn area with tropical palms that is ideal if you have a pet.  The original property was remodeled and expanded just this last year by one of my favorite Lakeside general contractors and I LOVE how he kept the brick arches and tile work as he modernized this jewel of a property.

The home has a North – South Orientation and so has a wonderful breeze from the lake. To the left of the entry is a comfortable sized living room with windows to the front lawn and the interior courtyard. The exposed brick wall is a modern touch but the wood ceiling with its beams add character. Straight ahead under a cupola dome with a black metal chandelier is the perfect spot for an intimate dining room. Around the corner is a guest half bath for dinner guests. A glass slider leads to the courtyard. It features an outdoor fireplace / gas grilling area and has a staircase to the second floor. A modern minimalist clear roof allows plenty of light and ventilation but shields this space from rain.

The kitchen is elevated making it easy to visit with dinner guests and this wall of curved mullioned glass looking into the courtyard reminds me of a loft condo. The kitchen has exposed brick, a tiled chimney style range hood, a portal window passthru to the grilling area in the courtyard, a corner skylight and a great mixture of large modern terracotta tiles on the counter and backsplash with smaller artisan tiles that were original to this home’s roots. The kitchen has been staged with a breakfast nook but you could also easily expand the kitchen into this space or add a wall of pantry storage or a combination of all three.

A ground floor master suite flows off the kitchen. It has its own small terrace that lets in natural light and that wonderful breeze. It is large enough for it’s king sized bed and it’s ensuite bath retains the Mexican colorful tiles of the original home but with updated plumbing like this rainhead shower. They even reconfigured the old closet to double the original storage.

The second floor is accessed thru the garden and grill courtyard. It has another bedroom that is the same as its ground floor sister with closet and ensuite bath but WOW look at that view! Most of this floor is sheltered with that same minimalist modern clear roofing with black metal framing giving you a gigantic sheltered terrace with electrical and plumbing and a spectacular lake view. If you need an art or hobby space or want a home gym this is PERFECT!!!

From that second floor terrace a spiral staircase leads up to a roof terrace over the guest room. This is a million dollar view, 360 degrees of unobstructed mountain lake and village!!!! SPECTACULAR!!!!

Casa Mali offers the perfect blend of modern and traditional with taste and style. The location is ideal for a walkable village lifestyle, close to shopping, restaurants and medical center. It offers secure off street roofed parking allowing you to keep a car for excursions beyond the village. It is on an up and coming street that still retains a Mexican authenticity. It has modern plumbing and electrical but still retains the charm of arches, old brick work, wrought iron, a cupola dome and the perfect balance of indoor and outdoor spaces our climate invites. It is a standalone home that has no HOA fees or restrictions. If you are looking for an income rental property you could not find a better option. Short term or long term this property is a dream. It even has all the basic furniture to begin living your new village life including new beds still in plastic. Full house filtration and pressure system, lock and go security and competitively priced at $349,000 USD with the appeal of blank canvas just waiting for a new owner to add their own art and colorful touches. This property is a rare find that will not last long on today’s market. If you sleep on this one you will NOT sleep in it.
