We proudly present this sunny, bright, unique estate built in 1880 (XIX Century), one of the first Lakefront homes built on what is now Chapala's West Malecon fronting the Beach. Originally belonging to the Victor Gonzalez Luna family from Guadalajara for decades, it was sold to the present American owners in 1998. The Henderson’s completely renovated the property with new plumbing & wiring, adding a Library Loft, & later adding the "Keeping Room" with dining & sitting areas & gas fired/wood burning, brick fireplace. They have kept the original charm & much of the classic “flavor" adding fireplaces & many improvements and additions like the Moroccan Kasbah hidden in the lovely gardens amidst several beautiful fountains. The main 3 storey home has 2 entrances: one from the new Malecon and the other from "Chapala’s Prettiest Little Street” entering a long driveway with covered parking spaces. There are (2) separate, self-contained (completely furnished for ready occupancy) 1-bedroom casitas, each with living room, full kitchen & bathroom, and private entry courtyards, easily rentable for extra income. This beautiful property, one block from Chapala’s Historic center, has great potential to develop a business, such as a Gourmet Restaurant, Boutique Inn or Yoga Retreat. The place is full of charm with endless possibilities, featuring stained and etched glass windows & over door transoms, tall wood beamed ceilings, hand painted frescoes by a famous local artist & talavera tiles. Throughout the property there are 8 wood burning fireplaces, 8 bathrooms, lovely mature gardens, terraces, porches, a pergola with brick, BBQ fireplace, more. The kitchen features traditional hand painted tiles, granite, generous enclosed pantry and 2 butler’s pantries with sinks for cleanup. There are four storage rooms that could easily be turned into additional bedrooms or casitas.
