Now offered at a new price! Hacienda San Antonio Chuntuac is a rare find; a beautifully restored, elegant and sophisticated hacienda located only 8km south of Merida’s “periferico” highway. Surrounded by lush exotic gardens, the current owner lovingly restored the old buildings preserving the colonial design of the original structure. To bring the hacienda truly to modern standards, some contemporary spaces have been added which combine beautifully with the original colonial architecture and create an indoor-outdoor heart around which the living areas connect in sophisticated balance of old and new. A reverence for the past is combined with the luxury and comfort of modern conveniences. Hacienda San Antonio Chuntuac has been transformed into a structural paradise in the midst of nature.
Moorish style arches and high wooden columns which surround the main entrance to the hacienda. The woodwork has all been restored, saving the original design. The main house or Casa Principal is a one story building with stunning corridors that connect all the rooms and is designed to be wheelchair accessible. Intricate ironwork protects the large windows on the exterior and inside, the hand crafted wooden shutters are made in the same style as the original colonial carved wooden doors. These handsome windows also flood the house with light and fresh air. Spectacular garden views from every room of the house promote a positive, harmonious energy, and the interior décor transports the visitor to another era, where peace and tranquility combine with fine-carved antique furniture and art. Almost all of the fine furnishings, only excluding a few family pieces, are included in the sale.
Hacienda San Antonio Chuntuac also provides an extraordinary setting for very special social events. The outside recreational areas of the hacienda include; a one of a kind rodeo ring for chareadas, two large swimming pools (one deep and one shallower), large terraces, and a private chapel.
Hacienda San Antonio Chuntuac was built in 1780, serving as a cattle ranch for more than two centuries. At the end of the 19th century, like most haciendas in the Yucatan Peninsula, Hacienda Chuntuac’s main activity was henequen production, which continued until 1950.
