The house was another L-shaped construction with high ceilings from the front rooms all the way through to the back. It sat on a large lot, and it had every one of its original doors and original pasta tiles in each room.
It had beautiful art deco details everywhere and you could easily imagine life breathed back into this dirty rough diamond.
The facade was an imposing art deco style that was impressive, and the block had lots of other big colonial houses for sale although none of them had been renovated yet.
This house had it all, but it was a little unclear what the price was or even what company had it listed!

It was easy to walk through this house and imagine it restored and filled with colors and light, with a pool in the courtyard. It even had some large trees and palms in the back for instant tropical atmosphere.
If you have already been through the process of looking at Merida houses, especially ruins that are ripe for restoration, you know the feeling...you walk through house after house that doesn't really tick any of your boxes and then you go through the doors of a house that does.
This one was going to require some thought to be sure that we didn't lose our senses completely!
