Quinta La Merced
Quinta La Merced was designed by a Spanish architect, following the "Cortijo" style and was built using traditional techniques and materials. The property includes the main house and a caretakers cottage. Its gardens are full of blooming plants year round. The barbeque area includes Argentine-style grill, bread oven & prep sink. Strolling paths wind through formal plantings & fruit trees to the newly-renovated clay tennis court, pond and greenhouse.
A beautiful arched door leads to a courtyard with fountain & hammocks. Doors from patio lead to the living and dining rooms with a fire place. These rooms are designed using exposed eucalyptus beams and carrizo ceilings. Eclectic decor includes sari & dupioni drapes, estatefinds, colonial-style paintings and textile items. French doors to the courtyard. TV with Blueray DVD player. The kitchen is large & equipped with fireplace, modern appliances & island w/5 stools. Yet another fireplace makes the kitchen cozy. 3 bedrooms (double, double and single) and 3 bathrooms complete the first floor.
Glass double doors in the courtyard lead up tile-accented stairs to the upstairs. This level includes an ENORMOUS master suite (king size bed) with sitting area and balcony. The master bath has a large dressing area, his and hers vanities, separate shower and a soaking tub overlooking the grounds. Another bedroom (single bed) with en suite full bath and yet another bedroom with a pair of single beds. All rooms have a fireplace.
