Quinta Quetzacoatle (House of the Plumed Serpent) is a fantastic, historic home, located in a beautiful part of Mexico just 30 minutes south of Guadalajara – Mexico´s second largest city. Currently operating as a Hotel it offers further potential for a variety of uses.
The location in Chapala is just a stroll to Mexico´s largest fresh water lake – Lake Chapala. The area is loved by both Mexicans and Foreigners because of its temperate climate, natural beauty and easy proximity to the City and International Airport.
Locals from all parts of Mexico love to come here for leisure, to be married, to play on the lake. Foreigners are attracted here because of the relatively low cost of living, together with great medical and dental facilities.
This colorful historic home is just a short walk to everything – the town of Chapala and its varied restaurants, the Lake and its Malecon (boardwalk), markets and shops. Yet it is whisper quiet behind high walls – and so secure!
Seven suites – all with en-suite bathroom & access to a terrace or garden area, enjoy the large garden with swimming pool and jacuzzi. An elegant one bedroom (owners') apartment boasts its own private terrace & roof access.
The garden compound comprises the historic home built 1910-1912 & later extended further by Luis Barragan. Five smaller properties, owned by others form part of a Home Owners' Association with the main house and this allows you to have a large property but to contribute approximately only 40% to the running costs of the pool and garden areas.
This elegant historic home is where D,H. Lawrence wrote his book ¨The Plumed Serpent".
It offers a great lifestyle to new owners and many exciting options!
