Description

Lake Chapala Hacienda

Designed and built by the area's best architect, Gene Fortun, the house was the dream of a noted retired homebuilder from Georgia.

We acquired the house in 2009 and, until now, have never released it to the "rental" market. It is filled with art, oriental rugs, antiques, and fine furniture. The charming town of Ajijic is located at 6,000' elevation (the same as Lake Tahoe) creating one of the most sublime climates on earth. The house has two bedrooms in the main house, with a separate (unattached) two-story casita.

The latter has a bedroom (upstairs) and living room (downstairs)(with sofabed) and full bath/showers both upstairs and downstairs. An elevator delivers guests from the enclosed garage (two cars) to the main floor and to the masters' suite.

There is abundant outdoor living space (where we spend most of our time), including bar/BBQ area, outdoor fireplace, pool, and entertaining area. Views of the Lake from all vantage points. Kitchen, with dining area adjoining the living room (with another fireplace). Den/TV room with adjoining full bath. Office. Gym. Wine cellar.

A full-time staff (housekeeper/cook and gardener/pool man) work 6 days/week. Our management company that supervises the staff and oversees the property also will attend to all guest requests. Security gate with video monitor and remote entry access. Gorgeous gardens with abundant flowers.

Five fountains on the property.

Reviews

"UNO MAS" OVERLOOKING LAKE CHAPALA, Ajijic, Mexico

This remarkable house is a joy to visit. It is exquisitely detailed with wonderful art and furnishings. Situated with a perfect view of the lake, you have complete privacy while still being close to the activity of town should one want to have some activity. The open spaces, verandas, grill area and the heated pool are picture perfect. This house could be published in Architectural Digest. The owner of the house, Bob, was so hospitable and gracious in making us feel comfortable and extended every courtesy. He was a delight to work with and I hope to meet him one day and give him a hug. Cecelia and Juan were the staff and were so kind in taking very good care of us. I will go back again to Uno Mas. Ajijic is a wonderful little town with fun places to browse, and wonderful eating establishments. There are 2 spas located close --one about 20 minutes outside of town in the mountains with wonderful reviews. ”

Lake Chapala Hacienda

Absolutely spectacular home with wonderful amenities and beautiful views! The house is exquisitely decorated, but still comfortable and inviting. Robert, the owner, made us feel so welcome and gave us lots of terrific recommendations about sightseeing and restaurants in advance of our stay. He also has a wonderful staff who made our stay even more pleasant. We truly enjoyed our time there and wouldn't hesitate to go back.”
