Casa del Cielo - Colonial Gem in Centro Morelia
Casa del Cielo - An Architectural Colonial Gem in Centro Histórico, Morelia.

This is a rare opportunity to own a historic colonial home in Centro Morelia, fully furnished and equipped, well-maintained, and ready to move into. Originally constructed in the 1700s, Casa del Cielo (House of Heaven) has been expanded and remodeled over the years. All rooms are on the ground floor (ideal for seniors or folks with limited mobility), except one small bedroom and bathroom on the rooftop level. Add a second story or extensive rooftop terrace to create an urban mansion. You could also easily develop two separate living units out of the existing floor plan.

The home’s interior features enormous windows that reach up to the 18 foot (6 meters) high wood-beamed ceilings, providing abundant natural light throughout the home. Thick cantera stone walls not only preserve Morelia’s unique colonial architecture but also keep the home cool in summer and warm in winter. Dual pane windows facing the street provide a quiet oasis inside the home.

Entertain your friends with meals prepared in the Mexican tile kitchen with modern conveniences such as a dishwasher and garbage disposal (both rare in Morelia). A reverse ionization/ultraviolet filter in the kitchen provides purified water. A solar water heater provides hot water, with a backup gas heater for those short cloudy periods. Plus, you’ll enjoy fiber optic blazingly fast internet service.

Sitting in the lush courtyard with the fountain bubbling, you’d never know that just outside are many restaurants within a five-minute walk, including two of the best in Morelia. Many parks and plazas, the cathedral, and resident-serving shops are a 5 to 10 minute walk away. An interior “cochera” offers secure, off-street parking.

Unique Features of Casa del Cielo:

● A horseshoe floor plan surrounding a central courtyard with many large windows and doors brings fabulous natural light to each room. This is a real contrast to many homes in Centro Historico that feature a “railroad car” floor plan with each room behind another.
● Floor to ceiling height is six meters (18 feet) throughout the house, with beautiful carved vigas (wood beams) adorning the ceilings.
● Ideal location near the Tarascan fountain in an area that is much quieter and less congested than the area near the cathedral, but still only a 10 minute walk to the cathedral.
● Bosque Cuauhtémoc, featuring running, walking and bicycling trails, picnic areas, benches, set among hundreds of trees, is a mere 7 minute walk away.
