Casa Sisal: Hacienda Sac Chich

Merida, Mexico
Architect Salvador Reyes Rios Recalls Ancient Mayan Techniques to Create a Villa of Sublime Modern Beauty

Designed by Yucatan architect Salvador Reyes Rios, this home uses the latest technologies and techniques to achieve results that are both historically authentic and original in vision.

Located in the small village of Sac Chich in the most historic region of the Yucatan, the home is placed on over two acres of what were once ancient henequen drying fields for industrial production of sisal. Surrounded by the original ten-foot masonry walls of a historic neighboring Hacienda that shares the property, the fields are now a massive lawn area lined with royal palms that create a large but very private world all your own.

Constructed using the ancient Mayan technique of chukum, the limestone and plaster are polished to a sleek finish that’s elegant and earthy.

Entirely open through the middle of the structure, the central living area along with the oversized ceiling and door heights give every room a dramatic sense of space.​With a sunken living room, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen, the house is ideal for entertaining and divides the private sleeping spaces to either side. With two bedrooms and two baths, it comfortably accommodates up to six.

To one side of the house, you’ll find a patio with a large lily pond and to the other, a beautiful three-sided infinity swimming pool, palapa, and patio for dining and lounging.

Designed to highlight the beauty of the Yucatan as well as a unique architectural experience, this is a memorable and luxurious home.


HISTORIC YUCATAN

Located in the Mayan village of Sac Chich just a half-hour from the city of Merida, you are just outside of the town of Acanceh, and just under an hour from the famous Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza, Izamal, and the port town of Progresso on the gulf of Mexico. 

Situated along the convent route, there are several historic convents not to be missed including Tecoh, Muni, Mani, and Ticul as well as the Mayan Site of Mayapan. The Loltun Caves and Uxmal are an hour away and you're within a short drive to the many amazing cenotes or secret caves where you can swim in crystal clear water. Cancun is a 3-hour drive.

A Modern Homage to Historic Authenticity

The dramatic scale and sublime architectural lines of this award-winning home are in striking contrast to the vast great lawn and jungle that surrounds it. A cool fusion of modern design principles and a faintly Mayan sensibility, we love the inspired creativity and simplicity here.

First place winner of the coveted Cemex Award for both residential and international architectural excellence, this stunning home makes an immediate visual and emotional impact.
