Historic corner building called La Fama in downtown Centro. This building dates back to at least the 1800’s. Size: 372 sq.m. or 4004 sq.ft.
Three floors of history: the actual corner facing the treed Jardin, has a grand commercial space with an entry on both streets, which over the years has been a clothing store, a rug store and now a cafe. There is a small customer bathroom. This space has its own electric meter as well. City water comes into the cistern of the entry to the second floor space.
The second floor begins on the ground level with a large room and tall windows. The caliche stone and high beamed ceilings are indicative of Mineral de Pozos colonial building style. The walls are currently plastered in old traditional design and application of polished cal. This area can be more commercial space OR an entry to a fabulous loft-style city apartment. (Or…another commercial business!)
The second floor is spacious. At top of the stairs, is another good sized room with two powder baths, his and her and a stone sink for both to share. The stairwell continues up to the third floor rooftop. Gas hook-ups in the floor for outdoor heaters to complete candlelight dining and views of our quaint town and Pueblo Magico.
Back to the second floor with a large bar/counter area and cafe-style kitchen (appliances not included). There is a water purifier and stereo hookup in a small area off kitchen.
Moving further into the space is the very large room with French door windows for balcony views over the town to both streets. Wood floors throughout. High beamed-ceilings about 12 ft. tall.
Last purchased in 2007, the current owner completely refurbished this historic building upgrading plumbing and electrical, not to mention the French doors, ironwork on balcony windows, beamed ceilings and wood floors.
