HACIENDA TRULY WORTH RESTORING! SANTA MARIA ACU
A grand henequen hacienda with elegant Porfiriano architecture - five buildings set around three sides of a large open grassy courtyard: casa principal, casa de maquinas, bodega, desfibradora and casa de administrador. All in all the buildings are in good condition to restore, with the roof replaced where this has been necessary..
The Casa Principal has a beautiful columned terrace running the length of the facade and is U shaped, with six large salas along the length and two more in each wing. The rear of the house overlooks the extensive manicured park with fruit trees and a raised area with noria and swimming pool. There are many old walls with side corrals and the remains of stables. Beneath the Casa Principal are many more rooms - the old “calaboso” and storage rooms, many with old wooden hammock hooks in the walls, all completely dry and useable.
The fabrica has a very high ceiling and the remains of part of the old henequen-processing machinery of historic interest, and a tall chiminea typical of the period.
All around the hacienda are evidences of Yucatan’s history - spacious patios and walkways made of cut stone taken more than a hundred years ago from the Maya ruins on the property.
Three of these are adjacent, one separated by several streets. This separate parcel has the remains of a Maya ceremonial center, now simple mounds of stone. It is currently hard to visit as it is overgrown.
Location is close to Halacho, Yucatan, approx. 85 km SW from Merida International Airport. Please note there will be a showing fee of $50 US to cover time and gas, as it is will take a full half-day. Any showing costs gladly refunded at purchase.
