Located at the crown of Upper Chula Vista at the end of a Cul de Sac Casa Simon enjoys stunning views looking to the Siera Madre Mountains to the North and Lake Chapala and distant Mount Garcia to the South and West

Located at the crown of Upper Chula Vista at the end of a Cul de Sac Casa Simon enjoys stunning views looking to the Siera Madre Mountains to the North and Lake Chapala and distant Mount Garcia to the South and West. Many homes have a South facing view but few have this long view that allows spectacular sunset viewing and a vista of the villages of San Antonio and Ajijic. Set back into the hill’s lee side you are also buffered away from highway noise. Your own quiet oasis.

The prestige community of Chula Vista is a just east of Ajijic. This well-established 30 year old subdivision is all about stunning views and beautiful homes and gardens. It offers a rare combination of convenience, and tranquility. It also boasts its own Chula Vista Golf & Country Club, with its challenging 9-hole course and tennis courts.

The street façade is quietly elegant with a solid entry gate as well as a double car gate under a stone arch. There is a  spacious carport but the eye travels to the left … to the pool …. The celebrated vista and the main home itself. The pool is newly tiled with a hibiscus flower mosaic, benches and even tiled underwater reclining loungers. It offers easy entry from the sun terrace with its outdoor shower and easy conversation seating from the slightly lower veranda that wraps the home. The pool level creates the infinity illusion as its edge matches the southwest half wall that shields neighbors rooftops. You look over it from inside the pool and its decks just seeing the view itself.

From the pool area a few comfortable steps take us to the homes main entrance and we enter a foyer. I love the scale of this space, it runs the width of the home with large mountain view windows at its end. The space is large enough for a grand piano and divides the homes public rooms to the left from its private bedrooms and home office to the right.

The flow in this house is exceptional. From the North end of the foyer we can enter the living room with its grand cantera stone gas log fireplace. This part of the house is U shaped, flows into to a second seating area, then into the dining room to the south, then back to the east thru the kitchen and into the foyer once more. We have walls of windows crowned with stain glass transoms with doors that flow out to the U shaped veranda terraces blurring the lines of indoor and outdoor living. This reverse hacienda design celebrates the views from every room and unites them together.

As we walk out onto the terrace the hand crafted stone pillars and mature trees frame the mountain views and a sloping lawn lead down to a neighboring lower street and another entry, This is a dream for a home owner with pets especially large dogs. The terrace is zoned with a workout area, casual living space, and outdoor dining with lake and mountain views. There is an additional sun terrace that is ideal for toasting the sunset with a glass of wine.

The homes dining room has lake and pool views and features an elegant chandelier over a dining table that was fashioned from a hand carved inlayed temple door that is glass topped and surrounded by high backed hand tooled leather hacienda dining chairs.

The kitchen has a raised tower ceiling with clerestory windows that showcases a wrought iron and blown glass flower light fixture. The kitchen was renovated this year with new quartz countertops and marble tiled backsplash. Arches frame the pass thru bar to the dining room and the south facing sink window. A large kitchen island is a functional centerpiece and there is even a coffee bar niche surrounded by pantry storage.

Off the foyer is a large spacious home office with a south facing paladian window. It has a large built in work desk and bookcases but also has 2 single beds that do double duty as day beds for an afternoon siesta but could also accommodate addition guests as an over flow guest bedroom.


A gallery hallway with skylights lead back to another guest room and the grand master. The Master suite is light and bright and has a majestic arch that connects it to an open concept bathing and dressing room. There is also a full bath ensuite, walls of window showcasing the mountain view and a door to the bedroom wing terrace.

The guest bedroom is large and light and has a full bath in the hall. There is a large linen and seasonal clothing closet in the guest room foyer.

Back in the carport there are several flex spaces. A big work shop store room and a small bedroom with full bath. Bridging these two spaces is a light filled room with a skylight, a wall of north facing windows and steps that lead to a roof terrace.

This is currently used as a laundry room and so is plumbed with water as well as gas. How would you use this space? It would make a stunning art studio with all that natural light or it could be converted to a full casita guest suite with a kitchen. I Love homes with flexibility!!! If you have an aging parent, want a live in caregiver or staff then this is a dream come true.


Casa Simon offers a peaceful and private estate life with spectacular views of the Lake, Mountain and villages. Located on a cul de sac in an established prestige community with its own golf course it also offers the convenience of nearby restaurants, shopping and even a brand new hospital.

The home is tastefully furnished and is being sold with furniture, rugs, drapes, dishes, serving pieces, pots and pans.

The solar heated pool is easy entry with custom features like tiled underwater loungers and a mosaic art flower. Sun terraces, shade terraces, gardens, and lawns bridging 2 streets. The perfect blending of indoor and outdoor living with casual and formal spaces. The master suite is expansive and the guest suite is inviting. A home office allows practical guest overflow and there is additional space for an art studio or casita. This is the dream that so many home buyers are searching for

ALL of this is offered at the competitive price of $875,000 USD Furnished and once more I can say with confidence that if you sleep on this one. You will NOT sleep in it!
