A renovated duplex awaits on Prolongacion Insurgentes just 2 blocks from the border of Centro, with its proximity to downtown attracting the attention of both tourists and long-time residents. This pocket of San Rafael maintains its cultural diversity through trendy theatre and restaurants, and the San Juan de Dios Mercado which holds the very heart of town. The 1700 structure of Iglesia de Santa Cruz stands across from the duplex sharing its beautiful face, and new architecture built to emulate the ancient church is next door. The unique structures and angled streets around the duplex complement its appealing, elongated shape which makes it well suited for two, three story apartments. Each one has an amazing Parroquia view from 2 private rooftop terraces. Large windows inside the apartments are positioned to bring in the sun all day long, with views of the church and a newly restored park; it is a small park for contemplation under its blooming Jacaranda tree and was restored cooperatively by the devoted neighboring home owners. Ceramic inlaid flooring, stained glass, skylights, a cupula, and high ceilings with wooden beams add to the warmth and character of these two apartments, each with a solid rental history. On demand hot water heat, 2 laundry rooms and a pleasant foyer entrance bring added enjoyment to this delightful duplex in an exceptional location.
