Casa Brevis is another home renovated by Henry Ponce. It is in our top 10 because we really like the finishes, the house has lots of light, is very open, and the "special" living room with a really long trough fountain is a great feature. We like the simple, tasteful, uncluttered look, and the spacious kitchen. When we opened the front door of this home, we were greeted by workmen with scaffolding erected in the front room and one of the bedrooms. They were there cleaning the floors, scraping the walls, and painting. The beautiful floors were covered in dust as were all the other surfaces. The house is described as "a small, but stylish historical home. The professional photography can play tricks on your eyes. The photos make the rooms appear deeper and the hallways longer. The pool and garden area is really quite small, but nice nonetheless. We were disappointed that there was no covered terrace area outside - a problem if you want to be outside in a space with ceiling fans. And then there is the lack of adequate ( for us gringos ) storage space. I think the message here is that we can and should do with less 'stuff'. Casa Brevis is located on Calle 51 in Santa Lucia and is a stone's throw from the Remate and all that is going on in Centro. A look at the video will confirm that this could also be a nice place to call home!
