Our home has just been beautifully remodeled and features several pieces of contemporary art from local artists. The house has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, plus 2 WCs. It sleeps 4.
We are in Colonia San Antonio Norte, close to Centro, but far enough removed from the crowds and noise that one can experience there. From our door, it’s an easy 10 to 12 minute walk to the heart of Centro. Cars are not needed in San Miguel. One can walk practically everywhere in town. Taxis are also numerous and inexpensive.
One enters from the street through the first of two intimate lushly-landscaped courtyards into the main house. The ground floor features an open plan with a spacious Salon with fireplace, a Dining Area with a large table and seating for 8, and a WC. The bright, colorful kitchen is well-equipped and fun to cook in. From the Dining Room and Kitchen, large windows and glass doors open onto an interior Courtyard.
Pass through this courtyard to reach a second Bedroom suite featuring a double bed, fireplace heater and a beautifully designed ensuite bathroom with a glass block shower. This bedroom also has a surprise...a large, old mesquite tree that grows from inside the room, through the wall to the outdoors (mesquites are protected and this room was built around an existing tree!).
Back in the Main House, a cantera stone stairway leads to the second floor and the spacious Master Bedroom featuring floor-to-ceiling glass doors overlooking the front courtyard. The Master Bedroom has a beautiful cantera gas fireplace, ceiling fan, loads of closet and storage space, and a large flatscreen Smart TV. WiFi is available throughout the house.
Also on the second floor is the bright and spacious Master Bathroom with a marble counter and two handmade talavera ceramic sinks, a heated towel rack, a massive mirror with ample lighting, underfloor heating, enclosed WC, and a large glass-block walk-in shower.
From the second floor hallway, another cantera stone stairway leads to the third floor Family Room featuring a kitchenette with a small cooktop, bar sink, refrigerator and another WC. Exit through the beautiful mesquite and stained glass door outside onto a small, private terrace with potted plants and views above the rooftops of Colonia San Antonio.
From the Terrace, a stairway leads to a large roof deck with a beautiful view of historic San Miguel de Allende.
The house also has a large Garage where we have a clothes washer and dryer. The Garage an automatic door opener and is available for secure parking.
We have a property manager who is always available in case of any problems. We also have a housekeeper and gardener who come every week for cleaning, laundry, and maintenance.
San Miguel de Allende, a colonial-era city in Mexico’s central highlands, is well-known for its baroque Spanish architecture, thriving arts scene and it’s cultural events and festivals. In the city’s historic, cobblestoned center lies El Jardín and the neo-Gothic church, La Parroquia de San Miguel Arcángel, whose whimsical pink towers soar above the main plaza. El Centro, as the historic center is called, buzzes with activity each night yet is calm and peaceful during the day. Centro is the heart and soul of San Miguel.
Our home is in Colonia San Antonio, a quiet, residential neighborhood, an easy walk to Centro. The neighborhood is made up of both local mexican families, as well as expats, is charming and safe. San Antonio is known for its massive mesquite trees that can be found growing in the middle of street – and often through the walls of buildings (like ours!)Get the full listing »
