Pearched high atop a hill over Parque Juarez, Casa Heyne is an artisan masterpiece. Designed by architect Pedro Urquiza, this extraordinary residence was faithfully built using only the 400-year-old tools and techniques of Colonial Mexico. The result is an authenticity you can sense the moment you step though its antique mesquite doors. Walls are thick, made of sun-dried adobe brick and limestone, not concrete. The great room features an exquisite wood ceiling with site-milled beams, a “floating” hand-waxed wood floor, and panoramic views of the Centro Historico. A wonderful outdoor fireplace is carved directly out of the heat-radiating solid rock that was found on the building site. The Puebla-style kitchen sparkles with floor-to-ceiling tiles. Commercial grade appliances—two ovens, a gas cook top and grill, a deep fryer, and a smoker/grill are tucked away behind hand-tooled cabinets to preserve the Colonial feel. The spacious 1,700-square-foot master suite features three fireplaces, a private terrace, and a living room with office. Five guest suites—Vista, Privada, Cactus, Morocco, and Adobe—are each decorated with a charming theme. Casa Heyne is a residence like no other. You owe it to yourself to see this magnificent artisan home today.
