This property has so much potential that it’s hard to know where to begin. My favorite parts are the outdoor areas. The entry patio is inviting and includes a large rock wall, a fountain, and planters. It sits adjacent to a spacious multi-car carport, accented with bovedas and arches, both of which provide traditional Mexican flavor.
The back patio is huge and includes more arches, another fountain, planters, and a small structure ready for outfitting with a grill and other outdoor cooking amenities. I like these patios so much because it’s obvious that with the proper finishes and landscaping, they would be great for your own personal enjoyment of San Miguel’s lovely weather as well as large scale entertaining.
Upon entering the property, you’ll notice the generous proportions of the living room, dining room, and kitchen. You could leave these divisions as is, or you might choose to remodel completely. Either way, you’ve got plenty of space to work with. There’s also a full bath and bedroom downstairs.
Upstairs is home to the master bedroom, which faces the backyard and has a bath with a large tub. Also upstairs are two more good-sized bedrooms which share a bath. Both feature a lovely, large boveda with cupola and a small balcony.
If you’re looking for rental potential, this property has that, too! A casita or 1-2 story apartment could be built at the front of the property. The foundation has already been prepared for a second story, and a private entrance could be easily created. Alternatively, there’s plenty of room in the backyard for an additional detached studio or casita.
A final area that could be developed is the roof. There’s ample space for the addition of a staircase and a large terrace. Imagine sitting under the shade of an umbrella, or relaxing on a chaise lounge and taking in the views of the city.
Finally, you’ll be able to really maximize your money in this location. It’s in the middle of San Antonio, which is a location that had been steadily developing over the last 5 -10 years, so you’ll find some nice homes here. This particular spot is within an easy flat walk to neighborhood “tiendas” like fruit and vegetable stores, butcher shops, local coffee shops and restaurants. It’s also about a 20 minute easy, flat walk to Centro.
Of course, the home is completely livable as is if you’re not ready to renovate. For your convenience, there is also a completely enclosed service area next to the kitchen. So go ahead, dream of all the potential.
