Situated in historic Centro, only two blocks away from the Jardin and our famous Parroquia, Casa Tecolote’s address is on Calle Aldama, recently named 4th “Most Beautiful Street in the World” by Architectural Digest.
Entering into this oasis of calm, an elegant hallway leads to a peaceful interior courtyard with fountain and mature greenery. On the way to the courtyard you pass the kitchen, dining room and living room to reach an outdoor living room facing the courtyard.
The large kitchen, overlooking Calle Aldama, has granite counter tops, a large island and extensive storage space. All the rooms on this floor have architectural skylights that bring in the natural light. There are fireplaces in both the indoor and outdoor living rooms.
A few steps up from the courtyard is a bedroom with full bath and fireplace – across the hall is an office space. This hallway leads to a second courtyard in the back of the property. Off this area is a full laundry facility and staff room with bath. A small casita – ideal as an office, staff room or teenage hideaway – has a full bath.
On the second floor, all rooms have French doors with Juliet balconies overlooking the downstairs courtyards.
The large Master Suite has a sitting area, dressing room and full bath. There is a fireplace in both the bedroom and sitting area.
A charming den/TV room sits off the main hall and leads to a third bedroom, also with dressing area, full bath and fireplace. French doors lead out to a beautifully landscaped outdoor terrace that fronts on Calle Aldama and has charming views across the neighboring roof top gardens.
The expansive third-floor rooftop garden is ideal for entertaining. Views of the Parroquia and historic San Miguel are almost close enough to touch. The terrace is high enough to give unfettered views of San Miguel’s legendary sunsets.
This classic San Miguel home has a custom sound system throughout the downstairs and comes fully furnished with a few art exceptions. Casa Tecolote is the rare opportunity to own a home on the finest street in San Miguel de Allende.
