Casa Picacho is one-level living at its finest, located in the exclusive gated community of Candelaria. A meticulously landscaped garden of mature-growth indigenous plants and trees surrounds the property on all sides, providing a very private and tranquil sense of country living.
One enters the property through a lovely wrought iron gate, then follows a garden path, past a large fountain to the front door, which opens into a sky lit entrance hall flanked by soaring stone columns.
The spacious interior is a tribute to the craftsmen of San Miguel de Allende. The large, two-room, living/dining area has traditional arched boveda ceilings, saltillo tile floors and intricately carved cantera fireplaces. Tall French doors open onto the back garden with a covered terrace for outdoor dining and a beautifully tiled swimming pool. The garden backs onto an untouched natural high desert landscape, which is a haven for San Miguel’s colorful birds, including hummingbirds, blue jays and bright red cardinals.
The large kitchen was built for entertaining, with expansive tiled counter space, gorgeously carved cabinets and top of the line appliances. Two master bedroom suites, also with carved cantera fireplaces and boveda ceilings, have colorful Mexican-tiled en-suite baths and large closets/dressing rooms. All bedrooms open onto the garden – one of the master bedrooms has French doors leading directly to the swimming pool. A third bedroom on the far side of the house, also with en-suite bath and dressing area, is ideal as a guest room or spacious office or den.
Added entertainment bonuses include a large, dedicated screening room equipped with projector, speakers and screen, as well as a garden-adjacent wet bar with its own tiled fireplace.
The property has a gated carport and large bodega/storage area next to the main house. A nearby clubhouse includes tennis and bocci ball courts.
Candelaria is a gated community with 24/7 gate personnel. It uniquely offers a serene country-living experience just a short 10-minute drive to the bustling center of San Miguel de Allende.
