Discover a hidden gem in the heart of Centro San Miguel de Allende. Step inside and be whisked into a work of art and architecture. Tall ceilings of restored Mexican tejamanil wood ceilings, dramatic lighting and a 25’ tall domo of metal and glass that floods the interior space with warmth by day and stars by night.
A sala off the main reception hall is followed by one of the most beautifully designed and crafted kitchens; hand carved solid alder wood cabinetry and counters & range hood of carved crema maya marble, custom made in the Yucatán. From the kitchen, walk out into the central courtyard with floors and stairs of cut cantera and metal spiral stairways – a scene from an M.C. Escher illustration.
The home features three bedrooms, each with their own en suite and vintage talavara tile. While wood ceilings can be found throughout, one bedroom features a brick bóveda ceiling. You will also find three fireplaces and a gorgeous carved stone fountain. And extremely rare for homes within the historic UNESCO zone, this house fronts two streets with separate garage access for a small car. The garage contains a fourth full bathroom, currently used as staff quarters, a laundry area and a complete water purification system. If you don’t require the use of a garage, this space would be perfectly suited as a workout gym or easily converted into a studio casita with direct street access.
The home is configured as two buildings separated by a small courtyard and therefore has two rooftop spaces; a “secret garden” to enjoy a quiet afternoon reading or painting and a second grand terrace commanding 360 degree views of San Miguel including vistas of the Parroquia, Monjas, and San Antonio Church as well as the hills to the East and always dramatic sunsets to the West.
Located three flat blocks to the Jardin Principal (and the Parroquia), two blocks to Parque Juarez, one block to Sunday brunch at the Rosewood hotel or you can simply walk right our your front door and discover the emergence of art galleries, shops, cafes and restaurants along Hernandez Macias and Zacateros streets. This is the neighborhood to live in! And this is a true gem to call your home.
