Casa Jackie’O$985,000 USD FOR SALE
Situated within a discreet, private and gated cul-de-sac, centrally located in the heart of San Miguel de Allende’s greenest and lushest sub-tropical microclimate—known as Cañadita de los Aguacates—this modern masterpiece will make for an easy transition for anyone finding it difficult acclimating to San Miguel’s extremely comfortable and laidback lifestyle.
The home is a signature design from world-renowned architect Norman Lacayo, a local favorite who once again delivers some of the key elements that have marked his extraordinary career; exemplified by his use of first class materials, high quality construction, thick walls, stunning arches, ample sources of natural light and the creation of contemplative spaces that transmit an overwhelming sense of peace, tranquility and well-being that permeate throughout the entire home.
As we enter the home, we are greeted by the master guest suite on the first floor, which features an iron French double door window, providing fresh morning air while basking the room in the warm afternoon sun. The suite is complimented by spacious closets as well as an en suite bath.
Climbing up the main stairs we are treated to an open-air foyer, which makes for the first of several communal spaces, where one can read a book, water the plants or enjoy a pleasant conversation.
The foyer connects to the master bedroom which contains two large windows that provide spectacular views of the San Miguel valley below as well as allow plentiful light throughout the afternoon. The bedroom’s ceiling boasts wooden beams as well as spacious closets and an en suite bath with double sinks and a bathtub.
The foyer also connects to two additional bedrooms, each communicating with one another, which are ideal for hosting families that are accompanied by children. Each bedroom contains its own en suite bath as well as ample closet space.
Continuing up the stairs from the main foyer, we are treated to the main living room, with its high-arched and wood-beamed ceilings, spectacularly large window with views over the tree canopy and a fireplace. The living room adjoins to the dining room and makes for a cozy combination for those that enjoy wining and dining with friends and family.
Lacayo excels at creating peaceful, communal, contemplative spaces and here he has created two such spaces on either side of the living room / dining room area. The first is the terrace with its spacious patio and long couches, which could host a barbeque while affording guests a front row seat for the magical San Miguel sunsets over the valley below. The second is a private rear garden, which connects from the living room through a pair of folding French doors, with its constantly burbling sheer rock waterfall, idyllic for enjoying a warm breakfast or a cool lunch, or just having a Zen moment to oneself.
The home also features a handsomely decorated kitchen with charming views of the rear garden, a convenient laundry room, a one car garage, two guest bathrooms and solar paneling. Due to its enviable location, desirable privacy, ingenious design and quality construction, this home will not last long on the market, as the lucky new owners are surely just a few a clicks away…
