This incredibly charming, thoughtfully designed home is in El Paraiso, a secure, gated community in San Miguel de Allende with close proximity to both Centro and Plaza La Luciernaga. Casa Alegria’s advantageous corner lot brings San Miguel’s beautiful golden light into every room in the house, creating a warmly glowing atmosphere.
The ground floor has a large open-plan living/dining area with a dramatic two-story vaulted ceiling and grand fireplace. This soaring room is anchored on one end by a luxury chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line amenities, including a wine refrigerator and a large central island. Adjacent to the kitchen is a spacious laundry/pantry room. Also off the kitchen is a two-car garage with impressive storage facilities.
The living/dining area opens onto a serene open-air courtyard terrace with a sitting area facing a tall carved fountain surrounded by lush plantings. The kitchen has a separate door to this courtyard terrace as well. Back inside, down the hall, is the den with a full bath, extensive storage, and a corner fireplace. There is also a half bath on this floor.
A beautiful stone staircase leads up to a second-floor gallery seating area with a fireplace and high painted beamed ceiling. This open area overlooks the living/dining room below and gives a bird’s eye view of the beautiful vaulted ceiling and its dramatic chandeliers. Behind this area is an office with a half bath. Down the hall in either direction are bedroom/bath suites. Both bedrooms rooms have fireplaces and luxurious full baths, one with a free-standing tub.
On the third floor is an expansive roof deck with a covered outdoor living room. There are rooftop views in all directions – the ideal place to watch the spectacular San Miguel sunsets.
In addition to its charm, Casa Alegria has all the modern luxury amenities including solar panels, a mini-split in the Principal bedroom, and whole house water filtration, plus a reverse osmosis system in the kitchen.
