Casa Corazon is a rare and wonderful find, with every attribute one could wish for in a San Miguel home. Located in a very tranquil corner of historic Centro, the house sits on quiet lane, or callejon, within walking distance to San Miguel’s central Jardin. Designed by one of San Miguel’s premier architects, the house is a sophisticated mix of traditional colonial design and modern conveniences.
Casa Corazon has a dramatic entrance from the street, opening onto an interior landscaped walkway leading to the front door. Centered around a central outdoor courtyard, every room in the house is flooded with light. On the first floor are the living/dining area, a bedroom (or den) with full bath, and recently updated chef’s kitchen with top-of-the-line appliances. The kitchen has a hot-water-on-demand feature and the entire house has a complete water purification system.
The living room has tall French doors leading to the central courtyard. A covered outdoor “living room” also opens onto the courtyard. Both the indoor and outdoor living areas have fireplaces. There is a second landscaped outdoor terrace on the ground floor.
The second floor is literally in the tree tops. A central outdoor terrace separates the primary bedroom/bath suite from the guest quarters. Each light-filled room overlooks a first-floor courtyard. The primary bedroom has a fireplace. A chic Luis Barragán-inspired stairway leads to a rooftop terrace with lovely city views of San Miguel.
Casa Corazon is an incredibly stylish home, whose furnishings have been chosen with a designer’s eye.
It is a warmly comfortable family home, but also ideal for entertaining, with its seamless integration of indoor and outdoor space. Casa Corazon is being sold furnished with some exceptions.
