Casa de Artista is a visually stunning, very modern home in a serene privada, just blocks from
the heart of San Miguel’s bustling Centro. The architecture of the house is gracefully dramatic,
providing an elegant backdrop for one’s art collection.
The double-height, open-plan living/dining/kitchen area is flooded with light from tall glass
doors that lead to an outdoor central courtyard. The living area is also lit from above via
dramatically large skylight windows. This open area has a fireplace and gourmet chef’s kitchen
with top-of-the-line appliances, large center island and plentiful storage. This floor also houses
a walk-in pantry, separate office, laundry room, powder room and garage. Just off the foyer,
the house is equipped with a full sized elevator within its own room.
Down the hall is the master bedroom with ensuite bath. The bedroom opens onto the central
courtyard and has a fireplace and large walk-in dressing/closet areas. The master bathroom is
brilliantly luxurious and very large. It has a glass enclosed double shower room and free-
standing bath tub. A work out room is adjacent to the dressing area.
The various finishes in the house are of outstanding quality. Of particular note are the custom-
designed graphic black and white tiles in the kitchen and on the outdoor terrace floor; the
beautiful master bath, and the marble countertop and backsplash in the office – which give the
home workplace true panache.
An additional acknowledgement of the creative genius of Casa de Artista is the extraordinary
mural on the wall of the outdoor courtyard. Based on a photo, it was realized in painted tiles
by a local San Miguel artist.
A graceful floating staircase of marble steps leads to the second floor. This floor has a TV lounge
area with floor-to-ceiling glass doors that open on to a large sunny rooftop terrace. The terrace
has an outdoor kitchen, fire pit and scenic views of the distant hills. This floor also has two
charming guest rooms each with elegant ensuite bath.
Casa de Artista is a thoughtfully designed and luxuriously appointed home. Much of the
furnishings and some art, including several exquisite light fixtures, will be included with the house.
This beautiful home in a serene location, within a short level walk of the main plaza, will
appeal to a discriminating buyer with an appreciation for fine contemporary architecture.
