Casa Fuentes

$509,000 USD

Description

Casa Fuentes, nestled in a peaceful gated enclave above San Miguel’s historic center, is a delight any time of day. Most mornings, the sun lets itself into the master bedroom. Pull back the drapes and you’ll look east across a lush green expanse of private park.

If friends or family come to stay, they can do so in comfort. The bedroom across the hall is roomy, so guests can sleep in till they’re ready to come downstairs and join the day. It’s an easy house for hosting people, they can sit in the dining room and chat with the cook, thanks to the open floor plan.

The kitchen is a gourmet cook’s dream. Exquisite tilework abounds. All appliances are new, including a gas cooktop and a separate oven. Custom alder cabinets throughout, a built-in pantry with sliding shelves, and a pull-out spice rack.

For such a large house, it’s remarkably intimate. When the kitchen was remodeled recently, the architect put in LED cove lighting, which lends a bit of romance–as does the fireplace in the living room. A nearby den, with its own full bath, could serve as a third bedroom.

There’s a wonderful flow from inside to out, which brings us to the two studios in the back courtyard, separated from the main house and from each other by a covered patio and lush gardens with lemon, orange, grapefruit and pomegranate trees, flowering vines, a rainbow of bougainvillea, and even a “hidden garden” where tomato plants grow ten feet tall.

One studio is a perfect lair for a writer. The other, larger one, will be a visual artist’s delight. As the second studio adjoins a large garage, they could be easily transformed into an in-law unit with its own private entrance.

The patio is a great place to have drinks before moving inside for dinner–or walking into town. Casa Fuentes is only a 15-minute walk to the Centro and its happening nightlife.

But before you call it a day, there’s one more delight to enjoy. The master bath has a spa. Light a few candles, lace the steaming water with a few drops of lavender oil, and let the bubbling jets carry your cares away.
