Casa La Vista is located in Colonia of San Antonio, which is an authentic Mexican neighborhood of tiendas, churches and schools, and is a short 15 minute stroll into Centro. This two-story home with a fantastic roof terrace is centered around two interior outdoor courtyards. The first courtyard has a “Crying Wall” – a waterfall that flows vertically down one side, bringing the soothing murmur of falling water and natural light into the interior.
A few steps up are two bedrooms, which are organized around a second landscaped central courtyard with fountain, giving each room plenty of natural light. The master bedroom suite faces on this courtyard with dramatic two-story glass doors. This bedroom has a ornately carved fireplace, separate dressing/closet room and bath with double sinks, beautiful tile work and a spectacular carved entranceway and door. The second bedroom, with sliding glass doors to the central terrace, has beautifully detailed storage space, a corner fireplace and an ensuite bath. The laundry room is also on this level.
The second floor is the living/dining and kitchen level. The kitchen has ample storage, state of the art appliances and an outdoor balcony overlooking the central courtyard that has been ingeniously turned into an outdoor barbeque patio. Skylights and windows on every side of the central courtyard keep this floor light and airy. The dining area is on the kitchen level and has a stunning wood-beamed ceiling. The open living area is a few steps up and is oriented around a beautifully carved central fireplace. There is an adjacent powder room next to the living area.
Behind the kitchen on the far side of the courtyard is a hallway that leads to a third bedroom and full bath. This space is currently used as an office, but could be a easily converted into a very private third bedroom.
Stairs from the living area go up to the rooftop terrace where the views are spectacular. There are two separate covered loggias, which provide panoramic views of Centro San Miguel and the distant mountains. The spacious terrace space is ideal for entertaining, with a wet bar and refrigerator on one end.
Casa La Vista is a Mexican-style house – with all the modern luxury conveniences. This casa is perfect for a buyer who wants to experience the authentic culture of San Miguel de Allende.
