Description

Nestled on a tranquil, secluded street in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, where time seems to stand still and the whispers of history linger in the air, stands a magnificent colonial home, a true gem awaiting discovery. As you step through the wrought iron gates, you are greeted by the embrace of lush greenery, for this remarkable estate spans not one, but two expansive lots. One lot is dedicated to the lush gardens and fountains, and the other is dedicated to the beautiful and luxurious home.

One half of the space is a verdant paradise dedicated to nature’s splendor, invites you to wander through meticulously manicured gardens, alive with the vibrant colors of bougainvillea, the soothing fragrance of jasmine, and the gentle rustle of ancient trees swaying in the breeze. Here, amidst the tranquil oasis, one can find solace and serenity, a sanctuary for the soul to rejuvenate and unwind. Here in this garden, you will find several areas for sitting and relaxing, a fireplace, and fountains to complete the serenity. It is also important to mention that this garden extends clear to the other side allowing access to Callejón de los Muertos.

But it is the second half that truly captures the essence of elegance and charm—a stately home steeped in history and adorned with timeless beauty. This 80-year-old colonial masterpiece stands as a testament to craftsmanship and architectural grace, its whitewashed walls basking in the golden glow of the Mexican sun.

Upon crossing the threshold, you are enveloped in a sense of grandeur and refinement, where every detail tells a story of a bygone era. High ceilings soar overhead, adorned with intricate wooden beams that echo the craftsmanship of artisans long past. Sunlight streams through the multitude of French doors that grace every room, casting a warm, inviting glow upon the polished floors below.

The main house, a symphony of space and light, boasts three graciously appointed bedrooms, each a sanctuary of comfort and tranquility. From the master suite, with its sweeping views of the verdant gardens beyond, to the cozy guest rooms, adorned with handcrafted furnishings and delicate linens, every corner exudes an air of understated luxury. Each of these bedrooms boasts its own bathroom and views of the gardens. Two bedrooms are located on the ground level.

As you ascend the gracefully aged staircase, with its steps worn smooth by the passage of time, the enchantment of this 80-year-old colonial home in San Miguel de Allende unfolds further. The second floor reveals itself as a realm of leisure and breathtaking views, crowned by a cozy TV room where comfort and culture blend seamlessly. This inviting space, bathed in natural light, offers a sanctuary for relaxation and entertainment, where modern amenities meet the timeless charm of colonial aesthetics. Surrounded by the high ceilings that characterize the entire home, the TV room serves as a perfect family retreat or a serene nook for unwinding after a day’s exploration of the city’s cobblestone streets and vibrant markets.

The true jewel of the second floor is the outdoor terrace, a space that transcends the ordinary. Stepping out onto this expansive area, you’re embraced by the open. Here, a majestic tree rises, its branches spreading wide to offer shade and solace, creating a living canopy that dances to the rhythm of the breeze. Beneath its protective embrace, a collection of wind chimes hangs, each piece carefully chosen, their melodies harmonizing with the natural sounds of the surroundings. The chimes sing in the wind, a symphony of gentle clinks and serene musical whispers that enchant the soul, adding an auditory layer to the visual poetry of the garden and city views beyond.

The terrace, with its panoramic garden vistas and tranquil ambiance, invites moments of introspection and gatherings alike. It’s a place where morning coffees are savored as the city awakes, where afternoons are washed away with a good book under the shade, and where evenings are crowned with the glow of sunset, the sky ablaze with colors that mirror the vibrant hues of the gardens below. Here, amidst the beauty of nature and the echoes of wind chimes, the essence of San Miguel de Allende is palpable, offering a timeless connection to the heart of Mexico.

But the allure doesn’t end there, for nestled amidst the verdant foliage lies a charming casita, a retreat where three additional bedrooms await. Perfect for guests or as a private sanctuary, this quaint abode offers a cozy haven for those seeking solitude amidst the beauty of nature. The casita is currently separated from the main house, but it can be easily adjoined to make the house even larger if need be.

Whether lounging in the shade of the veranda, savoring the melody of birdsong in the gardens, or basking in the warmth of a crackling fire on cool evenings, this enchanting colonial home offers a lifestyle of unparalleled elegance and sophistication. A haven of tranquility in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, where every moment is a celebration of beauty, history, and the timeless allure of Mexico’s colonial heritage.
