Located in a small, quiet, gated community in Los Balcones, Casa Mariposa is a rare find. Charming and light filled, this colonial style 3 bedroom and 3.5-bathroom townhouse/condo is an easy 10-minute downhill walk to Centro.
Arrive to a generous courtyard with a fountain and a patio space beside the large pool and hot tub. This sunny patio with its lush gardens and trees creates a pleasant buffer between the pool’s common area space and the home’s private patio.
Enter the home into the foyer. This floor has a bedroom with an office area,
en-suite bathroom, closet space, linen closet and screened, double french doors leading out to the private patio area. The opportunity for one level living is rare in San Miguel, making this feature very desirable.
An open concept living room and dining room with several windows and a tejamanil ceiling also has access to the private patio – that provides additional sitting and dining areas. The kitchen, tiled with local talavera tiles, has a pass-thru connecting the dining room to the kitchen, as well as a window above the sink with breathtaking views of the canyon. Slide-out pot drawers, a lazy Susan, lots of cupboard space, a garbage disposal unit and a dishwasher are just some of the upgraded features that this kitchen includes.
A spacious half bathroom with undersink cabinets containing a small freezer, wine fridge and additional storage complete the main floor.
The second floor, accessed from the easy-to-climb staircase with skylight, features two king bedrooms – each with an en-suite bathroom, large closets and a screened slider door to its own private terrace overlooking the pool and with a view to the mountains. The first bedroom also features a boveda ceiling and built-in office area and the second bedroom also features a gas fireplace.
The washer/dryer and another storage area are also on the second floor.
Screens on all of the main windows and doors of the house allow for nice cross ventilation. The living room and each of the 3 bedrooms also have overhead ceiling fans.
The amenities of this well-managed and beautifully maintained gated community include a full-service/on-site manager, gardener, night watchman, pool, hot tub, gym and a private/secure garage for either parking or additional storage.
Casa Mariposa is offered mostly furnished with exceptions.
