Casa Modo is an extraordinarily stylish hillside home on a charming and historic San Miguel street. The seller is a renowned art collector and antique dealer – and you can detect the hand of an experienced master in this light and art-filled house.


One enters off the street into a spacious foyer with a spectacular chandelier hanging from the traditional high beamed ceiling. A short, tiled staircase takes you up to a graceful outdoor colonnade adjacent to an open terrace with blooming old growth vines cascading down the walls.


The main living room opens onto the colonnade with three large floor-to-ceiling glass French doors. French doors on another wall open onto second terrace with a fountain. Surrounded by a second story mezzanine, the living room has a double-height ceiling with a dramatic, custom-designed chandelier hanging in the center. Light pours in from all sides and above from the mezzanine. A focal point in the smartly furnished room is a huge carved Cantera fireplace.

The open-plan dining area and kitchen also feature French doors opening onto the terrace on two sides. The room has a lovely country ambience with a fireplace and rustic cupboards. The colorfully tiled kitchen has a wide center island facing the dining room and top of the line appliances.


A staircase off the kitchen leads to the second-floor mezzanine.  Large French doors, offering incredible views of San Miguel Centro and the surrounding countryside, flank a central fireplace.  The mezzanine, with its rustic stone walls and beamed and brick ceiling, has a sophisticated, casually chic mid-century décor.  The open center of this floor, overlooking the living room, creates a great sense of light and space.


Off the open-plan mezzanine is the master suite. French doors on two walls offer light and views to a room furnished with an impressive hand-carved four-poster Mexican bed.  There is a large walk-in closet and traditionally tiled bath with a double vanity.


A rustic door and a second staircase off the opposite end of the mezzanine leads down to the two-bedroom guest wing. This wing can be closed off for privacy. Each bedroom, with en-suite bath, is thoughtfully furnished with fine antiques.  Large French doors bring in light and views. The guest wing can be accessed from a separate staircase that leads down to the first-floor foyer. All three bedrooms have fireplaces.


Up another staircase brings you to the roof top terrace with three separate seating areas. Because Casa Modo is on a hill, the views from the terrace are spectacular, with unobstructed 360-degree vistas of San Miguel’s historic Centro and the mountains in the distance.


Casa Modo is a prime example of San Miguel’s relaxed indoor-outdoor lifestyle, brimming with light.  It is being sold completely turnkey with a sophisticated collection of fine furniture, artwork and textiles. The house has top flight finishes and appliances and all glass doors and windows are double-glazed for effective sound-proofing. The house also includes a one car garage and wine closet.
