Imagine waking up in the heart of San Miguel de Allende, at Casa Paloma. This architectural masterpiece, envisioned by the globally celebrated House & House architects, seamlessly blends contemporary luxury with the enduring allure of a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Let’s start from the top of this unique home: the one-of-a-kind roof terrace. From this level, the vistas are unparalleled. One can soak in 360-degree views of San Miguel de Allende, capturing landmarks like the lush Guanajuato mountain range, the iconic Parroquia, Las Monjas, and San Antonio’s stunning Parroquia de San Antonio de Padua.
Descend in the state-of-the-art four-stop elevator to the second floor and step inside to see the open-plan design of the kitchen, dining room, and living area. Sunlight filters through expansive windows and French doors, illuminating a fully-equipped kitchen adorned with polished concrete counters. Adjacent, a spacious dining room and a cozy living area beckon, separated only by a bespoke gas fireplace that adds warmth to your evenings. Slide open the doors to a terrace that offers unmatched views of San Miguel’s horizon; sunsets are exquisite from this level.
A delightful variety of local cacti welcome you when you descend to the street level using either the elevator or the handcrafted ironwork staircase. The master suite here is more than just a bedroom; it’s a sanctuary. With a generous ensuite and a lavish shower room that promises relaxation, it’s a space you’d never want to leave. And for those days when work calls, an office area ensures you remain productive without compromising on comfort. This floor also houses a garage and a utility room, equipped with a washer and dryer for modern conveniences.
But Casa Paloma’s allure doesn’t end here. The basement introduces a new dimension of leisure and entertainment. A vast family space, perfect for gatherings, anchors this level. Adjacent to it is a guest bedroom with an ensuite, ensuring the comfort of overnight guests. For recreation, a games room beckons with offerings of ping pong, darts, and table football. Two additional spacious rooms on this level offer endless possibilities, from extra bedrooms to a home theater, a wine cellar, or a music studio.
The living area here opens out onto an oasis-style garden, where a covered terrace with an outdoor gas fireplace sets the stage for many memorable evenings. A built-in BBQ area, complete with a fridge/freezer, kitchen station, and running water, promises delightful outdoor feasts. The garden’s design, the brainchild of a famed local landscaper, showcases a rich variety of local cacti, lavender, olive trees, pirules, and winding bougainvillea. A handcrafted camel sculpture and a water feature fountain, which together evoke the atmosphere of a far-off, exotic land, are the focal points of this lush paradise.
Sustainable living is also at its core, with solar panels and a water purification system integrated into its design.
Casa Paloma is situated in the increasingly popular Colonia Allende, a neighborhood brimming with local charm and a fresh vibrancy. Recognized by its iconic duck sculpture, Allende is a harmonious blend of locals and expatriates. Wander down the scenic Cinco de Mayo street, dotted with local vegetable shops and eateries, or take a leisurely 10-minute stroll towards Parque Juarez and the picturesque Guadiana area.
Don’t miss the opportunity to visit Casa Paloma. It’s not just a residence; it’s a journey through architectural brilliance and luxury in San Miguel de Allende.
