Casa-ron is an airy artist’s garden home in the heart of town – a serene sanctuary arguably located in the best neighborhood in town – Colonia Guadiana. One block away from Parque Guadiana and steps from the Ancha San Antonio, it proves the adage that, in San Miguel, you never know what treasures lie behind the door.
This serene garden property has two buildings behind the three-car garage façade – a main house and a casita separated by a mature flowering garden with its very own banana tree. On the right, a door leads to stairs to the casita. The left side garage has been converted into a wide arched shady entryway that opens onto a garden path to the main house at the back of the property. This lush garden path ends at a landscaped terrace with pond, just outside the home’s front door. This door leads into a traditional Mexican light-filled hacienda style home.
Inside are beamed ceilings with skylights and wide Mexican archways connecting living/dining/kitchen and art studio. Natural light from a sunny walled outdoor back patio floods through large arched French doors into the living/dining area. A second skylit living room has a fireplace and access to the garden. The spacious open kitchen is traditionally Mexican with updated appliances. A powder room and laundry are also on this level.
The stairwell to the second floor has a boveda ceiling hung with a charming artisanal chandelier. There are two bedrooms, a study and a full bath on this floor. The master bedroom has a wide arched window overlooking the back patio, a beautiful beamed wood and brick ceiling and access to a private outdoor terrace. The study, second bedroom and bath all have traditional brick boveda ceilings.
At the front of the property, over the ground-floor garage, is the casita/guest house with living room, small kitchen, bedroom, bath and outdoor terrace. The living room has a wonderfully big picture window overlooking the colorful garden that leads to the main house.
Casa Ron is a rare property – a serene and relaxed traditional Mexican country home in the heart of San Miguel de Allende.
