Casa Sancho Panza provides for you a great exposition of the commodities which the San Miguel lifestyle has to offer. Located upon the coveted street of Sancho Panza, it is a short, twelve minute walk to the footsteps of La Parroquia. Furthermore, the contemporary colonial style has been designed to capture the richness of both the town’s architectural heritage and the comforts of contemporary life.
Upon entering the main door you will be welcomed by a short hall which provides access to the main living area of the first floor and the tile-decorated stairs leading up to the second level. One of the greatest assets of this property is its practical layout: it allows for both one-floor-living, as well as a comfortable occupation of the entire house.
The ground floor counts with a ravishing open layout whose design pays a respectful homage to classic colonial architecture. The kitchen, living room, and master bedroom surround a charming courtyard covered by a retractible transparent ceiling. This means that you can enjoy all the fancies of an exterior space without having to sacrifice the commodity of indoor living. The kitchen and living area are open to each other and to the courtyard; this brings a peaceful ambience, making it seem as if the house were breathing by the delicate flow of fresh air and was complemented by the marvelous warmth of natural light. Adding to this is the splendid choice of the color palette which creates a delightful aesthetic balance. Also, the first floor has a half bathroom, a laundry room, and a garage. The garage is ample, with a storage room attached to it, and with space for a large car and a motorcycle. It is pertinent to add that the entire house counts with both a pressurization system and water purification system.
The master bedroom has access to this home’s courtyard with wide glass french doors, this means that the room has a plentiful intake of natural light all day round. Beautiful wooden beams decorate the ceiling, and the cozy fireplace will make sure you never spend a cold night. The master bathroom has separate sinks, a bath tub, and a shower.
Coming up the stairs you will find an open intermediate room which can be used as either an open studio or as the family room. The second floor has three bedrooms, two of which share a bathroom (found in the open studio/family room). The third bedroom is en-suite and has a gorgeous terrace where you can enjoy some hot coffee in the morning while reading your favorite novel.
The crown jewel of the house, however, is the rooftop, which shows the full extent of San Miguel de Allende’s beauty. From it, you can clearly appreciate the town’s greatest attraction: La Parroquia; and beyond, catch the sight of Guanajuato’s handsome natural scenery. This space is perfect for wine-parties, romantic dinners, or just as a safe space where you can rest from the toils of everyday life and allow the spectacle of the radiant sunset to wash all your worries away.
