The name says it all. Creating “Ranchito Mi Sueño” was the realization of a dream come true for the owner of this ranch, a consummate horseman with deep roots in the heart of Texas. This solid hectare spread with a heroically proportioned main residence, scaled replica of San Antonio’s famed Alamo, Wild West town and complementary secondary structures is nestled in the Rio Laja Valley. Ideally located alongside the UNESCO World Heritage village of Atotonilco, it is only minutes away from historic San Miguel de Allende.
The commanding, 7100 square foot, principal residence is an architectural achievement of monumental scale. This distinctive property also includes rodeo arenas, thematically appointed guest cottages in the “Alamo” fully equipped with kitchens, bedrooms and baths, stables, tack room, extensive storage and hayloft for a total of 9750 square feet of construction. The compound is self-sufficient with sustainable organic gardens, chicken coops and abundant supply of water. Currently set up for team sorting and barrel racing, the arenas may also be used for reining, cutting and hunter-jumper events.
The palatial entrance doors of the principal residence open into a dramatically soaring, three-story great-hall with a canyon-vaulted ceiling. Reminiscent of important houses and haciendas from a bygone era, the impressive construction– replete with bold arches, massive columns, additional vaulted ceilings, fireplaces and fountains– is expansive and spacious. Masterfully crafted in stone, tile and brickwork, this home resonates solidity and endurance.
A cantina kitted out for a Wild West Hollywood feature sets the stage for Texas-sized parties and fiestas with a dining area that accommodates a seated dinner for 42. The ample kitchen built around a top-of-the-line DRAGO Stove is equipped to produce professional-level culinary events. A media room, small gym, office and service quarters are among some of many additional enhanced amenities. The two outsized bedrooms en-suite with baths on the ground floor are rivaled only by the “Owner’s Retreat” on the second, comprising a lavishly proportioned bedroom, his-and-hers dressing rooms, bath and spa enfilade. A spacious terrace equipped for entertaining has sweeping views of the valley.
Think: longhorns, cowboys, horses, festive evenings with family and friends under the stars and unlimited possibilities for residential or commercial ventures. The dream of making “Ranchito Mi Sueño” a reality is limited only by your imagination.
