Set only a few steps from the historic Santuario de Jesús Nazareno de Atotonilco (chosen as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO) lies Rancho El Paraiso. This classic hacienda-style investment property offers the best of both urban village living and rural tranquility, thanks to a front facade that faces the town’s charming main street, lined with food stands and vendors, and the completely unobstructed views from the nearly 6 tree-lined hectares of land in the back.
Featuring a combination of original 19th century and more recent construction, on the front portion of the property you will find a man house, guest quarters and two separate casitas, capable of sleeping a up to 11 people. There are also six horse stables, courtyards, gardens, fireplaces, outdoor living and dining spaces, and parking for several vehicles and much more. The living spaces are rustic and part of the magical atmosphere, but if your taste requires more modern facilities, with a little TLC this wonderful property offers the opportunity to live a peaceful country life and immerse yourself in an important part of Mexico’s history (Miguel Hidalgo took the flag of la Virgen de Guadalupe from the Sanctuary during Mexico´s Independence War). The land behind the dwellings is open and ready for light agriculture, building, or simply walking and annoying the natural serenity.
Atotonilco reminds us in many ways of what San Miguel de Allende was like 50 years ago. Nearby restaurants, hot springs, tiendas and food stalls guarantee that this quiet town will satisfy your daily needs. And the best is that this property is only an easy 10-15 minute drive (15 Kms) from downtown San Miguel and all of that town’s finest restaurants, concert halls, galleries and more.
This is a rare opportunity to capture a piece of history and create your own story.
