I love walking through the Jardin and taking it all in – the mariachis belting out love songs, the bells tolling, the brilliant hues of blooming flowers and traditional garb. Yet at the end of the day, I want to go home to peace and quiet. I want tranquility. I don’t even want the colors to be loud. If you feel the same, this home might be just what you’re looking for.
First of all, it’s located in a quiet but conveniently located, residential pocket of Centro. It’s a level flat walk to the Jardin, and just around the corner from the artisans market and the Ignacio Ramirez mercado. What’s more, it sits within an enclave that hosts 4 other homes by the same architect, which will help maintain its value and appearance.
As you enter, you’ll appreciate the clean design and classic finishes which create a relaxing effect. The natural materials of the tejamanil ceilings, custom ceramic tiled fireplace and cantera floor tiles add warmth, as does the extensive light brought in through the light well, which extends from the ground floor staircase to the open den to the roof. The living room and dining room are laid out in semi-open floor plan that flows easily toward the sunny back patio.
The kitchen is a jewel with marble countertops and cabinets made of sustainably harvested banak wood. French doors open to the front patio.
Upstairs is home to the master bedroom with a walk-in closet and a private terrace that overlooks the rear patio garden, providing great western views. The master bath is light-filled, spacious and has double sinks. The 2nd bedroom upstairs, which could serve as a studio, study or guest room, also has its own bath.
An additional living area is found at the top of the stairs, and could be purposed as a family room or office. It’s a space full of light and could also be enjoyed as a sitting area. And, for those days when you just can’t get enough sun, the rooftop terrace is yet another option. It’s completely tiled, as large as the footprint of the house and provides views to the west and church tops.
This particular home also features a casita – a bedroom suite with boveda separated from the rest of the house that could serve as a guest room, man cave, artist’s studio, or master bedroom for those who prefer ground floor living,
Amenities include a garage door, conveniently located laundry area and whole-house water filtration and water softening system.
It’s not a dream, it’s right here, waiting for you—your tranquil home with multiple areas to relax and enjoy the good life of San Miguel de Allende.
