It’s been said that “synergy” occurs when the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. This Centro pied a terre is just that, and once you’ve seen it, you too will want to be a part of the marvelous synergy at work here.
The first “part” of this whole is its privileged location, in the heart of Centro with a picture perfect view of the Parroquia. You’ll be within convenient walking distance to the jardin (the town square where the Parroquia is located), several large mercados(markets) including the artisans market, innumerable specialty stores of all kinds, the library, the city’s largest park, and several theatres.
The second “part” of this experience is the home itself. The living, dining and kitchen are laid out in an open floor plan, and when combined with the French doors leading to the patio, the end result is an airy, relaxing ambiance. Ceiling accent beams add interest, as does the uniquely styled fireplace that sits between two sets of built-in wood cabinets. The patio is highlighted by a water feature and includes the perfect amount of space to act as a charming breakfast nook.
Adjacent to the dining area is the kitchen. It features contemporary cabinets, recessed lighting, and a window that overlooks the front of the house. This window is key to Centro living. It will allow you to hear the call of the venders (you don’t want to miss those fresh flowers!) and to be in on the excitement when the occasional parade or wedding procession passes by. The kitchen includes a pantry, and storage is supplemented by a substantial built-in buffet behind the dining table.
There’s also a small flex room with adjoining full bath on the ground floor. It includes built-in closets. It too looks out into the patio, which serves as a nice source of natural light.
Upstairs is home to two en suite bedrooms. Similarly laid out, both bedrooms have direct access to another patio, include built-in closets, heating/cooling units, ceilings with textural interest and full baths with polished concrete accented by traditional talavera tile. This patio is another lovely space to catch some fresh air or enjoy an afternoon snack.
The staircase from the patio leads to the spacious rooftop terrace and its “crowning glory”, the larger than life view of the Parroquia. Here, you can practice yoga at sunrise, enjoy your morning coffee under the shaded area, and appreciate a good book while relaxing on the chaise lounges. If your thumb is green, this is a great space for your collection of flowering vines, herbs and succulents. And, during festivals, you’ll have such an absolutely spectacular view of the fireworks set off in the Jardin that you’ll want to host parties just for those occasions.
Another “part” of this synergistic equation are the options that it provides you, the homeowner. Because it’s being sold in near turn-key condition, you could move in tomorrow and with a shopping trip or two, be completely set. What’s more, the furnishings that are included are not only tasteful and inviting but create well defined living spaces that will make your transition a joy. This home is also a wonderful rental opportunity.
The fourth “part” of this whole are the amenities, which include the bedroom air conditioning and heating units, on-demand hot water heaters, washer/dryer, remote controlled gas log fireplace and an intercom phone to front door, all of which will make your life easier and more convenient.
So now, imagine all of these parts combined: the excellent location, the stylish house, the rental/turn key options and the amenities. It’s easy to see them coming together to form something far beyond a simple property, but rather, an exceptional San Miguel experience. The best and final part of all? You.
