Description

Welcome to “Casa Domus,” a sophisticated home that combines the colonial architecture of San Miguel de Allende with the contemporary Spanish architecture of Mexico. This property was designed and built by renown local architect Ana Delia Lopez to raise her family there.

A façade of Cantera frames, wood doors and climbing plants leads us into a traditional vestibule. To the left a great niche has been designed to serve as a family chapel, and to the right, a long hall with canyon boveda ceiling leads us into the first bedroom. Even though this room has a full bathroom and closet, it can also be adapted as an office or a guest casita, for it has an independent access.

That same hall leads us into the house´s focal point-the double height ceiling living room. The ceiling is a handkerchief boveda (from the Tuscan architecture of the 1400´s) with a cupula (Dome) that brings natural light into the space. But the ceiling is not the only impressive architectural element, for it also has a beautiful stone wall, a wood burning fireplace, a series of balconies from the second floor´s hall and tall cantera columns that give the space a regal-yet open feel.

Next to the living room, is connected to a formal dining room. The formal dining room has a tejamanil ceiling and is filled with natural light. This thanks to the large doors that lead to the back garden, but also because of the indoor fountain/light well that was designed for this purpose. Through this room, we access the breakfast room and the large kitchen.

The kitchen is practical and elegant at the same time. It is fully equipped with high quality appliances. Has a large butler´s pantry, a practical island, high end carpentry and granite countertops.

To the right of the living room hall, we can access the ground floor master bedroom. This room has a gas fireplace and a minisplit AC system, a spacious dressing room and a full bathroom. It also has direct access to the back garden.

The back garden of Casa Domus is guarded by four tall walls covered in trumpet flowers and other climbing plants, crating a private oasis to enjoy the sunshine of San Miguel de Allende. On one corner of the garden an outdoor terrace is surrounded by a swimming pool, on the other corner there is a full bathroom that services this area. This garden is designed to spend quality time with friends and family, and has access through the master bedroom, the living room, the kitchen, and directly from the street.

The second floor consists of three large bedrooms, each with its own full bathroom, closets, gas fire place, and beautiful boveda ceilings. All of these rooms are connected by a large hall that overlooks the double height living room.

In addition to the above-mentioned qualities of Casa Domus, it is important to point out the architect´s emphasis on the security and sustainability of this residence, integrating solar panels to reduce the usage of electricity, solar water heaters to service the swimming pool, as well as electric fences, CCTV and alarm system security.

Once again, welcome to “Casa Domus,” an ideal family home to enjoy the quality of life of San Miguel de Allende, “the most beautiful city in the world.”
