Description

Live the San Miguel life-style at its fullest with this one-of-a-kind quintessential colonial home with indoor-outdoor living featuring all the classic elements you expect to see, such as hand-painted talavera tiles, abundant quarry stone, amazing arches and boveda ceilings, excellent woodwork and cabinetry, wrought iron, chimneys, lava stone, ample spaces, fountains, and lush gardens.

The moment you step in this marvelous property you begin to imagine every possible scenario of what you would do if you were the lucky owner.

The potential of this one-of-a-kind home is enormous! From a spectacular villa to be enjoyed by your friends and family to a yoga & meditation retreat, an exclusive retirement home, a bed & breakfast, you name it.

If you decide to keep the main house with its vast land to live in, you could also develop more villas on the additional 1000m2 of land next to it for the perfect family compound either for your children, grandchildren, in-laws, or turn it into a business. There are two separate deeds, each with 1000m2 of land.This tremendous advantage of having two deeds could simplify many future projects.

The main attraction of this villa is the enormous garden space with its mature trees and elegant palm trees, its fountains, and the smell and the sound of nature giving you a sense of being in an eternal vacation.

Do you dream of a swimming pool? No problem! There is a vast area where you could build your own, and it can be so big that even those who go to a club to swim would envy you in a good way. There is enough area to expand the main house and have a great-size pool.

The house, even though it is not up to date when it comes to modern features, has the perfect bones to convert it into a splendid place to be featured in a magazine. The materials used throughout the house are lava-rock, quarry-stone (in Spanish "cantera"), good quality wood, excellent carpentry, saltillo-paver floors, wrought iron, beveled glass, and hand-painted talavera tiles.

This jewel has the convenience of one-level living. Yes, there are steps to get to the house but part of it could be converted into a ramp. Once you pass those steps it is all one-level. The layout is extremely convenient. As you enter the main door there is a foyer with a fireplace leading to an open concept living and dining room in the center, being this the focal point, and all three bedrooms go around this area separated by a hall. The living room has abundant natural light and a big fireplace,there is also a powder room for guests.

The master bedroom is currently going through some work, but it has a full bathroom and a bathtub, you can not get enough of the talavera tiles in this area. Consecutively, there are two smaller bedrooms sharing a full bathroom, both bedrooms have excellent cabinetry craftsmanship. All three bedrooms each have a fireplace .

The kitchen invoques a past century colonial design with all the talavera tiles that make it so classic. It leads to an outdoor terrace to enjoy meals al-fresco. There are three fountains in the property that when turned on give you that sense of peace and zen-state we all need.

Next you will see the maid quarters with a full bathroom.

The outdoor covered terrace architecture reminds you of the elegant Hacienda-style of the old days featuring beautiful arches, thick wooden beams on the ceiling, and a central chimney for those few chilli nights we can have during the winter season.

Los Frailes is a sought-after neighbourhood by the ex-pat community and Nationals because of its proximity to town; yet, maintaining the necessary distance to enjoy the relaxed life-style you can only find in San Miguel de Allende. This area also gives you a lot more for your money. This house, if it were to be located in Centro, would cost more than 3 million dollars. Los Frailes is a couple of minutes away from the main golf course in San Miguel, The Malanquin Golf Club. Downtown is only a short 10-minute drive.

If you want to live in a classic colonial home, look no further. This could be your diamond in the rough proud project.
