Colonia Mexiquito house description

For more information and photos check out our website, located under Further Details.
Beautiful San Miguel de Allende...Conde Nast did a recent survey of over one million travel readers on the BEST city to vacation and visit,,,,SMA came up number one in the world...My casa is in up-and-coming Mexiquito, a comfortable 20-minute walk from the Jardin. Great roof deck with a breathtaking view of San Miguel. Spacious, airy, high-ceiling rooms with wonderful light. Cool architectural details. Comfortably furnished. Near bus stops and taxi stations. Quiet, lush neighborhood. Hip, uncluttered decor with art and furniture from local artists. Perfect accommodations for cooking, fitness, shopping, and art groups. Ideal housing for photography or film crews. Extremely private. Modern conveniences and fully-working appliances. On-site laundry. High-speed wireless internet service. Telephone service. Electricity voltage comparable to U.S. voltage. Great place to hang out!


Overall design and style: Casa de las Ventanas is a 3-story, 4500-square foot house in the northwest section of San Miguel de Allende in an area called Colonial Mexiquito. The house was originally built in 2000 as the vision of an American architect and follows the style of a modern bed-and-breakfast. Comfortable and unpretentious, the overall effect of the house is of an airy, hip, international hotel. If you enjoy the Thames and Hudson series of 'Hip Hotel' books, you will appreciate the style and individuality of the Casa. For more photos, please click on the link below.

Tour of the Casa: You enter the property through a beautiful wrought-iron gate into a brick courtyard. The front door leads up a wide, inviting staircase to the guest level of the house. The guest floor features four large, well-appointed bedrooms each with their own attached bath and own private balcony with gorgeous views of the city of San Miguel. Guest bedrooms 2 and 3 have very unique bathroom setups, including open-style showers and poured-concrete, free-standing sinks. The guest floor hallway is filled with light from the floor-to-ceiling windows facing the front courtyard and the cobblestone street.



Tour of the Casa continued: Up an open staircase to the main floor, you will find a large, lofty, light-filled living room with an open kitchen on one end and a large brick-walled fireplace on the other. The entire length of the room has enormous picture windows giving you a sweeping view of the rolling hills, beautiful architecture, lush vegetation, and sometimes the midnight fireworks of the city. Fortunately you can enjoy the view without the noise, as the Casa is far enough away from the Centro to be quiet and private.

You will also find a large bedroom and adjoining large bathroom on the main floor, also with its own private balcony. Up one more open flight of stairs and you will reach the roof deck, the perfect place for margaritas at sunset. The roof terrace is a large, sun-drenched space that spans the space of the house and has the most expansive view of San Miguel to be found in the Casa. While on the roof deck at the Casa de Las Ventanas, you will feel close to the sky, the clouds, and the stars.
