Guanajuato City house description

GUANAJUATO: the crown jewel of Spanish Colonial cities in the Mexico highlands! Settled in the 1550's, the city looks more like towns in southern Spain, Italy, or Portugal than most in Latin America. Exceptionally mild climate at 6600 ft above sea level; amazingly diverse and cosmopolitan arts. Annual Festival Cervantino runs through most of October and with performers and artists from across the world.

This beautifully renovated house is in the center of Guanajuato, within minutes' walk of the Mercado Hidalgo, Jardin de la Reforma, Plazuela de San Fernando, Alhondiga, cathedral, Jardin Union, Teatro Juarez, and Festival Cervantino venues - the heart of the best Colonial Highland town in Mexico - two blocks from the 'Callejon del Beso' (alley of the kiss) above Plaza de los Angeles, and on one of few streets accessible by car in the Zona Centro (but we discourage driving large vehicles - Suburbans or big SUVs - down our narrow one-way street).

FIRST FLOOR:
Tall Colonial-style wood beam ceilings in living room and one bedroom - both with shuttered window embrasures facing street. Bedroom has double bed, closet, and full set of Colonial-style furniture.
Double keystone arches separate large living room from dining room with formal dining table.
Complete kitchen with all appliances - gas stove, dishwasher, refrigerator, microwave - and a complete set of cookware and colorful tableware for six from Talavera Vasquez in Dolores Hidalgo. Washer and gas dryer in utility area next to kitchen and first floor bathroom and shower.
SECOND FLOOR:
2 bedrooms - a master suite with king bed and bath en suite, with 3 French doors opening onto small balconies overlooking Callejon San Cristobal; and a second bedrooom with double bed and casement windows opening onto interior stairwell, and large bath adjacent. A reading room on second floor - with a huge sliding window wall and balcony facing the city center - has a loveseat that folds out into a large twin bed. Glass block skylights flood natural light into stairwell, second bedroom, hallway, and baths while affording privacy and security.
ROOFTOP TERRACES:
the entire roof of the house is made up of two terrazas with seating and tables for 6 on lower terrace and large pavilion with table and seating for 4 on upper terrace; breath-taking views of Zona Centro and most of the city and surrounding mountains.
MISCELLANEOUS:
tankless hot water heater supplies entire household without problems. 3 baths have gorgeous talavera sinks and tiling (as does the kitchen). Linens and towels supplied.

          Manager info

          Year Purchased: 2007

          About: We quite accidentally spent a week in Guanajuato during the brief time between the Festival Cervantino and la Dia de los Muertos and were swept away by the visual and musical beauty of the city. Just go - you will not regret it!

          Why Guanajuato City:
          more public entertainment and music, more accessible art and culture than any city of like population that we've ever seen - great weather year 'round and particularly in the winter (the dry seaon in the Colonial Highlands)....

          The Unique Benefits at this House:
          within 3 minutes' walk of main public market (Mercado Hidalgo), accessible by car, and within 10 minutes' walk of almost all public performance venues in town.
