Guadiana house description

Our home, Villa Colibri, is a spacious and artistic colonial home located in the quiet neighborhood of Guadiana just 15 minutes walk from downtown. We are 5 minutes from the wonderful Juarez Park and the Instituto Allende Art and Language School where you can learn to paint and speak Spanish at your leisure. Finally, our home is close to food markets, a gym, tennis courts, golf, and internet café.

Our home was decorated by a local interior designer and it offers the ambiance of Mexico, while being quiet, large, and comfortable. We have two master bedrooms each with a full bath, walk-in closet, and fireplace. There is also a full kitchen with the option of having catering. The rooftop terrace offers fine views of the main church of San Miguel and sunsets.

The large and open living room and dining room have high boveda ceilings and wrought iron chandeliers. Both look out to the lovely, private, bi-level garden is which is totally enclosed with flowers, a fountain, patio furniture, barbeque, and hammock (perfect for a siesta).

We have three cable televisions, high-speed internet, and free calls to the US/Canada with a US phone number. Our home is serviced by our gardener six days per week and maid two times per week. Our property is listed with Hacienda for tax purposes.

                  Historical San Miguel de Allende is the birthplace of the Mexican fight for independence. It has classic Spanish colonial architecture and an outstanding mountain climate. San Miguel is known for art, theater, music, great food of all varieties, and the most friendly people in Mexico!


                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: We are a retired professional couple who live in Lake Tahoe, CA. We are actively involved in our community, volunteering and participating in local events. We enjoy continuing this lifestyle in San Miguel by taking art and language courses, attending music and live theater events, and the wide variety of cultural festivities that take place often in San Miguel. We love nature and gardening, as is evident in our garden at Villa Colibri. We would love to share our home with you!

                  Why the Owner Chose Guadiana:
                  We chose San Miguel de Allende because of its charm, warm people, and beautiful colonial setting. There is an abundance of art, music, theater, and wonderful restaurants to enjoy while relaxing in our beautiful home.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Our property is unique because it is located in a quiet, residential area yet is a short and beautiful walk to downtown through the park (Parque Juarez). It has a lovely and private garden with a fountain for a relaxing atmosphere. Finally, we love the tasteful and authentic Mexican decorations throughout our home.
