Colonia Independencia house description
Our home is in the colonial city of San Miguel de Allende, considered to be the "jewel of Mexico". Known for it's beautiful light and climate, the city offers a wide array of activities: cultural, artistic, linguistic and culinary for adults and children, as well as a sunny environment for R and R. The house is newly built in the hacienda style with old-world charm and decor. All rooms are spacious with high ceilings, the guest bedroom and casita with beautiful bovedas. Each room has it's own French doors and fireplace allowing for an airy feel in warmer temperatures and a warmth and coziness in cool weather.
The master bedroom is on the first floor with large closets, dressing room and bath, opening on to an enchanting private courtyard garden with in-ground Jacuzzi and fountain. The second floor guest bedroom with its Juliet balcony, has it's own bath, and is connected to a study with flat screen TV, opening on the to large second floor terrace with lovely views of the city and mountains in the distance. The second floor also contains a large laundry with dog bath, and one of two studio/offices with Juliet balcony overlooking the courtyard. Stairs to the roof lead to a wet bar, barbeque area with dining table and chairs for entertaining, sunbathing, or simply enjoying the panoramic views.
A charming self contained casita is across the courtyard with its own kitchenette, bath, flat screen TV, fireplace and Juliet balcony. It is fully equipped and perfect for family members or friends who desire privacy. A large garage beneath the casita allows for secure off street parking.
The spacious kitchen is warm with all new appliances and eat in table. It leads into the open plan living-dining area with a central fireplace and cantera mantle. It is simple but elegant with the old style tejanil ceilings, gracious proportions, oriental carpets, lovely artwork and furnishings, and an intimate feel.
This is a lovely home ideal for family or friends, comfortable for six people. The house sits on a hill across from a park in a safe family-friendly neighborhood. You will feel at home as soon as you enter. It has been designed to provide for privacy but is perfect for both small and larger gatherings. The high ceilings and French doors create an expansive open feeling and the interior design is warm and welcoming.

Home Sweet Home
Home Sweet Home
My husband and I stayed at this fabulous home for 5 months. We absolutely loved the house and the amenities it had to offer. We did not feel like we were living in a rental, no expense was spared, everything in the house is top of the line quality. The kitchen is stocked with anything you will ever need to cook or entertain. There is as much outdoor living space as indoor space, the courtyard has a jacuzzi, patio with fireplace and grill. There is a 2nd level terrace with lounge chairs and the 3rd level has table, chairs, wet bar and BBQ grill for enjoying the sunset and views of the city. The TV room has a nice flat screen TV, great library of books and DVDs. The location is great for views of the city. The bus stops just within steps of the house, it takes you right to Centro. We did not have a car during our stay and we never needed one with the bus coming by every 15 minutes plus there is an abundance of taxis coming by. We used the park every day to run. It had a great area for running laps. Everyone in and around the park is friendly and the park is shut down at 10 pm each night. You can also walk to Centro, it is about a 25 minute walk, which we also enjoyed. The housekeeper and gardener are two of the nicest people we met in San Miguel. They do a great job in keeping the house and courtyard looking fabulous. The thing we will miss the most when we leave San Miguel is this house and the staff.

SIX MONTHS OF COMFORT AND LUXERY
SIX MONTHS OF COMFORT AND LUXERY
We stayed in this home for six months and enjoyed the amenities and the staff. The house is equipped with modern appliances and everything you need to live comfortably. The house was beautifully decorated in the colonial style and all of our guests were very impressed with the layout and furnishings. The inner courtyard with in ground Jacuzzi is beautiful. The home is much larger than the photos show. It is across the street from the neighborhood park, has wonderful views and is very safe. There is a 20 minute down hill walk to Centro, several small grocery stores in the neighborhood and easy access to the loop road around SMA (where the large super markets are). There is also a wonderful little restaurant, Don Felix close by. We would recommend the house to anyone traveling to San Miguel.

Year Purchased: 2009
About the owner: We are recently retired professionals enjoying life both in San Miguel and Massachusetts. We rent the house during the period we are living in the States.
Why the Owner Chose Colonia Independencia:
We met in Mexico 40 years ago and have traveled extensively in this beautiful country. We love the warmth and beauty of the people and the soulful quality of the culture. They are family oriented as we are, there is always music in the air and surprises are around every corner.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our home was designed for comfort, livability, beauty and warmth. We love our neighborhood because it is a wonderful mix of Mexican families and fellow ex-pats. There are always gentle breezes up on this hill, it is quiet and yet we are within a comfortable walk to all that San Miguel has to offer.
