                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: I have spent winters in San Miguel since I retired from teaching art in New Haven in 1991, rented in various parts of the city until 1998, when I bought a Mexican house and remodeled it into two apartments. I am very involved in theater in San Miguel, have taught drawing and painting here as well. I return to Connecticut because I have a large family (5 children, 12 grandchildren, 7 great-grands)

                          Why the Owner Chose Colonia San Antonio:
                          When I decided to try to find a house to buy in San Miguel I had 5 requirements: 1)walking distance to the center, with no major hills, 2)possibility of a rental apartment, 3)no stairs, for when I got too old for stairs, 4)outside space, 5)studio. I found the house in Colonia San Antonio, a neighborhood I like very much, and converted it to 2 apartments, each of which I have lived in.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          El Centro can get pretty crowed and busy, particularly at holiday time, and I love being able to retreat to a family neighborhood that is more tranquil. I have enjoyed proximity to Weber's tennis courts (clay), to St. Paul's Church, where I sing in the choir, and which hosts Pro Musica concerts and Playreaders of San Miguel twice monthly. There is a small Sunday market nearby, plus local restaurants. Where many homes in San Miguel, a mountain town, have many steps, the upstairs apartment has a wide comfortable stairway from the street entrance with a railing.
