Centro house description

After strolling San Miguel de Allende’s cobblestone streets, shopping for local arts and crafts, sitting in the Jardin watching the townspeople and eating ice cream, return to the charm and tranquility that is Casa Cantera.

Casa Cantera is a two-bedroom, three and a half bath home located on a quiet cul-de-sac in the Centro Historico, with easy access to all that San Miguel has to offer. Tastefully decorated with a mixture of traditional materials and contemporary art, the house is bright, comfortable and welcoming with an open concept first floor featuring living and dining, a fully-equipped cook’s kitchen and a lush patio complete with a bubbling fountain. A wide stone staircase leads up to two large bedrooms, each with generous closet space, reading areas and en suite full traditionally tiled baths. The third floor features a breezy partially covered terrace with full bath and a cozy studio room. The terrace is the ideal place for cocktails and conversation, al-fresco dining or watching twilight settle over San Miguel while sipping a Margarita. On-site services include housekeeping 3 times a week, Wifi broadband DSL internet, cable television and free long distance calls anywhere in the world on the house Vonage line.

Casa Cantera boasts a perfect location in a safe, family oriented neighborhood where neighbors are welcoming and children safely run and play. For the cook, meat, produce, fresh tortillas and beverages can be purchased within a five minute walk from the house. The historic artisan's market is less than five minutes' walk away and the Fabrica Aurora, known for its antique shops and artists' galleries and studios, is a ten minute walk. Within five to ten minutes flat walking, you can find cafes, restaurants and bars with something for every taste.

                      Leading the list of “must see” places in Mexico, San Miguel de Allende sits at 6300 feet above sea level providing warm sunny days and cool nights nearly all year round. UNESCO World Heritage Site San Miguel is a walking town, well known for its galleries, shops, music, exhibits and festivals. Visitors can study language, art or cooking and, in their spare time hike, play golf, bike, fish, watch wildlife and birds, shop, attend live theater, museums and concerts, visit hot springs, ruins and nearby villages or just relax.

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About: After visiting our cousins in San Miguel for six years, my husband and I finally decided to get a place of our own to share with friends and relax far away from our hectic lives in Brooklyn, New York. I'm an artist and professor, and my husband is in financial services IT, so we love to get away and relax, read, write, and spend hours in conversation with the many friends we've made in the friendly San Miguel community.

                      Why Centro:
                      Aside from the fact that San Miguel de Allende is simply my favorite city in the world, we chose our property because of its welcoming, bright, warm, colorful charm. After visiting homes in other neighborhoods, I realized that Casa Cantera is perfectly located to partake in all that San Miguel has to offer. Less than 5 minutes flat walk puts you in the artisan's market and large produce market. 5 more minutes has you in the Jardin, the center of the historic district, where you can sit on a bench reading the daily paper or watching the comings and goings of San Miguel's many residents and visitors. Dozens of excellent restaurants are within comfortable walking distance and if you get tired, $3 buys you a taxi ride anywhere in the center. Our neighborhood is friendly and family oriented and our terrace is breezy and comfortable day and night, all year round.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      Casa Cantera is decorated with a wide variety of artworks from Mexican, Canadian and American contemporary artists.
