Centro Historico house description

You can have it all! True 18th century charm and 21st century convenience on one of San Miguel’s oldest streets, in a quiet, desirable neighborhood just three blocks from San Miguel’s elegant, festive Jardin. This beautiful home is charming and comfortable, offering bright, colorful interiors, gracious outdoor living, and stunning views. Great for 2, 4, or 6!

The king master bedroom suite has doors leading to a plant-screened terrace, with a king-size bed, a walk-in closet, fireplace, and tiled bath and shower.

The queen master bedroom suite has a garden balcony and a vaulted boveda ceiling, with a queen-size bed, fireplace, and its own walk-in closet, tiled shower, and private studio with vaulted boveda ceiling.

The twins master bedroom suite has twin beds, a walk-in closet, and tiled bath and shower, and its own living area with fireplace and vaulted boveda ceiling.

All bedrooms share an internal stairway to rooftop terraces with extraordinary views of the Parroquia and town, lake, mountains, and sunsets. Lie in the sun on chaisse lounges or sit in shade under the tiled veranda.

You’ll love your choices for relaxation and enjoyment throughout this thoroughly modern home with 18th century walls. In the living room you’ll find overstuffed sofas and chairs, a hand-built fireplace, and thick, warmly colored walls. In the dining room you may gather for meals at a long country table. The brightly tiled kitchen is ready for cooking or for being served.

Relax in the stone patio by a sprinkling tile and stone fountain. Sit outdoors at tile tables or in the cool shade of the outdoor sala with its overstuffed sofas and chairs.

This home is in the best area of town, across the street from the home of one of Mexico's most famous actresses, close to buses and within short walks to everything, only three blocks from the Jardin. There is parking on the street and a supervised parking lot is close by. The neighborhood has its own wonderful little bar around the corner, the Fat Mermaid, recently featured as not-to-be-missed in the New York Times.

Maria Louisa, the housekeeper, comes to clean, do laundry and change the linens three days a week. We can arrange for a cook by the day for a modest extra fee. The property is also professionally managed by an English speaking manager who is always on call in case you have any problems.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2004

                      About the owner: We three 'ran away from home' to San Miguel de Allende for a six month 'sabbatical' in 2004. We picked San Miguel for its beauty, history, and vibrant arts community, and because it reminded Stephanie of the neighborhood in which she grew up - San Angel, in Mexico City. The house location is Montes de Oca 14 in Historic Centro.

                      Why the Owner Chose Centro Historico:
                      Building in Mexico is so magical. The house is like a work of art to us that we get to walk through and live in! San Miguel de Allende is a UNESCO World Heritage site full of beauty and history. We walk everywhere, and love our property's privacy, quiet, and stunning views.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The house itself is a sweet place to enjoy any time, and it changes through the day as the light and temperatures change. We love walking to the Jardin in the evening to join in the 'paseo,' and visiting the nearby Parque Juarez. Walking the streets, and visiting the town's many shop and restaurants, is great fun. We love the vibrant cultural life of San Miguel. And visits to the Charco, the botanic garden, and the hot springs, are also treat!
