About the Property

Townhome, 3 Bedrooms, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

This stunning town home lies on a terraced hillside with a spectacular view of the spires and domes of the charming Colonial town of San Miguel. Step off the cobblestone street and through the gates into a lush and secluded garden paradise, complete with pool and spa. The two upstairs bedrooms each have a private terrace, and the master suite with king size bed has a traditional boveda (domed brick) ceiling. From the master terrace, you will enjoy spectacular views of the town and amazing sunsets over the lake and mountains in the distance.

The guest suite has a queen size bed. With four guests, the downstairs bedroom with two twin day beds doubles as a den. All three bedrooms have full baths (including hair dryers) and dressing areas. The guest and downstairs suites each have a fireplace. The kitchen is fully equipped with gourmet cookware. To add to your enjoyment, the home is decorated in traditional colors, hand woven rugs and Mexican folk art.

Situated in the Cruz de San Jose townhouse complex (14 individually owned homes) the house is in the perfect location. From the Lower Balcones neighborhood, on the edge of Centro Historico, you'll have a short 10 minute walk to the jardin, the bustling hub of the city, yet the neighborhood is quiet and serene. An on-site manager is available to answer any questions, and offer help. Maid service three days per week is included. A cook can be arranged with adequate notice and for an extra charge. Children 13 and older are welcome. Please, no children under 13.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Tom and I live in the San Francisco Bay area, and love it here, but we have always thought about retiring in Mexico to experience a slower life. We always thought about locating in or near beach towns, but after our neighbor returned from a visit to San Miguel in the colonial heartland of Mexico, we decided to take a vacation there to see what all the fuss was about. We packed our bags and with our then 11 year old son went to spend two weeks. To say we fell in love with San Miguel is an understatement. The sky is an amazing blue, the townspeople are warm and welcoming, and the weather is always mild. But best of all San Miguel has been largely untouched by development. In fact the nearly 500 year old center of town has been declared a World Heritage Site. By the time our vacation was over we knew we had found our second home.

Why the Owner Chose Balcones, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
San Miguel is quite simply a magical town whose unique location in the country insured that it would remain unspoiled by development. (It was away from the silver mines and their transportation routes.) The center of town is a gathering place for both tourists and residents alike. Walking mariachi bands serenade, children run and laugh and old men and women sit and read the newspaper or just watch people. Many people prefer to live in the heart of the action, but we found that a short walk up the hill brings both proximity to the center and the peaceful quiet that we craved. The location is perfect!

The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
While you relax and enjoy your vacation, our maid, Ana, will tend to your needs and keep the house clean. Maribel the manager is on duty during the day in case of any urgent needs, and at night, you can rest easy knowing that the night watchman, Francisco is there. Our house is steps away from the pool and hot tub, and the large common area patio. After a full day of sight seeing, gallery hopping, and exploring, you can come home, make a margarita and sit on the terrace outside of your bedroom and watch the always spectacular sunset. You'll enjoy great views of the churches and the lake beyond.
