Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: After traveling the world and living in many countries - Canada, England, France, Italy, India and Brazil, - I discovered the Unesco World Heritage town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico in 2006 . It was an easy decision to unpack my suitcases and settle down. I could never go back to live in my native Canada and the cold winters. The Spanish colonial architecture delights my eyes as I walk the cobblestone streets. The sun shines daily and the climate suits me to a T. There is an incredible expat community in this town, many are travelers like myself, artists and writers. San Miguel offers a banquet of cultural activities, live theater, music festivals and art openings. And we have one of the largest English libraries in Latin America. As an avid reader this is a big bonus for me. It took two years to convert my old adobe house with large garden into a guest house with, my own home, a two bedroom villa (181940), a one bedroom casita (181896)and a studio apartment. Renovating and decorating is my passion. The main house, which is my home, is an old adobe hacienda style house. The villa is newly constructed using part of an old construction in the garden and the casita has been converted from a wing of the original house.

Why the Owner Chose Zona Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
The property's great location and the challenge of rescuing an old neglected place and making it beautiful motivated me to buy. Located in the historic center of town where I wanted to make my own home, and it had potential to renovate part of the old historic construction into comfortable rental accommodations Location, Location, Location. Everything within a few minutes walk away. Yet the large garden in the historical center provides a quiet respite from the busy town.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Right in the historical heart of San Miguel, you can be in the Jardin, the main square, in a few minutes. There is no need to have a car since everything is close by. Walk the cobblestone streets, lined with flowers on the way to your favorite restaurant. Magic happens here on a daily basis, and at Casa Mandu you are right in the center of it all, but our garden oasis is the perfect place to relax with a book or just sit and watch the butterflies and hummingbirds flit from flower to flower.
