About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Perhaps best said -- this is 'our house'--we are here two to three months in the winter, so we have it fixed to suit full-time living, not a skimpy rental. We are happy to share it with others who find it suitable. Our management company (English speakers) is located one block away, and available by phone.

The house is safely located on a main, lighted street, with the typical Mexican 'high wall' surrounding. Entrance from the street takes you through a covered patio to the living level--living room, kitchen, dining area. Down a flight of steps to the two bedrooms, each with a connected bath, and each with a large window looking onto the lower flowered patio. Up a flight of steps from the living level to the roof patio, partially covered for shade and sun, with half-bath and clothes washing machine, and view of churches in Centro.

Inside and out, the house is tastefully painted and decorated, colorful but not gaudy, good lighting in all rooms, ceiling fans in bedrooms and living room and covered patio, gas heater on living level and in both bedrooms. Kitchen is fully furnished--full-size refrigerator and stove, coffee maker, toaster oven, microwave, lots of dishes, pots and pans, and cutlery.

A maid, Marcela, comes three times a week to clean and do the house laundry. She is totally honest and conscientious, and speaks English. She took over in 2013 from her mother who was with us since 1998. If personal laundry or ironing is desired, you can arrange payment with her. She does not cook for us, but might be available. You will find her conscientious and approachable -- she likes to practice her English! And will help you with your Spanish.

Year Purchased: 1998

About: Barbara and I first came to San Miguel for a week in 1987, returned for two months after I retired in 1993, and have been coming back each year, usually the winter months, ever since. We have a lot of family at home -- 6 grandkids within driving range -- and we're active in our church and with friends, otherwise we might be coming here more often.

Why Zona Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
We bought so we would have a good location in San Miguel. We rented for several years, but found it getting more difficult to be as close-in as we liked so we could take advantage of all the offerings available. The house is easy to maintain, and has responded to our efforts to make it better -- we've added a covered patio in front, made the roof into an outdoor living space, and re-did the interior in colors and photos and flooring that gets 'oohs' and 'ahhs' from visitors.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We are one block from the street Ancha San Antonio where the Instituto Allende is located, offering art and language classes and cultural events. There are restaurants around here, but the easy walk into town will get you to many more excellent restaurants. While we are here, Barbara paints, I write, get into theatre stuff, and study Spanish. When we go out, we walk or take a taxi. Taxis are plentiful and cheap. And with the clear rich blue San Miguel sky overhead, it's pretty great to be here.
