Year Purchased: 2005
About: We are a Mexican/Italian couple who travel throughout the world, with homes in San Francisco, Venice & Northern Italy, and in lovely Guanajuato! We travel often with our 2 gorgeous labrador retrievers, Scooby and Angelica..
Why Zona Centro, Guanajuato, Gto., Mexico:
We love Guanajuato for its European style charm and rich Mexican Culture, and we are half-way home here! The home dates to 1792 and is one of the few standing residential dwellings built in the colonial times: most other colonial building in the city are commercial or official buildings. The original house gave us the opportunity to create something unique. The whole house has been restored to its original splendor using hand made furniture and local art. We selected this house after a search that lasted 10 years because it is the only house in the centro which has multiple open spaces: the patio is divided in two: the pool are and the fireplace area, the second floor has three terraces (one is a gigantic service terrace fir hanging clothes and a continuation of the rooftop garden ) aand a spacious veranda where we entertain our guests with stunning views . All other houses in the centro offer only sun baked rooftops, our patio is 100% private and offers the opportunity of spending 100% of the time outside
The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love to soak in our courtyard pool in the evenings, cook and enjoy gourmet meals in our fabulous kitchen, relax on our roof-top terrace, explore local art exhibits, and dine occasionally in cozy Guanajuato restaurants so close to Casa del Limon.
