Property description

Casa Buena Ventura is an awe-inspiring Pedro Urquiza designed home just a few short blocks from the Jardin. Walk to virtually all of San Miguel’s wonderful restaurants, shops, bakeries and food markets.

As you enter the property, you will encounter the lovely landscaped garden highlighted by a magnificent papaya tree and calming fountain. You enter the house via the indoor/outdoor loggia, where you can open the large glass doors overlooking the garden to enjoy the San Miguel weather or close them and start a cozy fire in the winter.

Entering the living room, you will be enthralled by the beautifully stenciled 30 foot church-like ceilings and arches. The mirrored fireplace and curved staircase to the second level complete the sense of grandeur found nowhere else in San Miguel. The dining area flows smoothly from the living area and seats eight comfortably at its custom glass and cantera table. It opens to the spacious fully tiled colonial-style kitchen with copper sink and accents, outfitted with a custom mesquite island and everything a cook could want, including colonial style burners, modern refrigerator and wall ovens, and Calphalon cookware.

Upstairs, the catwalk leads you to two guest bedrooms having, respectively, an iron queen-sized draped canopy bed and an iron king-sized bed. They share a lovely bath with a tiled shower and a large ocular window for light. In addition, each guest bedroom has its own hand-carved cantera sink and mirror for the convenience of the guests. A few steps down the catwalk, just outside the master suite, is an open loft office area overlooking the living room below. The master suite features a sumptuous iron king-sized canopy bed, a custom mirrored dressing table, and a large gas fireplace providing comfort and ambiance. The master suite is completed by a large closet with built-in dressers and a large tiled double-sink bathroom with spectacular mountain views. Each of the three bedrooms features comfortable mattresses, heated mattress pads, and premium down duvets and bed linens and opens to a balcony overlooking the garden.

The rooftop sala and lounging areas provide a magnificent view of the western panorama of San Miguel and the Guanajuato Mountains, providing the perfect place for curling up with a good book or enjoying a margarita while watching the sun set. To the east is the top of the Parroquia, where fireworks displays often light the sky.

Casa Buena Ventura provides maid, cooking and gardening services three days a week and is the perfect choice for visitors to San Miguel who want a unique experience to remember for a lifetime.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My wife is a lawyer in a large Texas based firm. I am a bit of an entrepreneur and sometime inventor. We both love to travel.

Why the Owner Chose Zona Centro, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
My wife and I first came to San Miguel fifteen years ago and have been coming down from Austin every year since. We share time between our two homes. Austin for work, family and friends and San Miguel to escape from them...and the hot Texas summers.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa Buena Ventura is an easy five minute walk to the Jardin and the many festivals that take place in San Miguel. Restaurants and shops are literally around the corner. The thirty foot ceilings provide the grandeur for parties while the loggia overlooking the beautiful garden is the place to relax.
