Open the door to CASA20 and enter into your private spa-like home away from home - you are greeted by the sound of a gentle waterfall, the greenery of giant palms, solid stone underfoot and brilliant blue skies above.
THE FIRST FLOOR - A traditional Mexican kitchen with rustic, casual dining table. Seating for 8. Take a dip in the heated plunge pool - day or night the experience is the ultimate in relaxation - find yourself surrounded by palms, illuminated by candlelight & reflected in antiqued glass. You will probably take a number of photos here! Also, on this main floor...BEDROOM #1 with ensuite is both private and quiet. Interior iron doors open to reveal the Mesquite tree that winds its way through the house making this bedroom a very special retreat. Queen size bed.
THE SECOND FLOOR - The LIVING ROOM is both comfortable and stylish. A gas fireplace for cooler nights, flat screen tv & comfy sofa make this Sala the perfect spot to unwind. Doors open to the atrium to reveal an abundance of flowers and plants surrounding the impressive stone columns and mesquite beams. BEDROOM #2 has screened windows which wrap themselves around the 'tree within'. This suite has Queen bed & flat screen tv. Full ensuite with *bath/shower combination...
*Uniquely, two of the three full bathrooms in this casa have grand showers that have also been designed to function as bathtubs ...water cascades down the stone steps and now a bath has been drawn!
(In addition, there is also a powder room @ the first floor entry - for a total of 3.5 bathrooms)
ANOTHER SPOT TO RELAX ON THE SECOND - A lovely, bright room with both sofa and a small desk/work surface. This second Sala has large mirror & iron doors that open to reveal the sky and terrace above. Located at the front of the house with views along the Callejon and to the neighbouring casas. This room also has a full bathroom.
DOWN BELOW - Casa also has a basement which contains the 'works' of the house.....heaters, water purification system, laundry, water softener and storage.
THE ROOF TERRACE @ CASA20 - Early morning, the air is crisp and the sky is bright... a perfect spot to enjoy the beginning of your day. A beautiful variety of birds are entertainingly active! Here, you will find the perfect spot to lose yourself in a favourite book. 'THE TENT' is a covered seating area with loads of comfortable pillows & protection from the sun. This is also the place to enjoy cocktails while marvelling at the spectacular sunset and view. And, if the season is right & you should run short on lime...simply pick your fresh fruit from one of two trees.
An abundance of plants, cactus and flowers delight the senses - often drawing interest from curious hummingbirds!
Dining for 6 is an option on this very private Terrace.
COOL or COZY ? Solid stone floors and running water at CASA20 will help you keep your cool during hot San Miguel days. Need to warm up ? ...casa has radiant heating throughout to warm the stone floors and a gas fireplace in the second floor living room.
DETAIL & DESIGN @ CASA20 is unique and thoughtful - natural light drifts down and through the house by way of multiple skylights and shafts. The craftsmanship by talented Mexican artisans is unquestionably brilliant - from the hand carved doors and beams to the custom designed solid stone columns and planters.
WHERE? CASA20 is conveniently located on a charming, cobblestone laneway - the flavour of San Miguel is all around. Although this lane is closed to through- traffic, cars and cabs are able to pull right up to the front door .
A peaceful and quiet Callejon ....just a few minutes away from El Jardin & La Parroquia
