Colonial-style home in the four hundred year old town of San Miguel de Allende. It is located within the Centro Historico, just seven blocks from the center of town. Because the house is built on the side of a hill, it is spread over three levels.
All areas of the house open onto patios or terraces.
The property's entrance from the street is on the middle level which includes a small entry patio, stone fountain and a large tile mural of the towns most significant and memorable building, the Parroquia church. Also, a small stairway leads to a bedroom from this patio.
The entrance to the main part of the house is on the upper level, which opens to an entry hall with tiled ceiling and a half-bath. Beyond is a large living room and outdoor terrace. From the living room, a short hallway leads to the formal dining room. These rooms have tile wainscots and also stone or stucco fireplaces. Behind the dining room is the kitchen, and laundry.
The kitchen is fully equipped with double built-in gas ovens, a gas cooktop, dishwasher a large copper sink and a small copper prep sink. Also there are plenty of cookbooks both English and bilingual, dishes, glassware and linens to set an attractive table.
On the lower level are three more bedrooms, two with king size beds and one with a queen bed.
Two of the bedrooms are located on either side of a patio, and one looks out over the garden.
All bedrooms have en suite baths, fireplaces, and ceiling fans. Air conditioning is not needed in San Miguel. The altitude of approximately 6,500 feet keeps this sunny town cool and comfortable.
