Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Diane Varney and Rob Lerner have designed and built 3 artfully functional homes in Mexico. They have complementary skills with Diane's whimsical, colorful style and attention to finishes, and Rob's focus on eco-functionality and space utilization.

Why the Owner Chose Colonia Guadalupe, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
We are delighted to finally have a home base in San Miguel de Allende. It captivated us on our first visit in 2001 and is still captivating us now. This property was a wreck and now has everything new except a few original walls and ceilings. It's great because it is only a few blocks from Via Organica (with store and restaurant), plus it's only a 12 minute flat walk to the jardin. The neighborhood has been designated as the Arts District and has over 25 murals to discover.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
We created our dream home and property and it is unique in all San Miguel. It is tasteful, original and functional.
