About the Property

From all locations in and outdoors you will enjoy the view of the rooftops, the treetops, and the spires of the local cathedrals which are famous and close by.
The location is on a quiet picturesque walkway half a block from the main street where you will find wonderful shops. restaurants, The Instituto (with classes galore) and Parque Juarez all within a two block walk. Clay tennis courts are five minutes away. Golf course a two mile taxi ride.

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: I am an interior designer/magazine editor and worked in NYC for 25 years. I moved to CT in order to have time and space to paint. I moved to SMA in 2007 to put it all together in my gallery which has my paintings and my custom furniture. I started with the gallery and the house next door. I have always designed every aspect of the place which was an interesting challenge in Mexico. I recently decided to go 'up' to get the light and views so divided the property and built the house above the gallery and the guest quarters above that.
Why the Owner Chose Centro Historico, San Miguel de Allende, Gto., Mexico:
When I bought this property it was a vacant lot. I liked the location though admittedly it is better for living than for the gallery since it is a bit off the beaten path. The first level is a gallery and studio. The gallery (named the Arroyo Gallery) contains my original paintings, custom furniture and some clothing. My house is the second level and this unit is the third. The light and views improve as you go further up. It has everything I need all in one space and it is an extremely pleasant place to live! The area is quiet since it is on a walkway. The view goes to the churches with mainly trees between here and there. The walkway itself is now called the 'Pasada de la Paz' or 'The walkway of peace.' and has gardens, murals, mosaics, etc all along it. but half a block away past this walkway is the major street with taxis, restaurants and shops. The center of town is four blocks away. The Instituto is a block in the other direction. IT's all here and you don't need to drive.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
It is so close to everything but it is quiet. This is a noisy town with fireworks, church bells, traffic, etc. It is not bad here. I get the sound of many singing birds in the early morning. I do get the church bells but they are not close enough to be a bother. They are lovely. The fireworks can be seen but are rarely close enough to be considered noisy. Again, being by an open area, many hot air balloons go overhead in the early morning. You can hear their 'whoosh' and go outside and look up into them. Since there are only trees between here and the churches, there is no need for curtains. Privacy is not an issue. It is unusual to get a private view and quiet while being close to everything. With the windows and skylights it does get morning light which I personally adore. (I do provide eyeshades for those who don't love it or have the occasional late night out and want to avoid it the next day.) Lifepath, a wellness center, is next door and provides health services and classes. The only noise from there is an occasional 'ohmmmmm' from the yoga instructor.
