About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms + Library, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 7)
This elegant, yet comfortable, home is located above the hustle and bustle of San Miguel, but not so far as to preclude a leisurely stroll to the central Jardin in 5 to 7 minutes. Laid out around a verdant patio, the home is designed for entertaining, either formally or informally.
Immediately upon entering, one ascends a flight of stairs to a welcoming front room with three couches before a fireplace, high beamed ceilings, and informal dining for six. Beyond the table is a bank of french doors that provide a pleasant view and, when the doors are open, a musical splashing of the fountain in the patio. Off this central room are found a large formal dining room with seating for 8 and a fireplace, a study with books and TV, a guest bath and a well-equipped kitchen. Margarita, the housekeeper/cook, has a way of turning out Mexican breakfasts with specialties that will have you raving for months after your visit.
Up the well-lit stairway, is a door to the patio, and the first of three bedrooms, containing a queen bed, an interesting 'ojo de buey' (bull's eye) window, a fireplace and bathroom with an antique tub and another fireplace and a street door. Up a few more stairs, one finds the second bedroom, done all in white, and featuring a king bed, a bathroom, a fireplace, and a small sitting room (with Internet access), which opens on to a private balcony with a view to the street and the western horizon. The third bedroom, up a few more stairs, is done in yellow with a green tiled bathroom(with bath tub/shower), and a fireplace, a queen bed with mosquito netting, and a small balcony overlooking the patio below.
Up another flight of stairs leads up to the roof garden terrace with table and chairs, potted plants, and a dyamite 360-degree view. The vista features the central cathedral (here called La Parroquia), a jumble of red tiled roofs, houses and greenery to the east, plus a vast view of the lake, rimmed by the Guanajuato mountains and the sunset to the west. The perfect place for a rendezvous of the guests to enjoy a sundowner and to discuss the doings of the day or make plans for an evening on the town.
All rooms are artfully decorated with colorful and comfortable furnishings, wall hangings, statues and paintings. The house covers some 3800 sq. ft. on 4 levels plus roof garden. In the center of the home is a gorgeous flowering patio with lounges, chairs and a coffee table. There is garage and a small bedroom and bath (with washing machine) at the main entry level.
Margarita comes every weekday (M-F) from 9 AM to 2 PM. She will perform extra chores, such as cooking for you in the evenings, if you desire, for extra pay. Margarita also is in charge of the maintenance of the house, and is on call if you need her at other hours. Cruz, the gardener, comes several times a week to tend to the plants in the patio and roof garden. There is 2 TV with basic cable, as well as a small boom box for radio and CDs, and cable internet.
Sorry: no children under 12, no smokers, no pets, Please!
