About Janan MacDonald
We are a family of four that decided to flee Chicago for a "one year" experiment in San Miguel de Allende. That was in 2009! We still spend a fair amount of time in Chicago, but we really consider San Miguel home at this point. There is nothing like the blue skies, colorful streets, and amazingly friendly people here. It is always an absolute pleasure to be here.
Janan MacDonald purchased this House in 2011
Why Janan MacDonald chose Zona Centro
After a few years here in San Miguel, we finally decided to take the plunge and build a home here. We found the perfect architect for us, who was able to make a home that works with the climate and surroundings as best as possible. We designed and orientated the home in order to take advantage of passive solar, wind patterns, and even taking into consideration the neighboring home styles. We also incorporated a water reclamation system and solar panels for both electricity and hot water. Our goal was to make a beautiful and comfortable house with a minimal impact on the earth and resources. We were thrilled to find this particular lot because, in our opinion, it is the perfect location for getting into the center of town, as well as enjoying some tranquility. We also have an "arroyo" (stream) that runs through the front of the property. This can be a real sight to behold during the big downpours of the rainy season - literally becoming a rushing river. In the dry season, it is just a stone ravine, separating a small garden at the front of the property.
What makes this House unique
Our home offers so many places to relax, enjoy, depending on what you are feeling. You can be shooting baskets on the small court in the front, reading on the roof top, swimming in the pool, or just dozing off on a chaise lounge. There are public and private spaces - something for everyone, and every mood.
