About Margaret Larcade
We fell in love with San Miguel on our honeymoon and returned to study at the Instituto. We returned regularly and John was part of the architecture and planning team for Los Balcones. We are happy that many years later burros still come by our street with their owners carrying wood and garden manure for sale. The fountain at the end of our street seems to be a good resting spot for the burrors and their owners.
Margaret Larcade purchased this House in 1988
Why Margaret Larcade chose Zona Centro
When we first were looking for property, we wanted to be in the el centro area, an easy wish at the time as San Miguel had not grown so very much. We also did not want to go any higher on a street than we could push a wheelchair as our son was born with cerebral palsy. So when people ask us about the walk up 3 blocks, I tell them that up until our son turned 24, we pushed a wheelchair up to the house. My husband, an architect, first looked at the direction of the light and visited the house at different times during the day to see how the light played in the house and garden. The light is wonderful!
What makes this House unique
For us, the benefit is just being there in the heart of San Miguel and in our home which is so visually pleasing to us. Whether we are just sitting around on the black and white tiled entry benches with a geranium on either side having a coffee, or in the garden with our lime tree and flowers intertwined in trees, or up on the roof, we just seem to be happy there. I feel centered. The house also flows with the early morning light to nightfall; being outside in the house is what the house is about. At night, the roof is an incredible place to overlook the sparkle of San Miguel, and the stars. Then we all go into the dining room and living room... all connected space to talk or play Scrabble or other games. Then it feels cozy. The kitchen for Margaritas and leftovers from the usual wonderful lunch prepared by Juana, our cook, is adjacent. We have a wonderful cook who comes with the rental of the house, which is a real vacation from cooking for us and watching her all so many lessons in Mexican cooking. San Miguel is just outside our doors, 5 minutes downhill is el centro with restaurants and just sitting in the Jardin watching San Miguel go by.
