The striking façade of hand-cut, white stone and boldly executed wrought iron hints at what awaits within this superbly constructed, four-bedroom residence in one of San Miguel de Allende’s most desirable neighborhoods. The dramatic vaulted entrance-foyer opens onto an elegantly landscaped front-patio paved in adoquin cantera. Masterfully crafted architectural elements and decorative details throughout this premier property create a contemporary design of timeless beauty.
Superbly carved, solid alder wood cabinetry by master craftsman Mañuel Padron is especially notable in the professional-grade kitchen with extensive granite counters, gathering and dining areas, and in a Gothic-motif, bar with a wine fridge. Lavish appointments throughout this well planned home include vaulted (bóveda) and handkerchief ceilings, massive corbeled beams, expertly carved stonework, decorative painting, state of the art electronics and Murano glass lighting fixtures in a spacious design with natural light and glimpses of the gardens in every room.
A two-level, rooftop terrace crowns this extraordinary residence with sweeping views of historic San Miguel, fully irrigated raised-bed gardens, a green house, solar panels providing 90% of the home´s energy needs, and the very best in self-sustainable lifestyles.
