Straight out of an architectural or travel magazine, words like stunning and gorgeous come to mind when viewing this home. Upon entering, the front garden will take your breath away and give you a taste of what is to come. It is spacious, lush, impeccably manicured and includes huge stone walls, colonial arches, a majestic fountain, pond, and fruit trees.
Other areas for outdoor entertaining are plentiful. The large loggia (outdoor covered patio) opens out into the garden and includes a bar and fireplace with chimney. The expansive rooftop terrace hosts multiple seating areas, views to the surrounding mountains as well as a complete kitchen with pizza oven, smoker, grill and refrigerator. And of course, you’ll enjoy lounging beside the pool, the gem around which the ground floor courtyard is built.
Inside, the living room and adjacent dining area are nothing short of grand and showcase an unusually long and beautiful boveda and rock wall. The kitchen is also home to a large boveda, commercial grade appliances and work areas, colorful talavera tile and a warm, old Mexico feel. All overlook the garden and flow directly into the loggia. Just off the kitchen is a multipurpose room which is currently being used as a spacious pantry and office.
The master suite, located on the ground floor and overlooking the pool and garden, is a work of art, particularly the bathroom. It features another oblong boveda, rock wall and spa-like tub with surrounding plants and is adjacent to a large dressing room.
The other two bedrooms on the ground floor include their own bath, each featuring a unique style but still congruent with the rest of the house. Upstairs houses the casita, which has a private entrance, terrace, sitting area, office nicho, tejamanil (woven wood) ceilings and wood floors.
Of course, the attention to detail and use of fine finishes is evident throughout this home. Open wood beams, cantera fireplaces and aged colonial style doors abound, as does natural light. Other amenities include a wine closet and tasting area just off the dining area, double car garage with full laundry area and a pressured, purified water system.
Finally, you’ll enjoy this well-appointed home in peace and tranquility, as this gated community in the hills above Centro maintains high security.
