The home, which sits upon a 2,649 square meter (28,514 square feet) lot, was built using Tuscan architecture style, combining both modern and classical elements that employ fine Italian building materials such as custom-crafted natural stone, terra cotta floor, wood beams and clay roof tiles which evoke an authentic Old World European sentiment.
Upon entering its elegant stone gates, you will be immediately struck by the handsomely groomed landscapes, separated by wide and charming cobblestone streets, bordered by tree-lined green areas, offering lovely 360° views of the surrounding countryside, which are framed by the majestic “Picachos” mountain range in the background.
Currently, only a half-a-dozen homes are spread about the vast property, which already features an events hall as well as a fully functioning equestrian center, ideal for dressage exhibition and competition, and which will soon feature a gourmet bistro, a high-end commercial area and working vineyards.
As you enter the home through the intricately hand-carved wooden door, you will be immediately taken aback by the elegant living room, with its vaulted wooden ceilings, wrought iron windows and central marble fireplace. A large horizontal window offers panoramic views of the outdoor logia, which is spacious enough to wine and dine a large party of guests and overlooks the swimming pool and the upper garden. On the other side of the fireplace there is a formal dining room, which connects to a full kitchen, large enough to seat a family for breakfast.
On the south side of the first floor, you will find the first main bedroom with its en suite bath including a bathtub, large closets and French doors, which lend access to a patio which connects to the upper garden. On the north side of the first floor, you will find the library/study with its en suite bath and French doors, which lend access to a patio which also connects to the upper garden.
Climbing up the spiral stone staircase on the south wing of the house, you will find the second main bedroom, with its en suite bath including a bathtub, large closets and access to a terrace with views of the garden below. Climbing up the spiral stone staircase on the north wing of the house, you will find the master bedroom, with its marble fireplace, enormous window, terrace with views of the garden below and a long hallway which leads to the walk-in closet and en suite bath.
The upper garden features a swimming pool surrounded by abundant lush vegetation, including mature palm and cypress trees. The lower garden features an ample lawn, perfect for children’s activities and sports, as well as a small turtle pond.
For extended stays, there is a separate guest bedroom with large closets and en suite bath, as well as two additional bedrooms which can be used as maid’s quarters, each with en suite bath. The driveway runs the entire length of the property and is large enough to accommodate several vehicles. The entire property exudes a sense of family, elegance, tranquility, privacy and privilege, which should never be taken for granted.
This exclusive property is located at “La Loma,” a 30 hectare (74 acre) ranch that is situated less than five kilometers (three miles) from the Historic Center of San Miguel de Allende, along the “Golden Corridor,” which leads to the neighboring city of Dolores Hidalgo.
