Superbly located only a block away from the Jardin on one of San Miguel’s most historic streets, Casa Tom was built on the ruins of an ancient home. As you enter, the living room is on the right and dining room on the left; both have handsomely carved fireplaces. Ahead is a central open, light-filled courtyard with a charming, traditionally tiled fountain on the far wall. The kitchen and a covered seating open onto the open courtyard via wide arches on either side.
Upstairs are two serene bedrooms that face each other from opposite sides of the courtyard, each with en-suite baths. Their large arched windows gracefully echo the arch motif from the main floor. A shady outdoor seating area on this level also overlooks the open courtyard.
The third-floor rooftop terrace has truly spectacular views of historic Centro and the Parroquia as well as an unfettered vista to the west – perfect for watching San Miguel’s famous sunsets. A shaded portion of the terrace makes for all day, anytime dining and elegant entertaining. Casa Tom is a study in sophisticated and informed design, and fortunately for the buyer, most of the well-chosen fine furnishings will come with the house.
Created by a prominent architect for his own use, Casa Tom is a thoughtfully designed home that reflects a deep respect for San Miguel’s historic colonial architecture and a modern sense of symmetry, light and sophisticated comfort.
