Casa Garambullos in an untouched natural paradise
This property is located in an untouched natural paradise only eighteen kilometers from San Miguel de Allende. It is a short two-kilometer distance from Los Rodríguez and twenty kilometers from the exit to San Luis Potosí/Carretera México DF (Doctor Mora exit).
It encompasses a virgin area of 3.15 hectares with a 360-degree view which provides a sense of peace and security, given that the perimeter is fenced in its entirety.
The design was made by two celebrated French landscape architects, Eric Ossart and Arnaud Maurières.
On the hillside, before a breathtaking landscape, lies the house, built in a contemporary style that evokes the architecture of renowned Mexican architect Luis Barragan. The property became accessible through a natural meadow which has been made into a garden by the existence of two terraces and stone stairs. The access by car is facilitated by a traditional shingle-filled path that leads up to the garage, and into the entrance of the main house.
The main façade, built with volcanic stone, looks into the east, towards the verdure-populated hills. Throughout the entirety of the property lies an extended terrace with a thirty-meter pool which function as this prolongated balcony, allowing for the enjoyment of the scenery.
The entrance, facing south, shares a first building with two bedrooms, a dressing room, office space, a bathroom, and a maintenance room.
The main body of the house is straightforward and is composed of unusual volumes. The ample living room rests under a five-meter roof: its composition consists of abundant space surrounded by a charming fireplace dominated by a silk, Central Asian embroidery and by African stairs; the dining room is built with dark volcanic stone and is drawn out as a sculpture in the center of the room; the kitchen stands out for its functionality and opens the space out into a patio with an exterior worktop with leads into a laundry room.
The portico is utilized mainly as a dining room. It is the means to justify the display of four great beberebe antique doors; the space provides the commodity of an extended bench and a single-pieced wooden table capable of receiving a dozen guests.
The hallway, found between a stone wall and ample shelves, presents a rural Mediterranean and Mexican ceramics collection and follows the eastern façade that leads into a bathroom/dressing room built with dark quarry. There, a collection of oriental brass and Anatolian kilims decorate the wall and provide a sense of eastern charm reminiscent of the hammams. At the end of the hallway, the master bedroom is benefited by a similar decoration and opens out into a private terrace that is lighted by the morning sun. In this great space, ornamented by a fireplace and bookshelf, lie thick wool carpets which invite you to languish.
Each room is equipped with a Rinai gas heater or a fireplace. The climate of San Miguel de Allende, along with the natural ventilation provided by the layout of the buildings cover the necessity of any artificial cooling system. The pool is heated with a solar heating system that covers the roof of the main building of the house. Hot water is provided through a gas heater. The house has a laundry room with a washing machine; it may also function as a storage room.
