Full Bath: 2
Tucked away in the heart of the historic center, Casa Colonial is one of San Miguel de Allende’s best-kept secrets. La Fuente is an exclusive oasis with a handful of luxury homes reminiscent of an intimate village. Imagine the grandeur of Rosewood residences without the hefty price tag. Just a brisk, flat two-block walk and you're at the iconic Parroquia, while Parque Juarez is a mere 5-minute stroll away, and a myriad of top galleries and restaurants are right on your doorstep. Yet, despite this central location, Casa Colonial promises undisturbed serenity. This is largely due to the residence being tucked away from the bustling main streets. Casa Colonial is not just a home but an artisanal masterpiece, crafted in 2008 by the acclaimed Mexican architect Pedro Antonio Urquiza. His signature touch, deeply rooted in Spanish Colonial design, draws inspiration from the iconic structures of historic Mexican churches and buildings. This architectural brilliance, a testament to Urquiza's renowned craftsmanship, infuses Casa Colonial with unparalleled luxury and uniqueness, setting it apart in value and distinction. Imagine coming home from a day of shopping and using the private back entrance, steps away from your own covered parking spot. Once inside, you're greeted by a sun-drenched patio adorned with a water fountain, crowned by a carved lion's head. Picture mornings here, with a cup of coffee in hand, or evenings with a book and the tranquil sounds of water. Two French doors beckon; one opens to a lavish master suite, complete with an en-suite bathroom, tastefully decorated with a tiled bathtub, separate shower, and gas fireplace. The other introduces you to a spacious second guest bedroom or perhaps your new studio, equipped with a large walk-in closet and yet another gas fireplace. The ground floor also hosts a half bathroom and plenty of storage closets. As you ascend the winding staircase to the first floor, you’re warmly welcomed to the heart of Casa Colonial, a stunning panorama of living, dining, and kitchen spaces. The grand living room is a literal work of art. From the hand-painted handkerchief boveda double ceiling design to the regal Spanish colonial cantera fireplace, inspired by Pedro Urquiza's genius, you will be left gazing upwards in awe. Off the living room, a sun terrace invites alfresco dinners against the lush backdrop of San Miguel. This unit is arguably the most stunning home in the complex, being the only one with unobstructed terrace views to an incredible lush garden full of cacti, mature Pirul and Jacaranda trees, climbing bougainvillea, and trumpet flowers, as well as the most incredible rubber tree. Adjacently, the dining room glows with natural light and features wooden beams, a cantera gas fireplace, its own private balcony, and steps down to the ground-floor patio. The kitchen is spacious, boasts all modern amenities, including a reverse osmosis system, and offers plenty of storage and natural light thanks to the large window looking out from the kitchen onto garden views. A spacious utility room is just off the kitchen, home to a new top-notch washer and dryer. Ascending to the second floor, you'll discover a guest suite that's the very embodiment of luxury, serenity, and privacy. Skylights paint the room with natural luminescence, and like the master suite below, this haven offers a bathtub, a separate shower, and a warming gas fireplace. Climb a few more steps and prepare to have your breath taken away. The extensive rooftop gifts you with 360-degree vistas: the Centro Historico, the majestic mountain ranges, and San Miguel landmarks like La Parroquia and Parque Juarez. And those carved cantera canons? They’re more than just design elements; they’re functional water drains, another unique Pedro Urquiza design feature inspired by Mexico City's Presidential Palace. Intricately woven into Casa Colonial's DNA are the complex's amenities. Flooded with natural light and surrounded by perfectly manicured gardens and Spanish colonial designs, the complex offers a heated pool, jacuzzi, club house and allocated private parking. Convenience meets luxury.
