About our home

Our three year old home comprises 3000 square feet of well planned, comfortable living space and is a pleasant walk from the centre of the city where we enjoy a quiet retreat from the hustle and bustle of San Miguel de Allende. We are close to the Fabrica Aurora, a collection of beautiful stores and art galleries, and we have a stunning view of the parrochia from our kitchen and an even better view from our terrace upstairs. We are also a five minute walk from the new Agua Live Spa Hotel which caters to the most discerning clients but is happy to welcome folks like us for dinner or drinks and the use of their luxurious spa. The main floor of our house has a large master bedroom, two and a half bathrooms, living room, dining room, kitchen, den, and patio. This makes the house ideal for those people who have difficulty with stairs. On the second floor there is another bedroom, large bathroom, sunroom, and outdoor terrace. We have a garage where there are laundry facilities and there is a small garden area leading into the house. There is a water purification system throughout. The neighbourhood is called Obraje and is the new "area to be" in San Miguel. The house is beautifully furnished with many antiques and we have an extensive art collection. There is no cable television because we choose to think for ourselves, although we do have a large library and a huge movie collection. We prefer to limit our guests to two people but are open to discussion on this point. Our cleaning woman comes once a week and has worked for us for many years. We love our home because it is beautiful and functional, warm in winter, cool in summer, and always full of natural light.
