About this listing
This location is the best! Quiet and lovely...a private cul-de-sac...no steep hills to climb, an easy short walk to the Jardin, the Instituto, the Rosewood Hotel, and a wide choice of international restaurants on the Ancha.
Architect designed spacious home in premier Guadiana neighborhood - sited in a quiet private cul-de-sac, this 3BR 3.5 bath home was built with comfort and sunlight in mind. It is stylishly decorated and art filled. In the LR, comfortable seating faces a gas fireplace and paintings and crafts by Mexican artisans contribute to the casually sophisticated scene. There is a separate dining room which seats 8 around a custom mesquite table and an eat-in kitchen with classic talavera tiles. Conveniently, there are no stairs to the serene ground floor king master BR and attached bath. From the master BR you will look out arched windows onto a patio with lush plantings and a fountain. Queen and twin bedrooms, both en suite, are upstairs.
The house sleeps a maximum of 6. The upper roof terrace offers all the sun one could want, with lounge chairs as well as an umbrella table and chairs. My housekeeper and gardener maintain my home and plantings. Internet and WIFI keep you connected. There is secure off-street parking.
The central historic district, Parque Juarez and the Instituto Allende are only a stroll away, as are diverse ethnic restaurants and charming shops. Indulge yourself in San Miguel's lively cultural scene - art openings, plays, concerts, classes and workshops in painting, poetry, sculpting, self awareness...spend time at yoga, brush up on your Spanish, play golf or tennis nearby. For the young at heart, try four wheeling, rappelling, the thermal springs or hot-air ballooning. Or simply relax!
Other Things to Note

The trees and flowers are maintained by my gardener and my maid cleans twice a week.

There is a washer/dryer and roof clothesline (which I love to use).
There is high speed WIFI.
Garbage is tied in plastic bags and placed in the garage area shed for pick-up three times a week..
Although I stayed only one night in your lovely casa, it exceeded your description in every way. It was tastefully furnished, very comfortable in every way, on a quiet cup de sac yet in easy walking distance of the central plaza. I only wish that you were there as I would love to meet the woman who created such a jewel. Perhaps we can meet States side as we both live in Connecticut. I would love to come for a longer stay when my busy schedule permits.
