Behind a historic facade hides one of San Miguel’s true treasures: Casa Histórica. This is a masterfully restored colonial home boasting charm, elegance and comfort. All electrical and plumbing systems are new and were installed when this property was restored in 2017.
Stunning Gothic style historic arches mark the entrance to this very special property. Because they are pointed, they have the charm of both old Mexico as well as old Morocco. The entry passageway has original “San Miguelito” stone pavers from the 1800’s.
Upon entry into the main house, the height of the ceilings, mosaic floors, stone and brick doorways, and tasteful light fixtures are all reminiscent of a luxury villa with historic colonial accents.
To the left of the foyer, the living and dining areas are designed for comfort and entertaining. The natural light, high ceilings and tasteful decor are perfect areas for you and your guests. A beautifully tiled powder room complete the space.
The kitchen, located to the right of the foyer, was designed with both functionality and beauty in mind. A cozy breakfast area framed by a stunning stone arch, is the perfect place for morning coffee and informal meals with friends. Here you can see the thickness of the walls which transmit their history. Modern amenities and new G.E. appliances have been installed here, including a gas fireplace for chilly mornings.
The staircase to the second level, beautifully accented with Sevilla style tiles, leads to a beautiful light-filled corridor with a magnificent cantera stone- carved window, which evokes the Moroccan flair of the entry arches in the courtyard. This carved stone window casts beautiful shadows on the wall and corridor throughout the day.
The principal bedroom is full of natural light, has a walk-in closet, ensuite bathroom with beautiful tile work, and a lovely gas fireplace.
Continuing down the hallway past the principal bedroom is a stunning room with glass enclosure. This room has breathtaking views of the Parroquia and other San Miguel churches. This room is equipped with a mini fridge and wet bar and is the perfect place for sunset and evening cocktails. The space can also be used as an artist studio, office or even a third bedroom. A terrace off of this room is also a perfect spot to enjoy the stunning views.
Back on the first floor, just beyond the dining room, an office/reading nook serves as a segway to a charming courtyard beyond which divides the main house and the casita. The courtyard is crowned by an original trough-designed fountain which pays homage to the history of the home, which original housed a stable. An "organos" cactus adorns the stairway which leads to the Casita with separate entrance. The Casita has a great rental history, making it a nice income-producing property.
The Casita is fully equipped with kitchen, laundry and its own on-demand water heater. The spacious bedroom and closet allows for a lovely extended stay for renters, family or guests. The bedroom has a private balcony with views of the churches.
A full house water purification system and mini splits which provide heat and air conditioning to both the main house as well as the casita are just a few of the many amenities this home provides.
This home is offered furnished with exceptions, and some art is available for sale. A true one-of-a-kind restored colonial, it will not last long. Make an appointment to see this special jewel today!
