Los Balcones is aptly named. This most prestigious neighborhood overlooks all of San Miguel de Allende’s colonial landmarks. These are quiet streets and plazas with lovely homes that have commanding sunset views of the lake and high desert. Yet, San Miguel’s charming jardin, restaurants, shops, and the market are just a twelve-minute stroll down the hill.
Casa Allegre, the 7,400 square-foot, multiple-level home at 18 Montitlan is a crown jewel in an area where comparable properties are rarely available.
This offering has been known for over a decade as one of San Miguel’s most hospitable homes with many encore appearances on house and garden tours, charity soirees, and memorable private parties. Its stunning interiors and unique architectural features have been often photographed.
Where to begin? The soaring entry can serve as a spacious gallery for your favorite art works. The living areas are perfect for entertaining with an open flow and window walls open to the family garden and the main terrace. The spectacular kitchen with its private dining terrace and breakfast room would arouse envy in any professional chef. An elegant dining room has an intimate feel, yet it seats fourteen comfortably. Over all are the arched brick boveda ceilings and dramatic skylights. A terrace large enough for dining and dancing overlooks the formal garden and a winter solarium.
Two beautifully appointed master suites, two spacious guest bedrooms, a full laundry and maid’s quarters, secure covered parking for up to four automobiles, and abundant closets, pantries, and storage rooms complete the picture. You’ll find seven fireplaces (including one on the terrace that is a work of art) for chilly evenings. Estate utility systems for water purification, gas, telephone, internet, and satellite television are in place.
Colonial artifacts and stone carvings have been used with great effect as fountains and focal points in this classic Mexican hillside home and its gardens. If you are interested in living in this lovely village and are comparing residential properties in San Miguel, make an appointment to see Casa Allegre. You’ll find it to be a worthwhile experience.
This is a must see if you are interested in affordable elegance located in an elite neighborhood in historic San Miguel!
