Casa Marie for sale, magnificent and historic house from the 18th century

Built in 1764, this impressive #property is located in the heart of Centro, just steps from the Garden.

This extraordinary house has the grand symmetry of an 18th century hacienda with soaring arches and a central courtyard. Internationally renowned #interiordesigner Anne-Marie Midy and local landscaper Timoteo Wachter were hired to work with the owner and local artisans to renovate the property while preserving the colonial architecture and soul of its historic Mexican setting. The results are really impressive.

Entering from the street, a wide arched entrance hall leads you into the serene open courtyard garden that is lined on two sides with tall, arched 18th century colonnades. In the center of the courtyard there is a swimming pool. An open-air living room flanks one side of the pool, and a relaxed dining area adjoins. An elegantly decorated guest bedroom with a fireplace and full bath opens directly to the patio through two tall French doors.

A spectacular original 18th century openwork carved double door connects the pool patio to the spectacular dining room with its high beamed ceiling, original chandelier and fireplace. The kitchen is adjacent and has a small rear garden with stairs leading to a staff apartment. Beyond the pool patio, towards the rear of the house, is the large skylit living room flanked by two fireplaces at either end and 18th century columns.

A master bedroom is next door. This room has a fireplace and French doors opening onto a quiet interior patio. The private bathroom is extravagantly tiled in blue and white and has a high vaulted ceiling with a skylight. A staircase from the central courtyard goes up to the second floor.

A wide arched loggia overlooks the pool below and has a landscaped area with herb garden. There are two large bedrooms on this floor, both with fireplaces and beautifully tiled en-suite bathrooms. Both rooms are furnished with old Mexican pieces. The intricate metal-worked mirrors and headboards showcase the wealth of #SanMigueldeAllende’s traditional artisan talent.

After renovating the original 18th century house, the owners purchased an adjoining property behind the house. Using only 18th century materials, they built an extraordinary second #house and garden that integrates seamlessly with the original house. This second home has its own garage and entrance via a private driveway that is just around the corner from the driveway to the original home. It is also accessed by a landscaped path between the two houses. The second house is oriented around a landscaped courtyard anchored by a large central fountain.

There is a covered and columned outdoor living room on one side. The interior rooms of the house: living room, dining room, kitchen, and master bedroom/bath all open to the fountain and garden through French doors on two additional sides.

On the fourth side of the patio there is a guest room with a bathroom. An exterior staircase from the patio leads to a rooftop garden with close-up views of the tops of the baroque churches of San Miguel de Allende. This rooftop space is a true botanical garden with an exceptionally wide variety of regional cacti and flowering plants. Carved concrete benches are intermittently placed along the garden path.

The whole effect is a magical experience in San Miguel de Allende, ideal for large-scale entertainment. This beautiful property is a grand 18th century hacienda that has been skillfully restored into a luxurious home with extensive gardens and a full guest house. Magnificent and historic, this impressive property will make a memorable home in San Miguel de Allende for a discerning buyer.
