Nestled amidst the cobblestone streets of the UNESCO world heritage city of San Miguel de Allende, a truly extraordinary opportunity awaits – the acquisition of an 18th century historical gem which beckons those with a penchant for timeless elegance and rich heritage.
This rare colonial property location was part of the original urban design of this historical city and is mere steps away from the landmark parroquia with its tree lined jardin, a popular gathering place for locals and tourists alike.

As you pass through the imposing hand-hewn wooden doors, you are instantly transported into a realm of enchantment, a sanctuary of serenity hidden just moments from the vibrant heart of San Miguel. A vast interior courtyard, paved with the original flagstones, unfurls before your eyes, adorned with an ancient central fountain whose waters cascade with gentle grace. Towering lemon trees and meticulously nurtured flora paint a picturesque tableau, all framed by the embrace of a graceful colonnade supporting stone arches. By nightfall, subtle up lights unveil the intricate architectural wonders, casting a spell of romantic Spanish allure over the surroundings.

This historic residence has been owned by a local family since 1958, and they’ve lovingly preserved its essence and originality as a charming boutique hotel. Boasting eleven ensuite bedrooms, with seven of them spilling directly onto the courtyard, the layout exudes classic symmetry, every wide door crowned by time-worn lintels. Here, the central courtyard stands as the social heart, echoing the time-honored traditions of daily life and human connection.

Overlooking this splendid courtyard, an opulent dining room beckons just steps from a traditional colonial style kitchen, while an intimate salon exudes an understated elegance from a bygone era. The interior, an eloquent testament to its colonial origins, holds the promise of seamless modern conversion, ensuring a graceful blend of past and present.

Through an ancient stone corridor, one finds four additional suites set amongst a small garden laced with hundred-year-old vines surrounding a tiled wall fountain.

A whisper from history, this is a unique and rare opportunity to own a piece of San Miguel de Allende’s narrative. It’s an invitation to breathe life into a timeless masterpiece, to be the guardian of its storied past, and to craft a future steeped in the enchantment of this UNESCO treasure.

This iconic property is perfect to continue the tradition of a boutique hotel or to transition back into a private residence, concept house or private club. In an unrivaled prime corner location, it currently houses a separate retail space that could be incorporated back into the original building. Please note property is being sold furnished with the exception of the unique cushions and textiles, courtesy of Roma Quince by Deborah Salmon Villarreal, Mexico City and San Miguel de Allende.
