Description

In the heart of San Miguel’s Centro, Casa de la Espiga and Casa de las Estrellas offer an exquisite and unique blend of history and architectural brilliance. Constructed in 1717, Casa de la Espiga carries the legacy of a once-bustling bakery, evidenced by its preserved stonework, arches, and an original bakery sign.

Upon entering the main house, you’re greeted by a colonial hacienda-style courtyard adorned with bright bougainvilleas and the soothing sound of an antique water fountain. The ‘Library Room’ opens out onto this courtyard, featuring a unique mezzanine level filled with handmade bookshelves and a cozy office space. A cantera gas fireplace and a top-of-the-range mini-split blends historical charm with modern luxuries.

Adjacent to the courtyard lies the expansive high-ceilinged living room, boasting another grand cantera gas fireplace and enviable antique furnishings. Further in, the dining room and light-flooded kitchen showcase carved stone arches, antique chandeliers, and bespoke hand-painted Mexican tiles. The kitchen, a chef’s delight, is fitted with modern amenities amidst whispers of its historical past.

The master suite, neighboring the dining room, emanates luxury. French doors open to a patio seating area, and inside, a mix of historical appeal and modern comforts ensconce you. Exiting, remnants of its bakery past like the stone sign and intricate arches transport you back in time.

Ascend to the rooftop terrace to discover a secluded, modern ensuite guest bedroom with a bathtub, offering breathtaking views of San Miguel de Allende. The terrace, a haven of relaxation, features a jacuzzi overlooking the Guanajuato mountains and the iconic Convento Las Monjas. There is also a cozy seating area with a BBQ grill and a fireplace ideal for al fresco dining.

Then, Casa de las Estrellas awaits. With its reception space reminiscent of Arabian tales, this ‘guest house’ transports you to another world. Moorish design elements like beaded chandeliers, hand-carved star skylights, and intricate hand-painted mosaic tiles run through its veins, from the stunning and expansive water feature, to the open-plan living spaces, the mezzanine area, and the roof-top level ensuite guest room.

Situated at San Miguel’s epicenter, Casa de la Espiga and Casa de las Estrellas offer proximity to vibrant boutiques, art galleries, and world-class restaurants. More than just homes, they stand as iconic symbols of San Miguel’s rich architectural and cultural tapestry. In this legacy property, you’re not just acquiring a home, but a chapter of history waiting to be lived.
