Located in the prime neighborhood of Atascadero, Casa Tejas is an impeccably maintained home with top-of-the-line artisanal cabinetry, stone and metal work. From the street, a door leads into a private, lushly landscaped courtyard with a charming pond. The intricately designed wrought iron front door opens into the foyer, with a custom designed chandelier. Beyond the foyer is the living/dining area and the kitchen. The architecture of this space is uniquely defined via arches and a set of stenciled pillars, which divide the dining area from the living room. The spacious living room has a cozy corner fireplace and leads to a light-filled office with large French doors that open out to a well-landscaped terrace.
The large chef’s kitchen has been recently renovated with beautifully hand-crafted, carved cupboards, charming brickwork, a professional grade 6-burner stove and new appliances.
The master bedroom is on the first floor, adjacent to the living room. This large bedroom has a wall of custom-designed, wood cabinets and an exquisitely hand-stenciled, cantera stone fireplace. The large, attached bath has soothing rose-hued cantera tile throughout a large separate tub and a luxurious fireplace.
The second floor has a large guest bedroom with hand-crafted cupboards and floor-to-ceiling arched windows that overlook the terrace. The ensuite bath has top-quality cantera stone tiles and countertop. The covered outdoor terrace is reached through the outer hall. This tree house of a terrace is surrounded by greenery and elegantly carved pillars. A stair leads to the rooftop with vistas of endless sky and far off mountains.
Casa Tejas is a home that takes full advantage of San Miguel’s unique and historic community of craftsmen and artisans. Its iron work, cabinetry and stonework are all locally sourced and of the best quality. Other amenities include a cover carport and laundry.
