From Villa Chorro’s Centro perch above historic San Miguel de Allende viewers absorb city-wide views—including the iconic Parroquia—stretching to Guanajuato, not only from the stunning roof terrace but from lower levels as well. This ideal location—tucked far away from Centro traffic—is on a closed Callejon accessed down a private gated cobblestone and tree-lined cul-de-sac seemingly from a Merchant & Ivory set, serving only three homes. This idyllic setting might be expected of a country home, but not for an estate in Centro walking distance to the Jardin.
The main residence—see the grand entry flanked by magnificent cantera Corinthian columns—houses two bedrooms, an open great-room plan with city-wide views from the dining room and adjacent dining terrace and wet bar, kitchen with both a butler’s pantry and a china pantry, two offices on two levels, gym, stepped media room with 75-inch surround-sound TV, multiple all-city-view verandas at the rear, and a music room straight from the set of Amadeus boasting both a harpsicord and baby grand—the owners hosted Baroque Music and Chamber Music events here—with a mezzanine library and 18-foot ceilings, all overlooking the city. Bring your violin—or your Spotify—and try the acoustics!
Additionally, two rear separate-entrance casitas—one a full home with separate living/dining/kitchen—can provide rental income or guest housing for your favorite Baroque violinist. The casitas front a rear street and could even have street access from this side. Across the rear street, a vacant 488 m2 lot is also available should you wish to protect your view corridor or provide an oversized garden.
This limestone-constructed home features Pella double and triple-paned windows and sliding doors throughout. The home includes an oversized enclosed garage and the expected amenities, from whole-house water filtration to security system. Note, this lot size and price includes pro-rata ownership of the private street fronting the home. The vacant 488 m2 lot behind the home is also available for an additional $438,000. Let’s plan a home tour soon but bring your best Cecil B. DeMille cell camera when you come, you’ll want to capture these astounding rooms before you come back for the sunset Prosecco view with a Bellini-colored sky!
