The spectacular rooftop garden is over 3,500 square feet of uninterrupted views in all directions. It includes a full gourmet kitchen enclosed with all glass doors & windows for use in any weather conditions. It is complete with GE Profile appliances (refrigerator, gas fired stove top, oven, dishwasher, microwave and two sinks both with garbage disposals), a professionally-designed gas-fired wood burning pizza oven, a circular bar with 10 custom made leather-padded bar chairs, a hot tub for eight people, and a full bathroom complete with glass topped shower. All counter tops are granite, cabinetry is mesquite wood curved to match the curved granite bar and the entire roof has slate tile flooring.
The balance of the roof is open air with custom made cushioned loungers, tables and chairs, gas-fire pit, gorgeous planters and potted plants; excellent for dining outside, entertaining a large party…or for a more intimate evening after a day of touring the many places to explore here in San Miguel.
This Mexican Colonial property is located in one of San Miguel's most distinguished, gated communities. Casa Grande is located 0.4 miles from Parque Juarez, 0.5 miles from the world famous Instituto Allende and 0.7 miles from the Parroquia and El Jardin (the town square), both are the center of the city. The walk to these areas are gently downhill (you can walk home or a taxi is $3 USD from anywhere in town). Juarez Park is also only a short walk as are many restaurants, shops, galleries and the famous historic Instituto Allende on Ancha de San Antonio Street.
The designer home is furnished with Mexican folk art, antiques, fine linens and other plush textiles. The home has a large, beautifully appointed living room, sunny dining room for eight with floor to ceiling glass windows and doors opening to an open air atrium complete with water fountain, loungers, table and chairs and the sounds of birds chirping daylong.
The large kitchen features stainless steel GE appliances and a heavy duty Viking industrial gas stove complete with grill and griddle. The kitchen includes wonderful cabinetry and hand-painted Mexican tile with plenty of prep areas and includes a separate maid’s sink, additional prep area and pantry space; truly a gourmets delight!!!
A laundry room with full size washer and dryer is located in the home immediately beyond the maid's kitchen.
The main house can sleep six with a king master suite and two bedrooms with queen beds. An additional inflatable queen size air mattress is available for 2 extra guests if needed. The sofas in the living room can also sleep 2 others.
A 4th bedroom and additional casitas are located on the property as described at the bottom of this section. (See VRBO links below to the other adjacent properties offered by the owner).
The home includes four additional items of importance:
•Purified, pressurized water treatment systems so that there are no problems with drinking the water or having adequate water pressure to all users.
•Internet and TV access. Because all homes and hotels in SMA are built with stone and brick walls, such services can be spotty at best. To alleviate such problems, we have installed hard wire to each room and then broadcast Wi-Fi from that point forward in each room. We have three services coming into the property from the cable company divided by five servers in the house so that each user will receive at least 14 mbs on their devices.
•48” Samsung Smart TVs are provided to keep you tuned to your favorite streaming sites be it Netflix, YouTube or other providers.
•A monitored burglar alarm and perimeter security cameras are provided for your peace of mind.
Maid service is included twice per week. Additional service can be provided at additional cost and availability.
All rooms include ceiling fans and gas fire places. A US Vonage phone is available so you can call anywhere in the world free of charge…and your friends and family can reach you, too, free of charge.
As an added benefit, Lawnie & Michelle Sturdevant (the owners) live in a separate house located next door and are available at any time to assist you.
We look forward to meeting you and hosting your incredible stay in San Miguel de Allende.
If you require additional space for visiting guests or friends, we have 4 additional luxury one-bedroom casitas located on the property next door. You can review a description of each of the casitas, rates and availability at the following locations/links:
