Casita Verde --
Our home is in a gated walled complex in one of the best locations in San Miguel. Directly in front is the new 6 star hotel, Rosewood Artesana. The house has 3 bedrooms, 3-1/2 baths with a beautiful, quiet, back garden and casita with a gas grill and fireplace. It is impeccably furnished with colonial antiques, striking art and new upholstered pieces. Gas heaters are installed for winter and ceiling fans for warm weather.
A brand new kitchen contains everything! A charming breakfast room boasts antique cabinets with old mesquite doors. The living room has its own TV set plus shelves with colonial art.. Our dining room is adjacent to the garden and together with the outdoor tables in the jardin accomodates 15 people at a sit down dinner.. Mounted on the outside wall is a gentle lion head fountain.
A pleasant upstairs sunroom and roof terrace offer views of the Parroquia, other churches, the park, the mountains, sunrise and the birds coming home to roost.
Born in Manhattan, New York and raised in New Jersey I moved to Mexico in 1964. My children were born and brought up in Mexico City. I have been fascinated with San Miguel since the 60.s and always wanted to retire there. Additionally, I am the founder of the first nutrition clinics in Latin America and had 33 offices in 13 states of Mexico.
Needless to add that I know Mexico better than many native born Mexicans
The location is superb and our street is outstandingly beautiful There 2 exits: front and back. Exiting through the front gate we are located directly in front of the 6 star Rosewood Artesana Hotel and if you leave through our back Tenerias gate the 5 star Hotel Matilda is across the street. The Jardin is a 3 block relatively flat walk through the back exit and the Instituto one and a half blocks. Parque Juarez and the playground are just 1/2 block away.
Our place is totally secure with 24 hour vigilance within and two major hotels front and back. We have never had any incidents during the lst 18 years. My property has an on-site administrator who will help with the hot water heater, burned out light bulbs, plumbing problems, etc. The house has a delightful casita which boasts a gas fireplace and a large gas grill. And, during the cool nights you will appreciate the 3 gas fireplaces and the wall installed heater.
Two blocks to the Jardin; 1 block from the Instituto (where many go for art or language classes); and 1/2 block to the park and grocery store.
Other Activities: Biking, 4wheelers for rent, health/beauty spa, hot air ballooning, hiking, shopping
