This colonial era, spacious 4 bedroom home is located in the town center, originally across the river (now covered) from the town center. The location is inside the UNESCO World Heritage zone, just a few blocks from the Plaza de la Paz, Teatro Juarez, plazas Los Angeles and San Fernando. Theaters, restaurants, museums, shopping and ATMs are within easy walking distance. No long uphill treks or taxi rides to get to and from the action in this amazing town.
The home features the high wood beamed ceilings and 3' thick stone walls typical of 18th century construction, updated with modern comforts. All materials used in the renovation were hand made and sourced locally, the tile, stone and wood bring the essence of colonial Mexico into the apartment. The house is a short walk up from Alonso, a local taxi can take you via "Cerro de Gallo" to within about 30 feet of the door.

The house was renovated over a five year period finishing up in 2010. Using local artisans and materials, the house is beautiful, comfortable, and full of interesting details.
