This architectural masterpiece, designed and built four years ago by renowned architect Nicole Bisgaard, is one of the most beautiful homes in San Miguel de Allende. Casa Guadiana is spacious, airy and elegant yet comfortable and practical. Perfect for enjoying the casual San Miguel lifestyle for the discerning buyer.
The moment you enter into the welcoming hall with its impressive double-height ceiling topped with a brick and glass cupola, its stunning, one-of-kind mosaic floor and the long view to the covered outdoor living area, garden and pool, you immediately know that you are entering a very special property.
Off to the right of this stunning entry hall, behind very tall wood French doors, is a beautiful chef's kitchen with island, wine fridge, double ovens, warming oven, built-in microwave, dishwasher and a fabulous walk-in pantry. Off to the left of the entry hall is the private main bedroom suite with its huge bathroom with soaking tub and separate shower and large closets. There is also direct access to the garden and swimming pool from this beautiful owner's retreat.
Conveniently connected to the kitchen yet out of sight is the gracious and ample dining room with 12 foot beamed ceilings and an impressive hand-carved cantera stone fireplace, flanked on either side by a set of beautiful iron French doors. From this room, one can either walk through to the outdoor entertaining area or to the elegant and ample living room, again with 12-foot beamed ceilings and another stunning hand-carved cantera stone fireplace, which is once again flanked by iron French doors. And again, a beautiful set of doors leads to the outdoor entertainment area, taking full advantage of indoor/outdoor lifestyle for which San Miguel is famous. Through a doorway from this more formal living room is the library/office/TV room which also leads to the outdoor entertaining area. As in the dining room and the living room, this den features a hand-carved stone fireplace which has French doors on either side of it, letting in breezes and light.
The large, covered outdoor entertainment space has a comfortable area to sit by yet another fireplace or dine with your friends and family overlooking the beautiful private garden and relaxing and refreshing swimming pool.
The second floor of this home, reached via a stunning curved staircase, has three bedrooms, two with a connecting bathroom and one with en-suite and with multiple outdoor terraces, ideal areas for your guests to spend some quiet time.
The architect took advantage of the sloping lot to build a staff quarters below the main living level, complete with full bath, laundry area and sleeping area. This level also includes a large gym/yoga studio which could easily be converted into an independent casita. This lower floor also includes another access point to the property which is very conveniently located in the heart of the Guadiana neighborhood, offering easy, flat walking access to most San Miguel attractions, markets and restaurants.
