Casa Hidalgo is an unparalleled property due to its style, dimension and architecture. Characterized by meticulous planning and attention to detail, it stands out because of the fine taste and artistic scope that is inherent in every corner. Surrounded by art, the house itself is a masterpiece.
The property is located in the heart of the emblematic San Angel neighborhood, known by its cobble-stone streets, ancient trees, flowers and quietness. Casa Hidalgo is only a few steps away from Bazar del Sabado and Plaza San Jacinto, where community, art and history mingle to offer a unique experience.
From the moment you cross the door, you submerge yourself in a world outside the reality of Mexico City. Peacefulness, solemnity, space and a pursuit for life enjoyment can be felt by walking the hallway, sitting in a hall or enjoying the central patio. The latter is complemented by a terrace with a tree-lined water mirror that makes you feel in a storytale.
There is a fine selection of sculptures and artifacts in every corner of the house. A perfect example is the sundial that hangs in one of the walls of the patio, which accurately marks time with its shadow hands.
The heart and soul of the house is doubtless its relationship with the arts. There is no better witness to it than the literary collection that sits in the libraries of the residence. Legacy of historian Edmundo O´Gorman, his third library lies in Casa Hidalgo, offering a cozy encounter with history within the walls of this spectacular property.
The residence plays with contrast, a mix of heights, shadow and light. Materials used for construction are impeccable: wood, marble and concrete.To further play with senses, Casa Hidalgo features a fountain that brings the constant sound of water. For enjoying outside spaces besides the central patio, there is a hidden grill to entertain family or guests, and a tennis court apart from the main quarters of the house, but linked by a beautiful yard.
Casa Hidalgo is a property hard to describe in words. The emotions that this house evoke are more intense by being present in this magical space that can be called home.
