Welcome to Casa Toscana, a truly unique home of elegance and charm.
Located in Historic Centro, yet away from the busy energy of the main Jardin, this home is a gem. From the moment you step inside the property, you will sense the care and attention to every detail. The entrance to the house was inspired by the old colonial Zaguan, a vestibule that leads into the central courtyard. The dramatic Cantera arches, rectangular fountain, stone walls, and cypress trees that adorn the lush garden will transport you to a feeling of a different time and place.
The main level features an expansive living and dining room with dramatic sixteen-foot ceilings finished with wood beams and a stunning carved fireplace. French doors lead you to a covered loggia adorned with beautiful stone arches where you will enjoy the delightful San Miguel indoor-outdoor lifestyle. This is a perfect arrangement for entertaining.
The spacious kitchen designed in white and green accents features a walk-in pantry, laundry room, and sitting area which faces the central courtyard and is perfect for cozy morning coffee and evening gathering. A magnificent Murano chandelier enhances the kitchen.
The far end of the living and dining room is highlighted by an elegant and dramatic staircase with iron and brass accents that invites you to the second level where you will find the master suite, guest room and outdoor terrace.
The master suite is spacious and bright, a calm and beautiful room. It features a stone fireplace, large walk-in closet, bathroom with double vanity, separate jacuzzi tub, and shower all designed with traditional tile. On one end of the suite is mounted two very large mirrors to expand the space and bring the outdoors within. Multiple French doors open to a private terrace overlooking the central courtyard.
The guest room appointments include a fireplace, walk-in closet, full bath and arched windows with west views.
The graceful staircase continues to the third floor and fourth bedroom currently being used as an artist studio – a most inspiring space! Four grand arched windows overlooking the city with far reaching mountain views provide superb northern light making this an artist’s dream studio. The space could also be a yoga studio, meditation room, amazing home office, or configured to be an additional master suite, all plumbing is in place for a full bath with approved architectural plans.
San Miguel is all about the views, and this rooftop terrace has a sweeping panorama! Friends will marvel as the city vistas and distant landscape become aglow with each setting sun. The terrace is complete with wet bar, built -in cabinets, refrigerator, island-table, and hardwood counter tops. This is the jewel of the crown.
On the opposite side of the central courtyard is an exterior spiraling staircase suggestive of Gaudi architecture which winds you up to a self-contained guest casita. Bright east and west facing windows and French doors open out to the street and the interior courtyard. The casita features a kitchenette, full bath, built-in closets, vestibule and stone fireplace. Your guest may never want to leave!
