From its lofty perch in Rinconada Balcones, this modern masterpiece by award-winning architect Felipe Argüelles offers superb design and all the amenities you’d expect in a million-dollar home.
Minutes away from San Miguel’s “Charco del Ingenio” botanical garden and adjacent to its own green space of jacaranda and mesquite trees, this urban oasis makes the most of its site – from its ground level garage and workshop to its expansive rooftop terrace with panoramic views in every direction.
From the gated front entry, visitors ascend a dramatic covered outdoor staircase with an oversized glass door to the home’s main level. An expert mix of rustic and modern surfaces, including beamed ceilings, smooth walls and travertine floors come together to give it a distinctive, gallery-like feel.
Morning sunlight moves through the double height great room through massive 20 foot sliding doors which open onto a secure, screened outdoor living room and low maintenance garden. Outfitted with steel planters, a fountain and a grill area, this dramatic open space offers true indoor/outdoor living on a grand scale.
The adjacent kitchen is sleek, stylish and outfitted for a gourmet chef. With stainless steel appliances, custom walnut cabinetry and honed black granite countertops it’s truly the heart of this magnificent home, and the perfect space for cooking and entertaining family and friends.
The main floor master suite is generously sized and features large double pane windows overlooking the green space. The luxurious bath offers a huge walk-in shower with dual heads, dual vanities, separate WC and walk-in closet. Both bedrooms are equipped with silent HVAC units for year-round comfort.
Upstairs, the open plan media room includes an office area, with ample space to enjoy movies, entertainment and sporting events. The sliding wall panels overlooking the great room can be easily closed off to make this a private guest bedroom with convenient access to the Jack and Jill bath that’s shared with the second bedroom.
There’s also a flexible space perfect to use as exercise room and a stairway leading up to the fourth floor roof top terrace. From here, you’ll enjoy jaw-dropping vistas of the entire city from sunrise to sunset and a dramatic Fire Pit for nigh time enjoyment. With another half bath and laundry area, plus both open and covered open spaces, you’ve truly got it made in the shade, all year round.
From top to bottom, every inch of this 4,000 square foot home offers exquisite craftsmanship, advanced technology and exceptional security and comfort. The ground level 6-car garage is prepped with plumbing and can easily be customized to create a studio, private casita or other flexible space.
Don’t miss your chance to own this stunning modern masterpiece in Mexico’s most picturesque and beloved City.
