Casa Chorro stands proudly above El Chorro– San Miguel's legendary source of water discovered in the 16th Century– close to other notable landmarks such as the Casa de la Cultura at the end of a picturesque cobblestone lane in one of the best residential neighborhoods in the Historic Center. A truly exceptional property and easily one of San Miguel de Allende's most distinguished homes, the fine, Spanish colonial, hacienda-like estate owned by a prominent media executive is securely ensconced within the walls of its own park on three-quarters of an acre. The terraced compound occupies one of the largest private parcels of land in the old town and echoes a bygone era of elegance with outstanding construction, masterfully crafted materials, and state-of-the-art amenities. Advanced solar system technology provides electricity and hot water off the grid. Staff quarters with three bedrooms and an ample parking area accommodate practical considerations.The ancient front door set within a timeless, vine-clad facade gives way to a dramatic open-air foyer with panoramic views of San Miguel, the valley, and the majestic Sierra of Guanajuato. Each of the eight bedrooms in the 9,278 sf (862M2) residence, have baths en suite. The property is comprised of three principal structures where no detail has been overlooked. Traditional artisanal ceramic tiles, hand-hewn woodwork, fine wrought iron, and masterfully carved stone fireplaces, fountains and water features ornament the stately home inside and out.
