irst you are struck by the beauty of the great room, with its dramatic 18-foot barrel ceiling. But quickly your eye is drawn to the views on your right.
Three sets of double French doors lead to an expansive west-facing veranda, with elegant drapery, a wood-burning fireplace, and stunning vistas of the lake and surrounding countryside. With its ample dining and seating areas, this is the perfect place to entertain.
Casa Veranda sits on a large gently sloping lot, lushly landscaped with cactus, mesquite and roses. Ideally located, it's just one block from the world-class Canales Equestrian Center--with its regulation jumping and dressage rings, onsite vet, and affordable horse boarding--and only ten minutes from town.
Seamlessly blending Mexican Modern and Tuscan styles, noted architect Nicole Bisgaard designed this home and built it of energy-efficient adobe. A crow's new office in the Tuscan tower looks out to the distant mountains.
Casa Veranda is a cook's delight, with its fully equipped stainless kitchen: (six-burner GE Monogram cooktop, and two dishwashers). An adjoining prep kitchen/butler’s pantry has a second refrigerator and third dishwasher.
In the master quarters, nobody has to share—unless they want to. There are two sumptuous bathrooms with travertine flooring and tumbled marble tiles, each with its own forever views--and two generous wood-paneled walk-in closets with dressing areas.
Beneath the veranda is an enormous open-air recreation room with its own kitchen. And just to the left is a roomy and charming attached casita, with a wood-paneled walk-through closet and full bath. (The rec area could easily convert into two additional bedrooms.)
Behind is a 2 1/2 car garage and a separate large storage room.
If you seek the tranquil beauty of the countryside paired with a bounty of creature comforts just minutes from downtown San Miguel de Allende, you owe it to yourself to consider Casa Veranda.
