Casa Cariño, grand-scale Mexican villa

2063

Situated in a private gated drive not far from Centro, Casa Cariño is probably the most magnificent property in San Miguel de Allende. Being perched on a hillside, this home overlooks all of San Miguel, the valley and the distant mountains.

This building is really stunning with its dramatic three-story rotunda, with its multiple terraces, balconies, and with the breathtaking views it offers from all levels. All living spaces are extremely spacious, including a large living room, a dining room, a poolside entertainment pavilion, a “cantina,” and a number of beautiful sitting terraces. The areas for the staff are numerous and they add to the seven large bedrooms, including here a large master suite. Other characteristic features of this luxury home would probably be the central elevator, the state of the art systems, the pool, and the double garage.

Casa Cariño was conceived as a private home and it offers views that sweep across the historic Mexican town below. Bell towers and Gothic spires pierce the skyline with background hues shifting from blues to russet to golden as the setting sun disappears behind the mountains.

In 2008 this very interesting town situated in the heart of the Mexican state of Guanajuato was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. It offers a unique atmosphere with its splendid colonial buildings. Today San Miguel de Allende is known internationally for its impressive degree of conservation, for its buoyant social scene and exciting nightlife.
