Description for BALLONETA #11-5

Architecture aficionados, beware—this design jewel proves beguiling from the entry door! Evoking the best of modern architecture from Mexico, the USA and Europe, the home grants a gracious—and obvious—nod to architecture masters Frank Lloyd Wright, Charles Rennie Macintosh, Ludwig Mies van der Rohe and Ricardo Legorreta. Never before has San Miguel witnessed a home with such tall and grandiose “corner-turning windows” (Wright himself coined the phrase for a glass corner where a column would normally stand) that opens the home visually to the lush Tim Watcher-designed gardens. The entry replicates Macintosh’s museum-collected Hill House ladder-back chair, and even the Parroquia-view rooftop glass sala—ideal for sunset cocktail parties—evokes the National Historic Landmark Farnsworth House, underlit here to simulate a floating effect. High-volume ceilings float above warm tzalam hardwood and travertine floors throughout the ground floor, which offers one-level living boasting a master and secondary bedroom on this level, in addition to the island-anchored chef’s kitchen, grand entertaining areas, both inside and out, and artist’s studio. A floating marble staircase, enclosed in a glass-ensconced tower, connects to a second master suite, oversized master bath with sunken tub, and a large, light-drenched office, all with rooftop access. This oversized lot includes a large side garden—design plans provided for an equally-stunning architectural casita—and winding driveway able to accommodate multiple cars off-street for large parties (an additional guest-parking lot is across the street). An additional 331 M2 adjacent lot can be available for buyers looking for expansion room. Perhaps here is the stunner: this newly-built Centro estate sits on a quiet off-traffic cul-de-sac with through pedestrian-only access…the Rosewood Hotel and Instituto Allende are steps away, while the Jardin is only a short 8-minute stroll. This is Centro living as you’ve never experienced it, an architectural gem wrapping a tranquil zen oasis minutes from the heart of the city, impossible to replicate in today’s market. Like a tour? Let the wannabe designer in you loose and spend an hour with this architect-turned-Realtor—you’ll be home instantly!
