It’s not surprising that both visitors and locals continue to call San Miguel de Allende magical. The colonial-era city is filled with Spanish baroque architecture, cobblestone streets, colorful historic churches, incredible fine dining, and a thriving art scene. One trip here and you’ll be itching to stay.

Well now you can, as a stunning home overlooking the enchanting destination is for sale for $2.69 million.

Villa Agave is tucked away in the secluded prestigious Privada with panoramic views of San Miguel and the Parroquia. Of course, like it’s surroundings, the home is architecturally significant. It was built in a colonial style by a famous San Miguel Architect, Manuel Barbosa.

Inside you’ll find four bedrooms and four-and-a-half baths in addition to sprawling common areas. Upon entering the home, you’ll be greeted by a grand foyer with a sweeping staircase and chandelier. From there you can flow into any number of entertaining areas. A combo living/dining area features a fireplace and exposed wood beam ceiling that opens directly to the outside via three archways.

Elsewhere there’s a formal dining room complete with a fireplace and deep orange colored walls, a cozy office with built-in bookshelves and fireplace, fully equipped media room with state of the art projector, outdoor gym, and a billiards room with the same hued walls found in the dining area. And the light-filled chef’s gourmet kitchen is “perfect for inviting your friends for a special dinner prepared by the in house chef,” reads the listing.

Many of the spacious bedrooms feature their own fireplaces and lead directly to the outdoors. The master suite boasts a sitting area, spa-like bathroom, and private balcony with sweeping views of the culturally-significant city below. Throughout the home, you’ll find stunning design details such as vaulted ceilings, colorful tile work, and intricate cabinetry.

But it’s arguably the exterior that’s the most impressive. The home has beautifully-maintained mature gardens with a heated swimming pool and Jacuzzi. The bi-level terrace is the perfect spot for relaxing and taking in the views of San Miguel. There’s also a two-story interior courtyard with a fountain and seating and numerous patios throughout to find refuge.

Best yet, the property is sold completely turn-key with all the bells and whistles, including a 2017 Suburban and three four-wheelers.
