Casa Lluvia Blanca southwestern-exterior

Casa Lluvia Blanca

Nestled into the quiet middle of a block in the historic center of the beautiful colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, this 4,500 square foot courtyard home is accessed through lush gardens with trickling fountains and a luminous lap-pool. The living, dining, kitchen, library and master suite on the ground floor open onto a series of plant filled patios that flood each space with light that changes throughout the day. Elliptical domes and hewn wooden beams sculpt the ceilings, reflecting soft colors onto curving walls. A long, narrow stairway wrapped with windows and skylights is a serene connection to the second floor ''Moroccan' inspired suite with domed fireplace and hand-sculpted tub, and "French Country" inspired suite with a sunny balcony and oval shower. A curving bridge flies through the high living room with sparkling glass railings and overlooks onto sensuously shaped built in sofas. At the third floor windows wrap every space with balconies, light and views, linking indoors to the distant mountains, the morning sun and the bubbling jacuzzi. At the rooftop terrace domes and chimneys join the cozy seating for intimate gatherings.

The material around the windows is Cantera stone from Mexico. The white color is a custom made pigmented lime wash applied directly to the wall surface.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Vanessa Brunner added this to Houzz Tour: A Modern Mexican Paradise
Since the building is so high and narrow, three courtyards were sprinkled throughout the layout of the home to let natural light into the interior. The plot the couple picked out is an odd shape, a combination of three backyard areas. But it's also beautiful and very private, and the client's wife fell in love with it immediately.
