Casa Lluvia Blanca southwestern-porch

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.

Cathi House designed the curving steel railings and they were custom made by our blacksmith in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Becky Harris added this to Design Opportunity: Style in the Stairs
This house combines traditional Mexican, Moroccan, and modern styles. The ornate scrolls provide a contrast to the modern exterior, yet play off the circular window. Check out the fun shadows they make on the balcony. See the rest of this Mexican/Moroccan/Modern mash-up
