Casa de las Estrellas

Filled with gardens and light, this 2,000 square foot courtyard home faces west on a quiet street in the historic center of the beautiful 450 year old colonial town of San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. Entry, living, dining and kitchen open onto a plant filled patio. An arc of burgundy columns against a deep blue wall opens the master bedroom onto a private garden. The master bath embraces an ancient pomegranate tree, its tile mural in cobalt, ochre, green and burgundy sparkling with droplets of filtered sunlight. Upstairs, each bedroom has a private balcony and share a covered terrace and bath; a cylindrical shower of polished green concrete topped with glass has an eternal view to the sky.

Sinuous stairs snake upward to the upper floor while frosted star light fixtures sparkle against the 20 foot tall blue patio wall. Rusted steel sconces march in rhythm with skylights and railings. Grids of steel windows span floor to ceiling, linking inside to outside in an invisible embrace. Luscious colors of mango, cobalt and soft green are limewashes toned with natural minerals. Red and ochre river rocks twist against a charcoal background in the courtyard. Shafts of light spill between square columns onto a 200-year-old carpenter’s table, framed to become the 11-foot dining table. The home is modern, yet saturated with the deepest of Mexican tradition.
