Poll any current resident of San Miguel de Allende about their favorite destination to live and the answer inevitably comes back as “Centro!” Why ever use a car if you can always walk?
But the Centro of San Miguel can have its drawbacks: traffic noise, security, or lack of room for that luxurious pool you’ve always dreamed of. Some home buyers are unaware they can live in Centro and overcome every one of those objections!
Gated communities within Centro are indeed popular—although rare—but for discriminating home buyers they offer a luxurious lifestyle only steps from the Jardin and the heart of our vibrant city. And surprisingly, there are home offerings in all price ranges!
The Rosewood Residences® surround the Rosewood San Miguel hotel, lining a reproduction of a winding San Miguel cobblestone street. A total of 29 homes form this luxurious enclave where the city’s largest swimming pool, the Sense Spa® and two restaurants are literally a stroll from your door in slippers. Four-bedroom homes start at $1,795,000 USD.
A block closer to the Jardin, the 21-home La Fuente community lines a European-cobblestone walkway tucked away from traffic surrounded by astounding architecturally-detailed estates, all boasting elevator chases, libraries, and cantera floors and fireplaces. Inclusive of concierge services, underground parking, swimming pool and club house, these three-bedroom homes start at $745,000 USD and offer monthly HOA fees under $300.
Perched hillside above San Miguel less than a five minute stroll from the Jardin, the gated 44-model Los Arcángeles condominium project offers dynamic city vistas from all living levels accompanied by U.S. style amenities: pool, hot tub, club house, parking garage and security, all for 2,500 pesos monthly. With five models to choose from, homes here start at $235,000 USD.
