CDR San Miguel is proud to bring to the market one of San Miguel de Allende´s most distinguished homes, “Casa Chorro”, offered by Christie´s International Real Estate Luxury Specialist, Ann Dolan.

A truly exceptional property and easily one of San Miguel de Allende’s most distinguished homes, the fine, Spanish colonial, hacienda-like estate owned by a prominent media executive is securely ensconced within the walls of its own park on three-quarters of an acre. The terraced compound occupies one of the largest private parcels of land in the old town and echoes a bygone era of elegance with outstanding construction, masterfully crafted materials, and state-of-the-art amenities.


“CDR San Miguel is pleased to represent Casa Chorro.  Over the years Casa Chorro has hosted and been part of some of San Miguel´s most iconic weddings and social celebrations including MTV’s 30th Anniversary, La Calaca Festival, Top Chef Mexico, Netflix Chef’s Table as well as the launch of Tequila Casa Dragones. Many celebrity guests and top chefs have also had the pleasure of staying at the house,” says Ann Dolan.

The ancient front door set within a timeless, vine-clad façade gives way to a dramatic open-air foyer with panoramic views of San Miguel, the valley, and the majestic Picacho mountain range. Each of the eight bedrooms in the 9,278 sf (862m2) residence, have baths en suite. The property is comprised of three principal structures where no detail has been overlooked. Traditional artisanal ceramic tiles, hand-hewn woodwork, fine wrought iron, and masterfully carved stone fireplaces, fountains and water features ornament the stately home inside and out.


The main residence has two master bedrooms and a complement of graciously decorated and appointed living and entertaining spaces, including: a kitchen with commercial-grade appliances, living room, dining room, library, study, and grandly proportioned terrace porches and loggias wrapping around the three-story structure. A stairway from the master suite on the top floor leads to a private rooftop terrace-garden with breathtaking views. A five-suite guesthouse in the same architectural style suggests entertaining on a lavish scale.

A leisurely stroll past the sparkling pool lined with talavera tiles through a jasmine-clad arbor leads to the third principal structure of a more contemporary design with a gym, steam room, Japanese hot tub, and additional, second-story guest suite with dramatic vistas. An amble past the romantic Troje– a traditional wood cottage from Michoacán– poised poetically aside a serene meditation garden makes it clear why this exceptional property has enjoyed a roster of eminent owners for generations.


“San Miguel de Allende is experiencing a tremendous growth in the luxury real estate market,” says CDR Owner and Broker Nancy Howze.  “Sales in this segment have more than doubled in the past six months as Mexican nationals and Americans choose to invest in San Miguel de Allende for the year-round springtime climate and low cost of home ownership.”
