Stunning home on one of San Miguel's most desirable streets originally designed and built by well-known architect, Roberto Burillo, whose signature style includes soaring ceilings, archways, smooth walls, interior walking bridges and fabulous use of natural light. Casa Begoña is a fine example of Burillo at his best.
As you enter the home, you are immediately struck by an organic and serene feel; beautiful iron gate, charming entry garden, smooth walls and stone floors immediately offer a sense of calm. Within the first couple steps in, you will find 3 murals by Polly Stark Ortega, a well known and sought after artist that has adorned the foyer with beautiful hummingbirds, which pay homage to the real hummingbirds that visit the garden. The soaring, barrel ceiling in the entryway hints at what awaits at the end of it: a living room with an impressive two-story vaulted and beamed ceiling creating a sense of space and graciousness, full of natural light. The central fireplace with its hand-carved cantera mantel, provides a cozy warmth during our few chilly winter evenings. A set of glass doors lead to the lovely garden with its ample covered patio, fountain and fireplace, ideal for quiet contemplation or for entertaining a crowd.
Adjacent to the living room is the dining area, conveniently located next to the chef's kitchen which has poured concrete counter tops, an island with sitting bar, a pantry and a intimate patio, ideal for grilling or enjoying a morning coffee. The laundry area and access to the garage are conveniently located off the kitchen. Also located on this entry level is a guest bedroom with en-suite bathroom, full closet with safe, wine cooler, bar and a sleeper sofa, so it doubles as a media room with direct access to the garden.The powder room is beautifully presented with a copper sink and another Polly Stark Ortega mural.
The large skylight and beamed ceiling create dramatic light and shadow effects on the beautiful stone staircase leading to the second floor. To the right of the landing is the second guest bedroom with Juliette balcony and an en-suite bathroom with tub. A soaring walkway with views down to the entry way and the living room leads to the master suite with sitting area, fireplace with cantera mantel, a private terrace, walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom. Another soaring walkway leads to the private office/library/studio.
The roof top terrace is the perfect spot to enjoy an evening of cocktails and relaxation. Local Landscape architect Sarai Guzman gave most care to the selection of flowers that adorn this inviting space, come see it, you won't want to leave.
