This tranquil country setting in the heart of colonial Mexico will have you living the dream. It’s the perfect spot for an active outdoor retirement or to develop an income stream from a small business.

The 4-hectare property is situated within the exclusive gated community of Las Barrancas. It’s accessed by a dramatic custom-made iron gate, bounded by the historic Camino Real, and overlooked by Mt. Aguila (the eagle) that is sacred to the local Chicimeca people. It’s a truly magical spot. The current owners have planted 350 olive trees, which when mature, offer the possibility of an oil business. There is also a lavender plantation and a corn field. A windmill provides water to an irrigation system making for a low maintenance and low cost operation. Cyprus trees, pampas grass, fruit trees, and indigenous plants all add beauty to the surroundings. There is enough space here to let your entrepreneurial spirit run wild: expansion of the olive and lavender plantations; organic farming, high-end event venue, destination weddings, artists retreat, casitas to provide B&B, horse stables, hiking and mountain biking excursions.

The immaculately maintained house is overhung with flowering vines. There are two glassed-in verandas which, when the morning mist clears giving way to a sparkling clear day, offer stunning views across the property to the distant Sierra Gorda Mountains. Inside, you have an open-plan space with a living area around a gas log fireplace, and an eat-in kitchen decorated with colorful Mexican tile and fully equipped with state-of-the-art appliances. A wooden stair leads to a large sleeping loft that the kids or grandkids will love! The master bedroom, which opens to a private terrace, has a log fireplace, walk-in closet and beautifully tiled bathroom. A further large tiled, full guest bathroom has a tub. You will be spoilt for choice at sundown. Sip a margarita on the open air terrace covered by a lantern-strung tree; soak in the Jacuzzi surrounded by scented honeysuckle and passion flower vines; or star gaze around the fire pit.

While this is truly a rustic and private setting, you are only five minutes from the pueblo magico of Mineral de Pozos, 45 minutes from San Miguel de Allende (voted the world’s best city!), and an hour from the large metropolis of Queretaro with familiar box stores, malls, and an international airport.

The property is water self-sufficient, has city electricity, internet, and good cell reception.
