Description

Situated on the tranquil outskirts of Pozos, in a secure gated community of up-scale homes amid lavender and olive groves, this gorgeous two-bed, two-and-a-half-bathroom house offers unlimited potential to be your new family home, a vacation retreat, or the inspiration for a small business enterprise.

The stone-fronted house is reached by a long, circular drive and lovely front garden. The entryway opens to a glassed-in porch with views of the equally beautiful back garden and a fountain.

All rooms lead from this porch. There is an open plan living/dining/kitchen area, ideal for entertaining or family gatherings. The cozy living area has a gas fireplace with stone surround, and large windows. Between the living room and kitchen is a dining table for eight. The kitchen has a six-burner gas stove, a stainless steel sink, granite countertops, and a large walk-in pantry. A stunning wall of Talavera tile gives the kitchen a striking focal point.

Off this area is a covered porch, ideal for outdoor dining or reclining in comfort with stunning views of the mountains and the fragrance of lavender.

The master bedroom has a gas fireplace, dressing area with built-in closets, and a tiled bathroom with a soaking tub. A second bedroom also has a fireplace, dressing room, and tiled bathroom with shower.

There are wood-beamed ceilings, soaring bovadas, iron chandeliers, and clay tile floors throughout the house; all giving it that special Mexican flair.

The current owners have lavished a lot of care and attention to the garden, which is surrounded by a low stone wall. Peach, apple, pomegranate, and lime trees are interspersed with cactus, succulants, and colorful flowering plants. A gray-water system provides irrigation. There is ample space to build a guest casita if wanted.

The property comes furnished (except for some art and personal items), equipped with appliances, and has plenty of storage space.

While this is a country setting, you are only five minutes’ drive 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.
