Mariposa Mexico, which means “Mexican Butterfly” is a perfect name for this lovely Colonial townhouse located very near the Jardin Park and La Parroquia which is a 300 year old cathedral. The house is in the very center of San Miguel, just a 5-minute walk from all the shops and restaurants.
Mariposa Mexico is located at Callejon Blanco 12 considered one of the loveliest street addresses in Central San Miguel. At the entrance there is a carved antique door to greet you. This seductively hides a leafy green arbor behind the lighted niches and overhead lanterns.Typical of the okra to pastel colors seen on San Miguel buildings, Maripos...a Mexico has a lovely Colonial pink color.The very private sunny front courtyard is quite dramatic when first seen with its three-story bell tower and large central fountain.
There are two bedrooms off this first floor courtyard. Both are professionally decorated in beige tones with period antiques and lovely Spanish accessories. Heated floors and overhead fans ensure comfort at all times during the year. The master suite has a white four-poster wonderfully comfy canopy bed and large bathtub and shower. There are three story light wells above the fireplace in this room that give a magical light throughout the day.
The guest room suite has two four-poster single beds, also divinely comfortable. There is a “bohemian flare” to this second beautifully decorated bedroom. It has fun Mexican accessories and lovely period antique appointments as well.
The second floor living room/ kitchen is all open space with dramatic “boveda” ceilings, large fireplace, brick floors, and area rugs. An ‘L’ shaped sectional provides for comfortable television viewing, TV, Stereo, fax, Vonage phone, and internet connection are all located behind antique wood doors in the bookshelf. At night there are spots in the niches that set off an array of fascinating Santos that are so much a part of the San Miguel culture.
The kitchen itself has a Mexican stove, oversized refrigerator, microwave, and oven with a cozy bar for enjoying evening happy hour.
The roof top level is breathtakingly beautiful with a 360-degree view of all of San Miguel and Parroquia. A delightful greenhouse provides a candlelit room for the roof top open air dining table that seats 10. There are heated floors and fireplaces that allow for comfortable open air dining, even on cooler evenings.
A Jacuzzi or “spool” overlooks the incredible view from atop and is a perfect place for sunning or enjoying a frosted margarita!Read more
