    Casa Acanto

    To step into Casa Acanto is to enter a lush, tranquil world of luxury and exquisite style in the very heart of San Miguel de Allende. The founders of the award-winning design firm Fisher Weisman have lovingly transformed this historic 18th century property into a truly spectacular home offering the epitome of gracious indoor-outdoor living, where perfectly appointed rooms open onto elegant garden terraces shaded by enormous jacaranda trees. The house was completely renovated and includes superb architectural details and sumptuous furnishings throughout, including many custom pieces designed by the owners and created by local master craftsmen.

    Accordingly, the gourmet kitchen features top-of-the-line appliances and fine finishes, including a 48” Wolf range, 42” Subzero refrigerator/freezer, plus two additional Subzero refrigerator drawers, and a Cove dishwasher.  There are two hammered copper sinks and custom handsome cabinetry. The stunning range hood has hammered copper details, and an extensive collection of vintage French copper pots are included.

    A wall of windows with bi-fold glass doors open from the kitchen onto the lovely outdoor sala with its high, beamed ceiling, including a wood-burning fireplace with the capability to use as an Argentinian grill.  The sophisticated outdoor furniture, including strikingly carved marble tables from India, make it the ideal place to sit and relax.

    The dramatic octagonal dining room has gorgeous paneling with hidden cabinets (securely accessed with a card key) and dreamy clouds on the trompe l’oeil ceiling. The dining room connects to the stylish bar with its beautiful banded blue glass centerpiece designed for the space by acclaimed artist Orfeo Quagliata. The bar also offers a fireplace, mirrored ceiling, and hidden door to the garage.

    The indoor living room presents luxurious furnishings including antique carpets, Arturo Pani cocktail tables, and custom cabinets with a scroll motif inspired by the massive stone scroll outside the primary bedroom, as well as a fireplace and four sets of French doors opening to lush gardens.

    The primary suite features a large, inviting terrace, study, twin dressing rooms, and a dramatic oval domed bathroom with a copper bathtub in the center filled by a stream of water from the chandelier above it, along with double sinks, shower, and private WC.

    The L-shaped main building is laid out in such a way that each bedroom has a private terrace, stunning views, warm light, cross ventilation, and privacy, unlike typical courtyard houses.

    The enchanting gardens beckon from every room. Limestone paving extends throughout the gardens where fountains burble and copper spheres nestle among lush, mature plantings and 100-year-old jacarandas. The gardens are dramatically illuminated for evening entertaining, and three interlocking teak tables on a dining terrace can seat up to 20 guests. The beautifully tiled pool is set off by plumbago-laden walls, and a large, grotto-like jacuzzi is tucked into another lovely spot. The central fountain was beautifully carved from a single huge block of cantera.

    The two-story pool house was built in 2011. The bedroom overlooks the pool area from the second floor. On the rooftop, you can enjoy sunset drinks with a spectacular view of the parroquia with its built-in banquettes and subtle lighting. The entire property has stabilized electrical voltage, purified water, and SONOS speakers, and there is a safe in every bedroom. Four of the five bedrooms have air conditioning/heat mini-split units, as does the study in the principal suite and the kitchen.

    The house is turn-key with only 1 chandelier exclusion in the dining room that is being replaced with another beautiful Fisher Weisman Design.

    This distinguished home was showcased in a 16-page spread in the April 2013 issue of Architectural Digest, again in Architectural Digest Mexico in April 2019, in Garden and Gun in 2018, and in Veranda in 2021. Here are links to the most recent articles:

    Raving Reviews My Clients Say...
    I see why Warren Buffett’s team chose Greg

    for the flagship Mexico office of Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices! Greg sold my Centro home the first week for full-price in the middle of the pandemic, we loved his service so well we hired him again for our 2nd home sale, which he successfully sold. If you need the best Realtor for your home sale, do like Mr. Buffett and call Greg!

    - Don & Carol Blivas
    We’re triple repeat clients of Gregs!

    We chose Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices to sell our homes since Greg was able to list our home in the American MLS System with his franchise, and indeed, Greg also found the buyer! We've found that Warren Buffet's company offers a host of extras. It sold our home in record time!

    - Bill & Kathryn Graham
    We were referred to Greg by friends

    because he sold their home in a week during our depressed pandemic market. Guess what? He did the same for us, just weeks later, at 98% of asking price!

Call Greg first if you’re serious about selling your home!
