    After 15 years of visiting San Miguel on a regular basis, New York Architect and Designer Jacqueline Miró decided to build her own residence, which she completed in 2022. After many viewings of lots and existing houses, she settled on two adjacent small structures in a charming alley near the church of Beneficencia, in Zona Centro. The project involved hiring long time SMA resident and high-end contractor Theresa Wachter to achieve Miró’s design by demolishing the existing structures, terracing, building contention walls, and legally joining the two lots before building the house.

    Miró’s inspiration is rooted in modernism, as well as the colonial architecture of Antigua Guatemala, lighter and more minimal in style than the colorful colonial architecture of Mexico. Casa Clara is a hidden Oasis in a residential alley in the middle of Centro, the most popular area of San Miguel de Allende. The large entry door (built of ending, the wood from which door churches are historically carved) leads unto a cool, dark four-point, 20’ height, arch with views onto a garden, designed by SMA landscape architect Timoteo Wachter, with a central recinto volcanic rock designed by Miró. The lava floors, typical of San Miguel exterior walkways leads unto a half-story covered walkway and al fresco dining area. Floor to ceiling glass doors - handmade for each space by local iron workers - open unto the kitchen and dining area. The Kitchen is designed to accommodate a 10’ by 3’ table, and to sit 10 people. The kitchen counter and backsplash are 4” solid local Cantera stone, and features imported stainless steel appliances provided by Counter Cultures. The custom encino wood cabinets provide plenty of space, as does a walk-in cubbard. This level also houses a powder/laundry room and the guest bedroom with adjacent shower/bath and w/c separated areas.

    The center of the house is a spiral poured concrete staircase, with lava stone and polished cement threads. The minimalist handrail was forged in blackened steel by local artisans.

    The stair landing leads to a balcony right outside the master bedroom (also with an ensuite w/c and shower/bath area) and the Living and second bedroom area. The house becomes much lighter, with sand-colored polished concrete floors and white plastered walls, as the floor to ceiling windows continue the rhythm of the story below. The large living room features a hand carved Cantera gas burning fireplace and is sparsely furnished to allow for an open home office space and library shelves.

    The stairs leads up to the terrace, with breath taking views of San Miguel and the Sunset. A pergola with mature plants allows resting on a hammock or creating an outside living room.

    10’ ceiling height

    Raving ReviewsMy 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!
