An Architectural Gem in San Miguel de Allende

We just spent a long weekend in beautiful San Miguel de Allende in Central Mexico. This gem of a Spanish Colonial Mexican town is at once quaint with its cobblestone streets and warm hospitality, as well as cosmopolitan with a burgeoning restaurant scene and an increasing number of chic shops and art galleries. We had visited once about 12 years ago and it has changed tremendously– in a good way. The town has maintained all of the things that make it such a treasure, but you now have countless options for delicious food that could rival that of any major city anywhere else in the world.

I’ll share more about our trip later on, but one of our favorite things about this particular visit to San Miguel was meeting Jeffry Weisman and Andrew Fisher, a pair of designers from San Francisco who have made San Miguel their home. They had us over to their gorgeous home for cocktails one evening. Not only are Jeffry, Andrew, and their new poodle puppy, Charrito exceptionally gracious hosts, it was fascinating to tour their stunning home and hear about its history. The house was originally built in the 1700s as a tannery which is why it doesn’t have the typical Spanish Colonial layout with a central patio, instead the series of buildings has sweeping views of the city and the beautiful gardens from just about any perch. They visited San Miguel for the first time seven years ago and two days later, they bought the property and have since cemented themselves in the local design scene. You can read the full story about the house in this article from Architectural Digest. In the meantime, I’ll be researching real estate in San Miguel!
