Mexican modern meets California chill in San Miguel de Allende golf haven

After a satisfying round of golf, imagine yourself strolling back to Casa Sunset, laying your clubs down and heading straight to the plush, open-plan kitchen to pour yourself a well-deserved aperitif.

Listening to the hum of the crickets on a balmy Mexican evening, you find the shimmering blue water in the private dipping pool enticing you in to watch the sun go down. If things couldn’t get any better, it’s one of those majestic sunsets where the warm dusk hues sweep across the horizon, accentuating the sprawling green Guanajuato mountains.

This is the moment when you ask yourself, does life get any better than this

Casa Sunset, privately located in the gated La Mesa de Malanquín, is a prime example of the superb designer homes that are popping up throughout the development. It is designed by the renowned Paola Rodríguez – who has worked on signature homes in San Miguel, Cuernavaca, Mexico City, Acapulco, and Puerto Escondido – and developer Gustavo Asp of “Lomas Residencial La Mesa de Malanquín”.

“Paola and Gustavo have created architectural wonders with these homes,” says agent Kelley West, referring to how Casa Sunset beautifully combines modern and relaxed living.

Key features:

  • A US $820,000 modern Mexican oasis situated in the Malanquín golf course community with spectacular sunset views of the vast mountain range and the Ignacio Allende reservoir.
  • The first of three new exclusive properties designed by renowned designer Paola Rodriguez and developer Gustavo Asp of ‘Lomas Residencial La Mesa de Malanquín’.
  • This three bedroom, three and a half bath home is spread over 435 m² of construction and boosts an enviable heated infinity plunge pool on the private rear patio.

On the one hand you’re getting a New York City-style penthouse, with its open-plan living areas and contemporary finishes, such as black-lacquered pine cabinets and a black granite countertop in the kitchen. Then there are organic and local Mexican elements like hand-carved stone walls (mined from nearby quarries), complemented by one of the many cozy fireplaces in the main living area, and the characteristic solid cantera countertop in the master bath.

Artistically landscaped outdoor and auto-irrigated indoor vertical gardens with over 400 local succulents, bougainvilleas, bamboos, fruit trees, and lavender bushes let you slip into a calming and sensory oasis.

With its generous 435 m² of construction, three bedrooms, three and a half baths, a stylish kitchen that flows through to the dining room and living room, private rear patio with a heated pool/hot tub, and a floating staircase to die for, Casa Sunset really is the house that keeps giving.

Casa Sunset has access to every amenity you can think of on your doorstep, including a wellness center, top-quality gym, swimming pool, tennis courts, and a fabulous community center that includes a delicious restaurant offering meal delivery right your front door.

One of the big attractions for those looking to relocate or invest in a second home in San Miguel is the vibrant golfing community. Although your first impression when picturing golf courses in Mexico is probably not a historic city at 6,200 feet above sea level right in the middle of the country, San Miguel may surprise you.

Malanquín is San Miguel’s original professional 18-hole golf course built 50 years ago. It’s not only a fantastic place to tee-off but also enjoys year-round sunshine, expansive mountain and lake views, has a real family feel with all the leisure activities on offer, and has established itself as one of the most exclusive luxury real estate hubs in town.
