Corner Iconic home at the heart of San Miguel de Allende
This iconic home is located in the center of San Miguel de Allende’s historic center, just steps from the Parroquia cathedral and surrounded by the best restaurants, bars, and art galleries. The home was owned by noted businesswoman and philanthropist, Carmen Beckmann Macías who with her husband acquired the property in the 1930s and created a center of arts, music, and community involvement. Ms. Beckmann was a business entrepreneur, who created a thriving jewelry design and manufacturing business located in a portion of the property. Additionally, she was a sophisticated real estate investor, acquiring multiple homes in San Miguel de Allende. Upon her death, several of her properties were bequeathed to the Universidad de Guanajuato.
Now available for purchase, this property is a rare opportunity to acquire a historic home that has been largely left untouched and retains its period detail and opulence. The home features a spacious entry patio, that provides light and privacy to the multiple bedrooms, library, living room, dining room, and large kitchen. The additional structure that was part of the jewelry factory has been repurposed with several bedrooms and terraces. The crown jewel is the largely undeveloped rooftop terrace that offers tremendous potential.
This spacious historic corner property is well suited as an elegant home, a boutique hotel, or restaurant with rooftop dining.
