San Miguel de Allende Design Style

So what's behind all those massive beautiful doors, stone walls and windows in San Miguel?

Sometimes it is a glorious church!


And sometimes behind these massive doors, one finds a home that simply takes your breath away!
Casa Acanto, designed by FisherWiseman from San Francisco, is beyond beautiful!
Entry details-

The stunning dining room-

Every accessory chosen with care.

The small, yet efficient kitchen-

The center section on the armoir is actually the door to the garage!  Genius!
The outside living spaces-


The views-

Living Space-

Bedrooms and Baths-
The beautifully crafted handrail- going up the several of the bedrooms.
