Casa Acanto Vacation Rental San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

Casa Acanto was featured in Architectural Digest April 2013 issue. The interiors are by the renowned San Francisco design firm of Fisher Weisman. The stone building at the front of the property was built in the 18th Century as a tannery and was converted to a residence and expanded over the following two centuries. The L-shaped building is laid out so that each of the 5 bedrooms includes a terrace, stunning views, light-filled spaces and privacy.



The  entry hall with a vaulted ceiling and old stone floors leads to a custom kitchen with Viking appliances, marble counters, custom tile walls and cabinets made from reclaimed pine beams.



The house features tile floors throughout, ceilings with substantial pine beams and tejamaníl, extra-thick doors with planks of reclaimed pine.

Custom fireplaces with Cantera stone mantels are located throughout the home.



An adjoining breakfast room with fireplace and a secret door to the garage and an elegant formal dining room are part of the open floor plan in the main house.
