Architectural design and spacious gardens give the small central Mexican town of San Miguel de Allende its indisputable charm. The same could be said of a $4 million compound in the historic center near one of the city’s landmark green spaces.
Casa Las Palmas at Solano 81, Centro, across from Benito Juarez Park dates to the late 1990s when then-owner Dolores Gazzotti turned her hand to designing a home that reflects a blend of European, art deco, Asian and Mexican Colonial accents.
Gardens with mature plants and palm trees play a key role in creating a tranquil refuge within one of the country’s most picturesque and popular cities.
According to those who knew her, Gazzotti personally designed the arched doors and decorative panels and shutters of the house. She imported Italian furniture and art that are still in the house today. The eclectic interior design is hidden behind the home’s traditional San Miguel colors.
Inside, the rich mix of design is on full display. Entryway and living rooms feature Asian accents such as murals, large vases, and crane sculptures that are larger than life. The en suite bathrooms in two bedrooms on the first floor are a step up from ordinary tiles. Glittering blue mosaic columns in one and intricately patterned green tiles in the other strike an opulent note.
Decorative details adorn the home’s four bathrooms.
A beamed ceiling tops the home office.
