Casa Legorreta is on the market for the first time ever! Named after the late internationally renowned architect Ricardo Legorreta, this home is true starchitecture.
Ricardo Legorreta is the first Latin Gold Medal winner from the American Institute of Architects. This prestigious recognition is annually awarded exclusively to an individual who has created a distinguished body of architecture. Legorreta was also widely recognized for designing Hollywood producer Joel Silver’s home, now on the market for $52 million.
This home stands on a spacious double lot in San Miguel de Allende, a UNESCO World Heritage village.
The owners and Legorreta collaborated in the design, bringing a spectacular vision to life – Casa Legorreta. Legorreta’s design style, illustrated throughout this estate, is best described as delicately balanced between austerity and generosity.
When taking the first steps into this home, visitors are welcomed into a temazcal-like foyer where you are guided by the broken light of the colonnade at the far end. The entryway leads you to a central courtyard of paved stone bound by a water-rill-like fountain sourced by a Legorreta water stair.
The house is designed to seamlessly transition from indoor to outdoor living, a popular design in a temperate city. The living room features large sliding glass doors which lead to the outdoor terrace and gardens beyond.
The first floor of this two-story home is where the family may gather around a spacious dining room that opens to gardens on both sides. Additionally, this floor features the kitchen, staff quarters, and a wood-burning fireplace. A dining terrace overlooks the swimming pool.
Just a story above is the master suite offering a view of the city’s iconic Parroquia church right from your pillow. The master bathroom encompasses an all-marble dual sink that adjoins a dressing room. The master suite’s glass-parapet balcony overlooks the pool. An in-suite library and desk feature a Frank Gehry Cross Check™ chair, part of the legacy-worthy furniture included with this home.
Two additional en-suite guest rooms complete the second floor, one with a large private terrace.
The home faces a street named the 11th prettiest street in the world by Architectural Digest in 2022, with a roof terrace offering views framed by palm trees of the famous Parroquia church. Hosting an art studio and a trellis-covered lounge, the roof terrace can be easily converted into a 4th bedroom as it features a half bath.
Best of all, the environment is as noteworthy as the home! San Miguel de Allende has been placed at #1 on Condé Nast Traveler’s Best Cities in the World for 5 years! Condé Nast Traveler describes San Miguel de Allende as “a hub for expat artists” as it is “known for its Spanish Colonial Architecture and colorful facades.” Those with an appreciation for art and culture will enjoy hours worth of galleries and pop-up shops.
The lifestyle of San Miguel de Allende, combined with the iconic designs of a treasured architectural genius, makes Casa Legorreta a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. No other Legorreta exists globally with a pedigree as prestigious as Casa Legorreta!
