Vast New Horizons
Vast New Horizons
One-of-a-kind the world over in concept and construction engineering, Casa Nomada speaks ofthe peace, privacy, and privilege of place, located in the center of San Miguel’s most prestigious country-side development, Candelaria, just five minutes outside San Miguel de Allende. CasaNomada’s design ensures that incredible vistas and direct connection to nature are its lasting heritage.
The home’s entrance facing East only hints of the scale of the living space to come. White rocks from Mineral de Pozos become orange at dawn as the sun rises over the Picacho Mountains in an unimpeded view toward the sunrise. The landscape leading to the house contains the best specimens of the region in creative xeriscapes.
It’s upon stepping into the home’s foyer and looking toward the two-story windows facing West that one understands what is meant by the desired creation of a dialogue between nature and house…where the interior and the exterior become one… where sunlight and landscape become the backdrop for living in this most luxurious house and serene space designed by award-winning architect Mario Lopez.
Casa Nomada is divided into two living pavilions that anchor the vast horizon. The main pavilion upon entering contains the stunning proportions of living room, dining area and kitchen, all flowing together on polished black marble, where dazzling two story windows open onto the grand veranda sheltering the outdoor living area, which steps down to the lap pool and beyond to beckoning outer gardens. The master suite on the ground floor of the southern pavilion is connected in privacy by an outdoor patio and interior corridor with stairway which leads to the second story, comprising a guest room and study with terrace, over-looking the olive and citrus tree orchard.
Vineyards boarder the property to the south and west. Over 1.9 hectares of this estate remain undeveloped. Casa Nomada calls for settling down and creating your own lifestyle legacy in the use of this land with its unimpeded views. Could yours be the dream of owning a vineyard? Or a flowing water-works feature with ponds or perhaps a spectacular guest home and pavilion…maybe all of this combined? Others might think of creative days in sun-drenched studios or a competitive game of tennis. This land will call your dreams to life.
Completed in 2020, Casa Nomada was designed and constructed with the inspiration of creating a sustainable home while capturing the beauty and serenity of Candelaria. Today it represents the finest in materials combined with the most innovative technology in construction and landscaping available the world-over.
