Guanajuato, nestled in the Sierra Madre at the geographic and spiritual center of Mexico, will soon become your heart’s home. A UNESCO historic site, this beautiful city highlights Mexico’s revolutionary and artistic past, while supporting a colorful, robust present. A former silver mining town, central Guanajuato is reserved for hardy walkers, with old mining tunnels serving cars, leaving steep, narrow cobblestone streets to pedestrians.
La Rosa Roja, located on Transversal del Tecolote, is perched near the top of historic Callejon Tecolote (“Owl’s Alley). The hike is well worth it, rewarding guests with exquisite views of the city below, and the Sierras surrounding the town. Joyful Mexican-style furnishings and décor providing American-style comfort complete your surroundings.
This 2-bedroom, 3-bath home has been completely renovated, with all new systems, furnishings and décor. Enter at the rooftop level, and note the huge terrace where you’ll want to entertain, or simply bask in peace and quiet as you soak in the views. Fully tiled in traditional Mexican patterns, the roof is divided into three zones: the laundry area (with separate line outside for “solar drying,”) the main entertainment area, and an open-air room to provide separation for reading, dining, or even sleeping under the stars.
On the main floor, enjoy a spacious, airy salon, measuring 22-feet long. Separate seating areas in this bright room flanked by two balconies include a great reading area with oversized equipales; wall space decorated with books, music, and a main seating space with couch and two overstuffed chairs surrounding the tiled gas fireplace. The small custom-designed office space just off the main salon, is equipped with a writing desk, shelves, and wireless connection for your convenience. The dining hall greets guests just past the main entrance, opening to a Mexican–style kitchen with all-new stainless appliances, traditional cookware and dishware, and yet another balcony. A full-sized bathroom completes the top floor—ideal for washing up before dinner, but equally usable for extra guests staying in the main salon.
The sleeping area downstairs boasts two master suites, both with comfortable queen-sized pillow-top beds, drawers and private closets for storage. The front suite, offers a deep corner soaking tub, custom tiled, with matching sink and commode. The back suite, offers beautiful Mexican antique bed and armario, with a cala lily/sunflower-themed bathroom, also featuring a soaking tub. Both baths have fantastic water pressure—a real plus in Guanajuato. Unique to this home is “La Cava,” a cool, cozy wine cellar and reading area, also located on the downstairs level for your relaxation and enjoyment.
Owned by Americans with an appreciation for comfort, all bedding and linens are of natural fibers. There are easy-to-use gas fireplaces gracing the main salon, and gas heaters in each bedroom suite for those rare cool winter nights.
