At nearly 14,000 square feet, 11 bedrooms, each ensuite, three kitchens, and 24/7 onsite staff, Casa Hyder is a magnificent Colonial style estate the likes of which are unparalleled in San Miguel de Allende. A 2/3 acre oasis in the heart of the city center, this magical hacienda and its sprawling gardens offer gracious living from a bygone era that is nothing less than a once in a lifetime experience.
Beyond the unassuming front door you are enveloped by an enchanted world; stone walls pulse with verdant ivy, climbing roses, colorful bougainvillea, trumpet vines, and rows of stately cypress and jacarandas. A towering mesquite tree acts as a canopy of ancient limbs offering dappled sunlight as you stroll down one of the many cobbled paths. Pathways lead to velvety lawns, a meditation garden – a maze of neatly trimmed hedges – soothing fountains, a tiled pool, and a multitude of charming outdoor living areas ~ all designed for ultimate relaxation, a place to unwind and reflect.
A few steps up from the 60×40 foot tiled pool is a grand loggia, or outdoor sala, sumptuous lounging areas with overstuffed pillows, exotic fabrics, and a bar; a perfect spot for enjoying a cool drink. For al fresco dining, the loggia is grounded by a stately antique dining table that can easily accommodate 18. Meandering from the pool area one finds themselves intrigued by narrow, wending paths happening upon quaint stone altars, nichos, and hidden stairwells to rooftop terrazas that offer sweeping views of city lights, Las Monjas, the Parroquia, and the distance hills and mountains.
Once inside and locally referred to as a “living museum,” this veritable treasure exudes old world charm, a dreamlike labyrinth of rooms, all exquisitely decorated, intimate, cozy, and filled with an eclectic blend of 17th century art, artifacts and collectibles from around the globe. Layers of colorful Indian and Afghan textiles effortlessly drape over chaises and tabletops, Moroccan lanterns swing from boveda ceilings, libraries, terrazas, dining spaces, quiet sitting nooks beckon; all welcoming and unassuming, nothing pretentious but rather, an owner’s incomparable eye for design, beauty and most of all, gracious, easy living.
At Casa Hyder nothing has been spared: For an unforgettable wedding, family reunion, or just a great escape, a lifetime of cherished memories is yours. Indulge yourself in the magical dream that is Casa Hyder and ultimately, quintessential San Miguel.
