Calle Aldama, CentroSan Miguel de Allende, Mexico, $6,995,000
The historic UNESCO World Heritage village of San Miguel de Allende hosts only one Starchitect-designed residence in the entire city, and this is it—Casa Legorreta, named after the late internationally-renowned Mexican architect Ricardo Legorreta, the first Latin AIA Gold Medal winner.
On the market for the first time ever, the owners worked directly with Legorreta on the design of this home, completing it on a double lot in 2005. Architectural aficionados know that owning a Legorreta home is like owning a Frank Lloyd Wright—they are rare architectural jewels that seldom reach the market. In fact, at time of this editorial, the only other Legorreta on the market globally is Hollywood producer Joel Silver’s Brentwood Legorreta estate priced at $52MM USD.
This home maximizes the indoor-outdoor lifestyle so popular in this temperate city, with a seamless flow to the outdoor terrace and gardens beyond, including both open and covered terraces boasting a wood burning, fireplace-anchored dining terrace overlooking the swimming pool.
The trellis-covered rooftop lounge sports astounding views of the nearby 17th century Parroquia church which serves as the visual termination of the home’s façade-fronting Aldama Street, voted by Architectural Digest in 2022 as the 11th prettiest street in the world. No other Legorreta exists globally with such a pedigree.
