The Premier Real Estate Site for México
Quinta La Peregrina
Many dreams and promises went into making this property the breath-taking oasis it is today. Successive owners and builders of vision, beginning in the 1950s, left their mark, from Mexico’s foremost designer of interiors and textiles, who built on the foundations of a XVII Century villa, to the present owner who accomplished an extensive, three-year reconstruction program with style and quiet sensibility. Happily, although the property is equipped with every luxury and necessity for 21st Century living, it comfortably manages to retain its original charm and the gentle, romantic aura of a bygone age.
The 1200-square-meter residence rises from a natural promontory commanding a wide vista of the Valley of Temixco near the city of Cuernavaca. Landscaped, south-facing gardens with trees a hundred years old or more roll for 4,000 square meters in a constant delight of Jacarandas, Tabachines, Ficus, Palm trees, Tulipanes, Flame trees and an extraordinary, magnificent “Laurel de la India” tree. Indoors, exquisite decoration meets period charm to create exactly the right mood for every area of what must be Cuernavaca’s most splendid residence. Three guest suites, it counts a Master Suite, motor court for up to seven cars, surveillance and alarm systems,and air-conditioning.
Below the residence and its majestic forest of tall trees lies an additional 4,000-square-meter area of gently rolling countryside, terraced and walled with a guest house and space for a tennis court, which insures the privacy of the entire property.
