Accessible to Centro Historico in historic San Miguel de Allende, Villa ITO is a 20 twenty-minute drive that takes you past small family-run farms nestled between fields of nopales, cornfields, mesquite trees, and sage. Turning left off the main road you come to a narrow lane that bends gradually up a slight incline into the Valle. The road widens to reveal the heart of the valley and Villa ITO.
Blending with the muted browns and greys of the rising landscape, Villa ITO is an expansive 2.5-hectare (6 acre) property that merges authentic Mexican accents, modern concrete construction, and forms of Japanese design that emphasize the uncluttered space and the aesthetic relationship to nature. This one-of-a-kind design reflects the myriad passions of its creators: A former US music executive who turned away from his career and together with his wife became hoteliers while committing themselves to philanthropy, filmmaking and a traditional mezcal brand. The property is bisected by a serpentine creek bed that lays dry in summer and flows freely during the rainy season and a century-old hand-laid stone wall, a leftover from the former ranch. The main home, surrounded by a 20-foot textured concrete wall is built upon a flat 570 sq meters. Its hacienda double doors are captivating as one enters the enclosed courtyard featuring fountains and 80-year-old olive trees. Through these doors is the large, open living area anchored by a large double-sided fireplace. A massive island sets off the main living room from the chef’s kitchen. These main windows look into a backyard landscaped in an uncluttered, zen-like garden. Opening the large sliding doors, the living area and backyard become a flowing indoor-outdoor experience. Large stones, mature bamboo, fountains, and acacia trees outline the space and accent a perfectly framed lap pool. Two large bedrooms with access to the gardens complete the downstairs. On the second floor, the primary bedroom boasts a 7.6 m (25 ft) vaulted ceiling, and fireplace. Stepping out onto the private balcony one can see the extraordinary view of the entire valley. An oversized walk-in closet, with custom woodworking cabinetry leads to the bathroom with its freestanding tub and rain shower. The home also includes a two-car garage and a large walk-in wine cellar. The home was constructed over four years with the guiding concept for the property to be expanded and changeable. A short walk from the main house is a guest house, artist loft or workshop complete with a full kitchen and bathroom. The property includes three large water storage systems, satellite internet, well water, rain catchment systems, electricity and is pre-wired for simple solar installations. Included in the sale is a jeep truck, and management company that seamlessly handle staff and expense payments.
