What to do with 50 hectares, over 100 acres resting in the High Desert of Central Mexico. Both commercial and residential, with two road access. Mineral de Pozos, just outside San Miguel de Allende 45 minutes, the lure and authenticity of the Wild West now catching on. A town set on a river brings to mind the expression ‘that still water runs deep’. The stillness has been here for decades. Often referred to as a ‘ghost town', the special attraction is the big sky, the sunshine, the cobblestone streets, the enormous maguey cactus, the mountains and the grand ruins left as vestige to the a once wealthy gold and silver mining town.
After three and a half years walking the terrain, living the culture and learning about ways to build with the vernacular caliche stone, I say ‘what-to-do’ is precisely to ‘replicate the ruins', updated only with a few green concepts like recycled grey water, solar panels run without batteries, water catchment, and candlelight elegance with a Wild West flare. The nights are uninterrupted by a star parade in every direction and the candlelight is the smooth and quiet transition I am looking, rather, yearning for. In the complicated world we all live in, I see the future allowing for change and a slower, simpler, more romantic lifestyle.
Recycled pine floors, split log mixed with the white caliche exteriors, tile or copper roofs, walking paths lined with rosemary bushes, lavender and plume grasses. Large cactus sprinkled about like friendly monsters, the shade of one or two pepper trees swaying in the wind, vertical gardens of tomatoes, squash, cucumbers, green beans and more crawling up the stone privacy walls. A lot large enough to accommodate the organic hen house and chicken run extraordinaire for our daily egg needs. On the far side, a stable for the pure-bread horses hooking up to the horse path moving through the Pozos outback.
Commercial property for sale does not need to be the Walmarts, the Hyatts, the Starbucks, it can easily and better be the romantic large parcels for elegant, sustainable living. And, when I say sustainable, I mean food and environmental consciousness but also, and more importantly, sustaining joy and family and connection to the earth and animals and the sun and sky and stars. I invite in this paragraph, anyone with the spirit of adventure and the willingness to embrace a different way to live and wake up in the morning.
