Great Escapes: San Miguel de Allende, Mexico
After Andrew Fisher and Jeffry Weisman transformed a former tannery in this artsy Mexican mountain town into their vacation home, the San Francisco–based designers were so inspired by the project that they launched a furniture line named after it. The new Casa Acanto collection (see “Permanent Vacation,” page 128) comprises pieces based on those found in their five-bedroom walled refuge, which is especially suited for entertaining. The property features lush gardens that are lit at night, fountains, and a saltwater pool so guests can take full advantage of the region’s temperate, sunny climate. Adding to the home’s charm are touches such as an L-shaped layout incorporating a light-filled courtyard, stone and tile floors, thick doors of reclaimed pine, windows imported from Spain, and an outdoor sala with a wood-burning fireplace and an Argentinian grill for cooking. The home comes with the full-time services of two housekeepers and a cook, as well as a gardener.
