Opulent Mexican Mansion is Tough Sell Amid Drug Violence

New, 7 comments

With Mexico's seemingly endless cycle of drug-related violence in recent years, former expatriate strongholds have seen their real estate markets hit hard, particularly in combination with the effect of the recession on potential second home buyers from the U.S. and Canada. Still, that hasn't kept some of Mexico's finest private homes from coming to market, like this towering mansion near the UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Miguel de Allende. Listed for $6.25M, the 19,000-square-foot mansion has a four-story central atrium with domed skylight, seven bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, views over the historic city center, an elevator, and a pair of ground-floor garages.
