A pair of ornately carved doors only hint at what lies in store at Casa Ladrillera, a five-bedroom home set on a quiet street in lively San Miguel de Allende in the central Mexico state of Guanajuato.

Inside, quality finishes, skilled workmanship and high-end style combine to reveal a sophisticated house in a class by itself. Outside, quatrefoil windows, draping greenery and wrought-iron railings add to the effect.

High ceilings and a blown-glass chandelier contribute to the charm of the living room.

Designed by architect Nicole Bisgaard, the house is entered through a well-lit, double-height foyer.

Sheltered under a wood beam ceiling, the formal living room centers on a stone fireplace, one of nine in the house. Bricks within the tall firebox are arranged in a chevron pattern, adding a touch of elegance. An artistic blown-glass chandelier hangs above.

Glass doors open to a tranquil lower courtyard where a stone walled waterfall fountain creates a focal point. An outdoor barbecue center with a sink is tucked under a second-floor balcony.

Multipurpose courtyards extend the living space outdoors.

A gently curved staircase with an iron railing leads up to a second courtyard awash in plantings.

A blue-tile swimming pool, lawn and a covered loggia with a fireplace create additional outdoor living space.

An expansive loggia sits along one side of the swimming pool.

The primary suite sits off the upper courtyard. Its freestanding bathtub looks out on a private garden. A mature mesquite tree add character to the yard.
