PROJECT FUENTES is Zoë's exciting new build-to-suit project in Colonia Atascadero, San Miguel de Allende.

Four beautiful, light-filled, custom homes will be constructed in the heart of Colonia Atascadero, a residential neighborhood known for its community, wide streets and charm. With 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths, these homes offer open floor plans, gardens, parking, and many special touches, such as boveda ceilings, cantera columns and arches, and artisan-carved fireplaces. Each house will be unique with its own distinct character, yet blend into the block and complement the neighborhood.

The PROJECT  FUENTES houses are currently being offered as a PRE–sale, through Agave Sotheby's. Buyers will have the opportunity to choose finishes and be part of the creative process. Zoë creates a collaborative environment that makes building a house an enjoyable and fulfilling process. In addition, her years of experience in Mexico, her deep knowledge of available materials, and her long- standing relationships with local artisans facilitate the creation of these unique customized homes.​

Below is a list of what is included in Casa Miel. The other 3 houses have similar lists, with slight variations.

Build-to-Suit

The process takes approximately one year. Zoë is known for being on time as well as on budget. A buyer’s individual requirements and preferences guide Zoë’s work. The buyer may choose many of the finishes, within a specified range. Examples:

  • Color of cantera stone

  • Flooring 


  • Bathroom and kitchen tile 


  • Bathroom and kitchen counter surfaces 


  • Bathroom and kitchen faucets, hardware, accessories 


  • Carpentry design 

  • Roof palapa materials 


  • Rail design 


  • Column and arch material 


  • Fireplace design and material 


  • Paint colors

 

Throughout the construction process, Zoë sends progress reports with photos to buyers not in San Miguel. Many times, she has successfully worked with clients long-distance to select finishes. If the buyer is in San Miguel during the building process, Zoë meets regularly with him or her. 
Payments are made at several stages during the construction process, providing a degree of flexibility in financing that is unusual in Mexico. 
At the end of the year, buyers have the house of their dreams.

Testimonials

Zoë Siegel is one of the most unusual builders I have ever worked with. Her most important characteristic is her integrity. Her desire to deliver an excellent house that her client will love goes above and beyond what anyone would expect from a builder. It is clear that her crew has tremendous regard and respect for her. They are very responsive to her requests and seem to be very happy to produce good results for her and I am sure it is because she treats them with respect for their talents. 

There is no question that Zoë will not leave any aspect of the job incomplete until it meets her standards, which are at least equal to or exceeds my own. The entire experience was a joy every day.

Every time I open my front door, I'm amazed by the oasis of light and space that Zoë has created. She has taken the best elements of Mexican architecture and sculpted them into a warm and welcoming home that is modern and completely sympathetic to its environment. Although it was very late in the designing and building process when we first laid eyes on Zoë's project, she was wonderfully open to listening to suggestions that suited our preferences and tastes. She brings her creative talent to both designing and problem-solving and is a joy to work with.

Zoë was on time and on budget. She listened to our requests, found creative ways to fulfill them, and was a delightful collaborator. In a milieu where horror stories prevail (building homes in Mexico), working with Zoë was working with a true artistic professional who also became a friend. Highest marks, fullest recommendations.

– Phil May

                           

Working with Zoë Siegel on our home was a dream come true. Our beautiful house was completed on time and UNDER budget. This is not a typical story you hear about other builders. She was a joy to work with. She listened to everything we said, made gentle suggestions that were in harmony with what we wanted but BETTER because she's an artist and knows what will work. Our home is lovely, comfortable, bright, and cheerful, and it looks like it cost a lot more to build than it did. Friends tell their friends about our house. It's all true. After working with Zoë, I would recommend her to anyone, and I would have her build me another house without reservation.

When I walked into one of Zoë's houses, I knew I wanted one! Her clean aesthetic of open spaces, light, modern but with traditional Mexican touches moved me to put down roots here. And working with her and her crew – long-distance – was a truly pain-free experience. Unheard of!!!

– Kathy Sulkes

 

We had an excellent experience working with Zoë Siegel on the design and construction of a house in San Miguel. She worked patiently with us long-distance on the design. Then, working with us by phone and internet, she served as our eyes and ears through much of the construction. Moreover, Zoë and her builder provided a realistic cost estimate at the outset and kept to it.

– Kristen Lankester

 

We were first attracted to building our home with Zoë after seeing previous homes built by her and after talking to those homeowners. The process was flawless, and most of the communication was by email and photographs of progress. Her builder had a core of workers that was his permanent team. He and his team were diligent, polite and followed through on instructions and plans. The project came through on budget and on time. We were very satisfied with the whole process. The house is full of light and lifts us up every time that we arrive in it. We love it!
