Maybe it’s just wishful thinking after months of wearing wool sweaters to survive winter in New England, but looking at this adobe home for sale in Las Cruces, I swear I feel warmer. Something about the sandy walls, wooden ceiling beams, and the pops of orange and red throughout the home just acts like a dose of sunshine.
The residence itself is a sizable 3,669 square feet and feels almost like a courtyard you can live in, thanks to antique light fixtures made of iron and glass, reddish-brown Saltillo tile floors, plenty of French doors, and lots of Pella wood windows that fill the home with natural light. Built-in bookshelves, tree trunk ceiling beams, and a trio of fireplaces throughout the home help keep it as cozy by night as it is cool and breezy by day.
The bathrooms deserve a moment of appreciation, too: Covered in ceramic Talavera tiles, they both feature in-shower windows or skylights, meaning you can soak in some Vitamin D even as you take your morning shower.
And that’s not even all this Southwestern estate has to offer. The 2.76 acres also contain an in-ground pool (ooh), above ground hot tub (aah), a workshop, spacious patio, grounds growing more than 100 pecan trees, and a pool house for the guests the fortunate future owners of this home will surely be hosting.
