Why we have a crush on this property

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.
