Luces de la Ciudad is everything you could want in a New Mexico vacation home. You can feel a reverence for nature and natural beauty in every inch of this home’s décor and construction. Huge window cover nearly all exterior walls and traditional stucco walls, soaring wood beams, and exquisite tile work embellish each spacious room.
The living room features a large stucco wood-burning fireplace with couches arranged for easy conversation. It’s a homey room with its thick beams, fire, and views of the open countryside. From this room, you can traverse sliding doors out to the deck with the magnificent view of Santa Fe and the Sangre de Cristo foothills.
Step down a few steps from the main living room and you enter the large TV room with large flat screen TV and plenty of places to curl up and watch a movie on the DVD or catch the news on cable. Every inch of this home is thoughtfully decorated to honor the culture of the Southwest and ensure guests’ comfort and pleasure.
Your first Luces de la Ciudad dining room is just above the living room and is surrounded by windows onto the deck. Six can comfortably sit around this large table. There’s also deck access where you’ll find a large gas grill for when you want to cook up some steaks for your guests some evening. It couldn’t be handier.
There’s also a second dining room with a huge farm-style table that seats eight. As you dine on your succulent cuisine you’ll have an unforgettable view out the picture window.
Conveniently located near both dining rooms is the Luces de la Ciudad kitchen, and oh what a kitchen it is. Continuing the handsome Southwestern decor, the kitchen offers every convenience from double wall ovens to wine rack and wine refrigerator, from expansive granite countertops to every appliance and pan you could need to prepare excellent meals for your guests. The archways, tile floors, and beamed ceiling may inspire you to try some of the favorite Spanish dishes of the region. Just beyond the kitchen is a full laundry room with plenty of room to sort out and care for your clothes.
After a day of skiing, shopping the exceptional local arts market, hiking, or touring famous local museums such as the Georgia O’Keefe Museum, your master retreat will look and feel like heaven. You’ll sink into your king-sized bed and drift off to sleep before the fire burning in your private adobe fireplace. Or, if during the day, you want some alone time, just grab a book from the large supply and curl up on the window seat.
