Las Cruces, New Mexico is located in the expansive Mesilla Valley of southern New Mexico. The city is like an oasis in an otherwise arid landscape with palm trees and pecan orchards. Most of the architecture is typical of the desert southwest – adobe, Santa Fe style, Spanish style or modern neutral new construction.
So this gem of a house stood out to me when I was recently checking the Las Cruces listings:
I’ve stayed in Las Cruces before and absolutely loved it. We’ve considered it as a place to relocate, but decided it was just too far from a major airport. (But that doesn’t mean I don’t still peruse the local real estate!)
I am SMITTEN with this colorful craftsman:
Currently listed for $290,000, this cute cottage has 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in 2303 square feet.
It was built in 1918, but has been extensively updated and impeccably cared for.
This place is RIPE with color!
The bedrooms are extremely spacious:
So much to excite the senses…
…but not overdone. It’s classy and comfortable.
Just a gorgeous, artistic home filled with custom touches…
The back garden & garage:
(love the painted utility pole!)
For all the details on this colorful home, see the complete listing.
Another one of those artistic souls must live here!
