Charming two bedroom walled adobe home with beautiful courtyards and gardens just a short walk from the university and convention center. Custom Saltillo tiles in the fully-equipped kitchen and bath, and original hardwood floors throughout. Space includes a fully-equpped kitchen, washer and dryer, dishwasher, and wifi. Enjoy the tranquility of this Southwestern oasis while being in the center of everything Las Cruces has to offer.
We just bought this place and are fixing it up so everything will be perfect for our guests. Will have brand new Serta Perfect Sleeper queen size beds in both bedrooms, with all new bedding, towels, pots, pans, dishes, etc. Plus waiting on a new Ashley sleeper sofa for the living room to be delivered. Thus we opened up dates starting in late September. New pictures with updated furniture and artwork coming soon... :)
A little bit more about the property:
90-year old authentic adobe house set just a short walk from the university and convention center, formerly owned by a local artist so creative touches fill the home and garden. Great place for enjoying a tranquil garden oasis while still being in the middle of town. Filled with custom details like tile niches, hardwood floors, and custom wood shutters. Experience a true piece of Southwestern history.
We live about 15 minutes from the property, so we are accessible if you need anything, but also will not be around constantly to bug you.
New Mexico State University is just a two-minute walk away, and the location is ideal as this is near the center of campus where the galleries and bookstores are located. The convention center of Las Cruces is about 10 minute walk or two minute drive, set at the Northwest edge of NMSU. Downtown Las Cruces has a great farmer's and crafts market every Saturday morning that can't be missed. The historic town of Mesilla is a ten minute drive to the west, and fifteen minutes to the east is the dramatic pink-tinged Organ Mountain range, now part of the new Desert Peaks National Monument, which abounds with hiking opportunities such as Dripping Springs and Soledad Canyon. White Sands National Monument and the Missile Museum on the White Sands Army Base are a short drive out Highway 70. Continue further into the mountains and you reach the Lincoln National Forest with Ruidoso and Cloudcroft, both rather beautiful. About an hour and a half drive north, you can visit beautiful Gila National Forest (Silver City, Pinos Altos) or Hillsboro, Chloride, or Kingston (old silver mining/ghost towns), also the Gila Cliff Dwellings are well worth the drive to explore.
This area isn't known for great public transit, there is a bus stop a block away, but it only runs once per hour. Still, this is a great location to explore Las Cruces and NMSU by foot, and there is free on-site parking as well as plenty of street parking.
