Casa de Luz—the House of Light—earned its name because the California architect-builder who built the home four years ago oriented the house for the sun: great morning sun in the kitchen and dining, and great all-day winter south-facing sun throughout most of the home.

This corner-lot home proves ideal for those looking for one-level-living since the primary master suite is on the ground floor and offers outdoor terrace spaces off two sets of sliding doors, great garden views, good southern sun and a separate tub-and-shower dual-sink bathroom. The American-style great room plan flows together with the open kitchen, all wrapping around the central courtyard, part of it covered for sunny afternoon garden viewing. Upstairs, two en suite bedrooms are separated by a solarium-style gym for light-filled workouts, with access to the city-wide and Parroquia-view roof terrace built like a garden aviary. And throughout the home you’ll see the stained-glass windows of a master craftsman who has done stained windows for Graceland and many of the churches around Mexico. That artistic touch further warms this Mexican contemporary home boasting whitewashed beams, tejamanil ceilings, rustic-cut travertine marble floors, and solid-surface countertops throughout.

Technical details abound, too: the home features whole-house filtration, black-out shades, a Rinnai heater, all screened windows, factory-built smooth-glide sliding doors, garage with plentiful storage & laundry, and an automotive-painted bright cherry-red Samsung refrigerator reminiscent of your favorite ’58 Corvette!

The comfort of this finely-crafted home will charm the checkbook right out of your pocket, so be prepared to fall in love on your first visit!
