Las Cruces house description

RETREAT ON HALFMOON DRIVE

SUPERIOR LOCATION — The home is a lovely property nestled in the quiet neighborhood of Crescent Park, located right in the center of the Las Cruces downtown area. The neighborhood was built in the 1960s and is maintained with beautiful lawns and shrubbery, where neighbors take pride in their properties.

MODERN COMFORTS — Completely updated over the past few years, the Main House, and the Cabanita studio apartment in the back garden, both have central heating and refrigerated air conditioning, on-demand hot water, beautiful hardwood floors, and completely updated kitchens and bathrooms for spacious and comfortable living. The Main House and the Cabanita are both equipped with cable TV/NetFlix, and high-speed Internet service, and we have furnished the accommodations with books and other reading materials. Laundry facilities and produces are provided, and the kitchen is turn-key furnished with an assortment of serving dishes, cooking and baking utensils, and cookbooks for the culinary creative guest on holiday. You will find the pantry closet filled with an assortment of cleaning and other products normally associated with modern living.

GARDENS & AMENITIES — The property is surrounded by manicured lawns and gardens, fruit trees, shade trees, and a wide variety of shrubs and flowers. We plant and maintain a large vegetable garden each spring/summer for our guests to eat from, and all are also welcome to eat the fruit off our wonderful trees as they ripen throughout the summer and fall.

CULTURAL SPOTS — Crescent Park is a short drive to the NMSU campus, the Performing Arts Theatre, City Hall, the City Library, the County and Federal courthouses and the wonderful downtown mall, the center of activity on Saturdays where the weekly open market is held. The Mall is also home to many art galleries and museums exhibiting local tradition and color, bookstores, a full-service spa, and other establishments. There are public swimming pools and tennis courts only a minute’s walk from the neighborhood. Historic Old Mesilla is only a 5-minute drive away, where guests can spend a lazy afternoon wandering through shops, museums, and other attractions and learn more about the history of this wonderful area.

DINING PLEASURE — The neighborhood is near many interesting dining establishments. Japanese, Thai, Vietnamese, and Chinese food restaurants are just around the corner, A Touch of Belgium breakfast and lunch restaurant is only minutes away as are The Bistro and Zeffiro’s, other wonderful dining venues just a few blocks away on the Mall, and the French Rendezvous Cafe-Diner provides authentic French cuisine and pastries just a short distance away. The Black Box Theater and The Rio Grande Theatre, gathering places for local drama and artistic color, are also on the Mall and just walking distance from the Terrace. Historic Old Mesilla and the beautiful New Mexico State University campus are only minutes away by car, as are Mt. View and Memorial Medical, the city’s two hospital, medical and rehabilitation facility centers.

SECURITY AND SAFETY
Although Las Cruces in general, and Crescent Park in particular, are extremely safe environments, the home is equipped with an online security system and the back yard is walled for privacy.

CULTURAL DIVERSITY
Las Cruces is considered by many to be one of America’s “big” small towns—one of the most international communities anywhere, with families here from more than 90 countries. Las Cruces is also home to one of the largest, most integrated GLBT-PFLAG communities in this part of the country. For it’s population size, few other communities in the American Southwest are so diverse and cosmopolitan.

YEAR-AROUND BEAUTY — Our accommodations are comfortable and affordable and located in the heart of one of the Borderland’s most historic and romantic towns. Please make our retreat on Halfmoon Drive, in Crescent Park in the downtown area a destination on your next visit to lovely Las Cruces.
