Nestled into the mountainside high above the sea, a private enclave of 14 homes, Las Haciendas has become one of Villas Del Mar’s most prestigious neighborhoods. Over centuries of time, the Mexican culture has created beautiful, historical homes that engage the senses, and here we have echoed this through limitless views from indoor and outdoor living spaces that combine the warm desert climate with cool ocean breezes. Fashioned with the masterful craftsmanship and timeless architecture of Old World Mexico and resulting from a two-year collaboration with famed residential architect Barry Berkus, this is Las Haciendas.
Every room in the ultra-luxurious Hacienda takes full advantage of the magnificent placement of these homes for gracious living and entertaining with five different dining areas throughout the 2-story Hacienda. The main dining room, with clerestory lighting, arches, columns and domes, serves as a nobel backdrop to any social gathering.
The living room is designed around the spectacular view. Five large bi-fold doors literally bring the seascape to your feet and high, beamed ceilings increase the airy feeling of bringing the outdoors in.
The expansive showcase kitchen is designed for bustling activity and informal gatherings. Multiple sinks, oversized range and refrigerator , kitchen island and countertop bar, all support a lifestyle that revolves around flavor and aroma. For special occasions, a separate prep kitchen has been added to serve as a staging area for catering and party events. The service staff has been given a private entry, with separate and discrete circulation paths to help with the hosting of any celebration.
The master bedroom and guest bedroom located on the upper floor are expansive retreats, which encourage lazy afternoons on the shaded balconies. Gracious bathrooms are trimmed in stone and tile with oversized showers and vanities. The master bath has an elegant jacuzzi tub and the guest bath has a shower and an ocean view balcony.
The pool level is connected to the upper level by way of an elevator or two grand staircases. Downstairs you will find two private guest bedrooms with adjoining bathrooms. These intimately designed spaces create a sanctuary for rest and relaxation.
A covered poolside dining area has been designed to celebrate the gatherings of family and friends. Sweeping ocean views and a complete array of outdoor amenities combine to create the perfect backdrop for any event. This expansive outdoor living space includes a fireplace, bar and grilling area and a warming kitchen.
The pool level features a free form pool with rock wall and five water fountains overlooking the Sea of Cortez. Meticulously designed to soothe body and mind, the pool has a heated spa, under water benches and steps for water-soaking. For intimate evenings, a stone fire-pit is ideal for enjoying after dinner drinks and stargazing.
