Rustic Elegance in Los Cabos
With miles of white sand beaches on the tip of the peninsula,
this spectacular location is only outdone by its ideal climate. An easy two hour flight from several US cities, Los Cabos presents itself as the perfect destination. Part of El Dorado’s vibrant community, this luxurious second home is part of a member-only resort that includes unequaled recreational opportunities and exceptional amenities.
The rich architectural history of the area is reflected in the gracious entry and courtyard fountain, lined in traditional blue and white Talavera tiles. Stepping inside, the 3,000 square foot interior reflects a distinct sense of place, while retaining a clean, modern sensibility. Architectural features of dark wood contrast nicely with the lighter toned walls. Interior features include lattice topped arched windows and sculpture niches, as well as a custom stone fireplace surround and kitchen range hood.
Travertine counters and natural stone floors topped with nubby, hand woven floorcoverings add warmth and texture. Pulling inspiration from the deep blue sea and bright green landscaping, fabrics and artwork add punches of color to the naturalistic, tranquil palette.
Many of the signature furnishings were made in Mexico and reflect a collected, timeless appeal. Accessories and lighting were locally sourced, with an eye to highlighting some of the traditional crafts of the area. Hammered silver lamp bases and macramé ottomans add charm and blend well with rustic Mexican pine furniture. Comfortable wood stools have just the right touch of iron accents and rush seats.
