The Premier Real Estate Site for México
Hacienda Las Luciérnagas
There is a lookout point on Hacienda Las Luciérnagas, behind the main house on a rocky outcrop where one can directly experience the weather – such as feeling the morning fog, as one sees the distant mountains slip into view for miles around. This is one of the dramatic surprises for visitors to this handsome Hacienda, lovingly built in the style and tradition of Mexican country estates.
Another surprise comes at night when Fireflies for which the Hacienda is named,
flicker among the twinkling lights of a nearby town. The Hacienda compound is
built on several levels with an unconsecrated private Chapel, and a large stone-
enclosed Courtyard for festive events, and for dancing beneath the stars. The
ancient village of Tepoztlan with its mysterious mountains, is a stone´s throw away.
There are two separate, unique Residences. One with 6 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths,
2 spacious living rooms, swimming pool and lounging area with mesmerizing
views. The second, with 4 bedrooms, 5 1/2 baths, games room, chef´s kitchen
and a wonderful outdoor terrace with grill, lap pool and jacuzzi.
The walled property covers 7 1/2 acres of hilltop forests with a 1-kilometer hiking trail,
tennis court and private sitting areas among cactus gardens and varied colorful vegetation.
Included are extensive Staff quarters and ample parking. There is an impressive rainfall
gathering system with above and below ground storage cisterns, and solar heated electricity.
This tastefully-decorated Hacienda is perfect for a Boutique Hotel and Gala
Events, with Mexico City only an hour away and Cuernavaca 20 minutes down
the road. Dramatic mountains on all sides are constant sentinels day and night,
setting the stage for this stunning, one of a kind Hacienda.
