The desert has inspired some great works of art. It most certainly did in this amazing, one-of-a-kind Rams Hill home, in a gorgeous setting in the spectacular Anza-Borrego desert. Rayos de Luz has distinguished history. In 1990 it received a Home of the Year Award of Excellence from San Diego Home and Garden Magazine, Recognition of Design Excellence and Creative Lifestyle. In recent years it has been extensively and carefully remodeled by the owner-designer, with architect Jane Morley and renowned metal-sculptor John Richen. The result is a sophisticated but earthy, gallery-like space meant to accommodate and entertain any group, from small family to large party, in style and comfort. The radiused great room has a beamed tongue-in-groove ceiling that draws the eye through engineered glass panels to the stunning desert and mountain panorama in daylight, and to the striking cylindrical fireplace at night. The lounge-lobby atmosphere offers several comfortable gathering spots, along with kitchen and bar seating. Glass doors slide wide for indoor-outdoor living. This semi-rotunda is surrounded by a dramatic half circle gallery hallway that leads to four bedrooms and three bathrooms, all outfitted to perfection. The master suite features a private sitting room, walnut closets, and motorized window shades. The master bath rivals that of the most luxurious spa with a freestanding custom tub, walk-in glass shower, heated floors, on-demand hot water, and a lovely courtyard view. The atmosphere of a fine hotel is extended for your guests, too. Both guest rooms have state-of-the-art en-suite bathrooms with exceptional tile work and fixtures. One has a separate sitting/media room that could be used as a fourth bedroom or office. Both have beautiful patio or desert views. There s even an outdoor shower! Outdoors, the ambience expands with extravagant water features, tasteful landscape and numerous generous patios for entertaining, as well as shady, secluded spots for solitary sunset moments. Outdoor sculptures and hardscape include a fanciful nod to ancient architecture, almost as timeless as the desert itself. As night falls, exquisite custom lighting, inside and out, transforms this magic place, and you ll know you ve found your Rays of Light.
