The natural beauty surrounding this stunningcompound, situated on 50+ acres adjacent to the Santa Fe National Forest, is unrivaled. Entering through private gates the paved driveway,lined with gorgeous rock retaining walls, winds past the stable, tennis court and riding arena into the round, bricked motor court, which is shared by both the Main House and Guest House.
A flagstone walkway with sitting areas and
undisturbed views of the National Forest rising to the Ski Basin on one side and xeriscaped gardens on the other leads to the formal entrance of the Main House.
The family entrance to the Main House from the motor court and two-car garage is up a staircase, with handmade wrought iron handrails, through an enchanting, European inspired,stone-lined vestibule with a state-of-the-art mechanical room and refrigerated wine cellar.
The supremely outfitted kitchen is designed for simplicity and ease of use with both a china pantry and a food pantry close at hand. The kitchen conveniently opens into a family dining area, a family room, and adjacent to the formal dining room.
Custom details are abundant throughout the
home. Handmade chandeliers, Spanish Colonial doors, antique beams and lighted nichos are used in such an understated way as to make every room warm and inviting.
The custom plaster work of both houses, chosen from local earth samplings and combined with mica, creates unique colors and surfaces.
The master bedroom and bath, along with the rest of the house, are designed with a wealth of storage. Stunning Eastern views from the bedroom are matched by beautiful Southern views from the oval, freestanding stone bathtub in the bathroom.
Two additional bedrooms, off a sitting area and bath, are perfect for family quarters or as a complete suite for a parent.
An office, full utility room and 360º views make every room a delightful encounter. A large outdoor kitchen and dining area on one of several portals is perfect for entertaining and leads to a unique, natural swimming pool that fits perfectly into the lush landscape.
