This wonderful home, designed by an architect, for himself, has won Parade of Homes Best
Design Awards for both its outstanding kitchen and enchanting master suite. Featuring unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez Mountains, the entrance is south-facing with portals flanking the tall windows of the 50' entrance gallery, kitchen, master bedroom, and the orchid garden.
Once inside the house, the rooms are light-filled with pitched, high beamed ceilings and large windows. The light plaster walls are a nice complement to the Italian tile, brick, and wood
floors that are heated by radiant baseboards.
The kitchen is inviting with all the best amenities and lots of storage. The eat-in kitchen has a sitting area and a fireplace with windows and lovely archways that lead to the dining room and
gallery. Enjoy a morning cup of coffee or summer dining on a private portal off the kitchen and dining areas.
The gallery walkway is stunning with flowers and plants playing against artwork. The focal point of the living room is a fireplace of imported stone with a carved mantlepiece from India. The beauty of the fireplace is accented by exquisite French doors that open onto the north portal. This house is filled with light and breathtaking views from every room.
The master suite occupies a separate wing of the house and has access to the large, 50' portal. A perfectly situated walk-in closet rests between the bedroom and the master bathroom. A luxurious old clawfoot tub sits in the corner of the bathroom facing onto a very private portal.
A separate building houses a 2-car garage, storage area and two guest units, each with its own bath. Either or both of these two large guest rooms would make an excellent studio, office or gym.
This is simply a charming oasis just waiting for the right new owners to come along.
