Located in a gated compound and situated on 3.34 acres this amazing home provides both
privacy and security. Designed by Philippe Register in 1961, the house is sited on the ridge
and is within the Ridgetop Overlay District of the City of Santa Fe. Today, new codes would
prevent this house from being built on this piece of land, making it a truly rare property. Breathtaking
views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountains are spectacular and visible from nearly every room.
Constructed primarily of adobe and concrete, natural plaster walls highlight expansive windows
throughout the house. Wood and tile floors intermingle. The outdoors and indoors intermingle as well. Wood beamed ceilings perfectly accentuate clean, contemporary lines.
There is a quiet sense of peace here.
The kitchen is perfectly suited for family, friends, or guests and is well-equipped with plenty of
storage space. The central island allows the chef company while cooking, and huge windows keep the kitchen and adjacent dining room open to the views. A terrace off the dining area increases the dining footprint for family breakfast and evening cocktails.The dining room is open to the living room which boasts a fireplace and a living terrace–and a view that doesn't quit.
The master suite is nicely separated from the other bedrooms and includes a fireplace, lots of
storage, a dressing room, and a private balcony. There are 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on the
other side of the house as well as a 4th room with a separate entrance that would be perfect
as an office or exercise room.
A two-car garage and mechanical room are on the lower level. Here you will also find a
laundry room and a very large office or studio space along with a powder room.
In addition to the subdivision gate the property has its own electric gate with a large fenced
area for dogs. This is a bit of heaven on earth....Don't miss this one!
