Exceptional quality, unique features, history, and abundant artwork make this estate a true Santa Fe treasure. The heart of the historic home, known as Casa la Luna, dates to the 1920s; renowned architect Meisa Batayneh designed a new wing, and her deft ability to blend the historic and the new is evident throughout. The residence now measures 13,400 square feet and offers seven bedrooms, seven and one-half baths, six fireplaces, and all-encompassing views. Authenticity abounds, with Rookwood Pottery fireplaces, cherrywood ceilings and doors, oak floors, and William Morris wallpaper. A highlight is an intricate, lovingly crafted mosaic that is a reproduction of one found at the church at Mount Nebo, Jordan. Other one-of-a-kind features include an Olympic-length indoor swimming pool, a giant sundial, and an outdoor life-size chess game. The granite used in construction was sourced from the site, and the foyer ceiling incorporates ancient motifs representing longevity and welcome.
As the Old Santa Fe Trail winds north, these lovely, heavily-forested communities run alongside. Located in the foothills of the Sangres, the lower elevations provide rolling hills of pinon and juniper with the high-elevation nestled in mountainous terrain. All have wonderful views of the Sandias and famous Santa Fe sunsets. Most lots start at 2.5 acres and some are over ten.
