A nature lover's oasis, this inviting home is set in the gated Salva Tierra subdivision among gently rolling hills dotted with pion trees. Enter the landscaped courtyard and let the sounds of trickling water in the koi pond greet you and mature shade trees surround you as you approach the covered patio entrance. Inside, the large picture windows in the formal living room allow plenty of natural light in, while a crackling fire in the kiva fireplace provides a great atmosphere for entertaining. The bright and airy formal dining provides ample space to host dinners, yet glass French doors to the covered patio, ensure the flexibility to entertain inside or outside. The kitchen is a chef's dream with custom wood cabinetry, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, large center island with gas cook top. Full size wine fridge, and the versatility of a built-in breakfast nook or a breakfast bar add to the appeal. The master bedroom provides the space and tranquility to relax as you cozy up to the kiva fireplace or enjoy the serenity of nature from your private covered patio. The calming environment continues into the master bathroom with dual pedestal sinks, soaking tub, and large walk-in tiled shower. Other features are 2 additional bedrooms, informal living room, whitewashed beam ceilings, wood and tile floors, tiered and landscaped backyard with flagstone and brick patios, and coyote fence. Situated less than a 7 mile drive to the Santa Fe Plaza, this home is a haven.
