Utterly charming, this log cabin is nestled on 117.6 acres in gated Ranchos del Rito, a 6,100-acre development in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, near the Pecos Wilderness. The 2,400-square-foot two-story structure was designed by the owner, a renowned Texas architect, and built of dead-standing 12-foot lodgepole pines. It combines the enchanting qualities of an Old World cabin with the luxury of modern amenities. The open-plan living and dining area is anchored on one end by a breathtaking moss-rock fireplace and opens to an expansive deck, a perfect place for stargazing or enjoying the tranquil sounds of the river. A master suite and a beautifully appointed kitchen and laundry area complete the first floor; an alluring stairway leads to two loft bedrooms and a second bath on the upper level. The discerning buyer will appreciate the on-site well, in-ground hot tub and plunge pool, telephone and DSL service, lightning protection, and security system.
