|On a private perch in the foothills southeast of downtown Santa Fe, this welcoming residence enjoys far-reaching views across the city toward mountains and sunsets in the distance. A winding paver drive winds upward toward the home, offering a separate parking area and leading to the generous three-car garage. Relaxed day-to-day living and grand indoor-outdoor entertaining are equally easy here, in a grand living and dining room with a fireplace and a soaring ceiling; a warm and inviting kitchen with an island, a breakfast nook; and a family room; a recreation room with a built-in bar and powder room; and an expansive portal with a built-in grill, a kiva fireplace, and one of the most envied views in the area, out across rugged New Mexico terrain and the city below toward the Jemez. A master suite that includes an office, a spacious spa-like bath, and a private arbored portal with mountain and sunset views is secluded in its own wing, while three guest suites are privately located.|
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.
