Expansive views of the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains are dazzling from this home on five acres in Vista Redonda. The current owners lovingly designed the home for entertaining, later adding an upper-level owners’ suite with a sunset balcony and sweeping views. The generous living room, which includes a dining area, features textured plaster walls, brick floors, a fireplace, and double doors to a wraparound portal ideal for enjoying sunset views and sparkling night skies. Each of the two spacious guest bedrooms has a kiva fireplace. The kitchen has solid wood cabinets and countertops and beautiful views. Adjacent to the kitchen is a family or game room with a kiva fireplace, a private bath, and glass doors to the grounds; this could also serve as a wonderful lower-level bedroom suite. The residence is located just up the hill from the Rancho Encantado Four Seasons Resort, a short distance from the world-famous Santa Fe Opera, and minutes from the Plaza and other attractions.
The picturesque, incorporated village of Tesuque enjoys a rural feel (there are still horse properties here) and is only five minutes north of Santa Fe, just beyond Bishop’s Lodge.
