A lushly landscaped courtyard—with colorful tulips, roses, lavender, aspens, and other mature plantings—is a welcoming introduction to this inviting Southwestern-style home. It features superior-quality finishes, including brick floors, high ceilings with vigas and beams, knotty alder wood doors and cabinets, diamond plaster walls, and display nichos. The delightful chef's kitchen includes a center island with seating for three, a gas cooktop, granite countertops, a stainless-steel backsplash, and a generously sized pantry. Spacious and luxurious, the owner's suite has a private patio, a kiva fireplace, a well-appointed walk-in closet, and a spa-inspired bath with a glass-enclosed shower. The two guest bedrooms, a full-size bath, and a powder room are in a well-separated wing. Living room windows perfectly frame a view of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Air conditioning provides comfort on warm summer days. A myriad of outdoor spaces offer quiet retreats at any time of day.
