    About this Property

    In a town that epitomizes “cowboy chic,” this residence in the Tesuque hills is a standout. Designed and constructed by Robert Ritter, it boasts sleek rectilinear adobe walls and a minimalist interior that more closely resembles an urban museum than a Southwestern-style retreat. Glass walls frame priceless Jemez Mountain views and convey a dedication to simplicity. A striking grid motif recurs in square-cut ceiling beams, planks, and Indian sandstone floors; custom angular corbels; beeswax-burnished walls; Cubist-inspired nichos; an indoor fountain; and cabinets and doors of Philippine mahogany and African padauk wood. Such artistry creates a serene, refined, and impressively understated harmony. A rooftop mezzanine above the one-bedroom casita, a sweeping patio, and a courtyard with sculptures and a fountain afford vistas in four directions. This home is a unique experience, with every detail—from skylights to superbly wrought ironwork—crafted with exceptional artistry and integrity.
