Sited on over three pinon- and juniper-studded acres with exceptional views of the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains is this beautifully designed, single-level residence in Las Campanas. With a sophisticated pairing of Southwest influences and European styling, the home's excellent floor plan offers opportunities for both formal and informal entertaining. Featured throughout are traditional Old World accents, including plastered walls, viga or beamed ceilings, Arabesque-style terracotta tile floors, carved posts and decorative corbels. The living room, with east and west mountain views, centers on a magnificent raised fireplace and is open to the dining room, which shares the same mountain views and accesses a grand portal that is a perfect gathering spot in all seasons, with its outdoor fireplace and sunshades. High-end finishes abound in the remodeled chef's kitchen, with a charming kiva fireplace and a cozy nook for eating in or reading one's favorite book. Located in the east wing of the residence, the expansive owners' suite encompasses the bedroom with raised fireplace and private portal, a luxurious remodeled spa bath, large walk-in closet and a private office. In the west wing are the powder room and two guest suites, each with an en suite bath and access private outdoor spaces. Additional features include a walled yard, mature landscaping and a rooftop observation deck with breathtaking 360-degree vistas - plus a three-car garage.
