Vasquez / Lamprich
Located on nearly an acre beside the Big Tesuque River, this property is steeped in the history of the Old Spanish Trail. The original adobe home has been transformed and expanded, and new structures have been added, resulting in an enviable compound consisting of the main residence, a garage, a studio, a private office, and a guesthouse. No expense was spared in selecting the finishes, from the diamond plaster walls and the handsome flooring to the distinctive accents in the baths and kitchen. A glorious light pervades the interiors of the main house, which features two bedrooms, two baths, a living area, two dining areas, a well-equipped kitchen, and an outstanding entertaining portal overlooking the river. On the other side of the compound, a newer structure offers a two-room art studio, a wine cellar, a study, a bath, and a two-car garage on the ground level along with guest quarters—romantically perched amid the treetops on the upper level—that include two bedrooms, a living area, and a bath. The property enchants with its thoughtful landscaping and a path leading to a bench by the river. Beautiful and private, this is a rare opportunity not to be missed.
