Minutes from Santa Fe's downtown area and yet worlds away, this architectural, eco-friendly beauty is a magical retreat. As if floating in the clouds above the breathtaking New Mexico landscape, this free-form Rammed Earth house with a detached guest house has 360 degree panoramic views and is simply spectacular. Atop a hillside and sited on 10 private acres, one enters the main house's front door and can see the dramatic views from every angle. The house is a passive solar design and has 2 solar arrays, but is attached to the grid, allowing for several options of solar/grid switch back. Emphasizing the eco-friendly component, interior vegetable/herb gardens are found throughout the property. The finishes are of the highest quality and the examples of exquisite craftsmanship are throughout with beautifully hand-plastered walls, hardware handcrafted by Tom Joyce, gorgeous built-in cabinetry from re-claimed Louisanna cypress wood, Pennsylvanian blue stone flooring, massive sugar pine beams...and the list goes on. Absolute artistry. The main house has a rooftop patio with a sunken hot tub (other worldly!) as well as a separate interior spa with a waterfall that rivals any private tub at the famed Ten Thousand Waves! The guest house is steps from the main, but also has great privacy. In a world of chaos and toil, this property is a gift to one who yearns for peace, privacy, spiritual connection, sustainable living and a constant reminder of how beautiful the world can be.
