On 10 private acres providing peace and tranquility, this exquisite residence is just 20 minutes from the historic center of Santa Fe yet feels worlds away. Thoughtfully designed to take in breathtaking views of the Galisteo Basin and the Ortiz and Sandia Mountains, it represents exceptional quality complemented by sophisticated design. Beyond double entry gates and the lush front courtyard, custom-designed Cantera wrought-iron doors with side lights allow for a line of sight straight through the foyer to the views beyond. The residence’s timeless appointments include high ceilings, hand-troweled Red Rock plaster walls, concrete floors, multiple fireplaces, large muntined windows to bring in abundant natural light and magical views, magnificent finishes, and delightful outdoor spaces. The glorious gourmet kitchen is both beautiful and functional. It offers family and breakfast areas and access to a sunroom with a grilling area. The owners' suite, which includes a studio, is well separated from the two restful guest suites. The handsome library is appointed to delight the most dedicated bibliophile. It also serves as an additional guest suite and features a walk-in closet. Impeccable walls and a gallery encourage the display of an art collection. In-floor radiant heat and refrigerated air conditioning assure comfort in all seasons.
