Sangre de Cristo Mountain views provide a breathtaking backdrop for this beautifully designed single-level residence, which includes an inviting attached guest house and is enveloped by courtyards and patios. Privately sited on 1.6 pinon- and juniper-studded acres, the extraordinary Las Campanas home is welcomes with a landscaped front courtyard threaded by an inviting flagstone pathway and such classic Southwestern finishes as arched custom wood doors, vigas, intricate iron work, concrete tile floors, carved posts and decorative corbels. Recently remodeled, the home has an updated aesthetic and an exceptional floor plan offering opportunities for formal and informal entertaining as well as separation of private quarters. A living room with soaring ceilings and easterly mountain views centers around a magnificent fireplace, is open to the dining room, and accesses entertaining portales through tall French doors. The recently updated kitchen and adjoining cozy family room also access outdoor spaces. The secluded and well-appointed owners' suite boasts mountain views, a fireplace, a portal, and a luxurious spa-inspired bath with a fireplace and separate water closet. The two guest suites and the attached guest house are quiet and private and include en suite baths. Among the other appealing features are an outdoor fireplace, mature landscaping, a rooftop observation deck with stunning 360-degree vistas, and a three-car garage.
