This secluded adobe estate near the Rio Grande in El Guique, New Mexico, is a once-in-a-lifetime property. Nestled amid the spectacular landscapes of the river valley and the volcanic Black Mesa plateau near Abiquiú, the 1.1-acre property is an artist’s dream, bounded by the Acequia del Ancon and landscaped with grassy lawn; fields of ivy, mint, and herbs; rows of evergreens; ancient box elder; and mature locust and fruit trees—all maintained by sprinkler and drip irrigation systems. The two homes onsite were built around 1750 for members of an extended family and have been carefully restored, maintaining the integrity and beauty of the original adobe architecture while incorporating modern conveniences and amenities. Each residence measures nearly 1,800 square feet, could be configured in a variety of fashions, and features thick adobe walls, 10-foot ceilings, original vigas, and wood floors throughout. The main residence currently comprises a generous eat-in kitchen with a sitting area beside the corner fireplace, a dining room with large windows overlooking the lawn, a living room with a traditional fireplace and a banco, and a spacious bedroom. The second home offers a vast artist's studio, a library with a kitchenette and dining area, and a guest bedroom. The entire property is fenced and gated for complete privacy.
