On a quiet hillside at the end of a winding paved road just 10 minutes from downtown Santa Fe, this incomparable 12.5-acre contemporary compound is an architectural tour de force designed for the discerning buyer in search of luxury, security, seclusion, and convenience. The heart of the property is a 5,000-square-foot residence that catches the eye with its traditional pitched roof and hacienda-inspired floor plan centered around a courtyard. Its position on its 12.5-acre grounds provides a sweeping vista the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Constructed of a high-performance, energy- and resource-efficient autoclaved aerated concrete block, it features such striking contemporary elements as custom steel ceiling beams, American Clay walls, and concrete floors finished with hand-troweled micro-topping. In addition to three bedrooms, it offers a 4K-media screening room, a lounge, a dining room with 25-foot ceilings and one-of-a kind custom-designed lighting installation, and a spacious gourmet kitchen with book-matched walnut cabinetry, Italian glass countertops, and superior appliances. Glass doors open to the central courtyard, while an alfresco entertainment area accessible from the living and dining rooms includes a stainless-steel open-air kitchen and an in-ground spa that make indoor-outdoor living and entertaining effortless. Accompanying the home are a detached two-car garage, two double-adobe guesthouses, and a three-car garage with an upper-level studio or office.
