Custom-built in 2006 by the original owner, this elegant adobe home enjoys end-of-the-road privacy in the gated community of Las Lagunitas along with expansive mountain views. Stylistic highlights include diamond plaster walls throughout, forest-fire-harvested vigas, porcelain tile floors, and chipped-edge flagstone sills. The impressive kitchen features alder cabinetry, granite countertops, stainless-steel appliances, and a cozy semicircular dining area. The owner’s suite has a kiva fireplace, a luxurious bath with a jetted tub, a steamshower, a double vanity, granite counters, alder cabinets, and a spacious walk-in closet. The two guest bedrooms are well separated for privacy, and the home also provides dedicated office space. A deep portal with herringbone-patterned brick flooring is a wonderful outdoor living space with dramatic mountain vistas. An oversized partially heated three-car garage completes this appealing picture.
Once a stagecoach stop in the 1800s, Las Lagunitas is minutes from Southside commercial centers and Rancho de las Golondrinas and only 40 minutes from Albuquerque. It overlooks the vast open space of the Leonora Curtin Botanical Gardens and offers 90 acres of common open space with walking paths, natural springs, huge cottonwood trees, and a seasonal creek.
