Conveniently located near Museum Hill, Christus St. Vincent hospital and the Santa Fe Plaza, this gracious residence is sited on approximately one acre with beautiful walled gardens, mature landscaping and extensive portals from which to enjoy the outdoors. The grand entry foyer leads to the inviting living room with beamed ceilings, large skylights, and an impressive fireplace. Walls of glass in the delightful dining room provide views of the manicured gardens. The kitchen is a chef's dream with an adjacent butler's pantry and laundry. At one end of the main level is the opulent owner's suite, with a gracious bedroom opening to a private balcony, a sitting room/office, two separate dressing rooms, abundant closet space, separate water closet, and a tub and shower room with a fireplace and its own private balcony. At the other end is the guest wing, with two en suite bedrooms and an enchanting fountain room, each of which opens to the front portal. On the lower level is another private area with den and wood-burning kiva fireplace that opens to the wooded park-like grounds. Also on the lower level is a two-bedroom suite that shares a bath and a one-bedroom suite with bath and kitchenette. There is plenty of parking, including a two-car garage and a carport just outside the kitchen. This home offers the opportunity for multi-generational living or very private guest quarters. There is excellent separation of space, with three distinct living areas.
