Combining light-filled spaces, breathtaking beauty, and functional luxury, this exceptionally crafted 11,000-square-foot home in the highly coveted gated community of La Tierra Nueva was designed by internationally acclaimed architect William Lumpkins. Its perch on nearly 14 acres on the dramatic Caja del Rio plateau affords unobstructed showstopping views of the Jemez and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. An impressive entrance separates the two wings of the residence. The primary areas are designed for living and entertaining: a chef’s kitchen with state-of-the-art appliances, a breakfast nook, and a cozy kiva fireplace; an oversized butler's pantry; a formal dining area; a spacious living room with a fireplace; an office; an owner's suite with a fireplace; a guest bedroom suite; a library or additional bedroom with a bath; and below-ground 2,000-bottle wine room and spacious cedar storage closet. The newly renovated solar- and gas-heated, resort-style pool can be enjoyed all year round. A virtual private resort and nature conservancy, the property is a peaceful, serene haven for native wildlife and its stewards. Majestic pines, blue spruces, and aspens form a forestlike backdrop, while fruit trees, a labyrinth, stone sculptures, dedicated walking paths, outdoor living spaces, flourishing grass, seasonal gardens, an alpine pond, multiple water features, a 14-person hot tub, an outdoor kitchen, and a firepit create a high-desert playground.
