Just off the Old Santa Fe Trail, with the iconic Sun Mountain as the backdrop, this home is conveniently located close to Museum Hill and only 2.5 miles to the Plaza. There is ample space for flexibility in the residence with separate office, large den, storage rooms, and an oversized garage. The grand living room is graced by vaulted ceilings, spacious art walls, nichos and abundant natural light. The kitchen features granite countertops, Wolf cooktop and double-ovens, Subzero beverage cooler, and built-in buffet and china cabinet. The dining area has a kiva fireplace that is perfect for fireside meals. Set apart on the upper level is the gracious primary suite that features a balcony, coved viga ceiling, sitting area with fireplace, and a well-appointed closet with center island of drawers and a separate cedar-lined closet. On the main level is a guest bedroom with en suite bath. There is also a four-bedroom attached "live/work" space with two bathrooms and a large common area that provides privacy for guests or the flexibility for home offices. The outdoor entertainment spaces take full advantage of Santa Fe living: the expansive patio off the kitchen with a kiva fireplace, built-in grill, and a granite water feature by renowned sculptor Jesus Bautista Moroles, recipient of the 2008 Medal of Arts award. The garden beds are irrigated by an underground water catchment system. This is the perfect setting to entertain family and friends.
