Sited on just over 1.8 acres of lush mature gardens, this elegant gated Eastside estate includes a main residence and a guesthouse above the three-car garage. The home boasts numerous European-inspired features, including stonework, hand-troweled pigmented plaster walls, handmade tiles, custom stenciling, beamed ceilings, custom windows and hardware, hickory floors, and grand fireplaces. The gracious living room is enhanced by French doors and windows and sits directly across the central courtyard from the family room. The inviting formal dining room is the perfect place to share a meal, while a breakfast room just off the spacious, well-equipped kitchen provides space for casual dining. The luxurious primary suite offers a sitting room or office with a fireplace, two well-appointed custom walk-in closets, and a spa-inspired bath with a soaking tub and a tiled steamshower. Two guest rooms, each with outdoor access, are secluded down a private hallway. The alfresco dining area enjoys mountain views and connects the residence with the garage and guesthouse, which could also serve as a private home office. The captivating grounds feature flagstone pathways, terraces, and multiple courtyards. Irrigation is provided by the property’s private well, which also serves the residences. Nearly every vantage point benefits from views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains and their foothills. Recreational opportunities, Canyon Road, and other attractions and amenities are nearby.
