Northeast chateau / country house description

Situated on approximately one and one-half acres of land, this double-gated magnificent estate is tucked away in the pinion and juniper-covered hills of the north side of Santa Fe. Vista Encantada, 'Enchanted View,' is only minutes from the Plaza. This 3400 square foot residence includes three separate portals containing an additional 1000 square feet of luxurious covered - outdoor space. The views from the portals are framed by the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.

Renowned architect, William Lumpkins expanded, and redesigned this old world adobe, which has appeared in Town and Country magazine. Vigas, cedar latilla ceilings, six kiva fireplaces, brick floors, and built-in bookshelves accent this three bedroom, three bath, formal dining room with seating for eight, and living room home and separate office/study. The interior is complimented with antiques, paintings and period Santos, creating an ambiance of warmth and quiet opulence. Entertain guests in this special residence, which exemplifies the essence of elegance and luxury.

The main dining room has three foot thick adobe walls. The view from the couch and two Mexican chairs in the bay window next to the intimate dining room table faces the backyard and is framed by the surrounding mountains. This magnificent room may well be your favorite place for fond memories on your vacation. You will love the art work here and in the living room.

One of the three portals is located next to the living room. It is decorated with all new furniture, as is all the furniture on the other portals and outside patios and grounds. This portal includes two large couches and four large chairs with seating for twelve people.

BBQ grill and swim outside by the pool and cabana while sipping on a beer or margarita. There is an umbrella covered table and new furniture here for relaxing on your vacation.

Too, on yet another outside portal, the one next to next to the backyard, listen to the enchanting sound of the small waterfall filled with goldfish. There is a dining table with seating for six on the covered portal. This portal also includes a couch and relaxing chairs. You have another BBQ here for preparing your favorite meals.

This wonderful property has all new outdoor furniture for seating over 40 guests. You may also enjoy the new front yard area, which includes a wandering path, covered by tree lit lights. Enjoy reading and relaxing while sipping on your favorite adult beverage.

The residence is located on a Dead End street, just off of the main semi-circle portion of Camino Del Norte. There are only four properties on this street. As a result, there is no traffic or noise. The peacefulness and serenity make all of the outside portals and garden areas perfect for relaxing and unwinding.

Walk around the property taking in the awesome vistas reminiscent of Tuscany - a world apart and yet deeply Santa Fe. Feel the serenity and seclusion of this truly unique home.

These unbelievable grounds and fabulous home will leave you with a lasting impression of this home and of Santa Fe.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1995

About the owner: I live and work in Dallas, Texas and am an Independent Oil & Gas Operator. My family has been in the Petroleum Industry for five generations in North Texas. We have also owned and operated oil and gas properties in New Mexico during this time. As a result, I have deep roots in New Mexico and in Santa Fe.

Why the Owner Chose Northeast:
This was my uncle's home third in a series of homes that he owned in Santa Fe. He bought this home in 1977. He spent one year remodeling and adding to the home, which also includes the addition of a swimming pool. I inherited it in 1995 and love visiting and working in Santa Fe. I also own commercial property in Santa Fe. My uncle also owned two other homes in Santa Fe, going back to 1950. Our family has owned large ranches in Las Vegas, New Mexico. As a result, I have a long history with New Mexico and enjoy it immensely. The home was again updated in the last 2 years. The warmth and character of the home has not been lost with these updates and additions to the grounds.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
This is one of the most unique and charming homes in Santa Fe. Seven Noble Prize winners have eaten in the dinning room. Stanley and Linda Marcus used to spend New Year's Eve at our home. Many Santa Fe Opera, School of American Research and St. John College individuals have frequented the home over the years. The history and ambiance reflects and maintains the essence of a man who had a real impact on the heart and soul of this wonderful city. I am blessed to be a part of this tradition and enjoy sharing this home with others.
