Hacienda Artist Paradise @ Bishops Lodge is a three-bedroom, three-bath home in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Range of the Rocky Mountains. This property sits just outside the city center (plaza area) of downtown Santa Fe. The name, Hacienda Artist Paradise, comes from the original art on display. It is approximately 3 miles outside the city limits – just enough to give that peaceful feeling of being up in the mountains with a view, but within minutes of the Plaza. It takes two minutes to walk from the front entrance of the home to the Club House pool area where one gets the feeling of an infinity pool overlooking the mountains. To experience a sunset overlooking the mountains while in the pool area is really something to experience. Ensconced in a gated community just minutes from the Opera House, this is one of the villas that is part of the “Bishops Lodge” community with beautiful landscaping maintained by the Hills and Villas Association. Bishops Lodge, the iconic 1920’s ranch resort and spa, is in the midst of a multi-million dollar renovation and will re-open in a 2018. The horse stables and trails are now open to the public.
This property offers high ceilings with wood log beams, porcelain tile floors, and carpet in the bedrooms. The large, fully stocked kitchen with granite counters, all stainless appliances, all the cookware, dishes, etc. that one will need for that gourmet cook. Plus new counter-top appliances of every kind that include a regular coffee pot, Keurig, and a Nespresso machine stocked with coffee for each coffee maker, as well as a variety of teas. The dining room accommodates 8 and four counter stools for the counter facing the kitchen. The three bedrooms are beautifully furnished throughout. Two bedrooms have king-size beds, and the third bedroom has “two” queen-size beds. Every bedroom has an ensuite bathroom that includes a shower and tub with the Master offering a Jacuzzi and walk-in shower. Each bedroom comes fully stocked with new linens for the bath, hangers in the closets, luggage racks, extra pillows, a private outside patio, and a television. The large living room has four upholstered chairs and a sofa, with a 40” TV. Just outside the living room is a large patio that is fully furnished with an outdoor dining table for 8, a new Weber grill, a chaise lounge, and a pizza oven, plus the most incredible VIEWS! The linen window coverings throughout the home are custom. The home is equipped with a security system, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth music system, and a land-line telephone for local and emergency long-distance calls. The full-size washer and dryer is right off the kitchen and as quiet as silence! This home is very well-maintained, professionally cleaned and in like-new condition.
