Property description

For more current information, please go to homeaway 190142

Exquisite regional artwork, antiques, native rugs and artifacts adorn this warm, classic New Mexican adobe home that reveals breathtaking views of the Jemez and Sangre de Christo mountain ranges throughout the house. Built in harmony with the foothills, the home includes multiple living areas, an upper master suite with sunroom, office and jaccuzi, a main level suite with 2 beds (king and double), and a secluded lower level queen suite. Passive solar, coupled with the house design, eliminates the need for central air and heating. Radiant in-floor heat, five Kiva fireplaces, and efficient space heaters in the main living area will keep you warm on the chilliest of winter days. Our gated home is located at the end of a short driveway with very private and beautifully landscaped walking trails, multiple patios and 4 decks, all on 5 acres.

The main living area is comprised of two large yet cozy rooms, both with large windows and gorgeous views, that share a wrap-around kiva fireplace. Comfortable leather sofas and easy chairs, a grand piano, and a 55” LG flatscreen TV and entertainment center, make this part of the house a wonderful secluded gathering place away from the bedrooms.

The heavy wooden dining table seating six to eight people, separates the kitchen from yet another sunken living area with fireplace, a large day bed and comfortable seating. You’ll find plenty of dishes, flatware and serving pieces, mugs, bowls and glasses, all indigenous to the area. The galley kitchen has tiled countertops, pots and pans hanging from the ceiling, and of all the amenities a person who loves cooking would want.

Master Bedroom: A grand artisan staircase leads from the living areas to a room with spectacular views. Large individual windows wrap around a king size bed that looks on to a kiva fireplace and master jacuzzi bath with picture-window. The large cushioned built-in bench with table and 2 chairs overlooking the Jemez Mountains, makes it the perfect place for breakfast or coffee indoors. As well, this bedroom has private access to the office and sunroom which offer more spectacular views, a large daybed and rollaway.

Main Level Bedroom: Situated on the main floor off the dining room, this bedroom suite has a king bed, kiva fireplace and large flatscreen TV with sitting area. Large windows that surround the bed afford wonderful views of the Sangre de Christo mountains to the east. A half-wall separates an additional double bed from the rest of the suite. The chess table and chairs looking onto the private porch complete the room.

Lower Level Bedroom: Located downstairs, this queen bed and large shower with bench offer extreme privacy from the rest of the house with it’s own private porch area.

Sunken Room: Located off the dining room on the main floor is a large daybed and fireplace.

Upper Level: Off the upper master suite, you’ll find a small patio with a table for 2, perfect for coffee. From there, stairs lead to the rooftop deck. Once there you will experience the magic of a 360º degree view spanning 4 mountain ranges. Our home is just far enough away from the city lights to experience the majesty of the universe after dark, as well as a full view of Los Alamos. Comfortable folding chairs and a warm chiminea complete the experience.

Main Level: (1) Outside the entertainment living room is a large deck that leads to a huge open fireplace. Plenty of seating, a dining table with umbrella, two grills and views facing west make this a wonderful place for breakfast or dinner. Large reclining lounge chairs and ample sun allow for laying in the sun year-round. (2) On the other side of the house is a beautiful enclosed private courtyard with multiple seating options, much like you would expect to find on a quaint cottage off Canyon Rd. From here, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains can be seen in the distance. (3) Outside of the main level bedroom suite is a large jacuzzi tub and private deck nestled in the trees, again with ample seating.

Lower Level: French doors in the Lower Level Bedroom open on to a private treed area.

Complementary pinion wood is stacked just outside the front door under a covered portico.

We have merely scratched the surface in our description. This is a home you simply must experience for yourself. We believe that all the 5 star reviews speaks for us as well.

Because many of the handmade, original art pieces are within a child’s reach, we discourage families with young children staying in our home.
