Welcome to your own private desert resort. This 5-bedroom luxury home overlooking the Rio Grande Valley, Jemez Mountains, and the Black Mesa. Includes an outdoor hot tub, outdoor fire-pit, indoor sauna, private flagstone patio, vine-covered pergola, a rock goldfish pond, custom-made iron gates, and breathtaking views from nearly every window.
Designed by the Chicago architect William Keck in 1942, the passive-solar building originally was the Los Alamos schoolhouse (where the children of the Manhattan Project studied) before being moved to this spur of land above the Rio Grande. The modern kitchen includes a double oven and a copper-hooded restaurant-style stove, while the dining room seats 12 and has a massive stone fireplace. Navajo rugs, art pieces, and paintings decorate the house, which includes a sunny living room (also with a fireplace) and a private study, while the bedrooms and four full bathrooms are each furnished in a distinct style. A sun room leads out to the patio, hot tub and views. Both wings have their own master bedroom with private bath, as well as a washer dryer.
A short stroll through the cottonwoods takes you to the Rio Grande; the famous El Santuario de Chimayo is 15 minutes away, Santa Fe is a beautiful 25-minute drive, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs is 30 minutes away, and Taos lies 45 minutes to the north as does Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch. Three ski areas are in the vicinity as well. But you may want to stay home and enjoy the views.
