The Mescalero House is 'rustic luxe' at it's finest and is a gem nestled in Ponderosa and pinon pines on 5 acres in the foothills of southeast Santa Fe. This unique mountain home is furnished with textiles and decor from around the world making it an exotic & private romantic getaway for two or perfect for a family looking to do something out of the ordinary while on vacation. Built of adobe bricks, the house is a cool haven in the summer and cozy in the winter.
Accommodations include a queen bed in the master suite with attached master bathroom, and a queen bed in the guest suite with access to the guest bathroom. All bedrooms are supplied with high quality linens, down comforters, pillows, and overhead fans.
The artist' home features high viga ceilings throughout, acid-stained concrete floors with radiant floor heat in the winter, several kiva-style fireplaces, plenty of overhead fans, and a bright and open floor plan that lets the Santa Fe sunshine in!
In the living room, there is a large HDTV with an Apple TV streaming device (Netflix, Hulu Plus, and HBO Now accounts included, however, there is no cable TV!!!), a Denon surround-sound system/DVD/stereo, as well as an extensive DVD/CD music library, games and books for you to enjoy while relaxing here. The home is fully equipped with high-speed internet access, including wireless networking throughout the house & grounds.
Surrounded by flagstone patios and colorful perennial gardens in the summer & fall, there are several outdoor living areas where you can enjoy the beautiful weather day and night. Curl up with a book or your morning coffee in one of the many chaise lounges & chairs, take a siesta in one of the hammocks, or enjoy great star gazing at night from the hot tub and patio areas.
Unique features include an outdoor gas grill and a dining/seating area for 6, an outdoor hot tub, and an exotically furnished tipi with a full bed and hanging Moroccan lights where you may be lulled to sleep by the night sounds of chirping crickets and the soft glow of the moon.

Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: My name is Kristen Hoke and I built this home in the year 2000, fulfilling a life long dream to design and build a home in the mountains. I lived in New Mexico as a child and returned here again in 1986. I have been an Emergency Room nurse for most of my life until recently and am now pursuing my love for textiles through my own business Posh By Gosh, Inc. My passions are traveling, design, music, and nature. This photo was taken with my dear friends' children, Alexandre and Claire, who were visiting from France.
Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
I was drawn to this particular area after house-sitting for a friend years ago. In my search for land in 1999, my realtor brought me out here (by my surprise) and I knew as soon as I drove up on top of my knoll that I had found my spot. I love that it is close and an easy drive to town but that it feels like you are miles from nowhere!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
I love the setting for its' beauty and tranquility. It is a true haven and special place.
