Exceptional 6 bedroom 7 bath custom-designed and built residence and guesthouse expertly sited on 5.7 acres in the prestigious gated community of Tesuque Ridge Ranch. An air of grandeur pervades the nearly 14,000-square-foot manor, yet every space is warm and welcoming. The heart of the home is a generous kitchen and den with a fireplace, a breakfast area, an adjoining portal, and an awe-inspiring view of the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The thoughtful design includes magnificent formal living and dining rooms, a handsome library, and private bedroom wings for owners and guests. Surfaces of lustrous plaster and cool antique Jerusalem stone contribute to the regal ambience, while earthy reclaimed walnut, hickory, and mesquite add warmth and depth. A third-generation German stonemason crafted mantels for the home's 13 fireplaces. Enveloping the residence are a number of phenomenal outdoor living spaces, each of which has been positioned for the utmost enjoyment of the views and tranquil surroundings. In addition to the main residence, there is a detached two-bedroom guesthouse. This is an ideal property for reunions and large-scale entertaining. Highlighted features include a finished basement, oversized 3-car garage and mature landscaping. A serene location in the foothills north of Santa Fe yet only minutes to the historic Plaza, the Opera and Canyon Road.
