This classic Northern New Mexico style home is a must see. The home has outstanding finishes and quality of construction with all of the touches that make Santa Fe homes so charming. Thick pumice-crete walls, high ceilings, hand troweled plaster, carved beams and Territorial details abound. Situated on a quiet ridge-top just minutes from Eldorado shopping and a short drive to the Santa Fe Plaza, this 9 acre estate offers luxurious country living and city proximity. The property has mature pinon and junipers throughout and beautifully landscaped gardens in various courtyards, many with water fountains and features. The chef's kitchen will delight any cook with professional appliances and is great for casual entertaining around the custom made island next to a counter height fireplace. The light-filled dining, living and family rooms open through multiple french doors to a deep wrap around portal with an outdoor fireplace and fountain. You will be able to enjoy sunsets and sunrises along with panoramic views of Sangre de Cristo, Jemez, and Sandia mountains. The luxurious and spacious main suite with a large bathroom, steam shower, walk in closet, and private north-east facing garden/courtyard with water feature will be a great retreat. All guest bedrooms are spacious with ensuite baths, and extend off a lovely window lined hallway gallery overlooking the main courtyard. A two-story media room/casita at the end of the hallway with a balcony can serve as a perfect care-taker's quarters, guest accommodations or studio. The heated, 3-car garage/greenhouse with glass roll-up doors could also serve as a wonderful studio or workshop.
