This architecturally stunning home is perfectly perched on a private 10+ acre La Tierra lot in a manner to accentuate the 360 views. Relish the captivating Sangre De Cristo mountains to the east, relax in the evening to the spectacular New Mexico sunsets over the Jemez Mountains to the west. This home was designed by Ted Luna to be both organic and time-less with interiors and exteriors in balanced harmony. The use of glass and materials brings the outside in. The floors are a combination of limestone and hardwood. Upon entering the home through a glorious front courtyard garden, you will note the magnificent front door which sets the stage for the soaring octagonal ceiling and huge windows framing the awesome views. The main home has 3 bedrooms, with the 2nd ensuite bedroom potentially a wonderful office with big windows and views. Except for the library loft, this home is one level with no interior steps. The primary bedroom suite also maximizes the huge views and features an oversized wood burning kiva fireplace. The private, attached casita has its own entry. The air-conditioned home has a 3 car oversized garage that is heated and also air conditioned. There is also a 24 X 12 outbuilding that serves as a garage space for a 4th vehicle. The totally electric home, has solar installed, that causes the utility cost to be a fraction of what a similar sized home would be. And one can have this private setting, with the magnificent views, yet be less than 15 minutes to town.
