Perched high in the Sangre de Cristo Estates with round windows designed to capture sweeping views of the surrounding landscape, it comes as no surprise to learn that the neighborhood has affectionately dubbed this home "The Bird House." Each room in the 3,648 SF footprint overlooks the drama of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains through an abundance of porthole-styled and oversized picture windows. The upper level is the domain of the primary suite, a space given to serenity by the organic wood beams, flood of natural light, and the unbelievable views. The main floor living room is open-concept and unites the kitchen and dining room with a stand-alone wet bar that is the focal point for indoor and outdoor entertaining. A claw foot tub with shower makes the main floor powder room elaborate. The 2-car attached garage is also oversized. Metal banisters, flagstone floors, clean white walls and a Vermont Casting wood burning fireplace insert combine modern touches with the rustic feel that is strongly pronounced by the home's pinon-rich 4.5 acre setting. An upstairs private wing is home to two guest rooms, a full bathroom and an ante room that can function as a rec room, gym, art studio or office. Tesuque Village, the Opera and Santa Fe Plaza just minutes away, this unique property nestled in a gated community offers the ultimate in convenience, whimsical style and privacy.
