Located at the end of the road with a private gated entry, this pitched-roof Northern New Mexico style home consists of @ 4,604 sq. ft., sits on nearly 1.7 acres with no HOA and is just minutes from the Plaza with views to forever and beyond. The entrance gardens leading to the front door is past a large water feature and northeastern-facing portal which opens into an enormous great room, the heart of the home, with big beams, vaulted ceilings, built-in cabinets and shelving, gas fireplace, wide-plank wood floors and a wonderful window seat from which to enjoy the sun setting behind the Jemez mountains. Adjacent to the great room is the eat-in chef's kitchen with the big views, tons of storage and a little work/desk area connecting to a Southwest facing sunroom for enjoying the warmth of the sun even on the coldest winter day. The sunroom, great room and master suite all open to a generous wrap around deck for enjoying outdoor living with unparalleled sunset views. There is a lovely upstairs casita with a kitchenette, lots of storage and privacy which can be accessed from either the kitchen area or from a separate front entry, so it could make a great space for guests or a rental as it sits over the 3 car garage and is well removed from the home's living areas. The primary bedroom suite, which is on the opposite side of the home just off the great room, includes a large walk-in closet, luxurious bath complete with steam shower and jacuzzi tub as well as cedar closet and massive amounts of storage for linens and shoes. Just off the wrap around deck from the master bedroom, is a separate large and luxurious sauna. A spacious guest room is upstairs; has its own bath, a lovely sitting area and the same wonderful light and vistas as enjoyed from every other room in the house! Should one need a separate casita or to create a mother-in-law quarters, there is ample room on the lot to build a detached structure, while also maintaining the big views.
