SALE PENDING! Sited in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountain range on nearly 3.5 acres, this Property is an architectural tour de force, even in a location known for exceptional residences. Offering stunning city and mountain views, this adobe home is inviting yet sophisticated, and possessed of a serene atmosphere that echoes its natural surroundings. Private and peaceful, the Property feels secluded – but it is only ten minutes to town and twenty-five minutes to the famed Santa Fe Ski Basin.
Comprised of three distinct wings, the spacious residence sprawls across a double lot in its private community and boasts timeless touches from flagstone floors to custom fireplaces. Stone and glass walls make the most of the Property’s incredible views of the Jemez Mountains, and several walled gardens and patios further bring the outdoors in.
The center of the home is a gourmet kitchen, finished with neutral-toned cabinets and stones that provide a striking contrast to the rustic exposed beams in the ceiling. Adjacent to the kitchen is a cozy breakfast nook and spacious formal dining room. A family room, living room and entertainment nook currently in use as a music room round out the communal areas.
The southeastern end of the residence is devoted to an exceptionally appointed master wing with his-and-hers offices, laundry room, and coffee bar. In addition to a lovely master suite with fireplace and mountain views, the wing also offers two stunning master baths, one with a steam shower. Each bath offers a walk-in cedar closet and custom-carved stone sink and vanity. The baths are separated by a private marble soaking tub overlooking a walled garden with a footpath connecting the master baths through exterior doors. A full fitness center with indoor Swimex pool and intimate patio with in-ground hot tub and fireplace complete the master wing.
The guest wing consists of two en-suite bedrooms and a cozy sitting area. An additional self-contained guest suite, or “casita,” with one bed and one full bath also offers an open living and dining area, full kitchen and private access from a door adjacent to the attached, three-car garage.

SANTA FE, NM. Dubbed “The City Different,” Santa Fe’s landscape provides a dramatic backdrop for the city ranked number four on Travel + Leisure’s 2018 “Top 15 Cities in the United States” list. Apart from the sun-drenched beauty of the region, Santa Fe has a rich history: it has been continually occupied since 900 BC, originally by Pueblo and Tanoan hunter-gatherers. Formal settlements started to take hold in the 1200s, and Santa Fe was named the capital of the Kingdom of New Mexico in 1606. That means the city is one of the oldest continuously occupied sites in the entire western hemisphere, and the oldest state capital in America! In 1846, the United States took the territory from Mexico, and after reaching statehood in January 1912, the citizens of New Mexico named Santa Fe the capital once again.
The influence of Native American, Spanish and Mexican cultures has combined to make a vibrant city that values its history while investing in its future. Known for its art market, Santa Fe boasts nearly 250 art galleries and brokers, with the third-largest art market value in the United States. Art museums are also plentiful, and a large focus is placed on Native American art, both traditional and contemporary. The city’s parks and woodlands are spectacular – especially the Santa Fe National Forest, which is located in the northern city limits. In addition to art and outdoor recreation, Santa Fe has preserved many of its historic neighborhoods, and the San Miguel Chapel and Santa Fe Plaza transport visitors back to earlier days. In 2005, Santa Fe was designated a UNESCO World Creative City for its efforts to preserve its cultural heritage.
SANTA FE COUNTY, NM. With dry, warm summers and snow-filled winters, Santa Fe County is beautiful year-round. A high-desert county, the elevation begins around 5,000 ft above sea level and reaches more than 7,100 ft at its highest points. The incredible terrain provides world-class hiking, biking and skiing; indeed, one of the New Mexico’s largest ski resorts, Ski Santa Fe, is located here. Over 400 miles of mountain biking trails cross the county, and USA Today, Singletracks Magazine, and the International Mountain Biking Association have all honored the county as one of the top mountain biking areas in America. Also awarded for its 600 miles of hiking trails, the area is considered a premiere destination for trail and high altitude running, and horseback riding, fly fishing, and golfing are top-notch as well.
If a more relaxed lifestyle is preferred, Santa Fe County can deliver exceptional opportunities to see exciting art, architecture, and historic landmarks. Traditional Native American culture is celebrated alongside American artists like Georgia O’Keefe, and many galleries showcase upcoming artists. Theater and opera thrive as well, with family friendly installations like Meow Wolf sharing the limelight with the celebrated Santa Fe Opera. The cutting-edge productions are set in a breathtaking outdoor theater, whose electronic libretto system (one of only two in the world) delivers translations of the works directly to each audience member’s seat. With so much beauty in one place, Santa Fe County is sure to move you: as D.H. Lawrence said in 1917, “Touch the country [of New Mexico] and you will never be the same again.”
