Property Description

Masterpiece on Museum Hill! Created by a celebrated patron of the Santa Fe Opera, this 3.8-acre property borders the serenity of the Santa Fe Botanical Garden and shares golden sunset views of the Jemez Mountains. Designed as an intimate and comfortable home behind a gated entry in a private setting, this is a cosmopolitan space designed for grand-scale entertaining and has accommodated over one hundred indoor dinner guests and over two hundred guests on its grounds. Healthy landscaping along a magnificent stacked stone wall leads to a bricked paved circle ending at the 7600 sq.ft. main residence. Upon entry you are greeted by a sparkling white, barrel-vaulted gallery, lit by a continuous skylight and spanning the length of the house. This gallery serves as a central connecting place and is also perfect for showcasing an art collection. The eye is drawn to far windows onto the landscape, and to beautiful Italianate tiles designed and imported by the original owner. The adjoining living room accesses a lovely deep portal and garden area with views of the Jemez Mountains. A spacious circular dining room has great acoustics, designed to allow everyone at the table to participate in conversation. Its candle-lit chandelier inspires warmth and intimacy. Along the gallery find the large Southwestern kitchen and breakfast area with traditional vigas and whimsical glass lights. It includes an informal gathering space with bancos flanking a kiva fireplace. A large butler’s pantry/service area is adjacent. A horse-themed game room/den includes a spacious bar and one of the nine customized fireplaces. At the far end of the house, find three spacious bedrooms with large windows, fireplaces, built-in shelves and full baths offering quiet refuge. The primary suite includes closet space fit for royalty. A 1900 square-foot guest house greets visitors as they enter the gate. It has two bedrooms, two baths, with brick and bamboo wood floors, a garage, and a private garden.
