At eight thousand feet, stunning vistas unfold from this mountain retreat on 64 acres, which comprises a main house and a casita connected via a zaguan, offering four bedrooms and five baths, all just five miles from the Santa Fe Plaza. It begins with a 20-foot entry arch, which leads to an exquisite Mayan-inspired fountain, where a view of the valley below stretches all the way from Taylor Mountain to Los Alamos to southern Colorado. Further on, the uniquely designed main house is entered through a 12-foot trapezoidal steel and copper door. The two-level entrance gallery offers the perfect space for displaying artwork. In the main residence, opportunities are plentiful for taking in the sweeping landscape or entertaining guests on portales; an outdoor pavilion with lounging, cooking, and dining areas; or, for the finest views, the rooftop deck. A living room with 22-foot floor-to-ceiling glass walls, an adjacent “sunset” room, and a media room offer places to gather and relax. The spacious kitchen includes 14-foot ceilings, a substantial semicircular granite-topped island, dining and sitting areas, and a butler’s kitchen. The secluded owner’s suite exemplifies luxury in a serene setting, with an en suite bath, dressing rooms, and an exercise or meditation room. The second-story office provides a quiet place to work from home. The retreat also offers a separate two-car garage.
