Feel a sense of serenity as soon as you enter the gate of this 47 acre retreat located just 4 miles from the famous Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs Resort and Spa. Meander down the 1/2 mile driveway to the main house while enjoying spectacular views in every direction, from the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the southeast, to the Jemez Mountains to the west and views of the extinct volcano Mesa Culebra and Georgia O'Keeffe's beloved Pedernal! To top it off, the property borders Carson National Forest!

Built in traditional adobe style and designed by architect John Barton, the color and texture of the home and adjoining casita blend into the environment. The home was published in "The Getaway Home", by Dale Mulfinger.

The 1600+/- SF main home includes a living room, dining area, kitchen, bedroom and private sitting/guest room area. A large south-facing window connects the kitchen and dining room bringing in the mountain views. The broad overhangs an deep windows recessed into the thick adobe walls keep the home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The west facing living dining area is sheltered by a veranda , but open to a lovely flagstone patio. Flagstone floors continue throughout the living, dining kitchen and guest area, connecting the interior rooms with the exterior spaces.

A long hallway with built-in shelving leads to a free-standing arched adobe wall which separates the main living area from the lovely guest room/sitting area with a large window to take in the awesome views. The master bedroom offers painted wood floors, a bath with saltillo tile floor and a claw-foot, tub as well as a walk-in closet. Another large window allows you to take in those fabulous southern views.

From the master bedroom you exit and follow the flagstone path across the connecting courtyard and terrace to the unique, round 1600 +/- SF adobe casita featuring a large open area with 2 bedrooms and a bath. The cuvilinear shape was inspired by the Spanish Mission-style churches of the area. The casita offers radiant floor heat and a wood burning stove.

A short walk leads to a studio and the 2-stall barn and corral (yes, horses are very welcome!). There is also a 40'x 50'x 14' 2000 SF garage which can house an RV as well as cars, tractor and all your toys!

Several outdoors spaces add to the enjoyment of the amazing views with covered verandas at each end of the main house and two more in the curved areas of the casita.

This magnificent property is a "Must See" for anyone looking for something out of the ordinary where you can enjoy privacy and peace in an incredible setting.
