The lowdown: Every great home begins with exceptional thought and inspirational vision, and this one-of-a-kind estate property is a prime example. It was constructed by the highly regarded Santa Fe contractor John Wolf, known for several prominent remodels and specialty residential construction. Carefully sited on 11.5 acres, with spectacular Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountain views from every corner of the property, this sophisticated home sets itself apart from the norm of Santa Fe style.
The stylish, mostly adobe, main house displays elegance in every aspect of the architecture, from the formal living room to the dining room to the library. Outside, serene spaces abound with poolside gardens, deep sitting portales, and a contemporary, cascading water feature at the entry. A lap pool and spa are refreshing escapes during the summer. Attention to detail is evident in the plastered walls, radiant heating and air conditioning, and wood-burning fireplaces in both private and gathering spaces.
Delightful evenings can be spent entertaining friends and family in the 14-seat movie theater (modeled after the Majestic Theatre in San Antonio) and wine-tasting grotto, or marveling at fireside sunsets in the Torreon viewing area. An elevator is ready to whisk guests between floors of the main house. Two nearby guesthouses are individually constructed on either side of the main home, so that guests can enjoy their own luxurious gardens and private outdoor gathering spaces.
This high desert estate is in a gated, equestrian-friendly community and a quick drive to downtown restaurants and shopping, as well as the Santa Fe airport. Known for its access to world-class art and food, as well as skiing, hiking, fly fishing, and hunting, Santa Fe is a huge cultural draw and timeless backdrop for those looking to live authentically in the heart of the Southwest.
