a bit of history of the home
Truly a treasure of the American Southwest. Nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, overlooking historic Santa Fe, New Mexico, the property showcases the unique, rustic beauty of the high desert.
From the moment you enter through the unassuming front gates of this breathtaking estate, you experience why New Mexico is called the Land of Enchantment. This 36 acre property provides a distinct backdrop for a magnificent estate that exemplifies the wonders of the Southwest. No detail was overlooked in the architecture — from the hand-forged wrought iron railings, diamond trowelled plaster walls, and custom cabinetry, to floors of imported stone, marble, ceramic tile, and hardwoods including hickory and quarter sawn oak. Large windows and skylights, custom draperies, light fixtures, and wooden beam vegas and latillas also add to the unique beauty of the interiors.
The original home was built in the early 1940s. Over the next seventy years, additional land was acquired and assembled, the property was renovated and expanded, and the many site improvements and buildings were precisely designed and integrated into the current setting. Care was taken to maintain the integrity of the Pueblo-style architecture, which is symbolic of the area’s original inhabitants dating back as early as 1050 A.D.
