PREVIOUSLY OFFERED FOR $12.5 MILLION. NOW SELLING WITHOUT RESERVE! Located in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, this 35-acre estate embodies New Mexico’s reputation as the “Land of Enchantment.” Originally constructed in the early 1940s, the Property has been refined over the past 70 years into the expansive, elegant retreat seen today, with special care taken to maintain the integrity of the Pueblo Revival architecture so admired in the region. From the hand-forged wrought iron railings, diamond-troweled plaster walls, and custom cabinetry to floors of imported stone, marble, ceramic tile, and hardwoods including hickory and quarter sawn oak, no expense – or attention to detail – was spared. Large windows and skylights, custom draperies, light fixtures, and wooden beam vegas and latillas add to the unique beauty of the interiors. Spanning 10,000 sf, the main residence feels welcoming, and has the intimate air of a much smaller residence. Within these walls are 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms in addition to 3 private offices, and a second-floor home theater/entertainment area with a balcony bar, billiards room and fitness center. A gourmet kitchen offers all the modern conveniences, including top-of-the-line Dacor, Viking, and Sub-Zero appliances, custom cabinetry, granite countertops, a large island with bar seating, and spacious pantries. Just outside, an outdoor kitchen and dining area offers a built-in grill, pizza oven, and fireplace surrounded by lush vegetation, fruit-bearing trees, and trickling fountains. Beyond the courtyard, there is an in-ground pool and spa complete with a bathhouse.
The grounds are extensive, and offer several additional residential structures, including a guest house and caretaker’s quarters. The 1,400 sf guest house offers 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, and a spacious portal with an outdoor fireplace, while the caretaker’s residence contains an additional 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. Adjacent to the caretaker’s quarters is the Property’s impressive equestrian center, with an 8-stall stable, large tack room, feed storage and wash stall.
Outside, over a mile of developed bridle paths connect multiple paddocks, exercise and riding arenas to the spacious barn. The PGA-rated Quail Run golf course borders the southern perimeter of the Property, but one need not leave the estate to indulge in some time on the links – 5 tee boxes are set 60, 90,130, 150, and 175 yards from a golf green with multiple holes. A putting green, swinging cage, and indoor golf simulator complete the package for the avid golfer. In addition these extensive features, the Property also offers a tipi, gazebo/picnic area, attached 3-car/detached 9-car garage, water catchment tanks, extensive irrigation system, and state-of-the-art video surveillance.
