This stunning home is perfect inside and out. Complex, yet warm and inviting, the blending of materials, shapes and patterns is a feast for the eyes. Designer David Naylor and architects Colin Keegan and Larry Andren have brought this remarkable home to life. Built from Rastra, it is energy efficient and very strong. The standing seam roof and wrap around portal accent the Northern New Mexico style. This home is featured in and on the back cover of designer David Naylor's book, "Old World Interiors - A Modern Interpretation."
The entry hall is grand with hand-hewn doors and a gracious stairway with custom wrought iron rails leading to one of the two separate lofts upstairs. In the great room painted ceiling panels in the coffered ceiling are supported by solid oak beams with custom designed and forged iron supports. Divided windows and doors have wooden frames and an over-sized stone fireplace with heavy wooden mantle are highlights in the living area. Wooden shutters between rooms add to both privacy, when needed, and openness when not. This home is a stunning tribute to craftsmanship and is unique in every way... including the well-maintained property itself. There are terraces and gardens, and even an organic apple orchard (plus pear, apricot and plum)!
The kitchen is open to the great room, as is the dining area. The appliances are of excellent quality and there is an abundance of cabinets and counterspace. An island with sink offers extra prep space. This kitchen is designed to allow the chef to be a part of any conversation while cooking. The stairway to the second loft is here as well. There is a breakfast portal off the kitchen and a dining portal with another stone fireplace off the living room... making for cozy fall evenings. The master suite is to the right of the entry hall on the first floor in a wing to itself. The centerpiece of this inviting suite is a handsome fireplace with a floor-to-ceiling stone facade. Wooden cabinets hold a media center on one side of the fireplace and a display area to the side of the door. The gorgeous wooden doors, beams and hardwood floors are all luxuriously dark and rich. French doors on either side of the bedroom lead to the wraparound portal. A walk-in closet has built-in cabinets and drawers and lots of hanging space. The good-sized bathroom has natural stone floors, bathtub, shower, jacuzzi, two sinks and a separate room for the toilet. A swimming pool with waterfall feature and spa are near the master, and an outdoor shower is conveniently located outside the room.
The upstairs is divided into two sections, one on either side of the great room. Each has its own stairway and an open arched window with shutters that views the other loft and the magnificent ceiling with the chandeliers of the great room. The dramatic wooden beams, doors and trim add to the beauty of the pitched ceiling. The left loft has a good-sized bedroom, with a storage room, closet and 3⁄4 bath. The stairway to the left loft leads up to a good-sized sitting room featuring a balcony with Trex custom railings and the arched, shuttered window overlooking the great room. The right loft features two ensuite bedrooms, each with a balcony, and separated for privacy by a hallway. The farthest bedroom has a study with built-in bookshelves. From upstairs it is easy to catch a broader view of this well-loved and maintained property: beautiful organic lawns, a vegetable garden, Bishop Lamy lilac bushes, the orchards, the labyrinth, and the sparkling blue swimming pool.
Two acequias run through the property with irrigation rights, and there is a well on each of the two legal lots. Some land overlooks the Tesuque River and the property abuts the Santa Fe National Forest. Completely fenced and private, this home, along with the land, offers a respite from the noise of contemporary life with hiking trails and forests aplenty... and is just twenty minutes to town.
This property is simply magnificent in every way.
