Santa Fe, NM
With endless panoramic views, this adobe masterpiece is Santa Fe living at its best. Sited on a premium 5 acre lot North of Circle Drive, this 5600 sq. ft. estate was completely re-imagined in 2013. Originally designed by John McHugh, a contemporary of John Gaw Meem and the architect for Santa Fe’s famous opera house, this renovation beautifully melds the Pueblo Rival and 21st century architecture. Majestic and yet warm, this home boasts an elegant living room with 16’ beamed ceilings, oak flooring and a commanding fireplace while the kitchen, the social heart of this soulful home, has a contemporary aesthetic with white silestone countertops, stainless steel appliances and multiple areas for gathering.
The dramatic formal dining room has a glass-enclosed wine cellar with retractable blinds that add extra drama to this extraordinary space. In the bedroom wing, the primary bedroom suite is also beautifully designed with a classic contemporary meets pueblo aesthetic and connects to a modern bathroom with an elegant Albert and Victoria soaking tub and mountain views. The estate has 2 guest bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, a light-filled private office off of the main living area, a large sunroom and a media room.
The views are ever-present and the grounds are enchanting with towering Aspen trees and picturesque cottonwoods. This property is within the gated community of Tesuque Ridge, but is not a member of that HOA. 11 Tesuque Ridge is a true Santa Fe treasure.
