This timeless contemporary house sits on ridge surrounded by 10.5 private, view acres in La Tierra only a 15 minute drive from downtown Santa Fe. A walled, landscaped courtyard welcomes visitors. Glass, wood, stone, and natural tones combine to bring the outside in. A soaring octagonal ceiling and big windows frame sweeping views of both the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountains. All living areas are on a single level except for a comfortable, bookshelf-lined loft. There are three bedrooms and baths in the main house, and one in the attached guesthouse, which has bathroom and kitchen, and a cozy sleeping loft, popular with grandchildren. The kitchen is spacious with hand-crafted cabinets and limestone floor tile. A large, private office with built-in bookcases and ample space for filing cabinets adds versatility. The angled, non-parallel walls enhance the acoustics, giving sound a rich resonance.
