37 Rancho Alegre
Rolling across 175 acres of quintessentially SW ranch land near the crest of a hill, with the Ortiz Mtns as a stalwart backdrop, the centerpiece of the ranch is a 13,395+\-sqft residence including a chapel; a torreon with rooftop deck; guest & caretakers quarters; a courtyard with cantina; & patio, pavilion, & portal beside a breathtaking infinity-edge pool. Not far off is a private 4-bedroom guesthouse & equestrian facilities that include several pastures, 12 stables, a barn, an arena for roping & cutting. The dramatic boveda ceiling reemerges in the kitchen. This dramatically unparalleled space includes custom light fixtures of goatskin and wrought iron above a copper-topped breakfast bar. The distinctive cabinetry, carved by Jose and Constantino Jaramillo, features a decorative flourish based on the work of Russian artist Nicolai Fechin, who carved the doors, window frames, pillars, and furniture of his home, now the Taos Art Museum.
