Perched on a near-out hillside with vistas south and west, evoking the quality and sensibilities of classic Doug Atwill homes that charm from the moment the courtyard gate opens, be prepared to fall in love. The drive to the the front gate is view-filled yet the moment of meeting remains a surprise. With a long portal with fireplace, flagstone patio, water feature and gardens to the fore, sky and mountains define the setting. Pueblo revival architecture abounds. With vigas and high wood ceiling, brick floors, and kiva fireplace, the great room fills with the golden light of twilight. Tall doors and windows overlook the portal, and reach to the views. The great room and portal mirror one another, creating a singular living area filled with light, vistas and sunsets. A second courtyard, with morning light, portal, patio and terraced gardens to the back, offers symmetry. From the great room the home expands to the open kitchen which includes a center island with breakfast bar, granite countertops, handsome cabinetry and a door to the rear garden. Two bedrooms on either side of the great room balance the sleeping quarters. The Two bedrooms near the entry are presently used as a den and painting studio. Both have wood ceilings and share a bath. The den, with brick floors and build-in book shelves opens to a small enclosed garden. Across the great room the comfortably sized master bedroom includes a gracious bath with jetted tub and shower, large walk-in closet and petite private garden. Nearby is the forth bedroom with adjoining bath. Completing the residence is a laundry room and two car garage with additional storage alcove. On 3.2 acres in the Tierra de Oro community northwest of Santa Fe, downtown Santa Fe is only 10 minutes drive away. And at the property's far edge, away from the house itself, step out on a La Tierra Trail pathway and wander to your hearts content.
