Glamorous Eastside Sanctuary: Luxury, understated glamour and relaxed elegance are the hallmarks of this private, Eastside sanctuary. Generously designed for both high-end entertaining and quiet relaxation, the home can accommodate a range of lifestyle preferences: from a personal Four Seasons-style getaway, to a home for the busy, daily activities of an extended family. The diversity of lifestyle is matched by proximity: the property is equidistant to wilderness forests, trails and the bird sanctuary, as well as the downtown center with St Francis Cathedral, charming shops, art galleries and outstanding restaurants. In short, the ultimate Santa Fe Trophy home. The walled, gated estate, secluded on a hillside along famed Upper Canyon Road, once comprised structures dating back 100 years. The property has been magnificently developed and landscaped, the central home meticulously designed and reconstructed, resulting in beautiful, well planned formal rooms for entertaining and quiet areas for intimate encounters and relaxation. High ceilings and large windows welcome in lush, sun dappled flower beds, wisteria vines, honey suckle, roses, aspen groves and mountain views. Rich gardens encircle both home and guest house. The heated pool, sunken Jacuzzi, and jaunty cabana offer spectacular views of the western mountains where Santa Fe sunsets are among the most sensational in the world. Highlights of the main house include dramatic ballroom doors in the grand living room, two classical fireplaces, three artistically designed, hand-fashioned bronze fire screens, kiva fireplaces, hand scraped walnut floors, a festive mural, vigas with painted details, a custom sound system and French doors to a portal with a built-in grill and stairs to an observation deck. The modern kitchen is designed for serious cooking with professional-quality stainless steel appliances, a sizeable center island, poured countertops and a fireplace. A spacious family room looks out on the back terrace.
