Details of Finished Rooms
Completed in the summer of 2000, this luxurious 4350 square foot adobe home features one master suite and two separate bedrooms, each with its own walk-in closet. Travertine floors and marble tile in the baths. Six fireplaces, built in outdoor barbeque, and three car garage.
The adobe glows in the twilight of a summer evening as the warm light from inside spills onto the walled entry garden. The stained glass windows of the guest bathrooms can be seen at either side of the front door.
The oval foyer features a vaulted ceiling with a domed skylight and recessed pin lights. Creamy travertine floors herald the elegance of the home's interior. Access to each of the two guest suites is from either side of the foyer.

 

Light from window walls on the east and a series of skylights fill the large living, dining, kitchen complex. Built-in plastered recessed shelves and nichos surround the fireplace as well as the wall between the living room and dining area.

Natural light from the eastern window wall floods the dining room and living room.

Note the coved ceiling treatment between the vigas (beams). The stepped wall between dining and living areas provide ample room for display.

Travertine floors and solid granite counter tops appoint this state-of-the-art kitchen. The latest appliances and generous storage are a cook's dream. Sweeping vistas of the Jemez Mountains to the west provide a splendid view.

The walled patio wraps sinuously around the east side of the house. The floor of the custom patio is of hand-fitted flagstone. The portal in the right rear covers the window wall of the master bed room while the portal cropped at the right shelters the living and dining areas.
