Inside a Stunning Mountain Getaway in Santa Fe – Sotheby´s International Realty

As the majestic Sangre de Cristo Mountains of New Mexico unfurl toward the downtown Plaza of historic Santa Fe, tree-lined ridges and arroyos afford ideal spots for luxurious getaways perfectly positioned for serene privacy and spectacular views. This unique home high in these hills is a striking architectural foray, combining elements distinctive to the American Southwest with streamlined contemporary design. Throughout, wood beams honed to have clean, sleek lines contrast chicly with walls of plaster and stone in soothing organic hues, all helping the home feel at one with its setting. Walls of glass transform the enveloping scenery—mountains, sunsets, and sparkling city lights—into dynamic art.

An idyllic courtyard replete with flourishing native trees, grasses, and other flora introduces the home, while a stone water feature provides a placid soundtrack. The core of the residence is an effortlessly fluid living, dining, kitchen, and family space with two fireplaces, a wet bar, and numerous oversized windows. The chef will appreciate the kitchen’s top-caliber appliances, abundant storage, generous walk-in pantry, and oversized island with counter seating for three. Just outside, multiple expansive flagstone patios—one with a fire pit—sit beneath wide-open impossibly blue skies. Classic portales—two with fireplaces, one with a built-in grilling area—offer shady sheltered spots for appreciating Santa Fe’s notoriously fresh air and irresistible vistas.

One of four luxuriously appointed bedrooms, the owner’s oasis is a self-sufficient suite with a prominent stone fireplace, a built-in desk, two handsomely outfitted walk-in closets, a spa-inspired bath with a glass-walled shower and a soaking tub, and an outdoor living space of its own. The busy professional will appreciate the dedicated office, a spacious hideaway in the upper-level guest wing that features numerous thoughtful built-ins and access to a shared bath. Both a dramatic curving staircase and a convenient elevator offer access to the home’s three-car garage, one bay of which easily serves as a gym. A bath with a shower is steps away.

Smart house technology and user-friendly whole-house automation make day-to-day living and sophisticated entertaining easy. In anticipation of the mountains’ enchantingly snowy winters, the estate has been equipped with an outsize heated motor court. The secluded, secure locale on the uppermost ridge of the High Summit—one of the city’s most highly prized gated communities—is only moments from the numerous attractions, amenities, and conveniences of Santa Fe as well as a luxurious spa and the area’s famed ski slopes.
