1036 Mansion Ridge Road, Santa Fe, NM
Unique opportunity to own a very special property designed by Santa Fe Opera architect John McHugh and built by iconic road building contractor Jimmy Johnson, just minutes from the Santa Fe Plaza. Located off Bishop’s Lodge Road, with gorgeous mountain views, this grand and spacious 3 bedroom 3.5 bath home showcases wonderful historic features: antique door handles, hand-carved mantels, wrought iron doors, rich wood details, and beams and bricks from the old military chapel La Castrense. Enter through a gracefully curved walled courtyard and into a generous living room with a 24’ beamed and latticed ceiling, intricately tiled floors and a balcony library with built-in bookcases and sunroom. A separate den includes light pine floors, an undulating coved ceiling, and an impressive stone fireplace. With views to the outside gardens, the eat-in kitchen is filled with light in early morning and again at dusk. Master and guest bedrooms are on the main level and a separate downstairs suite with kitchen, living room, bedroom and bath is perfectly private for guests. A bonus studio, media room, or additional living space of approximately 3,000 heated square feet adds extra living area. Wrap around ivy-draped portals provide exceptional 360-degree views and delightful alfresco entertaining. This wonderful country estate, graced with ancient petroglyphs and with mature gardens and orchards irrigated by a private well, offers a timeless, secluded oasis to enjoy.
