34 Vista Tesuque, Santa Fe, NM
In the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, just a short drive from the Santa Fe plaza, is the remarkable community of Los Caminitos, and within is a home designed by the noted architect John Klee. This masterfully crafted Southwest contemporary is sited on 7+ acres of extraordinary view scapes of the Jemez mountains to the Black Mesa and Pedronal. Enter along extensive stacked stone walls across a bridge to the circular Portal and carved front doors. There is extensive use of natural materials and hand carved antique Balinese, East Indian, and Mexican doors that are virtually unavailable today. These mastepieces of native carving are balanced with more contemporary surfaces of Diamond plaster walls, bleached oak - Arizona buff flagstone floors, and harmonious living spaces opening up to extensive decks of Jatoba Brazilian Hardwoods. The master suite includes a luxurious spa, walk in closet for two, and finishes of New Mexican Apache Gold Marble, and extensive Southwestern views of the mountains. The Media room could be a fourth bedroom. The Chefs' kitchen has views of the foothills, dumbwaiter, pantry, gourmet appliances, and Violetta Italian granite counters. The Guest suite and downstairs Studio are en suite and with private outdoor areas. The Studio includes a large living room with fireplace and has been pre plumbed and wired for a future kitchen. The Art of the Southwest Contemporary luxury home offers incomparable architectural spaces and views to the horizon.
