Enjoy stunning views and abundant wildlife from a secluded, private property nestled against the Santa Fe National Forest a short 10 miles from the Santa Fe Plaza National Historic Landmark. Venture out in the fabulous sunny weather to hike, bike or run, and rejuvenate with the sweet smell of pristine pine, pinon, and ponderosa trees. Listen to the wind rush over towering rock outcroppings and rugged ridges, gaze out over expansive views of distant mountains and flatlands, or sit by a seasonal stream graced with waving willow rushes. In winter, come inside from an invigorating cross-country ski trek on one of the numerous nearby trails on this 75+ acre gem, and warm up in a magnificent great room by a resort-style river rock fireplace. Engineered by Benjamin T. (Buck) Rodgers and built of solid adobe, block and local timbers, the home is environmentally low-impact with a passive solar array providing heat and hot water. The property comprises four separately-deeded parcels, which provide a unique opportunity to build or expand this mountain getaway. This incomparable residence offers 2 bedrooms with baths on the ground floor and 2 bedrooms with baths upstairs, with a half-bath off the gourmet kitchen, and 4 fireplaces. Extensively remodeled, the home is replete with artifacts of distinction and fascination. This is, in the truest sense, an extraordinary, one-of-a-kind property. A perfect mountain getaway you can call home.
