Hidden behind gates and privacy walls on the legendary Old Santa Fe Trail, the estate of the venerable Peggy and Forrest Fenn is a secluded Shangri-La comprising a one-bedroom 4,596-square-foot main residence, a one-bedroom 645-square-foot guesthouse with a kitchenette, and a three-car garage with storage space and a lighted paved driveway. The 2.65-acre grounds include beautiful irrigated landscaping, lighted walkways, producing fruit trees, aspens, cottonwoods, a weeping willow, a private well, and a recirculating stream with a stacked-stone waterfall cascading into a pond that fish, frogs, turtles, and ducks call home. The home boasts an entry hallway with a high barreled ceiling; a magnificent library with beams, latillas, and a walk-in vault; a spacious living room with a central fireplace; a well-equipped cook's kitchen and breakfast room; a large primary bedroom suite with dual walk-in closets and baths offering a steam shower and a jetted soaking tub; a second-level office or studio with access to a spacious roof deck affording sweeping views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains; portals and patios; and a rare basement providing storage space. Among the fine features and remarkable architectural details are floors of oversized stone tile, plentiful built-ins, custom cabinets, handsome stone countertops, antique and solid wood doors, masonry fireplaces, numerous skylights, and tasteful window treatments.
