The Main Home
Upon passing through the gated entrance and down the private tree-lined lane, one is immediately captivated by the presence of the beautiful Adobe Main Home. Originally built in the late 1800’s, it has been lovingly enhanced with great care for its structural and cultural integrity by the owners, who have called it home for more than 40 years. The 5,600 square foot main home has been designed as an entertainment retreat, with a sprawling floor plan showcasing the many gathering spaces, intricate woodwork, luxurious tiles and countless custom features. Each room is gracefully tied to outdoor spaces, with each of the bottom floor rooms having direct access to the outdoors allowing for tremendous views and abundant natural light. The home boasts 5 bathrooms and 4 bedrooms, including a luxurious Master Suite on the main level with a fireplace and an additional Master Suite upstairs with a private sitting room. The formal living and dining rooms are enhanced by oversized windows overlooking the views beyond, while the Kitchen opens to a large family room showcased by more large windows. There are six fireplaces total throughout the home and an outdoor patio that is perfect for enjoying the evenings with friends and family.
Other improvements include a charming, 2,816 sq ft. pueblo-style Guest Home with a 3 bedroom/2 1/2 bath open floor plan and glass doors throughout, offering tremendous natural light, and a 3,000 sq. ft. heated garage/shop.
