This is The Lifestyle, a dream 10.67-acre (+/-) estate property that offers the ultimate in luxury living: serene, well-considered commercial construction; a breathtaking saltwater pool; varied outdoor seating areas with private vistas; and even your own sports car. Even the landscape takes you away: tranquil vistas across the private acreage showcase a rare ecosystem whose views are redolent of Santa Fe.
From the moment you drive through the weathered steel gated front entrance, down the winding, tree-lined 300-foot+ driveway to the impressive contemporary home, tranquility surrounds you. Completed in 2014, this gorgeous dream property features ultra-modern interiors. The manicured walkway leads to a stylish angled front porch. Throughout, the main and second floors are 11-foot ceilings, with 9-foot ceilings on the third floor. There are also gorgeous polished concrete floors. The high level of detail in the home means storage and indoor/outdoor living experiences have been well accommodated for. The home and the surrounding property interact beautifully, creating a zen aesthetic. The open concept main floor offers a large dining room, living room and superb chef’s kitchen. The front door opens into a weathered steel cube, whose material echoes other accents throughout the property. The floating staircase to the second floor is a feat of engineering. Black steps are suspended in such a way that the staircase itself is a work of art.
Superbly-positioned, black-framed aluminum double-glazed commercial-grade windows offer picturesque vignettes of the outside, rendering viewpoints almost as if the windows were framing works of art. The living room offers access to a terrace with a fabulous covered outdoor kitchen with a wet bar, built-in barbecue and built-in ceramic egg. There is plenty of space for outdoor dining here, and this terrace overlooks the stunning fiberglass saltwater pool (2015). The kitchen is absolutely phenomenal.
Some features include stainless steel and black granite countertops, two large islands, a 64-inch stainless steel refrigerator/freezer, a 48-inch gas range and two cylindrical NT Air hood fans from Italy. The main floor also enjoys a spectacular full bathroom, a laundry room with adjacent organized storage / utility room and a wonderful mudroom.
The second floor of the home offers another extraordinary open concept living space. Punctuated by a wood-burning fireplace set into a corrugated steel feature wall, this room is multi-purpose. There is a wonderful home theatre area with a projector that displays across a white wall. There is also a powder room and a fabulous kitchenette. Off the second floor is a superb tiled rooftop deck with a hot tub and amazing views. Not only does this deck have exterior stairs that lead down to the main level of the backyard, but it even has a change room off it for convenience.
The top floor of the home also offers amazing light and floor-to-ceiling windows that look out to incredible views. The primary suite accesses a wonderful balcony with unobstructed views. A sensational ensuite bathroom features a freestanding soaking tub, dramatic glass shower and uber-contemporary floating double sink. Even the vanity mirrors have been hung to appear as if floating. The ensuite bathroom also enjoys an adjacent walk-in closet. There are two further bedrooms on the third floor, one with access to the balcony. Another beautifully designed full bathroom has many unique design elements, including a basin sink surrounded by river rocks, and a curved wall separating the shower and soaking tub. Each bathroom in this home offers a spa-like serenity echoed by the calming natural landscape visible from each.
The outdoor space has been thoughtfully conceived and offers many spectacular seating areas. The symmetry of the contemporary backyard is breathtaking. On one side of the gorgeous blue fiberglass swimming pool, a dramatic black wood-burning fireplace juts out of the landscape. The other side of the pool offers an amazing steel pavillion with a screened-in gazebo featuring a gas fireplace, electricity and plenty of room for dining and lounging unencumbered by the rain or bugs. The covered outdoor kitchen abuts the uncovered adjacent dining terrace; this allows for fabulous outdoor dining and cooking. Around the side of the home is a sauna for post-workout or swim relaxation. The fantastic rooftop terrace off the second floor offers seating with a view, and has a hot tub and gas firepit. The third floor balcony offers yet another vantage point.
In addition to a large heated double attached garage, the home also has a double detached garage. The incredible 10.67 acres that belong to the property afford wonderful hiking, mountain biking, cross country skiing, snowshoeing and trail running terrain. The varied pursuits possible on the property make it the ultimate lifestyle proposition. From relaxing and unwinding to being active or maintaining a car collection, the property has many uses and draws. This rare contemporary home has been lovingly curated and extraordinarily designed. Live The Lifestyle - whatever lifestyle resonates most with you - at this unrivalled dream property.
