While its ridgetop setting and stunning views certainly distinguish the property, the home itself is a Pueblo revival masterpiece regardless of the elevation.
Wrapped in warm-toned stucco, the 6,200-square-foot home features timeless pueblo touches like thick, wood ceiling beams, arched doorways and hand-troweled walls. Italian influences are also on display, including limestone columns, slate tile flooring and cross-vaulted hallway ceilings.
A tranquil courtyard centers the three-bedroom home, with glass walls on three sides bathing the interior with light. Kiva fireplaces run throughout, including in the living area, kitchen and two ensuite bedrooms. The primary suite encompasses a stone fireplace, built-in closets and a dressing room with a sitting area.
A sprawling 100-foot veranda, where another Kiva fireplace can be found, showcases some of the most spectacular views on the property. The single-story floor plan also includes a library with built-in shelving, a dining area and an office/media room.
