About the property

3 Bedroom 3.5 Bathrooms 360 Mountain Views

Sited on 6.62 extremely private acres high on a ridge in Vista Redonda, this 4,460+/-sqft double-adobe home is filled with northern New Mexico charm. Highlights include an open kitchen and dining area, an elegant living room opening to a spacious sunset portal, a roomy master suite, two comfortable second-story bedrooms with private baths, and auxiliary storage space. Soothingly cool plaster walls, heated brick and hardwood flooring, classic pitched ceilings, and handsome woodwork and paneling accentuate each room, creating a magical, relaxed, and unaffected ambiance. Plentiful windows create a gorgeous natural glow within and allow for appreciation of marvelous surroundings. Extensive mature landscaping surrounds the home and increases the appeal of the lovely grounds. Incredible rockwork can be found here as well, and a fabulous observation area with a sweeping panorama has been created at the top of an impressive collection of winding stone steps. Breathtaking views are available from many vantage points, including the fantastic west-facing porch. The house is meticulously cleaned and maintained with organic and natural products.

Holiday in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

We had such a wonderful time staying in this house, it was absolutely the best place we could have picked for our family and the holidays.

The pictures do not do it justice, the house is beautiful! We were a family of 6 and we had more than enough room to all spread out and not be on top of each other. Nicely furnished, great fireplaces both inside an out and the view was unbelievable. We are a family of chefs and the kitchen was a dream to cook in, very well stocked with everything you could need and a well stocked pantry for almost anything you forgot to bring. Big open area so we could cook and have the rest of the family at the large table in the same room. Living area had two really comfy couches and a big table great for playing games. About a 15 minute drive into Santa Fe which was perfect, we were far enough out to have no noise and enjoy the stars at night with no lights interfering.

I would highly recommend this place to anyone visiting Santa Fe. Melissa the manager was extremely helpful, answered all of our questions and checked on us several times to make sure we had everything we needed.

Can't wait to go back!

fabulous place

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house, with a completely equipped kitchen, a wonderful layout (3 completely private rooms with baths), and a wonderful veranda with a view of the mountains. The house is only a short distance from the Santa Fe opera. It is perfect in every way.

Beautifully appointed home in the NM high-desert

  • 5 of 5

This property was so lovely, that we asked to extend our stay. Living is a busy large city - we were looking to escape to mother nature and re-program. This home provided us with the most beautiful scenery, hiking & biking trails, gorgeous sunsets, & rain storms to watch from the large patio. The property by no means, was "roughing it", it had all the comforts of a 5-diamond resort. We would definitely return.

Treat yourself to luxury: spectacular views, gorgeous house

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks in this magnificent home at the end of October. With the master suite on the main floor, we were able to spread out but not feel we were in too much house. The kitchen was especially well equipped which was essential for us since we cooked all our meals. The views were spectacular. As an artist, I did a number of sketches while there, both looking out from the house and from the front portico. We also used the outside spaces, eating several lunches when not too cool and and enjoying morning coffee in the protected walled courtyard. The location feels remote, even though it's actually quite close to Santa Fe with all the arts and culture and food shopping (including the amazing Santa Fe Saturday farmers market). The house is well located to must-go sites in the region--Bandelier National Monument, Tent Rocks, Valles Caldera, and the ski basin where the aspen were at their peak of fall color. The night sky was wondrously dark, free of aberrant light. At night, we heard coyotes, below the house in the arroyo. By the time we left, the first snow was on the mountains. We hiked down into this arroyo and felt wonderfully close to nature. Melissa is an excellent property manager, setting up the arrangements, meeting us at the house, and going over details. The house was clean and beautifully appointed. The grounds, likewise. We enjoyed fires in the excellent living room fireplace. And when we needed more wood, Melissa responded quickly and brought more. The master bath tub, with it's excellent view, was a highpoint. Only 2 suggestions, would make this rental even closer to perfection: the master bedroom bed creaked even with the slightest movement (a box spring would maybe help) and a couple of the igniters on the gas range were a struggle to get lit and stay lit.

Amazing & tranquil girls getaway

  • 5 of 5

Vista Redonda is an amazing home. Set high on a hilltop, the views from all angles are stunning. The kitchen is enormous, well stocked, and a chef's dream. There are so many areas to lounge and enjoy the gorgeous setting. We had several wonderful fireside dinners on the patio. The bedrooms were spacious with comfortable beds and well equipped bathrooms. It is secluded and quiet, yet an easy drive into Tesuque and the Santa Fe Plaza. There was plenty of space for our group of 6. Melissa was a wonderful host. Don't hesitate - book now!
