Brad and Leslieís nurturing home and sanctuary of the past 14 years is on the East side of town in the quiet, private Sun Mountain Estates neighborhood off of Old Santa Fe Trail. Across the street from luminous Sun Mountain and pinon-wooded parkland, it is a very charming 2850-square-foot, 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom, wood-frame-and-stucco and adobe home. The impeccably cared-for, country-style dwelling includes an artistís studio, office and TV room.

An adobe archway leads from the quiet cul-de-sac to exquisite, mature gardens. Set far back from the street amidst large pinon and cedar trees, the house is nestled into a very tranquil and secluded setting. The large, outdoor living areas include: a second-floor redwood balcony/deck with gorgeous views of the Sangre de Christo Mountains and glorious New Mexico sunsets; extensive flagstone patios, an outdoor hot tub, and a delightful, adobe-walled courtyard and pond. A gardenerís paradise, the property offers a gas-heated greenhouse for growing orchids, vegetables or houseplants year-round.

Some special features include: newly remodeled kitchen, bathrooms, master bedroom and guest bedroom; a brand new tar and gravel roof; kiva fireplace; elegant vigas and latillas (wood-beamed ceilings) throughout; passive solar and gas heat; air conditioning; soft-water system; and triple-reverse-osmosis-filtered drinking water.

The peaceful refuge is less than ten minutes to the historic Santa Fe Plaza, shops and freeway, but feels like the countryside. On .65 acres, the spacious, private property seems much larger than it is because it adjoins a greenbelt and is surrounded by groves of large, old pinon and cedar trees. The greenbelt has access to a beautiful arroyo (dry, sandy creek bed) that connects to the superb hiking trails of Sun Mountain and Atalaya Mountain. It is a short walk to Museum Hill. The property contains a notable historic landmark: The original Old Santa Fe Trail was discovered to run through the side yard.

The house will be listed with a realtor at $875,000 on October 20. If the house is sold without using a realtor before November 3, then 5.25% ($46,000) can be deducted from the asking price, which would total $829,000. The furnishings are also for sale separately.

Showings are upon request. Please contact Brad at (505) 424-8844, ext. 2 or at brad@corelight.org.
