Breathtaking Hilltop Contemporary Retreat

Situated on 50 acres and perched on a breathtaking hilltop, this contemporary home is a singular place where rarefied location, flawless modern design, relaxed spaces, and superlative views meet. The striking sophisticated, aesthetic combines tasteful use of natural materials and intriguing details throughout and the thoughtful placement of spaces for ideal private relaxation and festive gatherings. Expanses of glass are designed to maximize a truly majestic view that encompasses multiple mountain ranges, foothills, badlands, sunsets, sparkling nighttime skies, and the rugged rolling terrain of northern New Mexico. The house is oriented along the cardinal points, with the front door opening due south, and the main hallway runs along an east-west alignment. A master and guest suite occupy the eastern wing, while two additional guest suites and a family room are secluded in the western wing. At the heart of the home is an open great room and kitchen offering a stellar view and an ideal space for grand entertaining. All cabinetry was made onsite, and the dramatic entry door and hardware throughout the home were custom-crafted. Radiant heat helps maintain a pleasant temperature in cooler months, and roof-mounted solar photovoltaic panels feed directly back to the grid, producing a credit each month from the utility company. Outdoor spaces further the options for appreciation of the stunning surroundings. Downhill from the residence near the entrance to the property is a spacious workshop or studio appointed with extensive storage.
