This timeless adobe estate built by Doug McDowell encourages enjoyment of refined relaxation indoors and out. In the three-bedroom main residence, a spacious living and dining room, a media or family room, and a chef's kitchen with a butler’s pantry create an ideal setting for fabulous gatherings; while the private quarters have been thoughtfully placed in quiet wings for restful relaxation. The highlight is the alfresco spaces: a generous west-facing portal, a magnificent sun-soaked patio, a well-outfitted outdoor kitchen, and an alluring swimming pool and hot tub encourage taking the festivities outside. Throughout, the sophisticated aesthetic combines tasteful use of Southwestern details—including vigas, flagstone floors, and kiva fireplaces—with an easy, open flow and majestic views that encompasses mountains, foothills, badlands, sunsets, Santa Fe and Los Alamos city lights, and the rugged rolling terrain of northern New Mexico. Across a charming colorful courtyard from the main residence lie a two-door, two-car garage and a quiet, delightful one-bedroom guesthouse with its own kitchen, living and dining area, and portal. The kitchens and all baths have been thoughtfully updated, and air conditioning is a welcome amenity. The location, in the peaceful foothills, is within the city limits and only minutes from the Plaza.
