Idyllic Countryside Getaway: Adobe Oasis in Jacona

In the quiet rural countryside of Jacona, part of the vibrant agricultural valley between Santa Fe to Los Alamos, this lush 2.454-acre compound is a secluded private oasis that envelops five distinctive adobe buildings and numerous yards, patios, paths, and gardens. The renowned architect Nathaniel Owings designed and built the estate as his private retreat, and in 2003, it underwent a tasteful remodel by the award-winning Beverly Spears. The main residence consists of two buildings — one housing two bedroom suites with a shared living area, the other a fabulous modern kitchen, a chic living and dining room, a sitting room, and a bath. Two smaller buildings could function equally well as offices, studios, or guest cottages, and the two-bedroom caretaker’s house would make a lovely private space for visitors. Doors, beams, and other details were collected from Las Trampas, Peñasco, and other locations around northern New Mexico. The pastoral village of Jacona is part of a vibrant agricultural valley. An acequia runs through the property, and a secluded pond is located at one end of the acreage, contributing to its lush greenery and idyllic character. The neighboring land is occupied by a well-known area farm. The estate is dotted with enchanting gardens and grassy lawns, and mature trees of all sorts tower overhead. Water rights are included.

A soaring ceiling with dramatic beamwork, a lengthy skylight, and wide-plank hardwood floors create an appealing ambience here.
