Artfully designed to capture sweeping views of the La Plata Mountains, Mesa Verde and Sleeping Ute, this single level 2 bedroom with a large office built for two, 2.5-bathroom custom built adobe residence situated on 57 beautifully secluded acres echoes the Old World cultural region, while incorporating modern finishes. With 20 shares of Montezuma Valley Irrigation water and 4 city water taps, this property has an abundance of water to support the 15-acre Alfalfa field, along with an organic garden and a large pond. The home radiates a southwest elegance the moment you enter, with brick and hardwood floors, wood ceilings, recycled hand hewn oak beams throughout, upscale finishes, a large adobe Rumford fireplace, and active solar to supply hot water for the in-floor radiant heat and domestic hot water (showers, laundry, etc.). The red brick floors add color to the neutral clay plaster walls that have specs of mica, adding a little sparkle. The ceiling beams are large recycled utility poles from the desert, and there are numerous art niches of varying sizes along the walls of the home to display art or keepsakes. At the heart of the home is the kitchen with a delightful blend of modern conveniences, highlighted by stainless steel GE five-burner gas stove, a large maple top island with bar sink, custom cabinetry and a deep under-mount Kohler sink. A graciously proportioned great room with large windows that allow the views to seep into the home can be enjoyed by the window seat with storage underneath.
