As you enter the estate on a meandering drive through the desert you can understand why this home is so special. This one-of-a-kind property, designed by Jacqueline Caruso Larsen, AIS and built by Roger Ries of NEB construction, sits on 20 acres of beautiful desert that rises above the valley on the south and is surrounded by mountains on three sides. The front courtyard showcases a fireplace, fountain, and multiple seating areas to enjoy the sunset while sipping a glass of wine. Designed with our desert climate in mind, the Saltillo tiles and flagstone like tiles of cast concrete stand up to the elements and passively reflect the suns warmth through the home’s French doors during the winter. The boomerang design maximizes the homes views and privacy from the pool, spa, fire ring and guest casita. Within the home, most rooms have spectacular views of the mountains and desert. The great room features twelve-foot-high ceilings and a massive two-sided masonry fireplace which defines the formal living and dining areas that include custom cabinets created on site with mesquite wood from Arizona. Centrally located within the home is a large working kitchen with island, custom mesquite cabinetry, Viking stove, and Sub-Zero refrigerator. Adjacent to the kitchen is a family room with built-in seating and a fireplace that opens to the pool area. The guest suite has a Murphy bed, built-in cabinetry and French doors leading to the front patio. Inside the master suite is a built-in custom designed space for a king-sized bed and nightstands. It also has a fireplace, spacious dressing room complete with mesquite cabinets, and large bathroom with two sinks, bathtub, and walk in shower with slate tile. In addition, there is a private patio and viewing deck to enjoy the dark skies. Covered patios along the back of the house provide protection for lounging around the BBQ area and bar. Set apart from the main house, the Casita has two bedroom suites, a fireplace, separate entry ways, and a coffee bar with refrigerator, microwave, and sink. This beautiful pueblo design emulates those of the past by utilizing 10” round vigas or exposed ceiling beams, Saltillo tile floors, custom ceramic tile design, bullnosed corners, niches slate and Taos blue trim on windows and Southwest doors. Full RV hook ups and owned solar system.
