Description

Elegant and comfortable this 6,000+sq, 5 BR, 5BA ft is filled with many amenities. It is an European inspired design and is reminiscent of Mediterranean country homes. It's been developed for comfortable living and entertaining. The renovated home has incredible 360 views and large rooms throughout. A soaring entry opens to a formal living room, a Great Room, formal dining and kitchen plus a Butler's prep area. All 5 BR are ensuite and downstairs ones open onto the wrap around huge deck. Interior details are beautiful and must be seen to be appreciated. Garden areas are lovely and the 2 Acre lot is surrounded by mature native Pinon Pine and Juniper trees which do not obscure views. There are 2 garages and a 4 car carport. Los Alamos County Schools are some of the best in the US. and with little crime in the county, it's great for families or retirees. White Rock has a large library and a grocery plus restaurants and other businesses. There's also a visitor center for Bandelier National Monument. In 1992 the present owner and her husband, an award winning contractor/builder, purchased the property and began major renovations and additions. The transformation of the original 1800 sq ft cedar sided house built in 1978 into a 6,000 sq ft stuccoed, red concrete tiled roof, formal home took several years. The dramatic multi-story entry was the inspiration for the rest of the house and the huge wrought iron chandelier came from a demolished mansion in Hollywood. The interior detailing is exquisite and shows extraordinary craftsmanship. The fireplace design was inspired by one in the artist Fechin's Taos home. For 6 years, the owners operated Castillo del Alba, a 3 BR B&B and hosted guests from all over the world. Guests included Nandor Balaz Einstein's last associate at Princeton. Designed to be welcoming for other activities, the sunken formal living room with a raised platform was used by the Santa Fe Opera Apprentices performances and other musical or speaking events. The 3 compartments in the walk out basement include a wine cellar and built in shelving. There is a bedroom designed so its location offers privacy and can be used for Nanny or Caretaker quarters. Above all other aspects, it is a comfortable and beautiful home in a superb location in the White Rock suburb of Los Alamos, NM.
