Overview

About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Loft + Den, 4 Bathrooms, (Sleeps 10-14)

Welcome to your own private desert resort. This 5-bedroom luxury home overlooking the Rio Grande Valley, Jemez Mountains, and the Black Mesa. Includes an outdoor hot tub, outdoor fire-pit, indoor sauna, private flagstone patio, vine-covered pergola, a rock goldfish pond, custom-made iron gates, and breathtaking views from nearly every window.

Designed by the Chicago architect William Keck in 1942, the passive-solar building originally was the Los Alamos schoolhouse (where the children of the Manhattan Project studied) before being moved to this spur of land above the Rio Grande. The modern kitchen includes a double oven and a copper-hooded restaurant-style stove, while the dining room seats 12 and has a massive stone fireplace. Navajo rugs, art pieces, and paintings decorate the house, which includes a sunny living room (also with a fireplace) and a private study, while the bedrooms and four full bathrooms are each furnished in a distinct style. A sun room leads out to the patio, hot tub and views. Both wings have their own master bedroom with private bath, as well as a washer dryer.

A short stroll through the cottonwoods takes you to the Rio Grande; the famous El Santuario de Chimayo is 15 minutes away, Santa Fe is a beautiful 25-minute drive, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs is 30 minutes away, and Taos lies 45 minutes to the north as does Georgia O'Keefe's Ghost Ranch. Three ski areas are in the vicinity as well. But you may want to stay home and enjoy the views.

We own and operate a Professional Photography business as well. www.dhamkhalsa.com

We specialize in Family and Wedding photography.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks so much. We had a fabulous weekend!



This house is wonderful. The views are breath-taking, hot tub was good and really enjoyed. The walk to the river was just right. Your house is amazing, gourmet kitchen, antiques and light fixtures, navajo rugs and pots, art and photos so special. Large table and plenty of dishes was so appreciated, beds and bedding, bathrobes and plenty of showers/tubs/sauna was perfect for our retreat.

Amazing location and home

  • 5 of 5

We booked this home because of the location – central to Santa Fe, Taos, Los Alamos, Bandelier, Ghost Ranch and lots of rocks for collecting - all of which were on our list to enjoy. Turns out, that was a great decision for our 3 generation ( 2-72 yrs) family outing. But it was so much more. In addition to the great views (as advertised) of Black Mesa, we rambled daily to the Rio Grande, the kids played in the large yard, the kitchen is outfitted with high quality everything any cook could want, Amrit responded quickly to every question and the house is spacious and clean. We hope to be back as soon as possible.

Beautiful views and home

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at Amrit's home! The amenities and the home itself were wonderful, and the views from the property were gorgeous. It's far out of the way, but we enjoyed how quiet the area was. Thanks for allowing us to stay!

Loved this sanctuary!

  • 5 of 5

I was in a group of four couples that wanted to relax for the weekend. What a lovely treat to spend the weekend here. It's a little out of the way, which suited our group. We hiked closer to Santa Fe during the day and then retreated back to this cozy spot to spend the evenings around the outside fire pit gazing at the stars.

BEST View from the backyard!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here in Sept 2017. There were 7 of us and we totally enjoyed ourselves. We would definitely stay here if we went back to New Mexico.

First of all, the house was very comfortable & clean. It was stocked with all the basic needs - shampoo, soap, toilet paper...The kitchen had everything you needed & very well stocked with spices, foil,....which was so nice. There was enough seating areas where you could sneak away if you needed some quite time. The indoor sauna was wonderful to use after a day of hiking. The location of the house was very convenient for us being that it was in between Sante Fe & Taos.

Second, the owner was TOTALLY accommodating & very quick to respond to any & all requests & questions.

The third and last, the VIEW from the back yard was amazing. It was our favorite part of the house & trip.
