About the property

Uniquely designed 2-Bedroom, 1-bath adobe casita (sleeps 4-6), stunning views

This 2-bedroom, 1-bath contemporary adobe casita guest home sits on five acres high on a ridge-top just two miles north of Santa Fe, at 7,000'.

The striking 360-degree high-desert views include the famed Sangre de Cristo Mountains' ski hill to the east, west across the Rio Grand Valley to Los Alamos and the Jemez Mountains, and extending all the way north to Colorado.

Arroyos, canyons, ridges, mesas, and mountains surround the casita -- the vistas are unique to northern New Mexico, and the guest house is perfectly sited to take advantage of the breath-taking beauty.

Designed by esteemed Chicago architect Jim Nagle, whose homes have been featured in Architectural Digest, this romantic hideaway has everything you need for graceful living.

The complete kitchen features a French Gascon blue limestone countertop and top-of-the-line appliances. Jim Nagle described it as "an entire kitchen in one elegant island."

The exquisite interior walls are hand-plastered with custom colors throughout.The master bedroom features a king-size bed complete with upscale Ralph Lauren bedding, and sheets from Tuscany and Venice.

The expansive deck, which runs the length of the house, is perfect for watching the hummingbirds against the backdrop of northern New Mexico's magnificent sunsets.

Everything you need for barbecuing is in place ... all you have to do is fire up the grill!

You'll love the breath-taking views of the Santa Fe Opera House, the Jemez Mountains, and the Tesuque valley.

And it's a very special experience to watch the occasional thunderstorm moving across the vast expanse of the northern New Mexico sky.

If you visit in winter, you'll cozy up next to the custom-made fireplace in the living room, with its enormous windows allowing you to enjoy the exquisite vistas and scenic mesas.

Year-round, you can hike the private trails right outside your front door, cross-country ski in the arroyo just below your home-away-from-home. You and your family will enjoy an unforgettable stay in this peaceful, quiet getaway.

Furnishings and accessories have been collected from all around the world by Terry. The casita is full of Moroccan lanterns, Thai silks, and dishes and furniture from Mexico, all complementing the warm, natural materials and high-end finishes throughout the guest house.

Birds and wildlife abound in this exclusive, million-dollar neighborhood. Tesuque is an extraordinarily beautiful village, renowned for the old-growth cottonwood trees lining the narrow valley’s creeks.

Tesuque is rich with pinon pines, junipers, cedars, cottonwoods, and aspens ... all because of the year-round streams running through its picturesque canyon.

Perfect for a solitary writer's retreat, romantic getaway, or your next family reunion, this place has it all.

And best of all, this lovely retreat is just five minutes away from all the Santa Fe action.

Terry loves dogs; he's happy to host your four-legged companion.

He's also been known to cook one of his gourmet meals for folks, including the best calabacitas in the state.

He's on-site, and takes great care to create special experiences for his guests. Terry's always ready to answer any questions about the area. He's taken folks to his secret fly-fishing spots, and into town for the insiders' live-jazz nights at the local tapas bar.

He's stocked the casita with fiction and non-fiction books, reflecting his eclectic travels around the world. There's a stereo for your pleasure, along with some of Terry's favorite jazz and bossa nova cd's.
