About the property

4,800 Sq. Ft. Nanny Apartment, Outdoor Dining, Spa and Steam Shower

Location: North Hills, Santa Fe, New Mexico, USA (2 Miles from the Plaza)

Accommodations:  House with attached apartment, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Casa Encantado is situated on 4.5 acres just a five minute drive from The Plaza. The four thousand + square foot house is nestled into the pinons, giving the residents a feeling of complete solitude. The territorial-style home was built in the early 1950's, and was remodeled in 2000 to have plaster walls, beautiful hardwood floors, travertine tiles in the bathrooms, and slab granite countertops in the kitchen.

The decor is tastefully done in Santa Fe style with over-stuffed leather pieces, kilim covered occasional chairs, distressed pine dining table, antler chandelier, Indian drum coffee table, and Remington bronze statues throughout, just to mention a few of the touches you will find here. You will be able to sleep ten people very comfortably.

 You enter the home through a beautiful set of double pine doors with peek-a-boo windows. Just off the foyer is a quiet study with a desk where you will find a home office with internet, printer and fax.

You move into the living room from the foyer which has a conversation area in front of the fireplace, a game table, and a baby grand piano for entertainment. The dining table which seats up to ten is just off of the side of the living room, with French doors leading out to the expansive outdoor portal.

Leading into the kitchen is a wet bar butler's pantry, and a powder room. The kitchen has a large butcher block island with two stools, and is completed with all the very best appliances in stainless steel.

There is also outdoor dining under the portal with a propane bar-b-q grill. 

You step down off the flagstone portal onto the patio which is appointed with outdoor chairs and chase lounges. When the evening chill sets in, you can light up a fire in the outdoor fireplace which is overseen by another beautiful bronze of an Indian mother with her baby. Just inside attached to the master suite, is an entertainment room with Direct TV and Blu-Ray DVD. There is a stone fireplace in the corner, three Eames chairs to relax in, as well as a super comfy sofa covered in fun leopard print velvet. There is also another wet bar, so you don't have to go to far for a refreshment.. The master bedroom has a antique pine four poster king-size bed, furnished with fabulously comfortable linens and pillows. There is a kiva fireplace, a 27 inch television with cable and VCR, and several chairs to relax in. The master bathroom is decked in travertine tile, and boasts a huge double shower which can be filled with water and used as a tub.

The second bedroom has a queen size antique sleigh bed, and full bath.

The lower level has a fitness room, laundry facilities, and steam and regular shower in the bathroom. There are two bedrooms on the lower level with two twin beds in each room.

Casa Encantado also has an attached apartment approximately 1000 sq. ft., which has a full bath, full kitchen, big screen TV, stone fireplace, queen-size bed, and a billiard table.

- Children are welcome. Please take care of the valuables within the house, keeping them out-of-reach when necessary.
- No one under 18 is allowed in the Hot Tub without adult supervision

Peace just minutes from the Plaza

  • 5 of 5

The stars sure shine brightly at this home. We couldn't have asked for a more beautiful home, and loved using the outdoor spaces to eat and hang out. It's located just outside the Plaza so you're close to everything but enjoy the seclusion.

Great Location - Just Little Stuff

  • 4 of 5

While Casa Encantado is located on a beautiful property, the house itself needs some maintenance. Let me say that the property manager was very responsive to a major maintenance issue we had, and over the course of our first two days stay, the plumbing issue was repaired. There were a number of smaller issues that weren’t critical to our stay particularly, but more an annoyance and not worth interrupting our vacation time with more maintenance workers moving around the house with our entire family there. Things like one of the oven temperature read outs wasn’t working, after a 2 hour power loss(not the owners fault) the microwave didn’t work, outside pathway lights -some worked others not. It should also be noted that for a large home like this, the apartment size washer and dryer are just inadequate. All that said, we enjoyed the spacious home and fantastic outdoor patio. There was also plenty of firewood for indoor and outdoor fires almost daily!

Classic Santa Fe house close to town

  • 5 of 5

This is a large rambling house loaded with western and southwestern art and comfortable western style furniture. It has two indoor and 1 outdoor wood burning fireplaces and a great hot tub. It was cozy and the kitchen is fully equipped. Our family of 5 enjoyed our stay there.

A few things to be aware of. The two downstairs rooms have two single beds each and one is accessed by going through the other. The hot water heating makes quite a bit of noise in the downstairs area when it comes on.

Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

The House was well located and had lots of room for our family for Thanksgiving. The kitchen was great for cooking. The pool table and hot tub were great too. We really enjoyed our stay.

Such a perfect weekend in October spent with family!

  • 5 of 5

The house is amazing but even if it wasn’t the back yard would make up for it. The fire place in the yard works great and we had a nice evening making s’mores. The house is well stocked and can easily accommodate multiple families. Highly recommend this property.
