In the rural countryside of Jacona, en route to Los Alamos, this 2.454-acre romantic, lush estate is a secluded private oasis that envelops five adobe buildings and numerous colorful lawns, patios, paths, mature trees, and gardens. The main residence consists of two buildings -- one housing two bedroom suites, the other a fabulous modern kitchen, a chic living and dining room, a sitting room, and a bath. Two smaller buildings would function equally well as offices, studios, or guesthouses, and the two-bedroom caretaker's house would make a lovely private space for visitors. An acequia runs through the property, and a secluded pond is located at one end, contributing to the land's greenery and idyllic character. The acreage is dotted with enchanting gardens and grassy lawns, and mature trees of all sort tower overhead.
The areas to the north between Santa Fe and Taos possess some of the most spectacular and varied landscapes in New Mexico. Beautiful communities line the Taos Gorge and the Rio Grande like Espanola, Velarde & Dixon along what is called the ‘Low Road’ to Taos.
The ‘High Road’ is a scenic, winding road through the Sangre de Cristo Mountains that runs between Santa Fe and Taos.
