Magical New Mexican Compound, Casas de los Santos, located in the Village of Los Ranchos. This custom home was built by builder H.L Cleff for clients that wanted a true New Mexican living experience. Sited on 1.25 acres filled with large trees, an English garden, and gated courtyard, the property consists of 5 separate buildings including a studio, each built to showcase New Mexico’s unique architecture. The main home built in 1999 is reminiscent of Albuquerque’s old Alvarado Hotel with gracious portals, doors to the verdant gardens from almost every room, 4 bedrooms, two of which are master bedrooms, 3.5 baths all with today’s amenities. The Mission Casa harkens back to John Gaw Meem’s iconic New Mexico churches and can be used for an artist haven/studio, a study, or other residential purposes and also has potential as a wedding venue. 20 foot ceilings, 2 lofts, 2 baths, and kitchen complete this space. Two casitas, the Garden Cottage and the Tower Cottage, open onto manicured English gardens with each providing comfortable living space for guests or family with bath, kitchenette, a fireplace and a patio. The 4 car garage has an attached studio with glass garage door, private 1/2 bath and separate entrance. This property can be used for a variety of purposes and is zoned for use as a bed and breakfast; a new owner would need to apply for and obtain appropriate permits from the Village of Los Ranchos. A very special property for a very lucky buyer.
