This gracious 6700-square-foot home, originally built in 1977 by the first curator of photography for the Museum of Modern Art, has drawn prominent artists, writers, musicians and photographers--including Ansel Adams, who was a regular guest at this beautiful 5.3-acre retreat. Combining the best of a Northern NM ranch style with clean contemporary lines, the main house was recently expanded with artful attention to detail. Clerestory windows, French doors, wrap-around porches, plaster walls, soapstone countertops, fine custom carpentry, and skylights galore all contribute to the unique aesthetic of this light-suffused home. Set under towering cottonwoods in rolling foothills threaded with hiking trails, this masonry, clad in stucco and rusted metal exteriors, elegantly exemplifies a modern ranch style. At night, enjoy a carpet of twinkling city lights. Inside, the 4 bedroom, 3 bath main home has a large open kitchen equipped with Viking and Bosch appliances, twin refrigerators and dishwashers, farmhouse sink, and generous walk-in pantry. The detached 700-sq ft casita is perfect for visiting family or a tranquil artist's retreat. The home offers solar in-floor radiant heat, evaporative cooling and a buried 5000-gallon rainwater collection vessel to irrigate gardens and orchard. When it's time to get creative, there are two inspiring office options. Or...fade into the landscape on the back portal and soak in the sunset as the next photograph or novel comes to life.
