Newly Listed | 16 Paseo del Venado
A Hint of Cowboy Chic
This pristine Northern New Mexico home is positioned to savor striking eastern-facing views and styled with architectural elements of a distinctively western bent. A pitched roof creates an upswell of ceiling space in the central living and dining area with heavy triangulated beams and dormer-styled clerestory windows creating dimension to the room as well as a profusion of natural light. Glass-paneled French doors play to the views and lead to a tiled portal with iron balustrades, split-rail banisters and a lower level enclosed outdoor patio with hot tub and dining area. The front entry’s cylindrical-shaped water feature is reiterated in the guest powder room, literally designed to suggest the room is located at the bottom of a well. Arches and coved ceilings throughout the home are widened to barrel dimensions to soften and balance the recurring application of strong square cut vigas and rough-hewn beams. A river of dark slate floor tiles leads to each of the bedroom wings fashioned with wood floors and diamond plaster walls of a variety of tempered hues. Two guest rooms – one featuring a mantle fireplace and other a bay window banco – both have wood floors, large reach-in closets, diamond plaster walls and share a full bath. The master suite also has a bay window alcove as well as entrance to a private portal, artisanal kiva, spacious walk-in closet and full bath. Also features a den, office, utility room and fully equipped kitchen with Shaker-style built-ins.
