Cinematic Style on Sundance
At the moment of meeting, from the circular drive to the entry portal and the grand living room graced with a commanding fireplace, high wood ceilings with vigas and a wall of windows and doors that open out framing stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, there is a cinematic beauty and scale to this outstanding home
Finding the point in design where Santa Fe meets Tuscany, the residence at 52 Sundance Drive is comprised of a 3-bedroom main house with view-filled gardens, patios and portals plus attached studio-guest quarters with a private entry and garden.
On 2.5 acres in the Sundance Estates community, constructed with “green” insulated concrete forms consisting of a 12” thick FASWALL wall system, with paved access and all utilities underground, it’s positively picturesque.
The front entry area, landscaped with fruit trees, Russian sage and native plantings will charm you. Once inside, the house unfolds with a gracious floorplan and attention to detail that sets it apart from the competition. The Living Room is spectacular. The story here begins with tall and sculpted windows that embrace the light and vistas. Elegant and at the same time rustic, there is room for two seating area, a grand piano or a living/dining combination. Talavera flooring, warm plaster surfaces and the rounded edges of this room and every room make the house special.
From the living room you can survey the home’s living areas. The rounded formal dining room, adorned with tall ceilings crisscrossed with wooden beams, flagstone flooring, clerestory windows and an alcove for art or a credenza, easily seats 8 to 10 people for dinner.
The chef’s kitchen features coved ceilings and vigas, a built-in breakfront, large butcher-block center island, a 6-burner Wolf range/oven, Subzero refrigerator/freezer and a petite wine room with under-counter temperature-controlled wine storage entered through a wrought-iron gate. The kitchen concludes with a gently curved dining alcove with fireplace and built-in seating banco for informal dining. Looking west to the Jemez Mountains, this is where family and guests will gather before dinner as meals are prepared and wine glasses are raised.
Equally as important, the opportunity for outdoor living abounds. Step outside from the living room or the kitchen. A deep portal affords a perch to enjoy the rolling, treed terrain and mountain vistas and listen to the sound of water from the garden fountain. There are three distinct garden areas that are each unique. Watch the weather and light change in the shade of the portal. This is Santa Fe living.
A circular skylight lit moment leads from the living room to the view-filled master suite with a gracious 16’ x 17’ sleeping room and seating alcove, 2 fireplaces, a sumptuous 14’x 18’ bath with river rock accents, a jetted tub, step-in shower and 2 closet areas. Nearby is the 9 x 12’ home office with built-in book case and desk.
Throughout the house are wrought iron flourishes and wonderful choices in tile and lighting fixtures. Off the kitchen there is a large pantry, a powder room, laundry room, and two guest bedrooms, each with bath and closet and direct access to the oversized 2-car garage.
The guest quarters are a nod to the Left Bank in Paris. Travelers can soak in the sumptuous bath and enter from the private entry. With closet and coffee/ small refrigerator set up for independent living, it can be found by crossing the rear portal or entered directly alongside the garage.
Just 15 minutes from the heart of Santa Fe, in the prized landscape northwest of town, this Sundance Estates residence unfolds like a well-told story on film.
