This glorious adobe home offers a big lawn, bird-friendly garden, hot tub, and 5 fireplaces! Pinon Sanctuary is your ideal getaway for luxury and quiet!
When you think of Santa Fe property, you might not picture a beautiful fenced yard with gorgeous landscaping, birdfeeders, and a brick patio -- yet that's what you'll find at cheery Pinon Sanctuary! Bordering the Tony Tesuque neighborhood in northern Santa Fe, Pinon Sanctuary offers breathtaking views of the sunrise (set an alarm to see them; the comfy beds will have you oversleeping every morning otherwise!) and a thickly wooded lot where nature abounds. Such a perfect blend of convenience to the city and abundance of greenery and wildlife! Bring your binoculars, your Peterson's Guides, and maybe even a camera for close-ups of flowers, birds, and more.
This house sleeps 8 comfortably in two bedrooms and two queen-sized sleeper sofas (each in a different room), and 3 full baths accommodate everyone easily. Pinon Sanctuary is far more than just a place to sleep and shower before heading out to your New Mexico adventures. It's an adventure in itself, just made for big groups who enjoy the togetherness that traveling together brings . . . with more than a little luxury, of course!
There are two main living areas in this house. The big common room greets you first, with its charming kiva fireplace, multiple glass doors and transoms, big flat-panel TV/DVD player, and comfy chairs. Slip off your shoes and feel the pleasant brick tiling while the kids make a dash for games and toys and the grown-ups unpack a few groceries in the splendid kitchen. Is that the blender, already mixing up something frothy to go with the gourmet nibbles you picked up on the way in?
The living room invites your group to stay together long after supper, enjoying a favorite movie, watching a game on TV, or playing a quick round of Telestrations or Apples to Apples. If anyone needs a bit of privacy, there's also a beautiful private study, complete with another fireplace, sink-right-in sofas, a flat-screen TV, and vibrant artwork. Maybe this is the spot for those long, meandering conversations that turn out to be the best part of the whole vacation . . . or an entertainment room for the kids and teens, separate from the adults'. However you use these rooms, it's so nice to have a choice at Pinon Sanctuary!
Adjacent to the living room is the kitchen and dining room areas. You may have vowed never to lift a spatula while on vacation, in which case Pinon Sanctuary might be a source of temptation. Nobody can resist the beauty and top-of-the-line fittings of this sunny, large, well-appointed room! From the double oven to the island with gas cooktop to the huge windows overlooking the garden, the kitchen is designed to entice you to culinary glory . . . Still not interested?! Okay -- it's also a great place for on-the-go cuisine. Microwave leftovers, brew
coffee and be on your way in minutes to the glorious restaurants and cafes of Santa Fe!
The dining table is soaked in the sunshine in an open area overlooking the patio and backyard. Seating 6 comfortably, it also transforms into a game center or command post for planning the next day's expeditions.
When it's time to retire for the night, rest assured that everyone has a great place to sleep at Pinon Sanctuary. Both the living room and study have queen-sized sleeper sofas, with all linens (plus extra pillows and blankets -- who uses just one pillow anymore?!) provided. These rooms have easy access to a full bathroom with tub and shower combos. And then there are the two suites . . .
The master suite pampers you with a king-sized bed, kiva fireplace, three walls of windows offering glorious garden views, a big flat-screen TV, and a deep reading chair. The en-suite bath has a deep sunken tub overlooking the patio and dual sinks for quickened get-ready time. You may find yourself making excuses to retire early, just to enjoy every inch of this palatial suite!
The guest suite is similarly luxe, with a queen-sized bed, kiva fireplace, and en-suite bath featuring a walk-in tiled shower. Both suites are bright and full of sunlight during the day but become quiet, dark, and peaceful for the perfect night's sleep.
Of course, you may find yourself spending much of your waking time at Pinon Sanctuary enjoying the fenced backyard. From the patio (with umbrella table, plenty of chairs, and gas grill) to the luxurious and quite private hot tub, this big garden defines "sanctuary" Bird feeders are frequented by all the local flyers, the grass is made for bare feet, and the plants bloom seasonally in glorious colors. Find your favorite spot at Pinon Sanctuary and feel the stress of everyday life dissolve in beautiful Santa Fe!
