Come to this luxe house on 10 acres of unspoiled land and enjoy magnificent sunsets and sweeping views of mountains, hills, and valley. Two living rooms, a gourmet kitchen, and comfy
Sunset Haven earns its name every day with world-class views of the sinking sun. Located just southeast of Santa Fe, this beloved family home is just a 15-minute drive from the Plaza, but you will feel miles from everywhere when you stroll the beautiful grounds and watch the light change on the hillsides. This is an older home, built for comfort and ease, from the covered walkway (so welcome in all seasons!) to the large, angled deck with its rock-star vista of the sunset.
There's room for the whole gang to spread out and get comfortable at Sunset Haven. Settle into the formal living room with comfy sofas and chairs gathered around a fireplace, or opt for the den with a leather sectional in front of a big HDTV, a shuffleboard game, and a bistro table and chairs for two. Whether your passion is reminiscing with loved ones, playing video games, or rediscovering the joy of backgammon, Sunset Haven has a pleasant spot just right for you!
And when the group gets peckish, explore the fine kitchen at Sunset Haven to make short work of any cooking you might need to do. Stainless-steel appliances, tiled backsplashes, a big breakfast bar that doubles as a workstation island, dropped lighting, and cabinets packed with cookware, serving dishes, and utensils -- everything is waiting for you here! Pick up a few groceries on the way in, and you will find yourself equipped to do anything from chopping to blending to baking. Nothing is more fun, during a busy vacation, then a night "in" with creative appetizers and drinks whipped up from whatever's in the fridge.
Of course, if you actually want to dine in style as a group, gather in the sunny dining room at Sunset Haven and feast to your heart's content! The views will keep you interrupting one another to point out spectacular changes in the sky, and before you know it, you may have cleared away the dishes and set up a board game, ready for a night of family fun.
Chances are, though, you will want to dine al fresco as often as possible at Sunset Haven. There's simply no resisting this big, wide-open deck, with plenty of seating, bistro tables, and views from many angles. Prepare to dazzle the folks back home with photos of your mountains and rolling foothills!
When the final glass has been drained and everyone has wished on a star (or perhaps been lucky enough to see one shoot through the velvety black sky), it's time for bed. This is a special treat for the youngest members of your group, who will thrill to their large "clubhouse" room with 2 sets of bunkbeds. A twin-sized mattress on top and a double on the bottom means that you can sleep many ankle-biters in these 2 sets of bunks. And there is still floor space to set up race car tracks and play houses, so the kids can entertain themselves while the grown-ups sleep late one morning!
In addition to the kids' quarters, you will find 3 more bedrooms at Sunset Haven, each with a queen-sized bed, plenty of windows, and closets to stash all that ski equipment or hiking gear. The master suite is set up so that you can watch the sun set right from the bed -- or, if that's not close enough, slip out the door to the deck for a better view! The ensuite bath offers a walk-in shower, and of course every bed and bath here at Sunset Haven is equipped with linens, towels, and spares. Snuggle up and enjoy your rest after a busy day in Santa Fe!
The other two bedrooms are equally well-appointed, and Sunset Haven boasts 4 full bathrooms, so there are always plenty of open doors during the morning rush. Tubs as well as showers are available, suiting everyone's needs. We even have a big laundry room for your use, with washer and dryer.
Next time you travel to Santa Fe, treat yourself to a stay at Sunset Haven. This location combines the feeling of "getting away from it all" with the practicality of a quick drive to the heart of the city. Beautiful, lavishly appointed, and ready for your big group, this house is the perfect venue for your northern New Mexico adventures.
