    Hilltop: Salt Water Pool, Luxury Home, Staggering Views, Hot Tub, A/c, 17 Acres

    Adults-only Santa Fe vacation home in La Tierra with outdoor pool
    Perched atop a ridge on 17 juniper filled acres, Hilltop enjoys one of Santa Fe’s finest views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the east and splendid sunsets over the Jemez Mountains to the west. In summer, enjoy the large saltwater swimming pool, while taking in views of the desert and the mountains. In winter, sit in front of one of the home’s seven fireplaces or lounge in the hot tub, admiring the snowcapped vistas. Year round, use any of the home’s five patios to take in New Mexico’s brilliant sunlight during the day and the stars at night. The owners, a photographer and writer from New York, use Hilltop to display art from their collection that is appropriate for New Mexico’s culture and history. The works include paintings by 16th Century Roman and Florentine Renaissance Old Masters, plus 19th Century portraits of distinguished Spanish women. There are also works from the Cuzco School of the Spanish Colonial period. Among the contemporary items are works by noted Santa Fe artists. In honor of the Santa Fe Opera, Hilltop displays objects from the estate of Beverly Sills, the late coloratura soprano of the Metropolitan Opera and New York City Opera. The Persian rugs are about 100 years old. Sleeping eight, the interior of this elegant three bedroom home and its rustic one bedroom casita was created by a prominent designer from Austin. Centrally air conditioned and heated, the 2600 sq. ft. house and detached 560 sq. ft. casita abound in Spanish colonial furniture, along with antiques from around the world. The home is partially adobe, with plaster walls, wood and travertine floors in the main living areas, and new luxurious carpet in the bedroom suites. The two foot thick walls were designed to use energy sparingly, summer and winter. The formal living room with vaulted ceilings, oak floors and fireplace captures the glorious Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Also overlooking the Sangres and perched above the living space, the dining room has a kiva fireplace, beams and access to a delightful dining deck with majestic mountain vistas. The fully equipped kitchen with center island has a breakfast area with seated banco, a fireplace and coved ceilings. Adjoining the kitchen you have an intimate sitting area to watch TV. The bedrooms are separate from one another, affording everyone maximum privacy. The master bedroom suite sports a king bed, fireplace, TV, sitting area and large bathroom with walk-in shower, separate bath, and walk-in closet with built-in dresser. The second bedroom, near the pool, also has a king bed, fireplace, TV, and bath. The whimsically furnished third bedroom has a queen bed and nearby bath with shower that doubles as a powder room. To assure maximum comfort, all bedrooms are equipped with the same mattresses, pillows, and linens as the Four Seasons Resorts. The multiple outdoor spaces with saltwater pool, hot tub and decks are unparalleled in Santa Fe! The pool area includes a large covered portal, fireplace, gas grill, outdoor dining and chaises to relax or entertain in peaceful tranquility. Plenty of pool towels and pool accessories are provided. This is truly a secluded oasis combining water, desert, hills, and vistas. (The pool is open from sometime in May-September, weather permitting.) From the kitchen, a path takes you to the casita, providing privacy from the main home and the perfect spot for friends or staff. The Texas-themed casita has an open floor plan with vigas, Saltillo tiled floors, fireplace, and powerful mountain views from both the living and sleeping areas. The deck off the casita also has majestic views, just like the main house. The casita has its own kitchen and bath. Although the location is remote, private and serene, the home is only 16 minutes from the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Unlike similar homes in Santa Fe, there is a paved road right up to the driveway, assuring easy access any time of year. Two car garage available for parking. The home has central air conditioning and heating, and free Wi-Fi. Please, no pets or smokers.

      Santa Fe Holiday

      We had a wonderful time at the Hilltop! It is a beautiful and unique property with lovely furniture and artwork. The property really has thought of everything you could possibly need for your stay. It is in a secluded area with the closest store 20 minutes away so plan accordingly! With that said, getting to and from town is a breeze once you drive it a couple of times. The views from the house make it all worth it!! We enjoyed hanging out with family in the house, watching the sunsets and swimming in the pool. It was the perfect setting for our family getaway!

        Great house for 4 couples

        Our group of four couples had a fabulous week at hilltop. You do have to drive to go anywhere from there, but it’s not a long drive into town and elsewhere. The kitchen is incredibly well equipped, The pool was lovely to come back to in the afternoons. It was great watching the sunset and the sunrise.

          Outstanding! This beautiful property, and the pre-visit guidance and communication with of the property owners, were as described in other reviews. Wonderful experience, views, outdoor vistas, and accommodations. This is a premier property in Santa Fe. Our family of six adults, plus one grandchild had a fantastic time, and very much enjoyed the pool area, hot tub, kitchen, and the many outdoor sitting areas. We hired a florist, caterer, and photographer to enhance our overall experience, and had an absolutely wonderful Santa Fe family vacation at Hilltops. We had a few very minor issues (questions) when we arrived, and the local property manager was all over it immediately. Make sure you include dinner at Geronimo's, lunch at The Shed, and hikes at both Tent Rocks and Nambe Falls! Enjoy...and book this property immediately!

            Family Get Away

            This is an absolutely gorgeous home which is fully stocked with everything you could ever possibly need. Our family had an amazing vacation and we plan to return next summer. Thank you Bill and Karim for everything.

              So much more than even the pictures showed!

              Hilltop literally took our breath away when we first opened the door. The whole home has been decorated professionally and beautifully with gorgeous art works. All of the rooms (including the master bath!) are spacious and airy with spectacular views from every window. Terraces everywhere to sit and enjoy the spectacular view of the mountains. You really feel like you are in your own world as all the neighboring houses are few and in the distance, so it's a great place for de-stressing. Karim is the ideal "hostess" as she not only leaves detailed instructions about anything you'd need to know, but also has lists of GREAT recommendations for dining out, sightseeing, etc. We took her advice and dined at Arroyo Vino which is only about 7 minutes from the house: SPECTACULAR food, service and atmosphere.... one of our all time favorites! WE swam in the beautiful pool every morning (a perfect temperature), and watched the sunset from the hot tub every night; the perfect beginning and end of each day sightseeing. Hilltop is a very special place and I couldn't think of a more ideal way to discover Santa Fe! Thank you, Karim!!!
