The stunning 360-degree views from this charming Talpa Foothills location are mesmerizing! Renovated in 2019, this three-bedroom and two-bath, 1,866-square-feet split-bedroom floorplan with two living spaces is oriented toward the famous mountain and sunset views found only in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains.


Large kitchen has cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, large double pantry, and a skylight and center island with spacious storage.  Renovated master bathroom has large shower and a Japanese Toto toilet with heated seat and pressure controls. Third bedroom has separate entrance, which would be great for a vacation rental, separate studio or caretaker’s separate living area. Large living area with wood beams and separate dining area provides a lovely vantage point to enjoy the gardens.


The entire 2-acre property is fenced, gated, and landscaped with a breathtaking array of mature pinon, aspen, and pine. The newly installed large Arizona flagstone courtyard is perfect for entertaining or simply relaxing under the starlit sky.


Outdoor spaces abound including a koi pond, hot tub, another flagstone patio with latilla fencing, and greenhouse with its own water, electric, propane and auto thermostat for control. The horse property also has a two-horse-stall building and riding ring in addition to a separate storage shed, and oversized two-car garage with large storage area. Well-maintained gravel circular driveway allows for easy access in and out of the property.


Irrigation system was installed in 2018 as well as a backup generator for the entire house, excluding the garage. Current owners installed the property’s own well, so the property no longer has to share a well with neighbors. Kit Carson fiber optics available at the street, and cell phone service on site. Sellers are offering a $3000 carpet allowance.


Conveniently located in the highly desirable foothills near the hospital, golf course and road to Santa Fe, this home is off a dead-end road, so no constant road noise, and is near the Carson National Forest with hiking and horse trails for endless outdoor adventures. Stunning mountain, foothill, sunrise and sunset views, this house has it all!
