Far Niente is perched upon a small bluff adjacent to a large open space area leading down to the Rio Grande Gorge. The home’s location is stunning, and the design takes into account the natural beauty all around. Mountain views are a main driver of the orientation of this 3 bed, 2 bath home with detached studio. The main house is just under 3000 square feet of heated area with entry courtyard and 2 large sweeping covered portals. The star gazers courtyard is settled against the west facing façade with outdoor firepit under the open New Mexico sky. The detached studio is about 500sf of open floor plan oriented to the Western Jemez mountain views through a wall of windows. Far Niente is the ideal Santa Fe custom home for experiencing the sweetness of a simpler life.
