Welcome to 1254 Spanish Hill, Santa Fe, New Mexico.  As you watch from the glistening waters of your infinity edged swimming pool, the porcelain moon rises in the East above the Santa Fe National Forest.  At the same time, the most staggering sunset views are on display and you can’t decide which is more amazing.  Your guests are just arriving and are greeted by two valets at the front door.  They have already become enchanted by the waterfall and they know that beyond the pair of carved and burnished elegant Classic Old World doors they are about to enter another world. Once in the Foyer, traditional Venetian glazed walls, travertine flooring and hand molded tile are introduced.  In the centerpiece of the foyer is a marble inlay in the flooring. Turning left into the Great Room one is captivated by the most astounding views in Santa Fe.  The mountains of Colorado are in sight as is the entire Rio Grande Valley.  The ceilings are twelve feet high with massive hand-carved beams and corbels.  The large and inviting   fireplace is ornately carved limestone.  There are 12 indoor and 2 outdoor fireplaces. An acanthus leaf motif adorns the two Tuscan style chandeliers.  Just about now you’ll want to catch your breath.  Located in the exclusive , gated development of The Summit, Spanish Hill Estate is 15,591 heated and cooled square feet built on two lots.  In the primary residence we’ll be seeing 5 bedrooms, 4 full baths, an elegant powder room, a gourmet kitchen, an office, a library, a safe room/darkroom, an exercise room, a game room with a wet bar and media room.  In addition, there is a 3 car garage, two complete guest houses and 12 indoor and 2 outdoor fireplaces.
