The impressive Tierra Sagrada, is an approximately 17-acre estate property situated in the pastoral beauty of The Water Drinking Place, known as the Pojoaque Valley just a 20 minute drive north of Santa Fe. Consisting of two separately deeded lots, the property is situated under the impressive backdrop of the Las Barrancas Badlands (sacred Native American land) to the west and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains to the east. This architecturally significant property consists of a 5 bedroom/4-1/2 bath main house,2 bedroom/1 bath guest house, hacienda style building with several bedrooms and baths, as well as a large retreat building of exceptional scale and significance. The sprawling property was designed and built between 1995-2002 with nods to Asian,Moroccan and Indonesian influence. Infused with an atmosphere of serenity and repose, the main home is astutely sited to take advantage of a pristine outdoor living space filled with multiple water features and a large koi pond, natural sitting areas, a large,covered terrace with outdoor kitchen and lush landscaping. Additional improvements include a studio, barn, aviary, vineyard, open field and large pond filled by the Acequia de las Joyas which draw a plethora of birds (irrigation water rights included). Stone and water features, as well as flagstone pathways meander through the estate all with their own contemplative areas and quiet spaces for guests amid large and well established fruit trees and majestic cottonwoods.
