After a great day in Santa Fe, sink into the soothing bubbles of the hot tub under the stars at Tesoro Dorado. Featuring stunning views, a large deck, and luxe furnishings, it's ideal indoors and out!
Located in the Las Campanas neighborhood northwest of downtown Santa Fe, this New Pueblo-style home is set right into the foothills, surrounded by panoramic views with the mountains as your backdrop. Yet it's just a 15-minute drive to the Santa Fe Plaza! Here you are close to the city, the mountains, and all the beauty of northern New Mexico.
All the beautiful features of New Pueblo-style design can be found at Tesoro Dorado, from the elegant viga ceilings to a kiva fireplace in one corner of the living room. Big leather sofas invite you to take a minute's breather and enjoy the view or something fun on the large HDTV. The dining area, part of the large common area, includes a table that can be used for games, computers, and projects. There's room here for everyone to pursue favorite vacation activities without sacrificing the togetherness of the living space.
Windows and sliding doors onto the deck keep sunshine spilling into Tesoro Dorado year-round, and you are never far from a glimpse of beautiful scenery. Even the state-of-the-art kitchen, filled as it is with stainless-steel appliances, cookware and serving dishes, contains banks of windows from which to enjoy the scenery. Even if you don't plan to cook on this vacation, sneak into the kitchen and enjoy views in two directions as you whip up a pitcher of something delicious!
Getting a great night's sleep is so important while traveling, and you will love the accommodations at Tesoro Dorado. There are 3 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, appointed with all the linens, towels, and extra pillows and blankets you need to be comfortable in any season. Try to get to bed early at least one night -- it's difficult with all the fun things to do here! -- and don't be surprised when you oversleep, morning after morning. Rest like this is hard to come by, and must be treasured!
The master suite is a showplace, with a luxe king-sized bed in a handsome carved wood four-poster frame. A private HDTV keeps you entertained long into the night, or, if you want to get up and finish a book, a little alcove offers a soft reading chair and good light. Be sure to slip out through the sliders and enjoy the moonlit sky from the deck before you turn in. The clarity of the mountain air makes the stars shine in incredible numbers!
The master has an en-suite bathroom that will pamper you with a sunken tub (it, too, has windows for viewing the countryside, yet is wonderfully private), an open walk-in shower, and
dual sinks in beautiful southwestern designs. Both of you can get ready at once in this bathroom without the usual mumbled, "Excuse me's!"
The second and third bedrooms each feature a firm, oh-so-comfortable queen-sized bed with a private TV and plenty of storage space. Let the light spill in or darken these rooms completely for afternoon naps! They are quiet, soothing, and very likely to bring you an extra hour or two of shut-eye if you let them.
Tesoro Dorado has a washer and dryer for you to use, plenty of off-street parking, and numerous outdoor spaces that you will enjoy exploring. Part of the long covered deck overlooks the chaparral; turn the bend at the edge of the house and you will find the hot tub, steaming alluringly and ready to transport you into relaxation. A private backyard has seating in several areas, including a picnic table and loose chairs that can be arranged just as you like. So much to enjoy in the crisp mountain air at any time of day or evening!
This mountain hideaway is the perfect setting for your next vacation or family reunion. Whether you come to ski, sightsee, attend the opera, or shop, Santa Fe has a world of pleasures waiting for you. And there is no better way to enjoy them than from your charming roost at Tesoro Dorado!
