Inside of Home

This magnificent home has a grand entrance through a hand-carved cypress door with hand forged fixtures reminiscent of old world castles. One enters this grand home into a large foyer with tall ceilings and artisan interior finishes. The interior walls are primarily plaster over masonry and frame and boast quality seldom seen in new construction.

Italian tile floors welcome you as your turn and enter the Gallery on the first floor. This Gallery was designed and built to showcase artwork and does a magnificent job at doing so. Step down two steps into the Gallery and be awed by the soaring ceilings and massive hand-carved ceiling beams. The Gallery features nichos for artwork with built-in lighting to showcase the artwork.

A massive fireplace gives a sense of architectural focus and provides a wonderful aesthetic amenity when cold days come. Adjacent to the Gallery is the formal dining room featuring a pair of exquisite stained-glass windows from a European castle. A nicho for artwork is prominently featured.

In immediate proximity to the formal dining room is the workplace kitchen. Abundant storage will accommodate all kitchen tools and utensils. A breakfast nook inside the kitchen offers informal dining when a formal dining room is not necessary. Adjacent to the kitchen and formal dining room is a small private room that has served as a home office but could easily be transformed into part of the kitchen.

Through the kitchen, one enters a masterpiece of old world quality craftsmanship. The Library is truly a masterpiece of woodworking. Featuring all Cherry wood, the Library features 10-foot coffered ceilings, scores of built-in Cherry bookcases and a magnificent Cherry fireplace. Finally, the Library also features an exquisite built-in wet bar, again featuring beautiful Cherry wood and an Italian tile bar top. Hand carved Cherry wood wine racks offset a beautiful mirrored centerpiece.

Finally, this magnificent home features a beautiful artisan workshop/studio. With southerly facing floor to ceiling windows, this studio produces great wintertime heat while providing natural light to the studio year around.

A breezeway connects the home to an oversized three car garage surrounded by a beautiful courtyard.

All of this beauty, craftsmanship, and comfort can be located on one acre or 9.6 acres, as the purchaser wishes. This Estate is located in the very desirable northwest area of Roswell, New Mexico…close in, but very private.

While we have done our best to describe this showpiece Estate, nothing substitutes for a personal visit to enjoy and appreciate quality and craftsmanship that words have difficulty capturing. Come, ……see for yourself!
