Property Description

Unparalled in beauty and craftsmanship, this signature circa 1930s Pueblo Revival residence, sited on 11 lush, view-filled acres, has been fully restored and masterfully updated with three guesthouses, Classic Clay tennis court, heated swimming pool/spa and layered with stunning landscaping, an orchard and a prolific garden. Originally built by John Dempsey, New Mexico’s Governor in the 1940s, this property has been famed for its Santa Fe Opera parties throughout the decades and is lovingly called ‘The Opera House’. The main house ‘Casa Alegre’ has 6 bedrooms: 2 master suites with 3 private viewing balconies on the upper level, 2 guest bedrooms which were the original Governor Dempsey and Mrs. Dempsey rooms and 2 additional bedrooms with their own living/kitchen area. The 3 guesthouses, ‘Casita Bonita’, ‘Casita Chiquita’ and ‘Casita Dulce’ each have at least 1 bedroom/ 1 bathroom, a spacious living room, kitchen facilities and are beautifully appointed. The magnificently landscaped grounds are like a storybook tale, unfolding as you walk along the whimsical wood bark trails that traverse the property with acclaimed river rock walls lining the tennis court, the swimming pool and the south terrace. The highest level of craftsmanship is evident throughout this estate. Rich with Santa Fe history and renovated with a great passion for excellence, this exquisite estate is truly incomparable.
