A dirt road leads to an important property in Arroyo Hondo having once been the original ranch house of the sprawling Droege Ranch. The property consists of a main house, a large piano studio designed by Elisabeth Wagner, and a complex of stables, hay shed, round pen, and bunkhouse. Stunning natural beauty surrounds this magical 10+ acre compound. Brimming with wildlife, “Las Hierbas” beckons those who love to entertain, hike, bike, horseback ride, walk or wander the many trails crisscrossing Arroyo Hondo. The property enjoys its own well with three acre feet of water. Views of all our mountains ranges are unrivaled. Custom details abound throughout the main house: antique beams, plaster walls, brick floors and lighted nichos. The entry portal is lovely and allows the house to open up as you enter. Highlighting the living room are built-in shelves and an oversized fireplace that welcomes one to stay awhile. Coved ceilings and brick floors accent the posts and corbels that separate the living room and dining room. Floor-to-ceiling windows look out onto mature gardens, trees, stone patios and spectacular views. The perfectly outfitted kitchen has a butler’s pantry and informal dining area adjacent to a kiva fireplace. The kitchen is clearly designed for ease of use with plenty of room to work and visit. It opens onto the dining portal with another kiva fireplace and a garden area that leads to a unique, natural stone water fountain that blends with the lush, natural landscape around it. One wing of the house has an ensuite bedroom  with portal and attached garage. The second wing has a bedroom with fireplace, bath, gym, study, media room and powder room. The master suite is nicely separated on the second floor and features a fireplace, private deck and treetop views all the way to Albuquerque. A large walk-in cedar closet has plenty of storage and a well-designed master bath offers gorgeous southern views. The studio has a myriad of possibilities: art studio, music studio, guest quarters for parents or friends, a playroom for children... or adults! The stable has four stalls and a garage big enough to service the horses and riding area. The caretaker’s house is conveniently attached and features a great room, separate bedroom, bathroom and laundry room. The main house has a large two car garage and storage room. There is also, hidden from view, a very large two-car carport near the main house.
