5711 State Highway’s artistic provenance includes some of America’s finest names in art and letters; this picturesque 5-bedroom rammed-earth estate, comprised of two legal lots, was a writing sanctuary for Tony Award winning writer Bernard Pomerance. He finished the home with unique touches making it truly one-of-a-kind. The property is sited in a gentle valley in the Galisteo Basin with large shade and fruit trees, pitched roof portals and a veranda looking out upon the Ortiz Mountains; to the north, an outcropping of volcanic rocks form a ridgeback featuring 50,000 feet of sacred Native American petroglyphs. The 5 bedrooms/3-bathroom home has a vaulted-ceiling great room with a kiva fireplace and large east-facing windows. A private guest suite and 2 upstairs bedrooms are located on the east side of the house, accessed by a stairway off the great room. The master-suite, on the other side of the kitchen, creates the perfect separation for an artist or creative wanting complete privacy. The oversized bedroom with wood floors and an en-suite bathroom including a soaking tub lead to a private office/artist studio and a separate library with built-in book shelves. The romance of this property is in the details: a large stone rock garden with raised beds for growing organic vegetables, sweeping views, brick floors and the renowned artistic community of Galisteo, New Mexico are the perfect backdrop for this majestic sanctuary.
