Recently improved with over $80,000 in upgrades, this 4,952sf Tuscan estate on 2.11 acres in Hacienda Santa Fe has the master suite downstairs for easy living, plus four other bedrooms and den.

Kitchen loaded with Tibetan Black Quartz from the Dalai Lama, himself. He told me “and when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness.” So you’ll have that goin’ for you, which is nice.
You’ve heard me say that I think it is my job to conduct a proper bidding war between all buyers and push for top dollar – and I will give them ample opportunity to pay it! In this case, it was 10% over list price.
