The 7+ acres of La Querencia, once owned by President Ulysses S Grant, shelters this eclectic Spanish hacienda known as Ana Paloma. The intentional fusion of artistic design and stout engineering make a masterful retreat for the ages. A compilation of iron, stone & wood is mirrored by decorative tile, hand stenciling & stained glass throughout. Inside La Querencia’s main gate a private world emerges amidst its wooded creek that parallels the long driveway before feeding a secluded wildlife pond bordered by towering cattails. The open air foyer leads to a central courtyard garden that is edged by deep shaded verandas, and around which the multi-winged estate is fashioned. The North Wing, or main house, encompasses a downstairs living room with open beam cathedral ceilings, 300sf front deck that overlooks the pond and surrounding hills, a Spanish country kitchen, and a large bed/bath that functions as a studio with it’s 20×12 retreat. Upstairs the master suite features an extended space with views, a walk-through closet, massive circular shower, and a 22×11 retreat. Ordained finishing include cherry wood floors, hammered metalwork, onyx stone & decorative mosaic tile. Located in the South Wing are 3 more bedrooms, each with their own bath, and consistent with Ana Paloma’s overall aesthetic. Connecting the main house and South Wing is the 24×15 Great Room. Designed to nurture a sense of Community, this common area is plumbed and wired for a butler’s pantry, showcases circular chandeliers, and opens to the central courtyard via double french doors. Large on-site workshop.
