Ottmar Liebert rose to fame in the 1990s with his swoon-worthy ‘nouveau flamenco’ acoustic guitar music; in the years since, he’s amassed four Grammy nominations and 38 gold and platinum album certifications in the U.S. alone and continues to tour around the world.
All that time, the German guitarist’s home base has been Santa Fe, New Mexico. Now he’s selling the custom home and detached private studio that he’s owned since 1992; the asking price is $1.4 million.
Inside Ottmar Liebert's Private Studio
Discussing the studio at 540 Camino Militar, the realty listing notes that “In addition to the highly customized, soft contemporary 3 bedroom home, the property has a state of the art heated and cooled recording studio (custom wired for analog or digital recording) that could easily be converted into an art studio or guest house.”
Nominated for a Grammy four times, Liebert has recorded 33 albums; 1996’s Opium was the first to be recorded at the Santa Fe studio, and 2004’s La Semana was the first that he engineered by himself.
The home has been remodeled to maximize space and light, and sits on a 1.2-acre property. Other spaces in the home include a media room, three-car garage, and a hot tub overlooking western views of Santa Fe and Jemez Mountains.
