The warm, earthy tones and rustic authenticity that characterize this home begin in the foyer, which in the fashion of a classic zaguan, stretches from the entry to the doors opening to the rear courtyard. Its rustic wooden door, ceramic tile floors, coved ceiling with sturdy vigas, and numerous skylights establish the unique Santa Fe–style ambience that can be felt throughout the home. The main formal living spaces flow graciously from this space. At the further end is a generous area of built-in storage cabinets.
