Award-winning architect Elisabeth Wagner designed this serene, light-filled adobe as her private residence. She applied distinctive details and finishes to the Territorial-style retreat — including enfilade alignment, classical molding, and reclaimed bathtubs and light fixtures — to create a singularly stylish home. The overall palette is minimal, cool, calming, and naturally elegant.
The main residence is constructed of adobe and features sturdy, thick interior walls and soaring ceilings, doors, and windows that admit lovely sunlight and views. Featured are two bedrooms, each with a fireplace, private bath, and patio access; one of the bedrooms could easily serve as a spacious office or study. At the heart of the home is a stylish, airy living room and a welcoming kitchen, both designed to take maximum advantage of their southern exposure and glorious natural light. In a separate building of frame construction, very private and sunny guest quarters are nestled above the roomy two-car garage. The bedroom enjoys a view of Sun and Moon mountains and the enveloping acreage.
Hidden behind privacy gates in the historic Cerro Gordo area, the half-acre estate is surrounded by mature trees, lush lawns, and perennial gardens maintained by a well. Abundant greenery and color — from cosmos, irises, roses, and hollyhocks — combine with a serene, secluded location to create the feeling of a quiet country estate just moments from downtown.
