This truly singular estate is a rare, enviable opportunity on Santa Fe’s Eastside that will appeal to the most discerning and fastidious individuals. Encompassing approximately an acre not far from Canyon Road, the walled property is a lush, vibrant haven unlike any other found in Santa Fe.
Spanning more than 5,000 square feet, the artfully designed main residence has, in the hands of many loving owners, gracefully evolved from its 1930s origins as an adobe home to an expansive estate of warm, welcoming elegance. Although the styling recognizes and respects Santa Fe’s architectural vernacular, the home’s lines are more eclectically classical or modern than strictly Pueblo or Territorial. Highlights include an elegant formal living room; a comfortable den; a welcoming country-style kitchen; and two generous master bedrooms, both with decks overlooking the property’s serene koi pond and waterfall. Thick adobe walls, kiva fireplaces, and vigas hint at the home’s heritage. The pièce de résistance, however, is the rear portal, which encompasses a bar, living and dining areas, and a hot tub. Above it all is an enviable roof deck with a singular panorama. A freestanding guesthouse comfortably accommodates visitors with charm and grace.
Enveloping the expansive main residence are enviable gardens of greenery, tall trees, and enchanting paths winding among native flora and alongside a pond and waterfall. A rolling meadowlike lawn cascades gently downhill, revealing a commanding vista of the unique landscape surrounding Santa Fe, including the striking Jemez Mountains in the west.
