In the most private part of the gated Circle Drive Compound, this Kim Unger–built Pueblo Revival–style home has been impeccably maintained and cared for by its current owners and is perched on a hill with extraordinary views of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, the Tesuque Valley, and the Santa Fe Ski Basin. Beautiful finishes adorn every room—beeswaxed diamond-finish plaster walls, handsome travertine and slate floors, soaring coved ceilings, and antique Italian doors. Among the numerous noteworthy spaces are a gourmet kitchen with an AGA stove, granite countertops, and stainless-steel appliances; a luxurious private master suite with air conditioning; a custom sauna; two welcoming guest bedrooms; inviting portales; and an attached garage. The mature landscaped grounds include tranquil fountains.
The Northeast of Santa Fe, within city limits, combines the pleasures of quiet living with the conveniences of location. On every tree-lined street are examples of newer, award-winning architecture and well-established, older adobes. In addition to the famous Plaza, this area includes all the land reaching up to the Jemez and the Sandias.
