Tim Van Camp, Knowing Santa Fe
Nestled at the base of a hill behind secure gates, this enchanting estate is near Canyon Road yet completely private and quiet. Subtle Santa Fe–style touches and a warm, welcoming openness contribute to the appeal. Among the many highlights are three bedroom suites—including a spacious second-floor master suite with a study, an opulent bath, and a deck—a sunny kitchen, and elegant but comfortable living, dining, and entertaining areas. A host of distinctive architectural details can be found throughout, such as kiva fireplaces, coved ceilings with vigas, decorative corbels, paver and hardwood floors, and colorful Talavera tilework. The residence is nestled amid trees, shrubs, and other vibrant flora, giving it a feeling of being embraced by the land. A sun-drenched patio, a charming kitchen portal, and a serene deck off the master suite encourage relaxed living and entertaining in gorgeous sunshine or beneath a starry sky.
