CASA DE CUESTA ASOLEADA
John Gaw Meem’s Sunny Slope House
On over two acres with beautiful views, Casa de Cuesta Asoleada, The Sunny Slope House, is one of those rare opportunities to experience true authentic Pueblo Revival architecture that is fully updated to today’s place and time.

An automatic privacy gate invites you down a narrow lane in full view of Sun and Moon Mountain, and walking into the courtyard at Casa Cuesta de Asoleada is taking a step back in time to the Pueblo Revival period in Santa Fe. Surrounded by adobe walls (built from adobe bricks made on site) and covered portals, the courtyard takes full advantage of the southern exposure and the views of Sun and Moon Mountain.

The residence was originally designed and built for Mr. and Mrs. Edward Tatum in 1939 by John Gaw Meem, who is known regionally and nationally known as the father of the Pueblo Revival period in Santa Fe. In 2014 McDowell Fine Homes faithfully restored and sensitively updated the home. All the original plans, sketches, research, invoices and letters are available in conjunction with the purchase of this historic home. New roof, plumbing, electrical, heating appliances, tile, plaster, insulation and stucco are but a few of the updated features.

This home exudes true Santa Fe style in the traditional sense, from reproductions of the original tin fixtures to the original fireplace design discovered in the archives and built to match. The adobe walls are made from the mud bricks fashioned by hand on the property. All the doors have been reproduced by local craftsmen from the original Meem drawings, and the interior and exterior hardware was salvaged and restored.

The home has a comfortable and unassuming appeal while offering complete privacy on 2.8 acres that are two legal lots of record on Tatum Lane off Old Santa Fe Trail, just moments from the Plaza.

There are two bedroom suites, each containing a full bathroom, a fireplace, comfortable seating areas, and with access to their own private portals and patios. One of the suites also adjoins the attached office space with fireplace and television. The Master Suite has a walk-in closet and large walk-in wet room with tub, shower, and sink. The two and one half bathrooms are stylized to meet the original home but are fully updated.

The cozy yet functional kitchen opens to the dining area and living room, while natural light enters the home from multiple directions. There is a comfortable in-home office or den with a fireplace and access to a portal. Portals surround the home and open to indoor spaces.

The home has hot water cast iron baseboard heating and cooling by split-system fan coil units. A full Wi-Fi enabled audio/visual system including numerous in-wall speakers are included in the sale of the home. An on-site ground-mounted solar array delivers electricity to the home , which is also on-grid.

The courtyard offers a new outdoor full kitchen with a gas barbeque, a grill that uses wood or charcoal, a range and oven, refrigerator and dishwasher. In addition, the courtyard contains an antique millstone water fountain and a gas fire pit.

There is an oversized two car garage with a large storage room, storage shelving and garbage area.

Plans are available for a Guest Casita that can be added to the home, and a design is available for a second home on the adjoining lot.

If privacy, proximity to town, original Pueblo Revival provenance and style, and comfortable low profile are what you seek, then Casa Cuesta Asoleada may be the perfect oasis for you!
