Located in a well-established Eastside neighborhood, this residence – originally built in the 1950s – underwent a Cinderella-like transformation in 2015. Magically, the exterior still maintains the distinctive architectural flavor of the past while the interior shines with beautiful modern appointments, colors, treatments and finishes. A handsome, covered front entry leads to an open-concept dining, living room and eat-in kitchen designed to create an easy flow between the central living space and the multiple outdoor rest and entertainment areas. Like the interior of this home, these outdoor “rooms” have been fashioned to express elegant and spacious living. The light and expansiveness of the New Mexico sky seen from the portals and garden patios, is echoed interiorly with high ceilings, multiple skylights, lightly finished floors, and a straightforward marble fireplace. A wall of windows and French doors look easily upon garden colorations to which the stone-gray walls, countertops, appliances and tatami-like sliding glass closet doors have been well coordinated. A master bedroom with ensuite bath and two additional guest bedrooms are an easy refrain to the core of the home exhibiting not only an economy of design, but a quiet sophistication.

Neil Lyon On Santa Fe Indian Market

Neil Lyon On Santa Fe Indian Market: Come For The Art, Stay For The Experience
July 16, 2018 by Neil Lyon
HauteResidence.com

As mid-summer approaches in Santa Fe, the excitement is tangible as the town prepares for the coming of Indian Market and the transformation of our historic downtown Plaza into a colorful and exciting outdoor market filled with over 1,000 exhibition tents and booths teeming with exquisite examples of Indian art. The more than 150,000 visitors to this annual celebration are treated to every conceivable form of Native art, from basketry to blankets, traditional and contemporary jewelry, paintings, pottery, beadwork, sculptures, drums, leather goods and more, as well as the rare opportunity to buy directly from, and to meet with the talented artists and to learn about their art and the traditional culture from which it sprang.

Every August since 1922, the Southwestern Association for Indian Arts (SWAIA) has produced what has grown to be the largest and most prestigious juried Native art show in the world, and the largest cultural event in the southwest.

SWAIA guarantees that each artist adheres to strict production and material guidelines in every creation. As a result, you help to support an artist and his or her community and at the same time know that the value and appreciation of your art purchases are protected.

With a continued focus on quality and authenticity from over 220 U.S. Federally recognized tribes and First Nations’ Tribes in Canada, it is not unusual to see many multi-generational artistic families exhibiting their work together as the elder artists pass on the market experience to their younger family members.

Other Indian Market events include an Awards Ceremony and Live Auction Gala, a Native American clothing contest, Native Cinema Showcase, and performances of indigenous music, dance, and storytelling.

A hat, umbrella, and sunscreen are essential for this unique weekend-long outdoor market and cultural celebration that could bring a combination of intense high-altitude sunshine and an occasional southern Rocky Mountain cloudburst.

The 2018 market dates are Saturday, August 18th, and Sunday, August 19th. Please visit the SWAIA website for information on all of the interesting market events offered which begin on Tuesday, August 14th.

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!
