Ray Rush & Tim Van Camp
In the hills north of downtown Santa Fe, this 4,790-square-foot residence combines elegant Southwestern style with inviting spaces and majestic views. The generous, versatile floor plan includes a multitude of options for magnificent indoor-outdoor living and entertaining, a well-appointed kitchen, two bedroom wings—a master suite and office secluded in one and two guest bedrooms and a study in the other—and an oversized three-car garage. Rich wood and stone contribute to a natural warmth, and nearly every space is suffused with light from windows and skylights. Closet and storage space is plentiful. A colorful courtyard is a peaceful oasis filled with trees and flowering plants, while a series of patios and portales running along the western side of the home and guesthouse allow for outdoor living and entertaining or appreciating breathtaking vistas. The private guesthouse has its own portal, living and kitchen spaces, a quiet bedroom, and easy access to a patio perfect for a hot tub.
