Private, park-like, hilltop estate situated on over 3.5 acres in the heart of the historic eastside, off Upper Canyon Road with glorious unobstructed views of the Sangre de Cristo and Jemez mountains, as well as Santa Fe city lights. Constructed in 1930 in classic Pueblo Revival style, the main residence features design elements unique to the era, including thick "battered" adobe walls, hand-hewn beams, corbels, vigas and latillas. Also significant are Territorial-style windows, handcrafted doors, vintage hand-forged hardware and original light fixtures, with numerous kiva fireplaces. The main house boasts a grand living room, spacious garden room, large media room/office, updated kitchen with adjoining butler's pantry, a gracious owner's suite, three additional bedrooms with flagstone and hardwood floors, and beautiful scenery from the windows. The property also offers a passive solar adobe guesthouse, the original stone garage with kiva fireplace, the original stone entertainment pavilion, walled patios, extensive portals, stone terraces and walls, a boxwood English garden and numerous fruit trees, including apple, pear and cherry. The current owners purchased the property 34+ years ago, and aided by local artisans, they have been loving stewards in the restoration and renovation of the property with thoughtful dedication to authenticity. This estate could possibly serve as a family compound or be subdivided.
