Tim Van Camp, Knowing Santa Fe
In a coveted Eastside location, nestled in the foothills near St. John’s and the Atalaya trailhead, this delightful 5,000-square-foot home is brimming with modern Santa Fe style. Throughout, stone and wood floors, vigas and beams, and kiva fireplaces contribute to the singular charm of a Santa Fe home. Numerous outdoor living spaces and an alluring swimming pool and spa make it a relaxing, rejuvenating retreat.
The cooling greenery of mature pine, juniper, and piñon trees and established colorful landscaping surround the home, creating an oasis of peaceful privacy. A collection of perfectly placed portales and patios offer spots for dining, reading, entertaining, or simply lounging after a swim, reveling in Santa Fe’s skies, impossibly blue by day and sparkling at night. The well-chosen site on the one-acre property affords a view of the mountaintops over the trees.
Living and entertaining are easy thanks to an inviting living room with built-in bookshelves, a kiva fireplace, and double glass doors to a terrace; a spacious kitchen outfitted with top-tier appliances and a built-in breakfast banco; a family room with a wet bar; and a dining or sitting room with a kiva fireplace. The owner’s suite features a kiva fireplace, generous walk-in closet, and bath with a shower and tub. Two studies or libraries provide versatility and flexibility. The property also includes a two-car garage.
