'Livable art' describes this elegant 4300 sq. ft., (3 bedroom/3 bath plus office) home with a magical collaboration between artist Lisa T. Bemis, architect Beverly Spears and builder Tony Ivey and winner of the AIA 1994 Residential Design Merit Award. This enchanting property, which is sited on 1.26 acres and minutes from Museum Hill/Canyon Rd, has a bucolic feel and views of the Jemez mountain range from the backyard and additional Sun/Moon Mountain views from the front portal. Built in 1992 and constructed of pumice crete, the walls are thick and the divided light windows are framed by that depth. The ceilings were hand-painted by Bemis...plank by plank and add to the exceptional creativity of this elegant home. The master bedroom is located on the second floor with a private balcony and Jemez views and Bemis hand-painted the bathroom windows to create the illusion of delicate lace curtains. The office is attached with a private entrance, but is very separate from the main living areas; thus, a perfect home office. The detached 2-car garage is connected to the house with a lovely, long portal. This home is superlative in its design, in its location for privacy yet with easy downtown accessibility, and its access to the trail system (directly across the street from the Sun Mountain trailhead).
