Tim Van Camp, Knowing Santa Fe
In a coveted neighborhood just five minutes north of the historic Plaza--near the famed Santa Fe Opera and the prestigious thoroughfares of Circle Drive and Tano Road--this elegantly appointed estate includes a 5,197-square-foot residence and an 800-square-foot casita connected via a brick-paved breezeway. Filled with classical Santa Fe style, a respect for tradition, an attention to luxury, vibrant Southwestern hues, regionally fitting materials and finishes, and thoughtfully chosen contemporary conveniences, the home offers a grand central living, dining, and entertaining space with wonderful light and an inimitable view; an astutely outfitted kitchen with an accompanying breakfast area; multiple fireplaces--including a striking specimen built of stone located in the study--an office; and three bedroom suites secluded in owner's and guest wings. The serene owner's suite boasts a sitting area with a kiva fireplace, doors to a fountain courtyard, and a lavish bath. The casita's two bedrooms share a generous spa-like bath, and each has its own fireplaces and access to the outdoors. A courtyard, portales, and 2.57 acres of idyllic grounds allow for effortless enjoyment of the seclusion and singular style of this refined Southwestern retreat. The property also provides both covered and open parking.
