Knowing Santa Fe - Van Camp/Rigatti
On one of the finest lots in the delightful Sol y Lomas neighborhood, this unique 1970s home takes its inspiration from Spanish haciendas and enjoys truly enviable views of the Sangre de Cristos and their foothills. Designed and built by a contractor as his personal home, it has been lovingly maintained by the same family over the decades. It consists of a fluid enfilade of inviting, light-filled rooms with plentiful windows and skylights, all enveloping a wonderful courtyard of grass, flagstone, and aspens. In the western wing, the three peaceful carpeted bedrooms feature generous closets and are accompanied by two bright baths, while the living room, dining and family room, and cheerful kitchen and breakfast area have oversized windows admitting glorious light and views. Other highlights include striking period fireplaces, abundant kitchen storage, a spacious laundry and mud room, a two-car garage, and a detached art studio with walls of glass and useful storage and workspace.
