Consisting of a 1,944-square-foot residence and an 800-square-foot studio, this rare northern New Mexico–style passive solar charmer of straw-bale construction enjoys a desirable location in the Art Barns, southeast of downtown Santa Fe. Vaulted ceilings, earthen and concrete floors, and spectacular views are its hallmarks. The inviting open floor plan features a delightful, well-appointed kitchen along with a living and dining area with built-in banco seating. The primary suite includes a fully updated bath with a soaking tub, dual sinks, a spacious shower, and travertine floors. The attic space is floored and runs almost the entire length of the house. A mini split provides air conditioning and heating, which is augmented by a charming woodstove. The studio features a sink, large double doors on each side, 220 wiring, and an additional entrance from the carport. The fully fenced backyard boasts low-maintenance landscaping and three apple trees. The buildings have no steps or carpeting, and low VOC paint has been used throughout.
