Knowing Santa Fe - Van Camp/Rigatti
Tucked in the foothills down a private branch of prestigious Brownell Howland Road, this impressively expansive four-bedroom estate is a unique hideaway offering a rare combination of vintage Santa Fe style, meticulous detailing, welcoming warmth, and modern conveniences. A grand living room, formal and casual dining spaces, a charming cook's kitchen, a handsome library or media room, and peaceful private quarters feature eye-catching carved and painted ceiling beams, vigas, posts, and corbels; other ornamental woodwork; latillas; deep archways; brick, tile, and hardwood floors; nichos; bancos; and distinctive ironwork in intricate Southwestern-themed patterns. A sunny office or in-law suite with a wet bar, fireplace, and bath enjoys the privacy of its own wing. The owner's suite is a quiet aerie perched above a sunny atrium where plants and an in-ground tree flourish; it includes a spacious carpeted bedroom with mountain views, a balcony, a multi-bay walk-in closet, and a spa-like bath with a roomy shower, a soaking tub, a cedar closet, and two separate vanities. Separating the main residence from a wonderfully generous attached guesthouse with its own garage is a voluminous party room with a bath, a kitchen area, and doors to a portal and courtyard patio. The guest quarters are filled with glorious light and views from multiple oversized windows. Quiet and secluded, the gated acreage features a garden, outdoor living and dining spaces, mature trees, and sweeping views.
