Knowing Santa Fe - Van Camp/Rigatti
Enveloped by trees in a private 2.6-acre setting just minutes from the Plaza and Tesuque, this four-bedroom, 4,312-square-foot hideaway offers the perfect blend of solitude and convenience. The main level's fluid floor plan is ideal for easy day-to-day living and festive entertaining. The living room and a relaxed media room are linked by a two-sided fireplace; tall windows and glass doors admit floods of light and give way to the rear portal. Steps away are the formal dining room and a kitchen with a fireplace, an island, Viking appliances, and counter seating. Two bedrooms and baths, abundant closets, and a den or office with built-in bookshelves are secluded down a quiet hallway. French doors in the den access a spacious, versatile studio or guest suite with a kitchenette, a bath, and a private entrance. At the top of a short flight of carpeted steps is the owner's suite, which occupies the home's entire upper level. The large, light-filled bedroom has windows on three sides affording sweeping views, and the generous bath features two separate vanity areas--each with access to a walk-in closet--that are joined by a unique walk-through shower with glass doors. A cool, breezy L-shaped portal offers space for alfresco dining and lounging, including a built-in cushioned banco. Stepping stones and flagstone paths weave through the grounds, which enjoy a view of mountains and sunsets through the trees. A paved driveway leads to a freestanding two-car garage and guest parking.
