Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico
This enchanting Pueblo Revival adobe home perches on the Upper Sante Fe River Canyon with views of the acequia (watercourse), surrounding verdant bosque, and nearby Picacho Peak. Designed with architectural elements authentic to the area like antique doors, stately viga ceilings, brick floors, and rustic door and window lintels, the 1,787-square-foot three-bedroom creates a unique but cozy environment that is enhanced by its vibrant use of color.
The high-ceilinged open-plan great room boasts a corner fireplace that divides it from the dining room, and French doors that open onto the entry courtyard. Its dusty blue wall complements the yellow tiled kitchen adjacent to it, while rich salmon tones brighten up the bedrooms. The three bathrooms also combine traditional tiling with antique copper fixtures, built in shelving, and painted walls. The master bedroom provides direct access to the deck and is warmed by a raised fireplace covered by an ornate screen. Located at 1674 Cerro Gordo Road, it’s asking $535,000.
