Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico

Price: $895,000

A rare example of a historic recreation gone right, this home in Santa Fe, New Mexico, was designed in the Territorial style, which combined Greek Revival and Gothic details with traditional pueblo architecture, that emerged between 1846 and 1912.

Built in the early 1990s with reclaimed materials from the Village of Mora, the 2,165-square-foot L-shaped residence features period elements that come together in a surprisingly authentic way.

That may be thanks to Ward Alan Minge, one of New Mexico’s preeminent scholars of Spanish Colonial, Mexican, Territorial, and Pueblo history, whom the listing notes designed the single-level house.

Featuring two bedrooms, two baths, and ample living spaces like the great room and large kitchen, the spacious interiors are characterized by rough-hewn wide-plank floors, viga and latilla ceilings, smooth plastered walls, and four kiva fireplaces. Other elements include deep wood-framed windows as well as chamfered square columns and a wraparound porch on the exterior.

Ideal for entertaining or retreating into a cozy, historically minded work of architecture, the property—located at 885 East Palace Avenue—is offered at $895,000.
