Location: Santa Fe, New Mexico
This gorgeously restored and updated pueblo-style home in the Historic Eastside of Santa Fe, New Mexico, is a winner of the city’s Heritage Preservation Award. Although the year of completion isn’t listed, the 3,833-square-foot residence features plenty of historic details like thick adobe walls with hand-troweled plaster, viga ceilings, exposed beams, kiva fireplaces, and antique doors, to name a few.
These architectural elements combine with contemporary amenities to create a home that feels wholly modern. A sweeping floorplan with great flow includes spacious formal living areas, beginning with a grand foyer with corner fireplace, a step-down dining room, and living room with a large fireplace and French doors opening onto a patio. A sweet kitchen boasts antique doors as well as a cozy breakfast nook.
As for the bedrooms, a huge master suite with kiva fireplace, viga ceilings, and large bathroom is located on the first floor, while a guest bedroom, and another room currently being used as an office (also with a fireplace), are found upstairs. There is a total of four bathrooms.
Outside, the grounds are just as delightful and are characterized by a stone patio, two fire pits, rock walls, a rock fountain, and plenty of mature trees and vegetation. There’s even a guest house, which features a fireplace, small kitchen, and bathroom. Located in a cul-de-sac at 116 Calle La Pena, the property is offered at $2.7 million. Have a look.
