Sante Fe, New Mexico, is packed with intriguing and fun adobe architecture. It’s not as common, however, to see a contemporary desert home in the region. In this four-bedroom, four-and-a-half bath home built in 2016 within the gated community of Las Campanas, the architecture blends contemporary elements with a nod to classic Sante Fe style.
The 3,752-square-foot ranch looks right at home on a .82-acre lot thanks to its boxy lines, flat roof, and neutral-colored stucco. Inside, large exposed wooden beams are reminiscent of New Mexico’s vigas ceilings, rough-hewn beams used in traditional adobe architecture.
But an open concept, tiled floors, and expansive windows create a light and airy feel not often found in adobe homes. Walls of glass in the living room take advantage of views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, and a covered portal outside is meant for entertaining.
The kitchen features custom wood cabinetry, composite counter tops, a generous island, and access to a side patio. Other perks include a pergola, media room, and an indoor-outdoor gas fireplace. Love what you see? 16 Via Pampa is on the market now for $1,375,000.
