Property description


If you are looking for a quintessential Santa Fe Adobe with all the amenities possible within the heart of Santa Fe's Historic East side,
this may be for you. It is situated just 1/2 block off Camino del Monte Sol. This street was the home of some of the original artists
of the Santa Fe Art Colony.(Will Shuster, Fremont Ellis, Joesf Bakos,etc) Just walk 3 blocks down Camino del Monte Sol and you will be at Canyon Rd. where you can eat at El Farol or Geronimo Restaurants or shop at over 75 Art Galleries. Walk 4 blocks up Camino del Monte Sol and you will be at Museum Hill. (Folk Art Museum, Museum of Spanish Colonial Art, Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, Wheelwright Museum of the American Indian ). The entrance to the Walking Trails in the Santa Fe wilderness is about one mile. Acequia Madre Elementary school is 5 blocks away. Santa Fe Prep school is also about 4 blocks away.


If the location looks good to you, then I also think you will love our house. I was a Designer /Builder in Santa Fe for 40 years and my wife was an Art/ Indian/ trader/dealer for 30 years with a Gallery on Canyon Rd. This house reflects all of our years of collecting and designing/building houses. The house is 100 % adobe handcrafted (5,800 sq ft of heated space and 1,200 sq ft of Portals and BBQ area.) There are vigas in all rooms, 5 fireplaces, flagstone floors, hand carved doors, white hard plastered and natural clay colored plastered walls. All the door hardware is hand forged, all cabinets are hand made. The house has a very traditional look ( Pueblo Revival). There are 40 plus skylights which light-up the interior.

There are three bedrooms: a master suite with king sized bed on one side of the house with a large walk-in closet, and large bath with sauna, Jacuzzi tub, two sinks all surrounded with Italian stone and tiles. The two other bedrooms are on the other side of the house. Each has a queen pillow-topped bed and each has a complete bathroom with Jacuzzi tubs, Italian tiles, onyx and marble sinks with stone counter tops.

There are two Media Centers. The major family Media center has a library and 60' wide Samsung TV, DVD, VCR, Blue Ray. It is located between the Living room, Dining Rm, Kitchen. The other media center is smaller with a 42' flat screen TV, DVD, VCR and is connected to the two smaller bedrooms. It could be used as a playroom or a library/office. Both Centers have Internet/WIFI.
There is a large Kitchen with 4 ft wide 'SubZero', 'Thermador' cooktop/ grill, double ovens, Microwave/ Wine cooler/ 'Bosh' Dishwasher/ RO filtered water dispenser. There is semi-circular banco eating area. ( seats 6) at one end of the Kitchen. The Kitchen leads out into a long Portal and garden patio with and enclosed BBQ /kitchen for eating outside. This BBQ area has a' DSC' gas grill with rotisserie, copper sink , copper hood. The kitchen is beautifully appointed for gourmet cooking. Just off the kitchen is the Laundry/ Utility room and Pantry.

The Dining Room is formal with a small kiva fireplace. French doors open out onto grass patio. Dining room table seats 8 people. Old tin work lamps light up the room.

Living room is large (580 sq ft) with 11 ft high ceilings with large vigas, a grand Rumsferd fireplace and custom semi-circular sofa that faces the fireplace. There is also a bar with sink and bar top in one corner of the living room.There are large french doors that lead out to another grass /garden patio.


All the house has wireless Internet access, there are 9 portable phones, most light switches are on dimmers, TV is available in both media centers and the Master bedroom, there is a 'SuperCool' swamp cooler system through out the house. The Alarm system is monitored locally. The heating system is the state of the art with 'Viesman' Boiler and under the floor hydronic heating system. This is a very efficient hot water system.


The property has an adobe wall all around the street side and the rest of the property is fenced . There are 5 parking spaces available, no garage.
The patios have grass areas and mature landscaping and trees. Old growth Cottonwoods and mature fruit trees give the gardens shade and a lush feeling. Within the patios and courtyards there is an interior area that is fenced off from the rest of the gardens that can be used as a secure dog area. The neighborhood and street are very quiet.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1968

About the owner: We have lived in this house for many years and raised our children there. My wife owned and ran an art gallery on Canyon Rd and I was a designer/ builder of adobe homes. My wife is a native of New Mexico and I have live in Santa Fe for over 40 years. We both have a long history in Santa Fe and we love our house very much. We hope we will find others who will enjoy our house as much as we do.

Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Eastside:
This house has been our family home. It has been in the family for about 40 years. We finished a complete remodel just 4 years ago. It is perfectly centered for our lifestyle: close to Canyon Rd where my wife worked and close to schools. It also is truly the heart of old Santa Fe. There is a lot of history centered around this particular part of Santa Fe. We love to walk around the East side streets and see all the beautiful adobes and the gardens.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our family has enjoyed our house for many years. We love to sit in the living room with a big fire and just talk and read books--the couch is deep enough to fall asleep on..... The kitchen banco seating area is another favorite area to sit and watch my wife prepare food for our family. Then there is our favorite seating area after dinner which is to curl up on the media room sofa and watch on the big screen either a movie or some TV. In the Spring, Summer and Fall , we love to sit outside under the portal and listen to the water dripping in our garden fountain and enjoy at the roses and fruit trees.
