Private Homes house description
This newly built custom house combines green building (Timber Frame with an Eco-nest format using straw/clay walls) and Vaastu Architecture (a 10,000 year old Vedic system from Southern India that emphasizes vibrancy and well-being. During construction, using specific numbers, everything was measured to 1/32' in order to create a resonance to support the inhabitants of the house. But even without knowing the care involved in window and door placement; the precise location of the well, the cisterns and the sewer; the direction of the electrical and interior water systems; the orientation of the house and the other buildings; and the room placement; one can appreciate the wonderful ambiance of this house. Located on 16 acres with a hiking and biking trail outside the front door, the acoustics are magnificent. The very large well-stocked kitchen has been used for cooking classes and can accommodate many cooks. The dining room has breathtaking views of both sunrise and sunset. Access to town is easy by both bicycle and car. There are two bedrooms with queen beds, beautiful views, and bathrooms located nearby. The Master Bedroom has a Dry Sauna in addition to a tub/shower. The den has a comfortable sleeper sofa as well as Dish access. There is also a small meditation room, and the large central area which is free and clear can be transformed into what activity is needed. All bedding has been recently upgraded. WiFi is wireless and available anywhere in the house.

The photos don't do the beauty of this place justice
This is one of my favorite places to stay- a haven in the quiet of sagebrush desert with a view of the mountains, yet minutes from downtown Santa Fe. The house is so comfortable, and the kitchen and dining area are large enough for several cooks and guests, and intimate enough for a romantic evening.

About the owner: I built this house so that people could experience a Vaastu house that was constructed as perfectly as possible according to this ancient system of building. There is an article about it in the Feb/March Issue of the Santa Fean that can be accessed. There are also pictures of me in my studio. I have been a Fiber Artist for many years and have enjoyed making large Art Quilts for the Wall.
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes:
This Property combines a unique landscape as well as a very pleasing and modern living space. It offers an ease to spend time in Santa Fe as well as entertain friends and fellow travelers. It is an ideal workshop space as well as a beautiful way to experience an ancient system of building that has been carried out with rigorous attention to detail. This property offers something unlike anything else one would find in Santa Fe.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The land that I found on which to build this house is so extraordinary that anyone visiting for the first time is usually taken aback. Because of the precise orientation on the land, the house itself looks like it is timeless. Paula Baker-LaPorte did a fabulous job of designing the house in which the 'magnificence of the mathematics' shine. It needs to be experienced to be understood. The clear-story keeps everything cool in the summer, and the passive solar along with the wood-stove and radiant floor hear, keep everything warm in the winer.
