About the property

Beautifully appointed 2400 square foot luxury residence accommodating 4 people

Permit #: 18-00148533

Palace Gem is a thoughtfully and tastefully remodel of a 1920’s bungalow in the heart of Santa Fe’s Historic Eastside. An easy walk to Canyon Road and the Plaza.

The home opens to the light filled open-concept living/dining/kitchen with hardwood floors throughout. The living room is designed for comfortable entertaining or relaxing, and the dining room features access to an outdoor deck which allows for extended outdoor living and entertaining. The immaculate chef’s kitchen is tastefully appointed with high-end finishes and top-of-the-line Jenn-Air appliances. The master suite features a kiva fireplace, walk-in closet, private outdoor deck access, and a luxurious en-suite bathroom complete with dual sinks, a large soaking tub, and a walk-in shower. The guest bedroom features an en-suite bathroom with a large walk-in shower, and the same level of tasteful finishes found throughout the house. There is also a second guest bedroom that has two twin beds. A sweet reading area with built-in bookshelves is located at the entry to the third outdoor deck space. The home has air-conditioning throughout.

The outdoor spaces are landscaped with fruit trees and honeysuckles. There is off-street parking for three cars. The level of taste and detail in this full renovation was enough to earn the 2016 Heritage Preservation Award.

The home is located conveniently to the Plaza in the center of Santa Fe as well as to all the art galleries on Canyon Road. This is an exquisite home for your vacation in Santa Fe.

Exceptional Home

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home - highly recommended. Beautifully remodeled with all the amenities needed. Comfortable beds, fully equipped kitchen, multiple outdoor porches and excellent location - easy access to the Plaza and Canyon Road. Parking for three cars plus a garage. We've stayed in many places in Santa Fe but - as other reviewers have also noted - this is now our first choice.

We spent Christmas here as a get away and it was beyond expectations.

  • 5 of 5

The home is so clean one would think it were just built. It has every amenity one would want. We have stayed at several wonderful inns in Santa Fe before. But now we can never imagine staying anywhere but here. We hope to return sometime in the warm months so we can sit outside on the many porches. Our adult daughter and her dog came with us. We walked everywhere. The Plaza is only about .5 miles away. Canyon Road is about the same distance. Wonderful trip.

We loved this place!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for a week and absolutely loved it. The house has been completely renovated and is decorated beautifully. The master bedroom is very large with a fireplace and opens up to a back deck. The kitchen is lovely and fully equipped with latest appliances and all the accessories you’ll ever need for cooking. The best part was the location of the house. Just a 5-10 minute walk to the plaza and a 5-10 min walk to Canyon Road. Such a quiet area too. Couldn’t ask for more.. we highly recommend this place!

A True Gem

  • 5 of 5

This is truly an exceptional home. From top to bottom, everything in this house is impeccible.

The house retains its historic charm, but with the benefit of a remarkably tasteful and very high quality renovation. The beds are very comfortable, the kitchen has everything you could need, including stainless steel cookware, and the bathrooms are exquisite.

Perhaps most delightful - Richard and his partner Leslie could not have been more accomodating or accessible. They are here for anything you need.

In all - amazing location, amazing house, amazing hosts!

Wonderful home, great location, best in Santa Fe

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful surprise to find such a beautifully and tastefully redone home within walking distance to the Plaza. Upon arrival you will notice that there is parking for two or three vehicles, off the street. The home has been completely remodeled and is in outstanding shape. Two wonderful and large baths, bedrooms, beautiful kitchen with all you need for cooking. Front porch and three other outdoor decks surround the home to catch the morning or afternoon sun. Extremely clean and well kept, new appliances. Owner instructions were clear, concise, and timely. Quiet neighborhood, only a few blocks down from La Posada Hotel and Resort, walk to Canyon Road or the Plaza easily. All in all, there is nothing but excellent reviews for this home. In summary, after many stays in Santa Fe and in many different accommodations, this is now our favorite and our first choice.
