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.

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.
