New Listing: 1150 Cristo Rey, Santa Fe, NM

Santa Fe adobe home for sale

In the extremely desirable east side of Santa Fe, New Mexico, on a small rise over Cristo Rey Street, sits this beautiful and authentic Santa Fe adobe home now listed for sale. It has all the Santa Fe touches – including 2 kiva fireplaces, nichos, and vigas painted the most amazing red you’ll ever see.

This home was originally built in 1945 according to county tax records. It’s likely there were a few additions along the way, and primarily owned by one family. The current owner has been in the home about 5-6 years and has taken great care of the home. Recent inspections were completed to ensure that the roof is in good shape, and all outside wood trim (including the canales) are freshly painted.

The lot itself is .25 acres and has room for a potential guest house. Also, there are plans for an addition of about 400 square feet plus a rooftop deck. Plans will be included with the purchase of the home. This home is zoned ‘historic contributing’ which means additional care needs to be taken when doing any sort of remodeling or additions. The architect who drew up these plans is well versed in working with the Santa Fe Historic board. These plans have NOT been submitted yet, and so will need to go through the full historic zoning process. In addition to that, simple sketch drawings are available which include a guest house of approximately 750 square feet.

The home itself has 2 bedrooms (one with a fireplace) and 1 bathroom. There is an additional large ‘utility’ room which contains the washer and dryer, a utility sink, and the hot water heater. This room is large enough to reconfigure into a separate use if desired.

The kitchen is modest but functional, and a dining room and small sitting room adjoin. The star of this home is the main living room, which has 2 fireplaces, one a traditional kiva and the other a brick fireplace, stunning wood floors, and those incredible red vigas.

There are several outside sitting areas, with large mature trees all around. The landscaping is simple, and so easy to care for. A carport sits at the top of the driveway, and an outside attached storage area sits next to the carport.

We will have a video tour soon so you can see for yourself, or stop by one of our open houses!

SantaFunky in La Cueva Canyon

Here’s a recent listing that came on the market that caught our eye – check out the photos and you can see why.

This home is located on 38 acres in La Cueva Canyon. La Cueva is located about 23 minutes to the northeast of Santa Fe, a quick drive on I25 to the Pecos exit gets you there. Head up into the mountains where you’ll find this extraordinary home/structure. Built in the early 80s originally, someone obviously had some great talent in putting this place together. The bottom half/walls are adobe, up to about 12 feet around. From there a wood frame coved ceiling was added on. The outside of the structure needs some work. Basically – an entire new ‘roof’ is required, and maybe some new windows, so there are some deferred maintenance items that need to be addressed.

But if you look closely through the photos you will notice that the inside is in very good shape, and there are lots of fun details.

Add to all that that the pure privacy of the land and surrounding area this property has tons of potential if you’re looking for a home in the mountains, a relaxing place to get away, or work.

The property has it’s own private well and septic system, and heat is provided from a propane tank.

Blue toilet ? check. Amazing floating staircase? check. 2 outbuildings for storage or chickens? check.

This property is listed with Susan Monroe and Terry Smith of Santa Fe Properties.

Siler Road Area – New Developments

The Siler Road area isn’t what you’d think would be the most exciting part of Santa Fe. Long an uninteresting industrial area supporting local businesses, warehouses, materials yards, and manufacturing facilities, the area is undergoing a renaissance in the past few years.

The first signs of hipness happened when Meow Wolf (with the help of George RR Martin) took a  look at the long abandoned Silva Lanes bowling alley (my kids are still sad it closed down) and decided it would be the perfect place to create their magical funhouse. After a year plus of renovation, they opened their new artspace which can only be described as indescribable. It was instantly a hit and outpaced initial visit estimates by an incredible amount and drew over 400,000 visitors in the first year. It has been listed nationally on many websites and travel blogs and their visit numbers are expected to continue to grow. Be sure to check out the new food truck – Trinity Kitchen – serving up Louisiana-style barbecue and other treats.

Second Street Brewery – a venerated Santa Fe brewpub with 2 locations – decided to purchase and renovate an old warehouse on Siler Road. Most of the square footage is devoted to the new brewing facility, something that will help them keep up with demand of their award winning ales and lagers. But the front third of the building will be the new taproom, which will also offer live music and a light menu.

Around the corner is another new brewpub serving up a different style of beer. Focusing mostly on sours and Belgian ales – Rowley’s Farmhouse is another cool place to check out. It’s not your typical pub, and not your typical pub food.
