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.
