Refined and timeless, this stately residence in the Historic East Side is a testament to Santa Fe style. Sited on Garcia Street in a gated half-acre of manicured & terraced grounds, the adobe brick construction feels both substantial and inviting. Over 3000 square feet in a split floor plan offer numerous spaces for entertaining, conversation, and quiet contemplation alike. A winding brick path greets you and leads to the front entry, where architectural details abound. Built-in bookcases, nichos, bancos, rough-hewn vigas, split latillas in a herringbone design, cozy fireplaces, and pushed tin encased skylights are but a few. Walking past the entry hall, sunlight pours in from the conservatory windows, the deep adobe sills absorbing the warmth and embracing your delicate blooms. The open flow winds into a formal sitting room, centered by a wood-burning fireplace. French doors open onto the rear portal and allow the song of birds to fill the air. The formal dining room and adjacent kitchen space share a double-sided fireplace, feature coved ceilings, large windows, and vintage candelabra. The kitchen is a showcase of craftsmanship, the Talavera tile complementing ornate pushed tin custom cabinetry in floor to ceiling configurations to maximize storage space. Stainless steel appliances and solid countertops provide ample workspace for the home chef. From here, one has direct access to the laundry, pantry, mechanical closet, and oversized 2-car garage. The main level includes an expansive owner’s suite with a corner kiva fireplace and attached bathroom with walk-in closet. Providing more room for a casual gathering, an entrancing book, and view of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, the upstairs area houses the library, guest room, office/3rd bedroom, and separate bath. This bonus space opens onto a private balcony. Defying comparison, this singular home presents the discerning buyer an opportunity to fall under the spell of the Land of Enchantment.
