About This Home
This spacious home is ideal whether you’re raising a family or creating your own artist retreat. With 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and a charming den/writer’s study with a kiva fireplace, it combines privacy with proximity. Set on a quiet cul-de-sac just a mile from the much-desired first entrance to Eldorado, it is nestled on 2.34-acres amid pinon and juniper woodlands. Perfect for entertaining, the comfortable great room offers panoramic wilderness and sunset views through the centerpiece picture windows. The woodstove is accented by an exposed adobe trombe wall, adding warmth and ambience. The open concept kitchen is bathed in natural light from its clerestory windows, has counters for prepping and a large island for serving. Wood ceilings and built-in bookshelves can be found throughout the home, including an oversized kitchen pantry. Two of the bathroom showers are Mexican-tiled, and newer laminate floors and carpets are in all the bedrooms and den. High ceilings and 11 skylights throughout brighten the house and contribute to the efficiency of its passive solar energy features. The two-car garage provides ample storage for vehicles and recreational equipment and includes flex space for an additional craft room or art studio complete with windows and a skylight. This home has been much-loved and well-maintained by the same family for the past 18 years, including new stucco, garage door, and concrete driveway in 2020. It is a short walk from the community center, pool, tennis courts, and dog park, and close to shopping, schools, and dining. Close-in, the home has easy access to Interstate 25, to cultural events in Santa Fe, and year-round recreational hiking, fishing, skiing, and biking.
