This historic adobe home located in the heart of town yet nestled in its own oasis of towering elms offers an exquisitely artistic, warm, soulful, human-scaled refuge from the cold, hard world of granite, stainless steel, and institutionally sized rooms and appliances. With walls over two feet thick, it stands ready to enfold you in luxurious simplicity, quietude, and healthy materials directly from Nature: earth and wood.
“This Historical Pueblo revival home was lovingly restored to its original grandeur. It would be a perfect place to live in the upstairs amongst the trees and sky, and conduct business in the downstairs studio with direct access to the peaceful sculpture garden”, says Associate Broker Sharon Brown.
It is not just beautiful, it is also practical. The adobe works just as it should: cool in summer, warm in winter. Based on energy bills, this house outperforms, foot for foot, many LEED-certified homes. “And as a bonus you can earn extra income with the darling casita which has its own private entrance and yard,” believes Brown, “All this right downtown! In the desirable South capital District”. It is also practical in the ways it can be used: one large home, two large apartments on two different floors, or two apartments and an art studio or home office.
The top floor has an outdoor deck for summer dining under the canopy of trees. Its “gran sala” has a kiva fireplace and hand-carved beams and corbels. There are vigas and oak floors throughout. Outside, two separate sculpture gardens are hidden behind tall adobe yard walls and there is ample private parking, unusual for such a central location.
