About 228 Lamb Street

Step back in time to a Legacy Adobe Ranching Estate in the heart of Historic Santa Cruz. The uniqueness of which can never be replicated! It's the perfect location almost smack dab in the middle between Los Alamos & Santa Fe. Set back off the road with a huge drive-in entrance, the enclosed 3 residence property is on a tad over a half acre & consists of a 1,643 sq. ft. main house; a 411 sq. ft. mother-in-law/studio; & a separate, state of the art, 1,163 sq. ft. guest house. The 1-2 bedroom main house is pure Old World New Mexican charm with Vigas, original wood floors, old fashioned wood burning oven & conventional oven, nichos, claw foot tub & a laundry /mud room that connects to the back portal with fireplace & gardens. The mother-in-law/studio is connected to the main house by a shared portal & pergola in the front courtyard with a Kiva fireplace. There is a full kitchen, 3/4 bath, tile floors, Vigas & a new mini split. Originally the tractor barn and dispensa, the newly remodeled 1,163 sq. ft. guest house has brick floors & boasts an open kitchen/living floor plan featuring a Smeg refrigerator, a 48” Zline, 6 burner, 2 oven stove with griddle, a Bosch dishwasher, Miele washer/dryer & a gas burning wood stove. The bedroom is located in the oldest part & opens onto a private patio courtyard with Horno & fountain. A remodeled bathroom has a free standing antique claw foot tub & Kiva fireplace. The newly constructed atrium entrance incorporates river rock walls, built-in shelving & antique ceiling tins from Las Vegas, NM. There are fruit trees, established gardens, oversized she-shed/storage barn, outhouse, carport & Ramada. It's an entertainers delight & the perfect gateway for all the best Northern NM has to offer within close proximity to fabulous hiking on the La Puebla trails. There's also a vacant lot in the back (on Lamb) which could be utilized for RV/Boat parklng, animals, gardening & an ADU with county approval. Kick back & enjoy "The Simple Life!"
