In the hills north of Santa Fe as they roll toward the Sangre de Cristos, this peaceful two-level adobe home is a tranquil 2,528-square-foot hideaway enveloped by mature flora on 1.33 acres. The work of architect Mark Chalom, known for solar designs that blend handcrafted traditional elements with sustainable technology, it is filled with timeless Santa Fe style, from plaster walls and handsome brick and hardwood floors to ceiling beams, vigas, and latillas. The heart of the home is a light-filled living room with a soaring ceiling, a wall of windows, and a warming stove. A striking carved post introduces the charming kitchen, which features an island, generous cabinet space, and a graceful archway leading to a circular eating area. Completing the main level are a third bedroom or office and a family room with a kiva fireplace and French doors to a sunny brick paved courtyard. On the lofty upper level, the serene primary bedroom is adjoined by an en suite bath with a spacious L-shaped vanity and two walk-in closets, while one upper-level guest bedroom is accompanied by a colorful bath with dual sinks, delightful Talavera-style tilework, and a step-in shower. Tucked behind the home is a flagstone patio enveloped by tall shady trees and gardens. The quiet location is ideal, just moments from all the attractions and conveniences of the historic Plaza.
