Alan & Anne Vorenberg
This elegant, refined home is private and serene, in one of the most treasured parts of the Santa Fe Eastside, at a vantage point only two blocks from Canyon Road. Part of the former Alexander Girard compound that housed his vast folk art collection, there are only 4 homes in this walled and verdant sanctuary. Enjoy the splendid Provenal style garden planted by Susan Girard which was a social center of Santa Fe when the Girards hosted friends like Georgia O' Keeffe. A promenade along the garden takes you home which you enter from the deep, covered 560 sq ft wooden deck. Add'l patio areas add to the abundant indoor and outdoor spaces for entertaining or quiet tranquility with lovely views of the lush gardens, Christo Rey Church and the Sangre de Cristo mountains. The beautiful skylit great room is open concept, with high ceilings, massive vigas, and a bank of tall windows and glass doors to bring in light. Girard design features blend seamlessly with sophisticated Santa Fe style: blonde wood floors, a corner kiva fireplace flanked by bancos and well-considered wall space for your art collection. The primary bedroom with luxurious bath is over 550 sq ft offering many interior design choices. The warm and inviting chef's kitchen with inspiring views has a coved cooking area, Viking range, Subzero fridge, burgundy concrete floors and a wonderful spot for breakfast. More: generous laundry room, great closet and storage spaces, refrigerated air, and a detached garage.
