This adobe home with three freestanding studios offers a private compound nestled in the foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains on five acres of mature pinon and ponderosa pines with easy access to downtown Santa Fe. The adobe main house updated in 2008 features casual elegance. Clerestory windows with tall angulated wooden planked beamed ceilings capture the famed Santa Fe light. An open living concept allows for easy flow from a cook's kitchen and adjacent living and dining area which opens on to a large outdoor patio for seasonal entertaining. Multiple fireplaces further enhance the cozy Northern New Mexico charm. Steps away are two extraordinary studios with large frontal south-facing portals. The sellers are renowned artists who built their two-story studios for workshops, classes and expansive painting spaces. The large studio is 2000 square feet with a soaring ceiling height of 16 feet and a wall of north-facing windows framing breathtaking mountain views; while a comfortable living and dining area - complete with a full kitchen and bath, as well as a private loft, provides the artist or guests with a secluded retreat. The second studio is 1000 square feet with similar windows and a sloped ceiling. A third studio-workshop with directional skylights presents another ample storage or work option. Here is the perfect opportunity for creating your professional creative space or family compound. A quintessentially Santa Fe property/lifestyle to be enjoyed.
As the Old Santa Fe Trail winds north, these lovely, heavily-forested communities run alongside. Located in the foothills of the Sangres, the lower elevations provide rolling hills of pinon and juniper with the high-elevation nestled in mountainous terrain. All have wonderful views of the Sandias and famous Santa Fe sunsets. Most lots start at 2.5 acres and some are over ten.
