Drive the soft, winding curves of Upper Canyon to the gated community of Shayakin. Nestled in the velvety foothills of the Sangre de Cristo mountains, this beautifully-crafted home with guesthouse enjoys inviting views and a feeling of serene removal. The three-bedroom, three-bath main house has an abundance of windows and a deep, front portal to take advantage of its striking setting. Cherished traditional elements, such as coved-plaster ceilings, vigas, brick floors and two kiva fireplaces give the interior a warm elegance. The African Kuba cloth paneled doors in the unique dressing room closet are a delight. The property includes a detached guesthouse, a successful rental, set apart for owner privacy. A rare offering, on one acre, minutes from downtown Santa Fe.
Santa Fe’s Northeast area, within city limits, while conveniently located, gives residents the pleasure of quiet living. On every tree-lined street are examples of newer, award-winning architecture and well-established, older adobes. In addition to the Santa Fe Plaza, this area extends east from St. Francis Drive and south of Alameda to the edge of the climb to the Sangre de Cristos.
