Santa Fe Home Blends Styles For A Certain Southwest Sophistication

Pueblo, Spanish and contemporary styles combine to achieve a cohesive blend at this flat-roofed home in Santa Fe, New Mexico.

Built in 1963 and set on a roomy 2.35 acres, the two-story house has been newly outfitted with luxury, entertaining and multi-generational living in mind.

Mature trees and a curving driveway soften the stucco façade at the approach to the house. A landscaping lined brick walkway and steps gently rise to the double eight-pane wooden front door.

Wood and terracotta tile floors, multiple fireplaces and wood-beam ceilings are among the interior details.

The living room opens to a deck that takes in green belt, hillside and treetop views. Walls of glass bring light into the dining room, which opens to a walled al fresco dining space with a fireplace.


The center island kitchen features granite countertops, a double oven, a wine cooler and stainless steel appliances. A breakfast area sits to one side.

Vaulted beamed ceilings carry into the primary suite, which has a walk-in closet, dual sinks and opens to walled patio space.

The light-filled lower level has a living area, a second kitchen with a wine refrigerator, two guest bedrooms and a bathroom. There are a total of four bedrooms and four bathrooms within the house’s nearly 6,000 square feet of living space.

Recent improvements include the landscaped irrigation system, timed walkway lights and new windows. The home has a heated three-car garage.
