This truly unique, inviting adobe home is nestled into the hillside on the largest lot in the desireable Alma Compound. Overlooking downtown Santa Fe and near the Cross of the Martyrs, this property is adjacent to Fort Marcy – assuring the home keeps its stunning views and exquisite privacy. Adding to this Shangri-la is a small, delightful orchard with apple, pear, and cherry trees. It's not uncommon for deer to come down from Fort Marcy, to partake of the goodies and greet the homeowners!
The outstanding design and attention-to-detail by builder Ron Smith, creates gracious, open spaces, sensuous soft curves, varied textures, raised ceilings, and a wonderful, winding staircase.
Providing imposing city and mountain views, the entryway is spacious and welcoming and leads to the living room with its grand fireplace and to the dining room. The well-appointed kitchen is open to the communal areas and mountain views. A great portal outside the kitchen and dining room makes a convenient and lovely place to share a meal with family and friends. Also on this main level is a powder room and guest quarters with private entrance. This room is large and stunning with a stacked stone wall and fireplace, an efficiency kitchen, bathroom, and private portal. The versatility of this room is great. It would be ideal as a family room, office, or mother-in-law suite.
On the second level is a galleria with access to a deck and outstanding views, leading to two en suite bedrooms. The smaller room (which is still good- sized!), has a fireplace, small study and a deck. The light-filled master bedroom is enhanced with evaporative cooling, and has a covered portal with unobstructed views for miles. An office, bath- room with sunken tub, and huge master closets complete the suite.
The outdoor spaces here are perfect for enjoying our glorious weather and evenings. This property is truly an oasis in the middle of town. It is just three blocks from the Plaza, and one block off Artist Road, with access to 10,000 Waves and Ski Santa Fe. It just doesn’t get any better than this!
