This lovely compound with two homes is located in the historic Guadalupe District and offers a number of opportunities: live in one and rent the other, use it as a guest house for extended family or even as an office/studio. The main residence is double adobe and was originally constructed in the early 1900s by the renowned Hesch Brothers. Known for their exquisite woodworking and cabinetry skills, the bookcases, doors and window sashes here are exceptional. Over the last 10 years this home has been lovingly restored to its original beauty with wood and concrete molding in the ceiling, hard-sheened plaster walls, hardwood floors and stained glass windows. While restoring the extraordinary features of this historic home, the electrical, heating and plumbing systems were updated and a new roof was installed within the last three years.
A nice-sized yard with xeriscaping and mature trees includes a central brick walkway that leads to a white picket fence bordering a deep portal. The portal is perfect for gatherings and enjoying the spectacular Northern New Mexico weather. The front door is stunning and the nearby stained glass windows show off beautifully against the wood and greenery.
The living room is open to the formal dining area with lovely wood and glass cabinets in between. The kitchen is large and inviting with modern appliances and plenty of storage. The curved wall of the vestibule brings warmth to an informal dining area.
Nicely separated from the common rooms of the house are two bedrooms. The master bedroom has a nicely sized dressing room, closet and 3/4 bath. There is a full bath in between the master bedroom and the second bedroom.
The smaller adobe home is of traditional New Mexican architecture with a unique stone wall entrance. Hardwood floors throughout and good light make this a pleasant and inviting home. There are two bedrooms (one with kiva fireplace), a full bath, laundry room and kitchen. Making it even more wonderful is the landscaped garden with automatic irrigation system.
Within walking distance of the Farmers' Market, restaurants, galleries and Santa Fe Plaza these two classic homes are located within the historic community surrounding Our Lady of Guadalupe Santuario in the heart of Santa Fe.
