On the historic east side of Santa Fe’s Canyon Road is a magnificent home like no other. Astonishing and peerless, this compound was recently featured in Architectural Digest. A refurbished, gorgeous blend of Santa Fe style and European elegance with a four-bedroom main residence, a three-bedroom guest wing, a two-bedroom guest house, and a private master suite. A newly designed living room and formal dining room offer sophistication and intimate comfort. This luxury Santa Fe home is for sale through Marilyn Foss Real Estate, (505) 231-2500.
Outside are just under two acres of magnificent landscaping and patio/portal entertaining areas. A swimming pool and spa can be used year-round. A private well keeps grounds lush and green. Magnificent views of the sunsets, the river canyon and the Sangre de Cristos make life at 1243 Canyon Road a rare treat.
Canyon Road’s special quality arises from its history as a rural neighborhood of small farms scattered along an old Indian trail. The oldest adobe houses on Canyon Road date at least to the 1750s, built by early Spanish settlers. Each house was the center of a family farm on the fertile patches of land bordering the Santa Fe River. In those days it would not have been unusual to see a small flock of sheep being driven up the road on the way to green, mountain pastures deeper in the canyon.
Contemporary Canyon Road, and especially Upper Canyon Road where this compound resides, is just far enough away from the bustling, world-famous art galleries to afford a secluded, completely private lifestyle while still being a full part of the history of Santa Fe.
Luxurious amenities include a greenhouse overlooking the canyon; a year-round, outdoor pool with hot tub and spa; insulated windows; kiva and traditional fireplaces in many of the rooms, including the chef’s kitchen; mature landscaped, drip-system grounds with a koi pond and modern stone fountains; fully gated property with security system; vigas and hand-painted beams; three washer/dryer combinations; a wetbar; a wine cellar; a water purification system; and his and her full baths and walk-in closets off the elegant master bedroom.
