The Santa Fe Trail was a well-traveled stage coach route connecting Missouri and New Mexico during the 19th century. Freight, mail and people made their way across the wilds of five states using the corridor.
This compound in Santa Fe’s Historic Eastside sits off that route, today known as the Historic Old Santa Fe Trail. The New Mexico property consists of two separately deeded condominiums configured as a family compound.
Gardens with a fountain, wisteria and mature trees connect the dwellings – a primary residence, a guesthouse and an office and studio.
In keeping with the area’s historic past, the compound pairs Territorial Revival architectural elements with contemporary design. The hybrid Territorial style, drawn from indigenous peoples, Colonial Spanish settlers and pioneers, is found primarily in New Mexico. Coffered ceilings and natural clay plastered walls are among the details found throughout the residence.
The open-concept living and dining room in the four-bedroom main house centers on a fireplace with a natural stone hearth. Thick ceiling beams and low wood wainscoting add a warm ambiance. A wall of doors opens to the shared courtyard garden. Transom windows bring in additional natural light.
The kitchen features black granite counters, marble accents and a butcher block-topped center island with a sink, bar seating and prep space. It opens to an informal dining area that takes in mountain views through a wall of windows.
The primary suite has a private wraparound deck and indoor and outdoor fireplaces. A skylight sits about the soaking tub in the two-vanity primary bathroom.
The one-bedroom, 1.5-bathroom guesthouse has a kitchen as well as living space and could be rented out as an income property.
There are a total of six bedrooms and six bathrooms within the 4,769 square feet of interiors. The property was built in 2008 and includes a two-plus car garage.
