This 1924 John Gaw Meem adobe house has all the classical elements that we have come to love and admire: location, mountain views, privacy, an interior balance of charm and function, with a quintessential Meem portal & gardenscape retreat on its West flank. Two later built guest houses (or studios) are attached on the South side and offer great flexibility of use and need. The 3200 sq. ft. Main House has three bedrooms and three baths and the two guesthouses are presently set up as 1/1 units with kitchenettes and living rooms.

On top a gentle hill with spectacular sunrise and sunset views, this soft contemporary home, with its warm exterior stucco and landscaping blends beautifully with its natural environment. Once inside, quality and custom design are evident throughout – from a beautifully arcing central gallery specifically designed for art display, to earth toned American Clay wall finishes, the play of natural light from strategically placed skylights, upscale hardware and doors, granite counters, and extensive custom alder cabinetry. Views are artfully captured via carefully placed windows, deep portals, and a delightful breakfast patio.
