A historic home I just photographed 855 El Caminito, Santa Fe, New Mexico

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. Listing agent Andy Ault 505.670.7911, Keller Williams Santa Fe.






























A home I photographed in the western hills of Santa Fe, NM, 75 Bluestem Dr

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. The main home features a gracious living room perfect for entertaining as it opens onto a deep portal with kiva fireplace while a semi-formal dining room off the central gallery enjoys its own dining portal. The kitchen, designed for efficiency and ease, opens onto a cozy family/den area. Attached to the main home is a well-appointed 500 square foot guest house/suite.
