Entering through antique doors into the welcoming Zaguan, this traditional Territorial 3,783 sq. ft. home + 729 sq. ft. guest house on 3 acres is located in the beloved Vista Encantada neighborhood minutes from the Plaza. With a southern orientation around a central courtyard enjoying a cantera stone fountain, perennial gardens and views to the Ortiz and Sandia Mountains, the home was built in 1972/1973 by Stanke-Brown for the head planning engineer for Shell Oil with all of the true classic Santa Fe details: coved ceilings, split cedar latillas and vigas, kiva fireplaces, brick and wood floors and hand made walnut kitchen cabinets, this home is an oasis of clam, quiet and peace. The main house has a nice open feeling between the formal living, dining, sunroom, study and kitchen and the large master suite with corner kiva opens to a delightful garden room with a wood burning stove in which to enjoy morning light and coffee. Guest casita affords privacy and has its own kitchen, kiva and views. Gated and with a two-car garage, this light, bright home is classic Santa Fe magic.
