Typically, green is not the first color that dominates a high desert palette but this location has plenty of it on all sides. On a private lane just off the juncture of E. Alameda and Canyon Road and shaded by trees fed by the waters of the nearby Santa Fe River, this property is a haven for quiet yet convenient living. At the end of a long driveway, this tucked-in, two-story house features tinted concrete floors, high ceilings with square cut beams and plank ceilings in the living/dining room area and coved and viga ceiling in the kitchen and den. Glass-windowed doors off the living area lead to a garden patio with terraced landscaping shaded by a canopy of mature cottonwoods. A skylight floods the staircase with natural light and illuminates the inlaid colored tiles on each step. Both upstairs bedrooms have slate floors, kiva fireplaces, square cut beamed ceilings alternating with herringbone plank ceilings, carved pillars and corbels, access to portals with garden views, cedar-lined walk-in closets and diamond plaster walls. A full bath and ¾ bath attend to the bedrooms, each designed in proportions to convey the luxury of a master suite. A very privately located guest casita is a mini-version of the main house with the same architectural details. A large outdoor area is protected by a coyote fence and parking is close and convenient. Canyon Road, the Plaza, a complex of trails connecting the hiker to the Audobon, Atalaya and the ski basin are nearby.
