Adrienne DeGuere & Vanessa Rios
This rare private compound located in Santa Fe's historic eastside, includes three residences - the 2 bedroom main house, the studio casita and the 1 bedroom main casita. This distinctive enclave features "La Gordita", the primary residence, built with traditional mud/straw walls and brick floors throughout the residence with the exception of the kitchen which has painted tile floors overhung with a uniquely crafted hammered tin ceiling. Other regional details are artfully expressed in carved ceiling beams and corbels looming dramatically over the central living area. Hand carved detailing is carried through to the front portal to which all the main living quarters either have direct access or are seen through large Territorial-style windows. The master suite has double walk-in closets and a luxurious bath with double vanities, soaking tub and separate glass enclosed shower. The studio casita embodies the spirt of La Gordita with woods floors, lighter-toned mud walls, kiva fireplace, skylights and a bath with a Mexican tin sink. The main casita has a more modern aesthetic with a contemporary styled kitchen designed with stainless steel countertops, a Bosch stove, and light wood cabinetry. The living room is generously proportioned with a large kiva fireplace, built in nichos, bancos, vigas and wood floors that flow into the master suite that is similarly embellished with southwestern motifs. All three residences open to a shared picturesque central courtyard.
