Adrienne DeGuere & Vanessa Rios
Shaped by the hands and lives of its storied residents, this Eastside compound of two, beautifully-crafted homes wraps a slice of Santa Fe history in a flexible package for modern needs. The two-bedroom, one bath front house, facingCanyon Road, is a mantle of serenity, with tall ceilings, oak floors and a sculptural kiva fireplace. Its updated kitchen, with corner kiva, adjoins a sun-drenched adobe dining room once used as a studio. Nestled between the front and back houses is a flagstone patio for alfresco dining and a spot of gardening. On the Acequia side, the recently-renovated back house has high ceilings, brick floors, a shepherd's fireplace, and numerous ceramic creations by former resident and ceramic artist, Priscilla Hoback. The updated kitchen blends stainless-steel appliances and granite counters with hand-hewn pine cupboards and Talavera tile. Each of the two, well-separated bedroom suites has space for an office. From the lush, peaceful garden is a staircase that ascends to Acequia Madre and additional parking. Turn the front house into a gallery or studio and live in the back; make one or both homes into rentals. Or, create a family compound. With RAC zoning for the front house, the possibilities abound. Enjoy the character and convenience of Historic, Eastside Santa Fe a minute's stroll or roll from Patrick Smith Park and the many galleries, shops and restaurants of Canyon Road.
