36 State Rd 240

Step back in history into this extraordinary classic adobe home with old world charm and true New Mexican flavor. Tucked away behind latilla fencing and bordered by the little Rio Grande del Rancho, is a sanctuary set on 1.4 acres of private land. This unique property, in the traditional farmhouse style, offers privacy and meandering gardens throughout. The home is set up as 2 master suites, each with a private bath and adjoining areas. There is a lovely solarium, a cozy den, a large artist studio and many rambling spaces to explore, each with authentic detail. Many of the rooms are defined by Carmen Velarde's sculptural work, and her kiva fireplaces are spread throughout the home. Entering the property you are greeted with a lush setting of mature shade trees, fruit trees, and landscaping throughout. Much of the yard can be watered via the historic acequia running throughout the property. Enjoy afternoons sitting by the fountain, gazing at the Rio, baking in the outdoor orno, or entertaining under the wooden ramada, all surrounded by low stone walls and benches. The front entryway takes you into the open dining room and kitchen areas. The kitchen is a cooks dream with upscale appliances, butcher-block island and plenty of built-in storage. A lovely feature of the kitchen is the table high kiva fireplace, creating the hearth that is the center of the home. The adjoining dining room w/ wooden floors, vigas and another extraordinary fireplace, is comfortable, and a gathering place for family dinners and entertaining. Enjoy the large windows in the light-filled sunroom on the south side of the house, with built-in bancos and bookshelves, and the feeling you are in the yard. The guest bedroom with fireplace and private bath, is tucked off the solarium, on the south side of house. The second master suite, on the opposite side of the house, boasts yet another fireplace, a small pond, and a lovely den or sitting area with flagstone floors and soft curvy shelving for you treasures. Adjacent to the den is a large artist studio with a skylight, another fireplace and beautiful shelving, oversized ceilings, wooden floors, and a sink. The primary bedroom with attached bathroom and plenty of closet space has easy access to the private hot tub and gardens just outside. There is a lovely patio, another exterior fireplace, and a sweet entertaining space with ramada all accessed from the den area. Separate heated building with washer/dryer is great for storage. A special feature is the renovated garage which is more of a small chapel, designed by Carmen Velarde, and includes another fireplace and alter. Harkening to the days of old, the Saint Frances de Assisi church bells can still be heard hourly. Call us for a private tour of this historic gem! serious inquiries only.
