15 Fort Defina
This charming home with three bedrooms, two full baths plus an office was built in 1990 with much attention to quality and with loads of Santa Fe style: vigas, Saltillo tile, plastered bancos, adobe-style fireplace, custom ceramic tile, and a beautiful portal. Open and light-filled, it has approximately 2,240 sq. ft. and a separate tack room/workshop building. There are views of the Pedernal Peak and Sierra Negra that inspired the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe. On the El Rito Creek, the home sits on 14 peaceful acres that attract migrating snow geese, heron and sandhill cranes, and there is plenty of room for a studio or full barn. It has a strong well and underground electrical utilities. An additional adjacent 10 acres is also available for purchase. About 1/2 hour to Espanola, and one hour to Santa Fe and Taos, so very close to culture, skiing and the necessities of life, such as hospitals, Trader Joes, Whole Foods, the Santa Fe Opera, and worldclass restaurants.
