312 E. Berger Street
Designed by the legendary John Gaw Meem in 1935 for Berkely Johnson, this historic Santa Fe home is subtly dramatic, while sublimely comfortable, with the warmth & patina of years, & provenance. The commanding living room has very high beamed ceilings with brilliant clerestory windows that bathe the house in sunshine; a graceful pueblo center fireplace; nichos in the walls; original classic oxblood concrete floors that glow with age; & perfect walls for an art collection! From above, a reading loft with a European balcony outside overlooks this great room, as does a roomy library below. In the cozy modern kitchen a corner kiva fireplace perches at eye level among granite countertops, handmade cabinets, and a handy breakfast peninsula. The attached guesthouse, with exterior door, contains a main room, kitchenette, bath, & extra sleeping loft. Nearby the sunroom welcomes you with windows down two sides, a huge skylight, and a most cheerful ambiance.
