Reflecting a blend of cultural vernacular, 76 Calimo Circle pays homage to Santa Fe’s historic Palace of the Governors. This single-level adobe is not only the perfect “pajarito” or nesting place but is also a quietly straightforward contemporary space for the buyer looking for a home minutes from city center. The main house is sited to maximize summer solar shade and the warming winter sun. A 100-foot-long deep portal further shields the main house from the elements, while efficiently connecting guest casita, garage or studio/office and additional private outside living spaces. A terraced central garden with raised beds, a flagstone patio surrounded by mixed, mature landscaping with water feature all define good living and total privacy. Old Pecos Trail Estates is a gated community alongside the Old Las Vegas Highway where privacy is assured. Inside, one is immediately aware of the architects’ attention to detail, spatial sense and rectilinear plan, as the open concept interior reveals the utter simplicity of organization. Artfully warming, acid-washed and pigmented concrete flooring illuminates the designer’s expression of the contemporary idiom. Enjoying either of two floor-to-ceiling glass pyramidal enclosures – one off the great room -- the other off the master suite -- is like stepping into nature on snowy days or just enjoying the piñon-juniper landscape. Both reveal either discreet views to nearby foothills or distant mountains.
