Eastside Garden Oasis in a Desert Town A hillside oasis in the high desert, this lush, garden sanctuary on famed Upper Canyon is an ideal escape from the stress of the outside world. As you walk through turquoise doors to the inner gardens, enchantment awaits. You hear the soothing sounds of nature, birds singing, bees humming, a waterfall rushing as koi splash below. Garden patios and terraces welcome you to relax and breathe in Santa Fe's crystalline air. The house itself is warm, elegant and generous. It has range. Whether you're in the mood for hosting indoor or outdoor dinner parties, croquet on the back lawn, flopping in front of the television, reading on the terrace, swimming, or private time with loved ones, every day is a holiday in your own personal sanctuary. You'll find great restaurants, theatre, film, art galleries and shopping, only a few minutes away. Walled and gated for security and privacy, the estate underwent a meticulous reconstruction by the current owner. The finishes are impeccable. High ceilings lend lightness to the rooms; hand-scraped walnut floors, a touch of sophistication. Festive murals and other hand-painted accents add a colorful, whimsical touch. Large windows and ballroom doors open to both garden and mountain views. The grounds offer a large pool and hot tub, open-air dining, and detailed landscaping including abundant fruit trees, aspen groves, flowering bushes, wild flowers, a greenhouse, vegetable gardens and sloping meadows.
