The Inside Adobe Walls house

Home - Santa Fe Real Estate Guide - - CONTENT - By Paul Wei­de­man

This hand­some house is lo­cated on a won­der­ful cor­ner lot in the South Cap­i­tal district: 710 Gilder­sleeve Street, within walk­ing dis­tance of the Santa Fe Plaza. Ar­chi­tect T. Charles Gaas­tra and en­gi­neer James Gladding built it in 1928 for David Chávez, who was elected mayor of Santa Fe six years later and went on to serve as a New Mex­ico Supreme Court jus­tice from 1960 to 1968.

The liv­ing room is stately and com­fort­able, with wood floors, lovely plas­tered walls, and a ceil­ing of boards on bul­let-carved beams. A fea­ture fire­place is flanked by built-in book­shelves, white-painted wood with glass doors, ex­tend­ing to both walls. The room has sev­eral win­dows plus French doors and dou­ble sky­lights, so is nice and bright— and the en­tire house is very quiet.

The kitchen is out­fit­ted with beige granite coun­ter­tops and stain­less-steel ap­pli­ances, in­clud­ing a DCS range oven (with color­ful tile back­splash), North­land re­frig­er­a­tor, and Bosch dish­washer. The white-painted wood cab­i­nets are faced with ei­ther wain­scot-bead­ing or glass. The ad­ja­cent din­ing room has an el­e­gant chan­de­lier and a tra­di­tional fogón (bell-shaped cor­ner fire­place).

The four-bed­room house totals 3,625 square feet. The mas­ter suite is graced by a coved-plaster ceil­ing and a stylish, sub­stan­tial fire­place. There is a sit­ting room/of­fice and a bath­room with dou­ble sink and mar­ble tops.

Glass doors lead to a beau­ti­fully land­scaped court­yard with thriv­ing gar­dens and a large, ter­raced wa­ter fea­ture with boul­ders, wa­ter­falls, and a koi pond. Also on the 0.27-acre lot are flag­stone walks through lilacs and fruit trees; a de­tached, heated stu­dio/of­fice/gym/play room; and sep­a­rate quar­ters with a pri­vate en­trance with bed­room and bath, per­fect for guests or a nanny.

710 Gilder­sleeve is served by city wa­ter and sewer. It is listed by Sabine Ar­taud, Cold­well Banker Trail­sWest Realty, for $1,095,000.
