Historic estate in the heart of Santa Fe! - This estate is a priceless piece of Santa Fe's heritage. Owned by the legendary statesman Manuel Lujan Sr. and the Lujan family for generations. When the political dealings that brought New Mexico from territorial status into statehood took place in its kitchen, the architect John Gaw Meem modified it to be the first of territorial style, now iconic to regional southwest architecture. All other territorial style buildings in Santa Fe thereafter were based upon its model.
Historic home with many features and comforts. The interior features hand-trawled buttercream plaster with coved ceilings, white oak flooring in kitchen area, three large bedrooms, two with HUGE closets (seriously, large enough to put twin beds in), two baths, a laundry and pantry, an office (or additional bedroom), a large hallway with built-in linen closet, a very large parlor/dining room, and a family dining/sunroom including lots of windows looking onto the very green garden orchard with fruit trees including plum, peach and apricot. Several courtyards, portals, a carport, and raised vegetable beds grace the exterior, which is bordered by compound walls. One entrance is equipped with a handicapped-accessible ramp and one bathroom is handicapped fitted. There is steam heat and a fireplace in the living area. Ample parking is available, and the expansiveness of the property is quite rare in its railyard/downtown location. Property has been well-cared for and it shows! Move-in ready and can be completely furnished, partially furnished or not at all. You choose! Fantastic home for entertaining!
The sheds are being transformed into a beautiful one bedroom apartment which will be available for rent in the near future.
Could be used as a studio, home-based business office such as massage, therapy or something similar. Tenant in the main house will be given first opportunity to rent before placing it on the market.
Quite simply, this is a fantastic oasis in the heart of Santa Fe. Walking distance from the railyard market and very close to the Santa Fe Art Institute. Very private and quiet even so close to St. Francis.
The large lot behind the property is not included in the lease but was once the family farm and fed the neighborhood. This property is truly at the heart of Santa Fe in many ways. Let it steal your heart!
Tenants pay all utilities. No smoking allowed inside the property. Pet friendly with management company approval. Security deposit $3,400.00. Minimum 12 month lease.
