475 S Via Las Palmas
Gracefully situated on almost 2 acres of rolling lawns accented by streams, fountains, Koi pond, and citrus groves, the sprawling approximately 8,323-square-foot walled residence provides the ultimate in solitude. Drawing inspiration from the Pueblos and Spanish missions in New Mexico, the adobe-inspired dwelling radiates Pueblo tradition with Native pottery, weaving, artwork, tinwork, and ingenious inspired furniture around every corner. Celebrated as legendary designer Steve Chase’s last body of work, the abode melds cultural influencers by combining modern appointments with distinguished antiques.
Spanish Revival style architectural details including contoured, earth-toned walls and fireplaces, flat roof, and small carved arches are accentuated with latias and vega-lined beamed ceilings. All living areas including the large master suite, office, and two guest rooms are accented by custom designed tiles, cabinetry, countertops, and slate floors. The breakfast and dining rooms both capture sunlight and mountain views and open to the expansive kitchen which pays homage to the Southwest. A separate guest casita welcomes visitors with a living room, kitchen, two en-suite bathrooms, private yard, and patio.
Offering mesmerizing mountain views, indulge in the backyard oasis with towering palms, lush landscaping, and discrete walkways. Enjoy a lagoon style pool surrounded by boulders and trickling waterfalls, spacious loggia with outdoor kitchen, private tennis court with viewing pavilion, and large grassy area for hosting friends and family.
Rooted in signature Santa Fe style, 475 S Via Las Palmas eloquently captures a time past and brings it into the 21st century by blending modern influences.
