553 Del Norte Lane
Walking Distance Close to Santa Fe Plaza
This charming gem is sited on a quaint 3,000 square-foot lot within easy walking distance of the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Designed to maximize a sense of spaciousness, the small-scale house incorporates a 13-foot coved ceiling and oversized windows to maximize natural light. The home includes walnut wood floors, custom knotty alder wood doors, custom painted cabinetry, stunning hardware, and bespoke furnishings. Exceptionally tall French doors in the living room create a natural flow into the home’s intimate courtyard.
The home’s exterior is the perfect complement to the property’s overall design, with a serene courtyard featuring lush flowerbeds framed in hand-cut stone and a delightful garden house. The landscaping seamlessly blends stone and ironwork, including 17th-century wrought-iron pieces meticulously transplanted from the owner’s previous home in Charleston, South Carolina, and tastefully displayed on the adobe walls in the courtyard garden.
This unique home combines remarkable sustainable features with an impeccably designed indoor space and an outdoor courtyard that provides tranquility and timeless beauty.
