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, this is the first time the property has been on the market. 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” buildings in Santa Fe thereafter were based upon its model. The generous property includes a large lot, once the family farm, now ideal for further development. Courtyards, portals, workshops or “cuartitos,” a carport, a garden orchard, and raised vegetable beds grace the exterior, which is bordered by compound walls. The interior features hand-trawled buttercream plaster with coved ceilings, white oak flooring in kitchen area, two large bedrooms, two baths, a laundry and pantry, an office (or additional bedroom), a den, a very large parlor/dining room, and a sunroom. One entrance is equipped with a handicapped-accessible ramp and a bathroom is handicapped fitted. There is steam heat and a fireplace. Ample parking is available, and the expansiveness of the property is quite rare in its railyard/downtown location. This property is truly at the heart of Santa Fe in many ways. Let it steal your heart!
