Published February 9, 2012 by housecrazy

In the high desert about 20 minutes beyond Santa Fe, New Mexico, you can find this unique home:

Part adobe, part solar, part rock-outcropping, part water feature, this house seems to encompass all the elements of nature.

Overlooking the expansive views of pinions and junipers, this exquisite home is both green AND historic.

According to the house’s very own website:

A leading Santa Fe, New Mexico eco-friendly residence was originally designed by the forefather of solar architecture, Bill Lumpkins. The private estate remains a leading green property with the help of a top-rated solar heating system designed by Burke Denman, solar heated floors as well as a rain and grey water irrigation system for landscaping.

This house is as toasty as a roasting chili:

Rustic luxury – southwestern style!

An indoor stone waterfall? So 1970’s! So Hugh Hefner!

Although parts of the home have a more “old mission” feel:

I love the decor, but… those pitchfork things are a little scary… especially if you have young children around.

This house has four large bedrooms and two bathrooms.

I’m crazy about the casual decorating – it feels very welcoming and comfortable.

The exposed beams add such dimension to an already fascinating space.

The kitchen is noteworthy not only for the craftsman/mission style cabinetry, but also for the red-brick flooring:

Brick floors are so eye-catching with all their imperfections and textures – love ’em!

This house is so very zen. And the views are, well…

Asking price: $990,000

But well worth the money!
