This lovely home has an updated kitchen and great multi-purpose room! There's a formal living room and dining area as well as a more casual eating space that is open to both the kitchen and multi-purpose room. This room was added on in the mid 90's and is everyone's favorite. It could be called a solarium because it has so many windows. It's heated efficiently by a gas stove and the brick floors collect the warmth. It opens to a nicely landscaped and fenced backyard where there is also a storage shed that conveys with the property. The kitchen was remodeled in 2001 with Corian counters, a tile back-splash, pull-out drawers and a wine rack. The windows were replaced in 2001, the roof in 2003, the furnace was new in 20008 and the evaporative cooling is ducted throughout the house. There is room for extra parking on the side of the house and the half-sized single-car garage is now used for storage.

Santa Fe city southwest is the largest area of Santa Fe and still growing.
This older, family community boasts an eclectic mix of commercial development and mid-priced adobe structures. St. Anne’s church and Larragoite elementary school help create a neighborhood atmosphere.
Barrio de la Canada
Close to town and just west of the west side, this small area provides a quiet, family-oriented community. The homes are larger in size than the west side and many have special decorative touches. Older landscaping and mature trees line the sidewalks.
Traveling west on Agua Fría Street you will find a delightful park known as Frenchie’s Field. Directly across is Casa Alegre. These smaller homes are similar to the Casa Solana neighborhood as they were also developed by Allen Stamm in the 1950s. Some of the great features of this area are the close proximity to shopping, schools and churches such as St. John the Baptist Catholic Church, 1301 Osage Avenue.
The homes here, accessed from Monterey drive just off Cerrillos road, are also of Stamm-design with hardwood floors and vigas in an area with parks, schools and churches. A broader selection of architectural elements are available here from the flat roof styles of California to Spanish pueblo or Territorial . Planned by famed Santa Fe architect John Gaw Meem, Kaune Elementary School, 1409 Monterey Drive, serves the families here. The school was named for Alfred Kaune, a past president of the Santa Fe school board.
Located just off Airport Road, this neighborhood features parks, open spaces and affordable housing. Begun in 1995 by a nonprofit group, Tierra Contenta’s will ultimately feature 5,500 units, of which 3,700 will be single-family residences. The rest will be multifamily townhouses, duplexes and apartments. Commercial areas and many acres of open space with walkways and bike trails are also planned, along with schools and churches.
The southwest of Santa Fe within city limits also includes the Villa Linda Mall and the Genoveva Chavez Community Center , 3221 Rodeo Rd, a newer public facility featuring a leisure swimming pool with triple loop slide, a 50 meter lap pool and diving boards, ice skating rink, track, aerobics and a weight room.
