The home is also very close to downtown, and yet very quiet, and so is the best of both worlds. Access to downtown is a short and easy stroll, with several off street walking paths leading downtown with easy access to both the Plaza area as well as Canyon Road. This light filled, part adobe home features highly effective passive solar heating, including south facing Trombe and adobe walls. All ceilings throughout the house are wood with exposed beams, with 12 foot ceilings in the great room, sun room, and kitchen, and an expansive window filled entryway. With, newly renovated kitchen and baths, the kitchen includes high end stainless steel JennAir appliances, with gas cooking, cherry cabinets, and granite countertops - welcoming for any cook. A generous pantry adjoins the kitchen with solid wood shelving. The master bath has a new soaking tub with granite decking, a large shower with porcelain tiles and frameless glass enclosure, and granite countertop on the cherry dual sink vanity cabinet. The second bathroom has a large shower with porcelain tiles, frameless glass doors, and cherry vanity with granite top. Both the great room and the master bedroom have large kiva fireplaces, and the house has an attached oversized two car garage with wifi connected garage door opener, a large work bench, and storage cabinets. The home has refrigerated central air conditioning, controlled by a wifi connected thermostat (which also controls the heating).
