Situated only minutes from downtown on the northern banks of the Santa Fe River and built in 2008 in the community of Tres Placitas del Rio, this open concept and energy efficient home is sunny and bright with beautiful appointments and tranquil outdoor living spaces. The home incorporates energy efficient ICF construction with radiant heat and saltillo tile floors on the lower level and the framed upper level has bamboo floors, and baseboard heating. American Clay plaster walls and wood beams combined with tall windows bring in the beautiful natural setting which makes for a comfortable and secure feeling. There are two bedrooms with an additional loft space for a spacious master retreat, an office or studio, or conversion to a third bedroom. Tres Placitas del Rio is a quiet pocket neighborhood of 11 homes that share a common area of over 1 acre. The common area includes landscaped terraces, outdoor dining pavilion, organic gardens, fruit trees, walking paths, and a barn for goats and chickens. It's a perfect situation for anyone seeking a greater sense of community or for those with busy lifestyles that otherwise would not be able to have gardens, chickens, and goats as their sole responsibility. Gated access to the Santa Fe River and walking and biking trails and minutes from the Plaza, Farmers Market, and the Railyard. Whether you choose to be an active participant or just appreciate the bucolic rusticity of the community, this is an ideal place to call home.
