This remarkable piece of NM history is nestled amongst 11+ acres of mature trees and fields of grasses near the Tesuque river. Artists Myrtle and Wilfred Stedman built this 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with 1 bedroom, 1 bath guest house bordering the Tesuque Pueblo during the early 1940s with Myrtle becoming the first licensed woman contractor in the state. The entry hall has wood walls, a beam and plank ceiling, a flagstone floor and handcrafted tin ceiling lamp. The great room has huge, hand-hewn vigas, an over-sized kiva fireplace, and stunning Ski Santa Fe views. Wooden lintels and thick wood planks frame the doorways and windows throughout. Natural mud plaster emanates warmth and coziness. The kitchen has wooden floors, handmade cabinets, a copper countertop with a double farm sink, and drawer pulls fashioned from pieces of leather and wood by Myrtle and "Sted" when hardware was scarce during the war. The library with built-in shelves and flagstone floors is open to both the living room and formal music room with its tiled floor which leads to a large foyer and to the backyard with a wildflower garden. The main bedroom has 4 vertical windows, nearly floor to ceiling, bringing the outside in, a perfect way to start the day. There's a second bedroom, full bathroom/laundry room, and a third bedroom currently used as a family room. Enjoy this unique property with a 2-stall horse barn and abundant surface water rights as a home, a vacation home, or add a newer home.
