Home of the noted collector and beloved Santa Fe icon , the late Omer Claiborne- this lovely compound is tucked down a quiet lane off Canyon Road. The original home and guest house were built by Agnes Sims in 1947- 1948 . Omer designed the elegant main house in 1997 , attaching it to the original structure . This single level home has a clean , modernist aesthetic and features many architectural details , including lighted , recessed shelves for his museum quality artifacts , multiple fireplaces , concrete floors , French doors throughout , and 12' beamed ceilings. The 2 bedroom main house opens to a gracious entry courtyard, and flows seamlessly into the original house. The original adobe building is currently used as a gallery but can easily be converted into 2 bedrooms with an existing bath and a sitting area. The detached guest house is accessed through a brick courtyard , and offers privacy and charm. The established landscaping ,coveted location and flexible spaces add to the magic of this special property.
