Daily Dream Home: New Mexico Showhouse


Today’s home is located in the established South Capitol neighborhood and within the heart of Santa Fe and has not been offered for over 40 years.

One year after designing and building the stately Governor’s Mansion in 1954 Willard Carl Kruger, an American born architect, built this home as his personal residence. W.C. Kruger served on the first New Mexico Board of Architects along with other notable New Mexican architects including John Gaw Meem and built many of historically registered State buildings such as the New Mexico State Capitol in Santa Fe.

The property was chosen as this year’s showhouse, for the famed designer forum in fall of 2018. This is a remarkable 4,442 square foot main home and 1,111 square foot guest home on 1.21 acres.

The home boasts original finishes and interior details including extensive wood cove ceiling molding, cabinetry and hardwood flooring. It was worked on by over a dozen design firms.

Over 2,000 people visited the home when it was open for showhouse tours.

There are six bedrooms total on the property.

A completely remodeled detached two bedroom, two bathroom is included in this rare offering. This melding of classic and modern is listed for $1.6 million with Santa Fe Properties, an affiliate of Luxury Portfolio International®.
