The Krause residence was designed for a hilltop on Santa Fe's north side with sweeping views of mountain ranges and mesas to the east and west. The home was sited to take advantage of the changing skies and dramatic seasonal changes for which Santa Fe, and northern New Mexico are known. The traditional adobe residence features antique wood beams and doors throughout, and a dramatic kiva-styled entertainment room/bar. Finishes and detailing include craftsman-designed tinwork, ironwork, and woodwork; along with diamond trowel plaster walls and fireplaces, and custom hardware. Traditional Southwestern portals ring the north and west of the home for outdoor entertaining. Contemporary features of the 3-bedroom home include an exercise room, office, 3-car garage, and master suite with sauna.
