On almost three acres with beautiful views, The Sunny Slope House is a rare opportunity to experience authentic Pueblo Revival architecture, fully updated to today’s place and time. Originally designed and built for Edward Tatum in 1939 by John Gaw Meem, who is regionally and nationally known as the father of the Pueblo Revival period in Santa Fe. Two bedroom suites have full bathrooms, fireplaces, comfortable seating areas, and access to their own portals and patios. A wonderful walled front courtyard and portal offer fabulous outdoor living, which includes a full kitchen outside. The home has a comfortable and unassuming appeal with complete privacy on two legal lots on Tatum Lane off Old Santa Fe Trail, just moments from the Plaza. In 2014 McDowell Fine Homes faithfully restored and sensitively updated the home. Original plans, sketches, research, invoices and letters are available with the purchase of this historic home.
