For many people, Santa Fe is a dream location: warm days, cool nights, unbeatable mountain views and a cool Southwest vibe that’s captured in this surprisingly affordable pueblo-style townhome. The custom wood, tile and metalwork and garage-turned-art studio fit right into a city that’s been recognized as the third largest art market in America, with 240 galleries scattered around town. George O’Keeffe lived and worked here off and on for 57 years, so make sure to stop at the Georgia O’Keeffe Museum, which collects some 3,000 of her works.
