Here is another view from the living room looking toward the carved front door. The front door opens onto a covered porch. Just to the right of the door is the family room.

Family room

The family room is adjacent to the entry and set at a right angle to the living room. It is part of the original home. Beyond the family room and through the wide archway is the dining room with the kitchen beyond the dining room.

Dining room

Here is a view of the dining room from the family room. Lots of natural light. The kitchen is just beyond. The original home has lovely hardwood floors.

Half bath

This is the half bath/powder room that is off the living room. It has a high ceiling and natural light.

Master bedroom

The master bedroom repeats the beams and corbels of the living room and has its own bathroom and walk-in closet. The windows look out into the backyard.


The hallway for the second and third bedrooms comes off the dining room. Notice the classic phone alcove on the left and the built in cabinet/drawers on the right.

Bedroom 3

The second bedroom is at the end of the hall on the left and looks toward the front of the house. Notice the lovely hardwood floors.


The third bedroom is a generous 9 x 17 and is separated from the hallway by a study/sitting room.

Hall bath

The hall bath for the second and third bedrooms has the bathtub in an archway and the toilet in another archway. Charming old-home details with modern updated fixtures!


The office/craftroom/workout space/yoga room is separated from the rest of the home and is accessed by an exterior door or through the garage. It's the perfect get-away from the rest of the activities in the home.


The laundry room has a handy sink and lots of upper cabinets for storage. It is located between the living room and the garage.

Floor plan

The floor plan shows how the new addition meets the classic home at the entryway. The addition has the master suite, living room and garage. The home is heated with two forced-air gas furnaces and is cooled with two refrigerated air conditioning units. The solar electric panels help keep the cooling costs low.

Backyard raised beds

The backyard is ready for gardening with raised garden beds and some lawn. The property has irrigation ditch rights that can be used to water the lawn and trees. The front and side yard xeriscape is on a drip system.

Backyard side

Here is the back and side of the home shown from the street. Kestrel Court is a short road with a cul-de-sac. The only traffic is from the local neighbors.

Street view

This established near North Valley neighborhood has mature cottonwood trees and the sought-after rural feeling. Located near the Rio Grande Nature Center State Park, there are plenty of walking/biking/birding trails.

Wall decoration

The east side of the property is bordered by an adobe wall---here is a spot to peek through the wall toward Rio Grande Blvd.
