In this week’s Homes magazine, we look at a beautiful property nestled in the Embudo Valley that hugs the banks of the Rio Grande. Homeowner Donna Henley discovered the property in the late 1990s and designed a property that links the history of the past with the present. Then, keeping the charm and beauty of the land, she took this hidden gem and built a new home designed by Santa Fe architect Greg Allegretti. The property contains a cabin, office, and barn set harmoniously on 2.7 acres of green land fed by an acequia.

We talk to Nan Fischer, owner and operator of Nannie Plants in El Prado. Meeting Fischer is like stepping back into the eco-world of the 1960s. Her outrageous enthusiasm and physical, emotional, and experiential dedication to a single-minded goal — encouraging you to create beautiful, organic flower and food production gardens.

Finally, we turn to the experts at Santa Fe’s The Firebird on creating the perfect outdoor living space for relaxing and entertaining.

Find all this and our regular features in this month’s Homes magazine.
