555 & 551 Camino Del Monte Sol

Not just one address, but two: a Pueblo Revival love affair. The addresses 555 & 551 Camino Del Monte Sol encompass the entirety of the William Penhallow Henderson estate, featuring a circa 1922 adobe home renovated in 2010 combined with a smart, secluded guesthouse. The main home, set far back on the deep lot, behind a naturalistic planting of natives, accessible via a gravel drive, once reached, yields a strikingly low, substantial, rustic structure.


The interiors provides a plethora of textures including plaster, roughhewn beams, wood plank ceilings, and square terra cotta tile floors. The materials bring a certain weight, a weight of both rugged sophistication as well as cozy cocoon, both achieved with the use of the aforementioned materials, in equal parts.

The bedrooms of this house provide intimate escapes from rolling gardens and the vast green desert outside. The wonderfully rustic and appropriate wooden ceilings provide the continuous backdrop for the nest-like quality of these lodgings. Spaces like these invite you to pause, reflect, and admire the details, both of their craftmanship and in their stylistic interactions.

Lush, sunflower filled gardens, deep, generously furnished porches, and intimate design details define this home. Once you are past the entry gates, you are transported into a new world.

This home features 5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, within 4,626 sqaure feet on a roughly 1.35 acre, or 58,800 square foot, lot.

555 & 551 Camino Del Monte Sol are listed by Team Stedman/Kehoe/Hirsch of Sotheby’s International Real Estate with an asking price of $3,800,000.
