John Gaw Meem made NM architectural history in his development of Pueblo revival style architecture. From the La Fonda hotel in Santa Fe to the University of New Mexico campus where he designed 35 major buildings. Earlier in life Mr. Meem helped design the NY subway system!

During a career that span more than 30 years John Gaw Meem worked to bring the historic architecture of the region into early twentieth-century mainstream Meem made his mark by reinterpreting New México's century old Hispanic and Native American architectural traditions. The resulting Spanish Colonial or Pueblo Revival style would be his greatest architectural accomplishment.

409 Vassar NE reflects his Spanish Colonial Style in large comfortable rooms, Viga ceilings, wood and tile floors, cupboards, bookshelves, and tile work. John Gaw Meem signed off on the plan for this 3200 sq. ft. home.

Please visit with us this during this year's tour, Saturday and Sunday noon-4pm

Directions: From Lomas and Girard go south to Campus, west to Vassar, north to home.

402 Princeton SE

Apx. Yr: 1940 2 Bed/1Bath, 1116 SF
$ 185,000, MLS # 639285

402 Princeton SE is a two bedroom bungalow with a mother-in-law quarters, with the main house being built between 1942 and 1946 when the area just south of the University of New Mexico was undergoing rapid growth and expansion. Sitting on the southeast corner of Coal and Princeton, this property could easily be converted in a four-plex with the addition of two more units. There is adequate room for expansion and off street parking, should a new owner decide to build. Rentals are historically strong in this area. The house has a partial walk in basement that could be used for storage or as an additional work area or bedroom. The tenant, a relative of the executor of the estate, has done a great deal of remodeling and improvement to the property, but could still use some finishing touches. Priced at $185000, this home is the most reasonably priced rental income property in the area, and has great upside potential. This is the time to buy, before the market turns around and heads up again. Write us an offer.
