Abiquiu house description

Uniquely handcrafted from inception to finish, Casa Granada is an artistically inspiring vacation home.Views of natural beauty are a marvel in every direction.
Only one mile from Highway 84, yet tucked away off a county road in peace and privacy, Casa Granada is located 2 miles from the pueblo of Abiquiu, 8 miles from heavenly Abiquiu Lake, 12 miles from Ghost Ranch Presbyterian Seminar Center and an hour’s drive from Santa Fe.

Rich old cottonwoods line the Chama River in front of Casa Granada, while majestic red rock formations tower behind. A brief drive or a beautiful walk will take you to Plaza Blanca (White City), Abiquiu’s intriguing pre-historic white limestone hoodoo formations. Casa Granada is set in the perfect location to take advantage of Abiquiu’s variety of outdoor and cultural adventures during every season.

You can spend the day hiking, kayaking, exploring Petroglyph rock art, visitng the home and museum of Georgia O’Keeffe, attending Hispanic feast days, and many more wonderful outings to enrich your stay.Day trips are accessible to almost all of the surrounding areas, including Chaco Canyon, Chama, Taos, Santa Fe, Ojo Caliente Mineral Springs, Bandelier National Monument, or the White Sand Dunes of Colorado. In winter time, the ski slopes of Taos, Santa Fe and Los Alamos are inviting downhill racers, and hundreds of thousands acre of wilderness are available for back country ski or snowshoe lovers.

Cross breezes and overhead fans cool Casa Granada in the summer and radiant under-floor heating makes the casita snug in the winter. Casa Granada has a welcoming sunroom in addition to its spacious open floor planned living/kitchen/dining area, one bedroom with a queen-size bed, and one bathroom. In the living area, a full-size sleeper futon is available to accommodate two additional guests. The house comes fully equipped including a utility room with washer and dryer and wireless internet. The interior is an elegant blend of New Mexican design features with Moorish accents. In addition to exquisite hand-carved furniture and woodwork details throughout the interior of the house, there is lovely outdoor garden space, BBQ grill, and a seating area.

                      About: Year Purchased: 1997 About the Owners Benyamin and Rabia van Hattum have lived a creative life in Abiquiu raising their 5 lively children over the last 30 years. Born in the Netherlands, Benyamin completed formal cabinet making at London City & Guild College in the United Kingdom. He was offered a position in Abiquiu as the master woodworker on Dar al Islam’s Medressa complex designed by the Egyptian architect Hasan Fathy. After completing 4 years on that project, he received so many private orders that he established his own business Andaluz Woodwork in 1988. After 20 years of producing furniture and architectural detail integrating traditional design into contemporary applications, he and Rabia began building and remodeling homes in northern New Mexico based on the design features and traditions in their portfolio of travels to Egypt, Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Mali, Morocco, Spain, Syria and the Balkans. Rabia spent many years managing Andaluz Woodwork and serving her community creating and implementing her own programs including a tutoring program for children at the local public library, summer and after school arts programs for disadvantaged youth, cultural education programs of international storytelling and folk music, and ABC! (Arts of Boost Curriculum) using kinesthetic and spatial expression to motivate student learning. Services Offered They are especially knowledgable of the magnificent surrounding areas where they live and have led many different hiking groups onto magical routes not in the guide books. They are able to offer every level of walks and hikes for any type of person or families. Rabia’s enjoys engaging with children in mixed media art projects. For a reasonable fee they can offer these services to visitors to make their visit a fulfilling and memorable one.
