              Below are a sampling of golf facilities to check out on your next visit to Santa Fe and the area.

              Isleta Eagle Golf Course is just 10 minutes south of Albuquerque or 80 minutes from Santa Fe. -

The Millennium Triple Chairlift will take snow sport enthusiasts to a new height of 12,075 feet and some of the southwest's finest skiing. The vistas atop Ski Santa Fe are unsurpassed and act as the gateway for thrills including steep bump runs, powder filled chutes, gladed tree-skiing, and plenty of groomers.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2006

              About the owner: I am an artist and my husband is an engineer who loves to golf! We live in San Diego where I teach art classes at my studio and at the Art Institute of California/San Diego and Brian is a program manager in the design engineering industry. We have two beautiful girls, our good natured golden retrievers. We both love music and met swing dancing, which we also enjoy when we are in Santa Fe, where there is a lively dance community!

              Why the Owner Chose Fort Marcy:
              For my 40th birthday we took a vacation to Santa Fe, and we both fell in love with it. I started coming back to Santa Fe after that to teach painting workshops every summer. The first time I came here I knew it was someplace special! The artistic community, fantastic restaurants, culture, shopping, people, architecture and music in the Plaza, it was a full sensory experience! In 2006 my husband and I decided to purchase a condo for our own use and as a future retirement home. Now I teach here in the summer and every other week I paint in the studio I make in the garage. You will see many of my paintings adorning the walls of the condo, Artista Casita!

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Several times a year I try to get out and enjoy Santa Fe and to paint the colorful changes. September and October are my favorite times, with the aspens turning in early October. I love walking on the dirt trails all over our neighborhood and overlooking the city with the mountains all around. July and August are wonderful with the music in the plaza and all the summer foliage going strong, outdoor dining and late summer sunsets. Christmas season is magical with the pinon smoke in the air, festive decorations all around and farolitos glowing at night. Early winter is delightful with the bright blue sky and snow! One year we took a sleigh ride outside of town! Spring in Santa Fe is glorious with the fruit trees blooming and floral scents in the air with all the bulb flowers making their way back from winter. I keep my easel and chair in the garage for any artists to use during their stay. The adobe construction keeps the garage cool in the summer and warm in the winter! Anytime of year is great for long walks around the city admiring the architecture, and going to many of the local spas,10,000 waves and La Posada among my favorite! If you have any questions about Santa Fe email me - I consider myself a goodwill ambassador to Santa Fe and know lots of fun places to explore.
