Owner info

Year Purchased: 2003

About the owner: My girlfriend and I spend approximately 9 months a year living in Santa Fe, NM and the other 3 months in Guatemala. This is a house that I designed and built. We have a large enclosed private garden with numerous flowers, fruits and organic vegetables. In 2013 we built a small (460 sq. ft) casita which will be furnishing during the winter months (2014-2015). The garden is a great place for bird watchers! A river is along the west side of the property. Everyone loves this place.
