Private Homes, Historical Downtown house description

:: Colorful Guesthomes :: ColorfulSantaFeLLC ::

CASA ADORE' (The Endearing One)
This cute and cozy three-room territorial-style adobe is classic Old-Santa-Fe. Built in the 1930s for his family by the late 'adobero' Jose Antonio Dominguez, this 770 sq foot home blends historic hand-crafted Dominguez furnishings with earthy international decor and contemporary museum-quality paintings. Eighteen delightful custom wall colors integrate the historic home. Entry is into a spacious, light-filled country kitchen with its pine plank flooring. The pass-through livingroom/den with its original viga-beam ceilings has two beautiful old storage 'roperos' - (amoires) . The bed-bath suite with its historic turquoise(!)viga-beam ceiling and pine flooring has oriental rugs, Mexican writing desk & other antiques and art.

On the outside, a street-side, wisteria laden, wood portal frames the territorial style windows with traditional lace curtains. Casa Adore' is buffered from street activity by a small supply room, and is entered from OTERO's internal courtyard.

CASA ADORE' is located in the OTERO-by-the-Plaza three-home compound. The Compound is just three blocks (a five minute stroll) to the Plaza and five blocks to art-studded Canyon Road. It is nestled into the wooded knoll that overlooks the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Aside from its easy accessibility to all Santa Fe has to offer, the Compound's great appeal is its quiet privacy, its unique colors and decor, and its flexibility in accommodating from 1 to 16 guests (or up to 42 in conjunction with neighboring homes). This 3/4 acre haven also adjoins the thirty-acre Fort Marcy Park with its 360-degree ring-of-mountain-views and breathtaking sunsets. Just beyond is National Forest.

Otero-by-the-Plaza is at once downtown and country :: The ideal location for your Santa Fe vacation

' Casa Adore' is my favorite house in Santa Fe. So intimate, so genuine -- like being in the old villages. It's a place to 'just be!' - MN (Santa Fe Resident.)

                      About the owner: Sir Dr. Russell Betts ('Russ') has lived and worked most of his professional life in Asia, the South Pacific, and Europe addressing issues relating to social, economic and political change.

Noel Bennett has lived most of her life in the Southwest. She is an abstract artist; her paintings grace the lobbies of several Santa Fe banks. Her art can also be viewed in the Noel Bennett Gallery by appointment only. In past years Noel lived with the Navajo for eight years and authored nine books on Navajo weaving, history and culture. Noel brings to Colorful Santa Fe a well-honed sense of color and unique perspectives on native world-views..... Together we welcome the opportunity of hosting you in Colorful Santa Fe!

                      Why the Owner Chose Private Homes, Historical Downtown:
                      Twenty years ago we hand-built a now somewhat-celebrated, environmental strawbale home in the Jemez Mountains above Santa Fe. Ten years ago we decided to purchase an in-town pied a'terre--just a small gem-of-a-place in which we could overnight during shopping trips in Santa Fe. Wanting to get the right place in the right location, we engaged in an eight month exhaustive search and ended up purchasing--not one--but two adobe homes in this historic neighborhood just 3 blocks from the Plaza. They became our first guest homes. Now, in addition to living in this same neighborhood, we manage 8 other guesthomes in the same residential block. Why were we so seduced by this neighborhood? In short, it is partway up the ONLY knoll close to the Plaza. So from within any of our guesthomes, there is a constant sense of place: Our over-the-roof-top-views are of the historic Santa Fe Cathedral against a backdrop of mountain ranges and glorious sunsets. AND WITHIN 4-5 WALKING MINUTES WE ARE DOWNTOWN--RIGHT IN THE VERY HEART OF OLD SANTA FE! Here the glories of historic Santa Fe and our Southwest landscape are bundled into one. Our fascinating guests keep coming back and are now friends. We'll never move!
