Private Homes, Historical Downtown house description

Permit #: 14-00124842

Located in an old residential neighborhood and perched a half-block up the hill overlooking historic Santa Fe, this authentic adobe home is a bit over two blocks from both The Plaza and the new Convention Center.

To be in Casa Galeria is to be in a work of art surrounded by 18' thick color-filled adobe walls, 1200 square feet of brick and saltillo tile floors, museum quality paintings, Southwest-international furnishings, and antiques from around the world. This two bedroom/one bath home has the extra appeal of separate built-in vanity/sinks in each bedroom.

The living room has--amidst its galeria of art--a small traditional kiva fireplace as well as an elegant Tree-of-Life hearth. Intimate dining room features an old Indian corner cabinet. Antique hand-carved doors are from Morocco and Old Mexico.

Everywhere, in-and-around, is the soulful adobe charm of quiet Old Santa Fe.

As you stroll through Santa Fe's best galleries, museums and shops, keep your eye on the sky; in two short blocks you can be home in time for a magical margarita-and-salsa sunset.

                  Just two blocks from the Plaza and five blocks from art-studded Canyon Road, our homes are in a close-to-nature setting. Just around the corner is the 30 acre Old Fort Marcy Park with its 360-degree ring-of-mountain-views and breathtaking sunsets. And beyond is National Forest. At once town and country, we are “The ideal location for your Santa Fe vacation.”
