Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: After 14 years in the computer field, property owner, Ellen O'Bryan relocated from the Puget Sound area to Silver City. Having spent most of her life around water - growing up on Galveston Island, living in Puerto Rico and Puget Sound - Ellen finds New Mexico, and the high desert of the Silver City area, truly the Land of Enchantment with the amazing colors, the star-studded nights, the stellar weather, and wonderful people.

Why the Owner Chose Silver City:
Ellen fell in love with New Mexico during the (MANY;-) years attending graduate school at UT Austin - a destination well worth the day long drive across Texas. During her yearly trips to New Mexico, Ellen dreamed of one day living in New Mexico. As Adobe Agave's owner & proprietor, Ellen O'Bryan, has found the realization of another dream - to own and run a small vacation rental of individual cottages - like the old motor court motels she saw on summer family road trips - in a magical setting. Ellen bought the adobe sixplex that houses Adobe Agave in 2006 and spent the first two years renovating, furnishing and decorating Adobe Agave. Ellen considers Adobe Agave to be an ongoing work of art, is always making improvements, and thoroughly enjoys refining her vision and caring for her guests.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Another one of Ellen's lifelong interests has been architecture - in particular, the creation of unique living spaces and earth built structures. So she finds the perfect blending of this interest in Adobe Agave. The foot thick adobe walls and the simplicity of the 110+ year old structure of Adobe Agave provides a peaceful, quiet, tranquility that both Ellen and her guests enjoy.
