Property description

Casita de las Estrellas is the epitome of the charming, authentic casita that everyone looks for when visiting Santa Fe, located within a 10-15 min. (.7 mile) walk of old Santa Fe's picturesque plaza. In the summer, enjoy the private flagstone patio/garden area exclusively for the use of Casita de las Estrellas. There is a larger garden area that is for the use of our other two casitas. I have this policy as I feel that when all of the casitas are occupied, that would be too many people to use the larger garden comfortably.

In the winter, cozy up by your own kiva fireplace. The casita is very secluded and quiet, featuring authentic hand-painted Mexican tile and coved ceilings with original vigas, furnished with hand-carved southwestern style furniture. The bedroom features fine linens for a wonderful night's sleep. There is a shower only. Casita de las Estrellas features a full-size sleeper sofa in the living room area. The sunny atmosphere is the result of skylights throughout. Tastefully decorated with attractive artwork and hand-woven rugs. Off-street parking available as well as laundry facilities. Upon your arrival, you will find all the ingredients for a continental breakfast! The casita is maintained with care and pride.

Casita de las Estrellas is the smallest of our three casitas (but still very comfortable and attractively decorated) and that is reflected in the price.

Cooling: The casita does not have central air conditioning. We have provided a portable air conditioner and fans for the summer months if people want to use them. The casita is the original adobe construction which has been used in New Mexico for centuries. The adobe walls keep the casitas cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The only kind of air conditioning that I could put in these historic buildings would be window units and I refuse to do that as they can be quite noisy and unsightly. In addition, in Santa Fe, the nights are about 25-30 degrees cooler than the days, so we do not have hot summer nights.

Short walk (10-15 minutes) to the plaza, but less expensive than staying on the East side. A few blocks from the new Railyard and Guadalupe street dining and shopping. Quiet and private, in a residential neighborhood.

Casita de las Estrellas is located in the historic Guadalupe district at 102 Pena Place. It is a short walk to the Santuario de Guadalupe, the Georgia O’Keefe Museum, the Museum of Fine Arts, Palace of the Governors, etc. Restaurants within easy walking distance include the Cowgirl Hall of Fame, the well known Coyote Café, the renowned Pink Adobe, as well as many others. There are many shops and galleries filled with lots of interesting and attractive merchandise.

Other Activities: World famous Santa Fe Opera summer season.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My husband and I bought this property more than 13 years ago. I love owning the property and knowing the people who come back year after year. We have lived in Santa Fe for over thirteen years and live a little bit outside of the city limits. We have a 17-year-old son, two collies and a cat.

Why the Owner Chose Guadalupe:
When I first saw it, I knew it was the one because of the privacy, quiet and peacefulness. Short walk (10-15 minutes) to the plaza, but less expensive than staying on the East side. A few blocks from the new Railyard.

The Unique Benefits at this Bungalow:
I always put in the makings for a breakfast (cereal, milk, juice, bread, jam, fruit, butter) so people won't have to arrive in the afternoon and then immediately go find a grocery store.
