Property description

Welcome to the oasis of Casa Amarilla at Nambe River Ranch. This gorgeous 3,000 square foot, 3 bedroom, high ceiling home is situated on a 10 acre farm with apple orchard, heated swimming pool, and beautiful Sangre de Cristo mountain views. The property offers a rustic yet beautifully designed setting with horses, chickens, historical irrigation ditch, gardens and a luxurious swimming pool. Casa Amarilla is perfect for a family getaway or private retreat from the busy world.

Casa Amarilla is a scenic 25 minute drive from Santa Fe and 15 minutes from the inspiring Santa Fe opera house where performances can be enjoyed throughout the summer.
In the winter, enjoy access to three different ski resorts: Santa Fe ski basin (45min), Taos (90min), and Pajarito in Los Alamos (45 min). Once you have worn yourself out skiing you can relax in this cozy home with radiant heat flooring and fireplaces in each master bedroom and the living room. From the upstairs master bedroom you will enjoy beautiful views of the snow capped Sangre de Cristo range- the southern most section of the rocky mountains.
In the summer, you will enjoy a true oasis in the high mountain desert with rich cottonwood trees and sandstone clad salt water heated swimming pool!
The home is privately located in a traditional settlement area (Nambe pueblo in-holding). The home, designed and owned by a local award winning architect, reflects a modern interpretation of classical New Mexican design. The home's interior is richly designed in vibrant colors, unique furnishings, classical tapestries & wall hangings. Luring you out of this comfortable home are flagstone paths through native plant and cactus gardens leading to the pool with full outdoor kitchen, gazebo, shower and spectacular mountain views. While you relax by the pool, you'll hear distant joyful laughter as your kids enjoy the nearby (but not too close) 100 sq ft brick floored playhouse hidden in the young forest where tree perched northern pygmy owls can sometimes be found by day (summer). Mature cottonwood and apple trees with hammock and natural design swimming pool make this a true oasis. Warning: you may find it very hard to leave!

The swimming pool is heated to 80 degrees from June 1st to Oct 1st

There are two medium/large dogs who live on the 10 acre property. Garbo and Newman have free roam of the property at all times. If you or any of your family have any fears or problems with dogs, this beautiful property is not going to be a good fit for you.

This estate is magically hidden among a traditional northern New Mexico village neighborhood with a long history and a rugged rustic beauty.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1999

About: We built this beautiful property to share with our friends and family (our grand-kids pictured here). Yet there was so much time it waited for someone to come enjoy the splendor, that we are opening it up to others. We welcome you to come experience the rest and relaxation of this lush paradise in northern new mexico.

Why Private Homes:
We bought this property because it is in such a lush area in the high mountain desert. We have acres of apple trees and cooling cottonwoods. We remodeled the main house in 2001+ and currently still live here with our dogs, horses and chickens. In 2003+ we designed and built the beautiful guest house we offer to you here. We love the santa fe opera and enjoy a short drive to the performances throughout the summer season.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Casa amarilla offers a very private and peaceful setting for your vacation. The santa fe opera house is just 15 minutes away and the center of santa fe is another 10 minutes south. Here on our 10 acre property we have a salt water swimming pool and outdoor kitchen for a cool and beautiful setting to enjoy your vacation.
