Marfa house description

This elegant, renovated adobe has two bedrooms and two baths, as well as a yoga room with a twin bed, and a private study (where an air mattress can be inflated if wished). The house is designed to be a restful and beautiful artist's retreat, and a place of calm for travelers. Hang out, make cocktails, and cook at the end of a day of sightseeing. It's beautifully furnished and the kitchen is fully equipped. There are lots of books in the house and a large flat-screen TV with a Roku for your viewing pleasure.

Equipped with central air and heat (unlike many housesin Marfa), a washer / dryer, wifi, and a 37-inch flatscreen TV with DVD player & Roku. (No D/W.) There's a patio and front porch for resting and relaxing and grilling and eating outside under the night sky.

The house is on the west side of town, walking distance to the bookstore and Cochineal and Maiya's, or a 2 minute drive or bike ride in.

One note: the third bedroom, which has a twin bed, connects to the second bedroom. So while the house can accommodate 5, it might be most comfortable for a family with a kid, or friends who don't mind a 'railroad' bedroom.


A great place to stay when visiting with friends or looking for a quiet place to work. Come enjoy all Marfa has to offer!

                      Car: Recommended

                      There's lots to do in the area: tours of Chinati and Donald Judd's house, hikes in Alpine and in Big Bend, the excellent Marfa Book Co., a visit to the Marfa Mystery lights, dinner at nearby Cochineal and Maiya's, lunch at the Food Shark, drives under the open sky, swimming at Balmorrhea, and much more.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2008

                      About the owner: I'm a writer and editor from Brooklyn, NY, who first came to Marfa, TX on a grant from the Lannan Foundation, and fell in love with the wide-open spaces and community here. I hope you'll love it as much as I do.

                      Why the Owner Chose Marfa:
                      One thing that drew me to this house are the high ceilings, great light, and its many small rooms. It's a wonderful place to relax and work. There are two entrances and two bathrooms, so groups can have privacy. It's also nice to have the central air and heat.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The light, the airiness, the high ceilings.
