Built in 1920 by Mrs E.B. Quick, the Marfa Boarding House is a two-story adobe home that sits just inside the city limits of Marfa. The house fronts on Washington Street and is across the road from the historic Brite Ranch where you can see Mt. Livermore and the Davis Mountains to the north towering over Chihuahuan Desert Grasslands. The Marfa Boarding House is located on one of the highest hills in the city with wonderful area views, especially from the second floor porch and windows. The property consists not only of a 7 bedroom, 3 bath two-story main home, but also has a Casita, Barn, and extensive garden and grounds, all on three acres. The property has been remodeled three times in the last 8 years into a grand home with the current owner putting the finishing touches on this unique lovely Marfa heritage homestead.
If you need more room and would like to add the casita to your rental, please see our VRBO listing #492441.
