Cielo Grande condo description

This spacious, 1000 square foot, two-bedroom, luxury condominium comfortably sleeps four adults. It is completely furnished, and decorated in Southwestern Style.

Conveniently located in northwest Santa Fe, the apartment is a one mile walk or drive from the Plaza - the center of Santa Fe.

The De Vargas Shopping Center is three-tenths of a mile away for the convenience of longer term guests in need of the practicalities of day-to-day life such as groceries, drug store, movie theaters, DVD rentals, etc.

Condo Features includes:
Two bedrooms with one and a half baths
Living room with dining area
Kitchen with full-size appliances including refrigerator, stove with oven, dishwasher, as well as all cook and dishware
Sunny breakfast bar
Kiva fireplace
Wood beamed ceiling provides New Mexican charm
Laundry - washer and dryer inside the unit
Central heat and air conditioning
Outdoor parking
Elevator access

A second story balcony looks towards the ski basin to the east and the twinkle of city lights at night. The balcony has outdoor furniture for dining and relaxing.

This quiet unit is recessed from nearby streets and is well-insulated for sound. Windows with views provide southern exposures that provide natural light all day.

The DeVargas Shopping Center includes several well known local restaurants, Starbucks, Albertsons Supermarket, Save-On Drugstore, Office Depot, Post Office, a 'six-plex' movie theater, Hastings video and DVD rentals, as well as many other smaller stores and boutiques. Santa Fe Spa is a walk up the hill and offers complete workout facilities. Fort Marcy Fitness complex is five minutes away by car, open to the public by the day, week or month and includes a full gymnasium, weights and aerobic equipment and indoor swimming pool.

Parking is right off 285/84 so commuters to Los Alamos, 'The Lab,' Santa Fe Opera, Taos, and other points north can completely avoid going through Santa Fe. Hop on 285/84 South, also known as St. Francis for easy access to the Plaza, Rail Yard District, Museum Hill, and all that Santa Fe has to offer.

If you don't have a car, you can take the Sandia shuttle from the Albuquerque Sunport or the Railrunner train. They drop off and pick up at all hotels and B&B's.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: I (Walter) worked in film production for nearly twenty years in New York. Took a break to study massage in Santa Fe. Ended up staying much longer than I thought I would. Developed a thriving private practice in restorative bodywork and pain management. In 2010, I switched careers again and will soon be completing medical school as an osteopathic physician and starting internship and residency. Cari does distance healing, intuitive guidance, coaching, massage, meditation, mediumship and fire dancing classes/performances. She moved to Santa Fe to study massage after having studied in Switzerland and taught in Japan. www.CariCohenSpiritualHealer.com

                  Why the Owner Chose Cielo Grande:
                  I bought this condo with the intention of it being a rental unit when I was setting up my massage practice. I loved the location. We get a lot of great feedback on how well thought out the unit is in terms of dishware, utensils, cookware etc., especially relative to other VRBO properties.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I enjoy the privacy, being close to town but not in the middle of it. The kiva fireplace layout feels very cozy to me. Being an 'end-unit' I installed an extra picture window that most other condos at Cielo Grande do not have, overlooking the courtyard to bring in more daylight.
