About the owner: I own this one property in Santa Fe which has been my home for decades. I love my street and neighborhood and have happy memories of my children playing ball in the quiet streets. I have seen the fruit trees grow from little slips into mature giants producing cherries, apricots, peaches many years. I retired from teaching French in a local high school - then, since beginning to rent my casita, I have enjoyed meeting people from many countries. My guest book/scrap book is full of their photos, mementos and the stamps of their foreign countries. Tiling the bath, kitchen and floors myself was satisfying. My grand daughter says I'm married to my garden - I do work on it!
Why the Owner Chose Private Homes: I moved here to be near the old center of this historic town.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Casita du soleil is six-tenths of a mile from the Plaza - a flat walk on quiet streets. Three tiny blocks to Sage Bakery, 5 tiny blocks to Whole Foods.
A few minutes to Railyard District of galleries, restaurants, SF Farmers' Market. Tranquility in the middle of everything.
