Private Homes, Historical Downtown house description

Permit # 14-00125643

'CASA COLORES' is just three blocks (a five minute stroll) to the Plaza and five blocks to art-studded Canyon Road. It nestles into the wooded knoll that overlooks the historic Santa Fe Plaza. Easy accessibility to all Santa Fe has to offer. Its quiet privacy, its safe residential neighborhood, and its flexibility in accommodating 1 to 6 guests. This haven adjoins the Old Fort Marcy Park with its 360-degree ring-of-mountain-views & breathtaking sunsets. Just beyond is National Forest.
CASA COLORES is our most spacious house and is set 170 feet back off Otero Street in a quiet natural bowl of cedar & sage. The home features a rich palette of 37 delightful & fully integrated colors & contains Southwest/International decor with museum quality artifacts & paintings. Three plush leather sofas, a piano, a gaming area, dining room with tribal carvings and contemplative alcove.
A separate, well-equipped kitchen is just off the dining room. There are two sleeping wings: In one, two spacious bedrooms share one bath. A separate queen-bed-&-bath-suite is quietly positioned on the opposite side of the home.
A secluded Ramada with barbeque provides a convivial covered outdoor gathering space. Casa Colores' 2000 square foot home provides 3 bedrooms & 2 baths to sleep up to 6 max.
