About the property

House, Master Bedroom + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 3)

Newly renovated by award-winning Design Builder Sharon Woods! Includes a wonderful new kitchen and lovely spacious master bath with tub, shower, and separate sinks. And a new guest bathroom with walk-in shower and onyx basin sink.

Beautiful gardens in the summer with 4 outdoor-living areas where you can enjoy the wonderful New Mexico weather during the day and at night.

Authentic historic adobe built in the 1870s with a newer addition used as studio by the artist and author Judy Chicago. Located in a peaceful private compound on Canyon Road in the heart of the historic east side of Santa Fe on a one-third-acre lot. It is nestled among large trees and presents the best of traditional Santa Fe set in a tranquil one-acre natural setting.

Walk to the galleries on Canyon Road without any parking hassles, since they are right outside of your door! Drop by Geronimo, The Compound, or El Farol for lunch and dinner – only two blocks away... Or continue walking to the Plaza to complete your tour of downtown Santa Fe.

Lush gardens, three water features, large trees, beautiful stone walls and walkways are all part of the landscaping which surrounds the house. Spacious portals and patios offer access to the gardens from the living room, the bedroom suites, and the kitchen.

There are three large outdoor garden areas with chairs, chaises, and tables: the main patio off of the living room, an outdoor dining patio off of the kitchen, and a romantic private spa patio with a Hot Spring spa. And there is even an area on the grounds with a gas fire place circle where you can sit outside by a fire warming yourselves while looking up at the wonderful skies of New Mexico.

The home has been beautifully restored and sleeps five, with two bedrooms, two full bathrooms, and one main floor with a second-story sleeping loft. It has been completely redecorated and has new furnishings and artwork throughout the house, including many special antiques, Native American weavings and pottery, and southwestern pieces.

There is a king bed in the master suite, a queen bed in the guest suite, and a twin bed in the loft. All bedrooms are supplied with high quality linens, down comforters, and down pillows.

There is a large HDTV with a DVD/VCR and stereo in the living room. There are TVs with DVDs and stereos in the master and guest suites. The home is fully equipped with high-speed Internet access, including wireless networking throughout house and grounds, a laser printer, a fax/copier, and unlimited local and long-distance telephone service.

You enter the spacious living room through double French doors. This room features colored concrete floors, vigas, and a classic fireplace. The adjacent dining room is cozy and bright. Sip cocktails, read and relax on the main-garden portal listening to the rock waterfall and viewing the changing light of our beautiful New Mexico skies.

The master suite has a large king bed and vigas with three skylights enabling you to view the stars as you relax and drift off to sleep. Outside of the master suite there is a cozy sitting room and library with vigas, built-in bookshelves, a Kiva fireplace, and French doors that lead to a romantic private spa patio with a Hot Spring spa and an artistic stone water feature. The bookshelves are filled with a comprehensive library of southwestern books covering such topics as travel, maps, art, decorating, gardening, cooking, and local mysteries.

A spiral staircase rises to a bright loft with vigas, two twin beds, and views of the skyline and mountains on the east side of Santa Fe.

The guest suite features an updated bath and a spacious bedroom with a tall four-poster queen bed. French doors lead out to the dining portal and fountain area. Large windows provide beautiful views into the gardens and of the sunrise in the morning.

Cooks will love the kitchen which features tiled counter tops, vigas, and skylights. It is equipped with modern stainless appliances including a microwave. The kitchen opens out to the dining portal with a large rustic table that seats 8.

About Brett Bachman, Owner

Hi! We live and work in Austin, but come to Santa Fe as much as we can. As you can see we love Indian Market. Last year we purchased this beautiful piece which had won best of category. We hope you enjoy our home as much as we do. It is a very special place. Elisbeth and Brett Bachman

Brett Bachman, Owner purchased this house in 2004

Why Brett Bachman, Owner chose Historic Eastside

We purchased this lovely, peaceful property on Canyon Road so that we could experience the best that the city had to offer, but also so that we could quickly reach the Ski Basin for hiking and Snowshoeing.

We love walking to the galleries and restaurants on Canyon Road in the afternoons and evenings without having to drive in our car and to find parking. And when we get back home it is so quiet and relaxing in our our house and yard, far from the hustle and bustle of Canyon Road and the Plaza.

On Friday afternoons we really enjoy walking down Canyon Road to all of the gallery openings. The Tea House is 1 block away and a perfect place for breakfast, lunch, or an afternoon tea break. And at night, you can walk to some of Santa Fe's best restaurants: Geronimo, El Farol, and The Compound which are 2 to 3 blocks away.

What makes this house unique

It's a very peaceful and private location that is just a minute or two from Canyon Road. It is beautifully renovated and has been decorated by a great designer who has worked for us for years, with beautiful art and antiques. It has an enclosed outdoor area with a hot tub and fountain which provides a wonderful place for relaxation, rejuvenation, and enjoyment of the sky, both during the day and at night. We just installed a new fire cauldron in the fire ring outside so you can enjoy the night sky as if you are around the campfire!

Perfect Santa Fe Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was the best place we've ever stayed in Santa Fe. Perfect combination of charming and elegant. The location, especially on Christmas Eve, cannot be beat. I just wish we could have stayed longer.

Amazing Home

  • 5 of 5

This home is beautiful, comfortable and has everything you need! It is located just a few blocks from Canyon Road galleries and at the same time, is very private. The home was immaculately clean. The owners have put great thought in to their home and maintain it well. We celebrated our 10th wedding anniversary here and could not have been more pleased!

Wonderful Canyon Road Home

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from a perfect 5 night stay at this lovely home. It is perfectly located next to all the galleries and restaurants on Canyon Road yet quiet and secluded. The house is great for couples who want to enjoy the Santa Fe arts scene. It has a wonderful layout, has been recently renovated and is immaculately clean. Highly recommend.

Spring Break

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our spring break stay at this Canyon Road home. It has everything you might need, is very comfortable and very quiet in spite of being close to many Santa Fe activities and locations. Arrangements were simple and the owner was easy to contact. We will return in other seasons and feel confident we will enjoy it just as we did this month. Kudos to the owners!

Relaxing enclave just off Canyon Road

  • 5 of 5

Great location, in a 3 house enclave. The shared private driveway opens to Canyon Road just down from the Teahouse- an ideal location yet quiet and tranquil. Beautiful landscape and grounds. Very well organized owner- every possible question was anticipated. Condition of the house was quite good and character was warm and welcoming. We visited as a couple, but the house would be great for a family. Definitely would stay again and recommend this home to others.

Near Canyon road galleries, comfortable secluded covered patio, beautiful Sante Fe style house

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love the outdoors and it was wonderful to find that the house had such a nice secluded covered patio with comfortable furniture. The neighborhood is very quiet and we enjoyed listening to the birds and hearing the breeze blowing through the trees. It was a short walk to the art galleries on Canyon road. The house is beautiful inside and fits very well with the Sante Fe style. We are looking forward to a return trip.

We also love snowshoeing during winter. And the birding at the Audubon Center is great. They have guided tours on Saturday mornings and it's about .5 mile from our house.

Other Activities: Snow shoeing, one of our favorites!

Golf: The Club at Los Campanas is our favorite! Check it out here

Ski: Ski Santa Fe is 20-30 minutes from our house

Taos Ski valley is about an hour away
