About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-8)

Enjoy charm, comfort and convenience when you visit Casa de la Luz ('House of Light'). This beautiful home on a lovely, quiet hill is just 7 blocks from the Santa Fe Plaza. This house boasts all the features of a classic adobe (vigas, beams, latillas, hand-troweled plastered walls, Saltillo tile, Mexican tile backslashes and accents, tin work and old wooden doors) however it feels light and modern, unlike many traditional homes. Perhaps its most unique aspect is the combination of a serene, peaceful setting in such close proximity to the color and excitement of downtown Santa Fe. What a pleasure to stroll down the hill to shop, dine and sight-see, with the option of returning to your quiet retreat whenever you tire of the bustle. And none of the hassle of driving or parking!

The house is decorated with original local art and hand crafted furnishings, and offers amenities for every season. In winter, get cozy by the wood burning fireplace, and in the warmer months, enjoy the many inviting outdoor spaces, including a balcony with wisteria trellis, a garden deck and a private walled terrace.

This newer-construction adobe boasts a great floor plan. The living room with fireplace, dining area and kitchen all open on to one another. These rooms, along with the mater bedroom with king size bed and full bath are on the first floor. On the lower level, there is a large open suite, including a sleeping alcove with king bed, full bathroom and sitting area opening onto a private garden. An extra queen size sleeper sofa is provided both upstairs and down for extra guests or children.

With 1600 square feet, the home is large enough to offer privacy for all without losing its intimate feel. Amenities include 3 flat-screen T.V.'s with cable, high-speed wireless internet, dishwasher, washer, dryer and air-conditioning. There is a one car garage with parking available for a second car.Special Note: This property has a permit from the City of Santa Fe for short-term rentals, Permit # 11-00104264.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: A pair of world travelers, we fell in love with Santa Fe many years ago. Between stints living in Asia, we spent as much time as possible in New Mexico. When we moved to Boulder, Colorado, ten years ago, we were able to fulfill our dream of buying a home in Santa Fe. We have enjoyed creating a space that is classic, stylish and comfortable, and that sits in close proximity to all that Santa Fe has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
We chose this historic Eastside neighborhood for its charm and atmosphere, as well as its proximity to downtown. Here, you can wander the lovely back lanes and look for the 1920 Cross of the Martyrs, located at the top of Rosario Hill on Paseo de la Loma (Accessible by stairs from Paseo de la Loma). If you climb the wooden steps to the hill where the cross stands, you will see the following history inscribed on a plaque: In 1598 a group of Spanish colonists, led by Juan de Onate of Zacatecas, Mexico, established a settlement along the banks of the Rio Grande north of present-day Espanola. In 1610 Governor Pedro de Peralta relocated the capital of the province to Santa Fe. Between 1610 and 1680, colonists moved into New Mexico, living primarily along the Rio Grande. Franciscan friars established missions at most of the Indian pueblos. Life was not always peaceful. In order to regain control of their homeland, in 1680, many pueblo people, led by Pope', a San Juan Indian, unitedto drive the colonists out. This action became what is known as the Pueblo Revolt. At this point, the rest of the settlers fled south to El Paso del Norte. It was not until 1693 that the province was peacefully resettled under the leadership of Governor Diego de Vargas.
