Julia Takahashi purchased this cottage in 2003
Why Julia Takahashi chose Pojoaque
The Nambe River valley is a lovely, lush and historic area within a quick drive to Santa Fe. People in the area are friendly and helpful and one enjoys the beauty and quiet of living in the country with easy access to the arts, culture, food and activity of Santa Fe.
What makes this cottage unique
Enjoy morning coffee or an evening drink in the private walled patio. Walk out the front door and take a hike down to the arroyo and the barancas beyond or down to the Nambe River. Enjoy fresh tomatoes and other produce from the garden. If you like pets the three friendly cats and the happy dog will be down for a visit in the courtyard. There are several excellent restaurants nearby as well as a supermarket, drugstore, and gas stations. The owner is happy to provide help with your vacation plans and offers light concierge services. We have also helped set up the casita for special needs guests and locate medical services. If you don;t want to miss your workout or you would like to get started, my neighbor - Lenny Natural - is a certified personal trainer. Lenny has full gym facilities in a rustic setting a short walk from the Casita. Massages are also locally available at the Pojoaque Wellness Center, in Espanola or at the Buffalo Thunder Resort. Other pool and gym facilities are located in Pojoaque and Los Alamos. I have neighbors with tennis courts and equestrian facilities and can make arrangements for you.
