Property description

EXQUISITE ADOBE IN HISTORIC EAST SIDE--WALK 3 BLOCKS TO CANYON ROAD to enjoy scores of the city’s best galleries and restaurants, THEN WALK OR TAKE FREE PUBLIC SHUTTLE TO PLAZA AND OTHER POINTS. DOG FRIENDLY. Our beautiful, private, spacious old walled and coyote-fenced adobe compound is in a colorful, historic Santa Fe neighborhood. Master bedroom has a king bed and a twin bed; second bedroom has twin-size trundle beds and doubles as an office with desk, chair, and file cabinet; living room has a queen sofabed. Bathroom has two sinks, tub with shower--all completely tiled. Skylights; three kiva fireplaces; hardwood, tile, and slate floors. Tinwork throughout by award-winning Santa Fe artist. Chef's kitchen, hand-carved dining table seats 8, hand-carved doors; cove and viga-latilla ceilings. Lots of closets and storage space. FREE PUBLIC SHUTTLE: The Santa Fe Pick-Up makes three stops on Canyon Road before heading to the Plaza and other points. Or walk to the Plaza in 20 minutes or so. It's easy to leave your car parked on our enclosed grounds and spend time in town.

Designed for privacy and surrounded by extensive, beautiful xeric native gardens. Mature organic fruit trees and shrubs, pines, and lots of flowering plants create an oasis, perfuming the mountain air and sheltering numerous birds (including hummingbirds) and butterflies. Sit on rustic benches under the shade of old organic apple, hawthorne, and sugarberry trees and enjoy the sights, sounds, and smells. Or sit on the 1000-square-foot flagstone patio and enjoy a picnic or barbecue--plenty of seating and a gas barbecue grill for you and your guests. Landscaping is by a well-known Santa Fe designer.

This lovingly renovated home-away-from-home is furnished with full electronic system including flat screen HDTV, DVD, and Ipod player, interesting and comfortable furniture, outstanding art collection. Books focus on NM art, birds, butterflies, wildflowers, fiction, etc. Parking area, inside the walled grounds, is surrounded by chamisa (covered with yellow flowers September-October), pinon and ponderosa pine, organic fruit trees, and beds of shrubs and flowers.

It is a 15-minute walk to St. John’s College and the Atalaya and Dale Ball Trailheads. A 10-minute drive will take you to the Audubon preserve, and in 30 minutes or less you'll be at the Santa Fe Ski Basin, 10000 Waves Japanese Spa, or the Santa Fe Opera.

REPRESENTATIVE RENTERS' QUOTES:
“I just wanted to let you know that Julie and I had a great time and Santa Fe and really enjoyed the apartment. Thank you very much for everything. It’s a great place. We also took your recommendations and went to La Choza and Café Sena, and hiked the Atalaya trial. It all made for a great vacation for us.
Again, thank you.”
Best regards,
Pete

“We really had the best time and will be in touch about coming back next year.
Is there anything you would like me to do before we leave?
Thank you again, we really had a great time!”
Fondly,
Marylyn

“We've been in a bit over a week and I haven't yet thanked you for your kind note and lovely bottle of wine - thank you for such a nice welcome!
Anyway, this photo was taken the day we arrived as we were about to set out on our first walk. Bear had been in the car for 3 days; he was ready to go! We've been on many outings since with his favorite being off leash on the many mountain trails full of other happy canines.
We love the house and its many charms. I feel like I'm just getting to know it, now that things have finally quieted down. I'd love to know the history of it if you get the chance.
Hope this finds you well and, again, thank you for everything.”
Lisa

“I've been enjoying the house, and Santa Fe's great fall weather-
I'm going to hate to leave.
I hope everything is going well with you all!!
Happy Halloween!”
Philip

“Thank you. What a wonderful house you have! We certainly want to come back. There is so much that we did not get to do. We are eagerly anticipating a return trip.”
Janet

“We have enjoyed our time here very much. Living in this neighborhood has given us an entirely different Santa Fe experience than we have had in the past. I have explored the area and learned my way around town, which has been a lot of fun. All in all, it has been delightful. I hate to go home where the heat has been over 100 for a long time- 110 yesterday! Thanks for sharing your lovely space.”
Ginger

“The stay was very enjoyable. We were wondering if your place is free in Aug. If so we would be interested in renting it again?”
Rachel

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1986

About the owner: I am a retired consultant to nonprofits, mostly colleges and universities, but also hospitals, museums, etc. Before that, I was a college teacher and administrator. I love Santa Fe's cultural richness, arts, great food (especially green chile and sopapillas, which in their delectable northern New Mexico form are found nowhere else, in my view), spectacular scenery with such a variety of ecosystems, wonderful hiking, birding and other wildlife viewing.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
It's old Santa Fe at its best--beautifully and very comfortably appointed and maintained both indoors and out, with mature landscaping by a famous designer. In minutes we can be on the trail hiking up Atalaya Peak, summit 9,121. Afterward, we can walk three blocks to dinner at Geronimo's, the Compound, or El Farol and all the shops and galleries on Canyon Road. The home is in an historic Santa Fe neighborhood; yet we have extensive, secluded grounds with beautiful, private native, xeric gardens, organic fruit trees, and a huge, completely enclosed and private patio.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Great privacy and beauty very close to everything. Flocks of butterflies and birds, including hummingbirds, live here because the property is filled with mature native trees, shrubs, and perennials, and organic fruit trees. Sitting on the 1000-square-foot enclosed, private and quiet patio, or strolling paths by the front beds, it's hard to believe that we're minutes to Canyon Road and the Plaza.
