About the Property

House, 1 Bedroom + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

This amazing adobe hacienda is a Santa Fe Landmark and rarely available for vacation rental. Located in the heart of Santa Fe, very near the Guadalupe Church, this is the perfect place if you are looking for a one-of-a-kind house, with extensive room for entertaining, indoors and out. You can walk to the Plaza or the Railyard and Farmers' Market in only a few minutes. This unique 200 year old compound still retains extensive gardens and remarkable privacy; a surprising oasis in the center of town.
This historic property is only available a few times a year to a few lucky guests. Please e-mail us regarding dates requested and we will try our best to accommodate you.

This beautiful property is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and includes numerous lovely features hidden securely behind thick adobe walls and large wooden entry doors. The main living/dining room, called a 'Sala', dates from the 1800's and is 40 feet long with 12 foot ceilings and a fireplace. The formal dining table is also in this grand room and seats eight comfortably.

Beyond the Sala is a beautiful large interior courtyard with abundant flowers and a Mexican fountain. Bordering one side of the courtyard is a wide covered portal, called a 'Zaguan', which extends for over 60 feet from the front doors to the rear garden. This is a delightful place to relax in the Summer months and a teak dining table on the Zaguan extends to seat ten. You will be delighted by the peace and quiet of this walled interior garden.

From the Zaguan, one enters the old-fashioned country kitchen with gas range and large wooden island. One end of the kitchen has a pine table for casual dining. This room opens with large french doors into the courtyard as well as on to the long porch facing the south garden and fruit trees. Connected to the kitchen area is the study with comfortable seating and a flat screen TV. The study also has a high-quality queen-size sofa-bed which sleeps two if needed.

Beyond the study is the spacious Master Bedroom with a king bed and windows looking out in to the south garden. There is also a door leading on to the south porch.
The property includes two bathrooms, one is a 3/4 bath and includes the laundry area, located off of the Zaguan. The second bath has a tub/shower and is located near the bedroom. Please take a look at the attached floor plan to get a better understanding of the layout of rooms.

Although there is plenty of off-street parking, you will find that walking from the hacienda to many locations in town is an easy and delightful few minutes. Behind the hacienda, to the south, is an extensive green garden with many mature plants and fruit trees. This large property is one of the last in this neighborhood to remain intact for so many years.

Because of the unusual nature of this historic property, we are restricting its occupancy to a maximum of four persons, although you are welcome to entertain others.

Throughout the Summer months, this 'casa vieja' offers a truly magical indoor/outdoor lifestyle in a historic setting that is the essence of Santa Fe romance.
