Property description

Wonderful location in oldest Historic District, on famous Canyon Road just above the art galleries, minutes to the Plaza. Superbly handcrafted and comfortable designers' cottage-home. Very Santa Fe with massive adobe walls, varnished log ceilings, and extraordinary woodwork and ironwork. Built on a low rock cliff, overhanging river & waterfalls flowing through one of the prettiest estate sites in the area. Mountain views and lovely riverside.

Surrounded by colorful, lush cottage gardens, 4 unique patios for exceptional living and entertaining. Smashing sunset views from cocktail balcony overlooking your own beautiful river valley with huge cottonwood trees and profuse wildlife.
Cheerful, sunny, private, colorful, and rich with character & surprises. Die- for cottage kitchen, charming bath, unlimited hot water. Heated stone & tile floors, extraordinary design and detailing, and beyond well- equipped and appointed. The essence of the arts and crafts traditions of Old Santa Fe!


Old Farm Estate: Unusual historic estate setting in superb location. Delicious living right in the designated Downtown and Core Area Historic District, just a few minutes from the Plaza, but secluded and private from Santa Fe's summer traffic and crowds. Casa Del Rio is a very good value for an unforgettable Santa Fe vacation.
