If you're like many people, you'll travel a good distance to get to our beautiful town. Once here, wouldn't it be great if you could tuck your car into a private, off-street parking spot and forget it? At Casa Amarilla, only eight blocks lie between you and the Plaza, the center of old town. In fact, all of Santa Fe's charm and history is easily accessible to you by foot from this lovely home. You can walk to over a dozen fine restaurants, the Georgia O'Keeffe and several other museums, movie theaters, bookstores, coffee shops, our top-rated Farmer's Market, grocery stores, the post office, the galleries of Canyon Road, and world-class shopping at Sanbusco Center and the Railyard. They are ALL within easy reach and the walking itself is at least half the fun. Exploring Santa Fe on foot is what brings its unique architecture, rich colors, and old world charm to life. Let Casa Amarilla be your starting point for entering the heart of the City Different.
As it is, Casa Amarilla's location is only part of its appeal. Set back in a deep garden lot, the house is a quiet retreat. A contributing historic adobe, its thick, rounded walls create a soothing, cool interior in the summer. In winter, radiant heat rises silently from under the brick floors throughout to create a cozy warm ambiance. A living room air conditioner cools the house during warm summer days. Eating al fresco on the shaded portal, you'll enjoy the sound of church bells and call of morning doves carried on the clear air.
The house is arranged so that the bedrooms are separated from the living and dining rooms by a long hall. Night owls won't disturb the slumber of anyone who prefers to turn in early. Throughout the house you'll find creative touches reflecting the whimsical folk art of our area. The living room, with its comfortable leather couches and chairs, is informal and inviting. The tile and tin work throughout the house reflects the style for which Santa Fe is famous.
