Marfa is a mecca for minimalist and contemporary art pilgrims, writers, artists, film makers, collectors etc. It's a small town with big art, a great bookstore, great food, amazing artists and craftsmen and super friendly, interesting people.
Year Purchased: 2007
About: I am a clothing, jewelry & interiors designer and until 2012 had a store in Marfa called Fancy Pony Land. The store featured my clothing, train-squashed penny jewelry and artwork as well as work by artist friends from Marfa and around the country. In 2011 the store was featured in Vogue as one of their 20 favorite stores in 20 cities. The house reflects this artist-made sensibility. We now live in Big Bend National Park, where my husband is a Ranger. We lived in Marfa for 5 years and were super sad to leave the coolest small town in America and some of the world's best people. We come back whenever we can but when we're not there you can enjoy Marfa and the house for us.
Why Marfa, TX, USA:
We fell in love with Marfa after living in the tiny village of Redford (SE of Marfa on the Rio Grande) for 5 winters. It was really the people of Marfa and the good friends we made there that made us want to buy a house. This house was a good cute fixer-upper project for us. Just when we got it fixed up perfectly, we moved!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Marfa is a truly unique town that combines the sophistication and culture of a big city with the sweetness, friendliness and safety of a small town. People look out for one another and there is always something interesting going on. It is a town full of artists, characters and Texas tall tales.
