Owner info

Year Purchased: 1994

About the owner: I've lived in New Mexico for 35 years, loving it the entire time.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
Close to town but has the old world feeling of the Santa Fe I first met in 1979. Quiet, fresh mountain air; I walk up my road and I am in the Santa Fe National Forest. Beautiful views of the mountains the entire drive out.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The lights of the city are occluded which makes twice as many stars visible in the night sky. I love watching meteor showers from my hot tub! It is exquisitely quiet and peaceful and only 15 to 20 minutes to the plaza all along a graceful mountain road without traffic lights and only a few stop signs, no traffic!
