Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: My wife and I moved to Santa Fe from Phoenix, AZ to escape the heat and hubbub of a big city. I grew up in Albuquerque, so it's a bit of a homecoming for me.

Why the Owner Chose Santa Fe, NM, USA:
We love the dry climate and 360 days of sunshine, not to mention the ability to mountain bike, snowboard, fish or enjoy the local wineries all within a 30 minute drive. This particular area of Santa Fe is perfect for us because of it's proximity to great trail systems and easy access to downtown. It's also quiet and highlights the natural beauty of the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We fell in love with this house because of the great natural light and landscape. The interior has just the right amount of southwest style with modern amenities for a touch of contemporary living.
