Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I grew up in Santa Fe and attended the nearby 'Garcia St. Club' as a young girl. I've always loved this part of Santa Fe and so pleased to own this authentic, yet modern, adobe. I left New Mexico to attend Stanford University in California and have lived in the Bay Area since, now residing in the Potrero Hill neighborhood of San Francisco. Professionally, I'm a veteran of several Internet start-ups most notably Match and TRUSTe (privacy solutions), and now Babierge, baby equipment rental platform. In San Francisco, I often rent my home and my guests invariably remark on its comfort, style and art. I hope you will will feel the same at my house on Garcia St.

Why the Owner Chose Historic Eastside, Santa Fe, NM, USA:
To me, Garcia St. is quintessentially Santa Fe. Beautiful homes and 'compounds' adorn both sides of the long boulevard as it climbs toward the Santa Fe foothills. My property is nestled in a historic compound with an exceptional setting and location. This is my first house on Garcia St., I recently bought and renovated the house next door, Casa de la Luz (VRBO 859493), which is a larger 3 bedroom home. Together they make an idea "compound" for larger groups and families. The home is quiet, warm and comfortable with all the authentic Santa Fe features you'd want: Viga ceilings, Kiva fireplace, hardwood floors and thick adobe walls. This home also offers air conditioning, updated gourmet kitchen and bathrooms, large outside portal in back and private portal and hot tub off the Master bedroom. The home is expertly decorated and includes all the conveniences such as wireless Internet, HD TVs, and Sonos sound. Check out the incredible New Mexico art.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When you enter the quiet lane and you will immediately feel the serenity of the natural peace and quiet and take in the fresh mountain air. On foot (and through the secret shortcut) you can easily explore the old adobe filled neighborhoods, jaunt over to Museum Hill, take an art amble on Canyon Road, and go to the historic Plaza - less than a mile - for the many restaurants and entertainment options. During the winter, easy access up to the Santa Fe ski area (16 miles).
