Property description

This adobe home is 1300 sq.feet. It has one master bedroom, a room with a single bed and one big bathroom.. The home sits on two lots, has covered parking and a giant fenced in backyard. The kitchen and dining areas are spacious, beautifully lit with natural light. and very well furnished with modern appliances and a big dining table. it's set up for serious cooking. it's in a nice quiet neighborhood and a great place to look at the stars on a clear night.
It is an active residence for me, so it definitely has some personality.
There's a lot of music, books, a piano, a telescope and all kinds of odds and
ends depending on when i was there last.
It's always equipped with clean linens, towels, dishes and vacuumed floors.
There is a caretaker who looks after the place and the cleaning.
All I ask is that you enjoy yourself and please treat my property kindly.

Car: Recommended

Marfa is a one of a kind town. It's a peaceful West Texas getaway, with a high desert climate. There are numerous art galleries, fantastic restaurants and food trailers, great bars, one of the best book stores in the state and it's all easily experienced by walking or biking from this location. On a clear night there's a good chance you will see more stars than you ever have.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2013

About the owner: I am a guitar player who lives in Austin and Marfa. I've been lucky to play with a lot of great songwriters and bands over the past few decades. I've spent a lot of years touring and on the move.

Why the Owner Chose Marfa, TX, USA:
Over the years I've realized that the far west region of Texas is where I hope to live full time. This home came into my life through some good friends and it's one of the happiest places i know. This area is one of the most inspiring places I have ever been. I hope you find as much peace and rejuvenation here as I have.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I loved this place the minute I walked in it. The adobe walls, the morning light coming through the dining room windows, the cool fresh air and the quiet. It's also a twenty minute walk to downtown Marfa.
