About the Property
2 Bedroom 1 Bath Quiet Area With Mountain Views
If you are looking for the charm and warmth of a southwestern New Mexico adobe experience, Casa Serena can take you there...and back to a simpler time. With its hand peeled Viga ceiling beams in every room,thick adobe walls and cozy Kiva fireplace...it doesn't get much more authentically 'Southwest' than this. Our two bedroom, one bath 'edge of town' retreat is surrounded with native planting, provided with plenty of off-street parking...dine and relax outdoors in the sun or shade... in the south or east patio or enjoy the great views from the front porch. Enjoy a soak or shower in our graciously remodeled bathroom with its extra long and deep tub. With hardwood floors in the living room and bedrooms you'll be surrounded by natural building materials (that are also easy on the feet). Take advantage of our location to nearby Historic Downtown Silver City and bike or walk to great restaurants, galleries and shops.
Casa Serena is provided with the following amenities:
TWO BEDROOMS...master is provided with a comfortable double bed. A twin is provided in the second bedroom/office
SOFA BED... is provided in the living room for visitors of our long term quests

COOLING...provided by central evaporative cooling along with a window mounted refrigerative unit in the master bedroom for those few humid days of late July and August.

At an elevation of 6000 ft.,the Silver City/Grant County area has pleasant, high desert summers with plenty of sunshine and refreshing 'monsoon' rains. Winters are mild with occasional snows that melt quickly with the strong sunlight and clear blue New Mexico skies. Being at the end of the continental divide high country, a trip North quickly gets you into the Spruce, Fir and Ponderosa pine high country...head South and you're in the rolling high desert grass-land and cattle country... complete with 'real deal' working cattle ranches.
Year Purchased: 2000
About the owner: We are native Californians smitten by Southern New Mexico, its own timeless beauty, history and magic... also its uncanny similarity to parts of California 'Gold Country' and other great places we have lived or visited. We left California after selling our interest in 'TEKA-ILLUMINATION', an outdoor lighting manufacturing company in Templeton near San Luis Obispo. We can be found at TATIANA MARIA GALLERY during the day at our 1884 historic building in the Historic District of downtown Silver City. Tatiana started this business from a porch sale in Rosendale, NY then known as 'MIDTOWN ANTIQUES'
Why the Owner Chose Silver City, NM, USA:
We acquired the property next to Casa Serena in 1997 while still living and working in California. After an extensive renovation of 1412 Mississippi (Casa Encantada) and having always been intrigued by the gracious little adobe next door we finally purchased it in 2000. It had always seemed like a 'companion' home and we later discovered that the properties had been built roughly at the same time from 'on-site' clay and were both built by a WNMU university professor. A quick walk around and through Casa Serena will explain without words how the land of enchantment enchants.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Before us, Casa Serena was the home of the dean of women at WNMU...namesake of the university tennis courts that are dedicated to her. We have pictures of her and her friends around the dinner table having a great time...her landscaping efforts won the Silver City garden club 'best of show' in 1972. There is a unique spirit about Casa Serena that is better felt than explained, it is part of our quiet neighborhood, great neighbors and proximity to everything we enjoy.
